Paris is the most visited city in the world. It is famous for its beauty, architecture, food and wine – and haute couture fashion.
If it is your first time, visit the places you have only read about: the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre and Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral (the12th-century ecclesiastical masterpiece). And Paris is made for walking, so stroll along the wide, tree-lined Haussmannian boulevards and watch the world go by as you sit at an outdoor cafe.
You cannot visit Paris without having a cruise around the city. Take a Bateaux Mouche dinner cruise. Almost all of the most important monuments are visible from the Seine River.
Shopping and dining
Of course you will shop. You may want to enquire about some of the shopping tours that take you to discount fashion houses.
You will eat and over-eat: pastries, chocolate, wine, cheese – food of all kinds. It is the city where dieting is forbidden!
Paris is always magical by night. You may want to experience a show at the Moulin Rouge or the Lido Cabaret.
Buying a Paris Pass may be useful. Some include a two-day hop-on hop-off bus. Get off as often as you like. It includes free entry to over 60 attractions.
Visit Montmartre and wander the cobblestone streets as you ascend from the bohemian streets to a breathtaking view of Paris.
Finally, leave Paris for a day and visit the incredible Palace of Versailles and its gardens.
