Navigating the best immersive images of popular Paris sites

Bonjour, SVRFers! Today we’ll be taking you through a collection of the top 360 / VR video and image tours of one of the most sought after tourist destinations.

La Tour Eiffel

The Eiffel Tower today stands as one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world. Visitors can walk up to the first two floors of the Eiffel Tower then take the elevator all the way up to the top, where they’ll be treated with vast panoramic views of the city. View in 360.

Arc de Triomphe

Situated at the western end of the Champs-Élysées, the towering Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoléon to honor the Grande Armee during the Napoleonic Wars. The arch, which is the largest of its kind in the world, is adorned with several impressive, intricately carved sculptures. View in 360.

Champs Elysées

One of Paris’ most famous boulevard that stretches more than a mile from the glittering obelisk at Place de la Concorde to the foot of the Arc de Triomphe is a shopper’s mecca. View in 360.

Notre Dame

Located right along the picturesque River Seine, the Notre-Dame Cathedral is considered a Gothic masterpiece and is often regarded as one of the best Gothic cathedrals of its kind in the world. There is no entrance fee, even if you want to climb to the top of the cathedral! View in 360.

Sacred Heart Basilica of Monmarte (Sacré Coeur)

You’ll likely be left in awe with the panoramic views found from atop the Sacré-Coeur’s (meaning “Sacred Heart”) outdoor staircase. But for an even better photo op, climb all 300 steps to the top of the dome. It is also suggested to make a trek during sunset and if you stick around long enough, you’ll be able to see the Eiffel Tower’s sparkling lights illuminate the skyline. View in 360.

Chateau de Versailles

The Palace of Versailles used to be the former French royal residence and center of government. Every year, millions of travelers make the trek 10 miles west-southwest of Paris to bear witness to the chateau’s world-famous grandeur in person. Here’s a preview of one of the rooms, The Hall of Mirrors, with a painted ceiling by Charles Le Brun inside the chateau View in 360.

Pont des Arts (Lovelock Bridge)

This bridge was famous for a tradition where couples ‘lock in their love’ by placing padlocks on the bridge and then throw the key into the Seine River from 2006–2016. However, when the weight of the locks became too much for the bridge to hold, the government removed the locks. View in 360.

Centre Pompidou

The Pompidou is a modern and contemporary art museum designed uniquely with its insides (piping, plumbing, elevators, escalators) exposed on the exterior. Inside the inside-out museum you’ll find one of the largest collections of modern and contemporary art in the world (more than 100,000 pieces of art.) View in 360.
