Gastronomy, haute couture, art and history
Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world. With some of the most awe inspiring attractions, visitors will merely scratch the surface of this rich, culturally diverse city. A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Eiffel Tower. Take the lift or climb the stairs to the second floor. If you have a stomach for heights, take the lift to the third floor for breathtaking views of the city. At night, the tower shines like a beautiful beacon on the Paris skyline.
Visit the Arc de Triomphe, Napoleon Bonaparte’s homage to victory. Located at the top of the Champs Elysees, a tree-lined avenue brimming with shops and hotels, this is an ideal spot to linger for a bit of people watching or some luxury shopping. Visit in winter and the tree-lined avenue will be lit up with Christmas lights, adding to the feeling of romance.Take a trip to the Louvre and gaze at the Mona Lisa’s famous smile. During the summer, you may have to battle with the crowds but museum houses other beautiful works of art and sculptures to enjoy, so a visit will be well worth the effort.
A bit of ooh la la
Paris is famous for its fine dining restaurants, cafés and pastry shops. For lunch, tuck into a traditional Croque Monsieur, packed with ham and melted cheese or the famous steak frites (steak and chips). Treat yourself to a freshly cooked sweet or savoury crepe or buy some melt-in-the-mouth rainbow-coloured macaroons.
Try some delicious French cheeses in one of the local fromageries, or ask to see the ‘chariot de fromage’ or cheese trolley, if dining out.
