Private Louvre Museum Tour

Paris Tourist Attractions

Paris city is a well-known tourist destination with all kinds of attractions that a modern hub can offer. However, it has no dearth of quiet places where you can just spend some time in silence and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are several campsites, where you can pitch your tent and just enjoy the dreamy views of the city. Below are a few campsites that are worth visiting after your private Louvre Museum tour.

Bois De Boulogne

This is the same place, which the French Royalty used once to go hunting. The 25-acre expanse of Bois de Boulogne is a great campsite with an alluring presence of the River Seine just beside it. The best thing is that the place offers an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower, while the city lights make for great visuals during nighttime.

You can acquire a spot here for about 20 Euros, but note that this is subject to change depending on the season. The place is easily accessible as it is located in the 16th arrondissement, about 15 minutes away from Champs-Elysees. It is open throughout the year and has slots for 435 pitches simultaneously.

Maison-Lafitte

Maisons Laffitte, which translates to City of Horses, is a small town located 11 miles from the center of Paris. It is adorned with a 17th Century chateau, restaurants, plenty of cafés, and a famous horse track. The campsite here is located in the middle of an island on the River Seine. It is easily accessible as it is located just a few minutes away from the city. There is space available for 351 tents, campers, and caravans. The prices begin from 15 Euro a night for two persons.

Camping Huttopia Versailles

This is a campsite located in Versailles and is mostly run by young people. The best catch is that the place has a pool. Hence, it is a great place to be in the summers, when you could swim in the water to cool off the summer heat. The place has a forestry feel to it, as it is packed with chestnut trees. It is located at a distance of about a ten-minute walk from the Porchefontaine RER train station. The site is huge, and hence, it would be a great place to go biking as well. There is also a boulangerie and a Carrefour store to pick up groceries.
