Explore culture and museums around Paris Champs-Elysées

Paris Eiffel Tower view

The first thing you’ll notice from the Radisson Blu Hotel Paris Champs Elysées when you arrive is the amazing view of the Arc de Triomphe. Plus the city’s best attractions are only a stone’s throw away. Get ready to be completely immersed in the Parisian and French world of culture! Located on Avenue Marceau, get the day off to a good start with a generous breakfast in the hotel, just steps away from a first Parisian icon. And get ready for some serious sightseeing!

Sightseeing in Paris

Situated only two kilometers from the hotel, the Eiffel Tower is simply not to be missed! Make your way up to the second floor on a sunny day and enjoy a panoramic view encompassing the whole of Paris, from the Champ-de-Mars below to distant Sacré-Cœur on the horizon. From there, head to Quai Branly Museum and take a moment to admire the living wall of greenery decorating the museum’s façade. This summer, the L’Afrique des routes exhibition shows a continent still relatively unknown yet so intertwined with human history. This fascinating exhibition offers a fresh take on this ancient land.

Fancy something to eat? Cross Alma Bridge and grab some lunch at Manko-Paris, a Peruvian restaurant located at the former Drouot auction house at 15 avenue Montaigne. Order yourself a ceviche or try something off the Peruvian grill!

Museums in Paris

Take a whole afternoon to visit the Louvre Museum. With 460,000 items on display, it’s the world’s largest museum! Its extraordinary holdings include famous works like Leonardo de Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Holbein’s Portrait of Erasmus, and Eugène Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People. And that’s just the beginning. Collections of Egyptian, Greek, and Oriental antiquities, not to mention sculptures, Islamic Arts, and many other things all clamor for your attention. They say it takes around 100 hours to see everything, so you’ll definitely have to pick and choose!

For something a bit smaller, head toward the Eugène Delacroix Museum. It should only take you 10 minutes on foot to get there. The museum is showcasing the admiration other artists of the same period had for Delacroix in a beautiful exhibition of exceptional artwork. It runs until August 28th.
