See Paris from the sky during a microlight flight

Want to see Paris from the sky? Well, you can take a microlight and fly into the beautiful skies of the city.

There are several airfields with private microlights flown by professional pilots.

A microlight is a small motorized aircraft used for short-distance flights.

Take a look at the stunning Paris skyline from above

At the Montparnasse Tower observation deck, you can enjoy an eagle's eye view of Paris by paying a reasonable fee.

This landmark is the second-highest point in the city, and the 59th floor offers an unrivaled view of the skyline. In addition, its elevator is the fastest in Europe!

Go on a treasure hunt in Paris and escape the crowds

If you're wary of avoiding those slow tourist and leisure walks in Paris, explore the city's hidden gems while enjoying a treasure hunt.

Follow the clues and solve the puzzles to reach the most underrated parts. This is a great activity for those who are visiting with family or friends.

Just run a Google search for Paris escape rooms and book.

Walk through the catacombs of Paris

Under the streets of Paris lies a spooky 200-mile-long labyrinth called the Empire of Death.

The dark tunnels will take you to the gruesome history and remains of about six million 18th century Parisians.

With walls dotted with skulls and bones, the tourist attraction is not as scary as you think and is well worth a visit.

See the whole country in just a couple of minutes!

France is a pretty big country, so it's impossible to cover everything as most travellers have limited time and budget.

However, with France Miniature, you can explore a smaller version of the country!

Thanks to the miniature versions of famous monuments, castles, forts, lakes, gardens and streets, you can get a great taste of France without spending money.

Earlier, TravelWise told you why you should visit Paris in 2024 and what travel format to choose to enjoy this city to the fullest.
