Known as the “City of Love” and also the “City of Lights”, the allure of France’s capital isn’t just due to the number of wonderful things to do in Paris, but the ambience of the city itself.
There’s a Paris for every season, whether it’s cosying up in a cafe in winter, strolling through the leafy parks in Autumn, opting for some Seine-side beach relaxation in the sizzling summers or shopping up a storm…. well, anytime!
Art, culture, history, food, drink, nightlife and romance – this is a city that truly has everything! Check out the guides and tips below for our recommendations on Paris attractions.
There are so many things to do in Paris, it’s little wonder that this one of the most popular city break destinations in the world!
Paris has more recognisable landmarks than any other city, but the most famous is undeniably the Eiffel Tower – the most prominent symbol of both Paris and France.
Caution: Take your loved one to the top of the Tower and they will most likely be expecting a marriage proposal!
Forget all the grown-up stuff like romance and fashion - kids (and big kids) can’t miss the chance to meet Mickey and pals in the flesh at Disneyland Paris! Advance bookings even include fast-track onto many of the biggest rides!
You can’t help but be seduced by the beauty of the city and one of the most romantic and relaxing ways to see its wonderful sights is undoubtedly on a Seine river cruise. Celebrating a special occasion? The top of Montparnasse Tower is the perfect setting for a glass of Champagne (of course) as the city sparkles below.
It’s impossible to ignore the allure of Parisian cuisine, from sampling the local cheese and wine to breakfast at a quaint boulangerie or fine dining at a triple-Michelin-starred gastronomic palace.
If shopping is on the agenda, you could do worse than one of the world’s fashion capitals. As well as getting a head-start on international trends at the designer boutiques, you can spend hours browsing the vintage shops, flea markets and tucked-away bookshops, or sampling the wares at gourmet food and wine stores.
It might seem like there’s just no end to Paris’ attractions, and they certainly don’t disappoint on the culture front, with one of the world’s biggest museums, The Louvre, taking centre-stage amongst scores of impressive museums and fine art galleries.
