SiteSee list number 2 of the top 25 places to visit in Paris
Notice: Site See top attractions and places to visit in France are based on information supplied directly from the attraction etc, Tourism Offices, official statistics offices such as INSEE, UNESCO and the like.
The list has taken a long time to research and compile and changes are often made but are correct at the time of publishing although most tourism offices report figures for the previous year.
We have intentionally kept Paris seperate and also Disneyland Paris is not included as they do not release visitor statistics but it is safe to say they would be number 1 if they were included. The Paris top 25 can be found here
