About Paris

Including tips for the best time to visit Paris

As the birthplace of the Enlightenment and a trailblazer in the fashion world, Paris has cemented itself as one of the world's must-see cities. In a country known for exceptional food, style, and art, the capital delivers on all three counts.

The city is split into 20 districts ("arrondissements"), each with its own distinct vibe. Le Marais (in the 4th arrondissement) is famous for its narrow, medieval streets full of traditional bakeries and chic boutiques. The area is also home to the iconic cathedral of Notre-Dame, one of the best examples of French Gothic architecture.

The 7th arrondissement is home to some of the city's most famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, and Musée d'Orsay. Neighboring districts have plenty to offer, too, like the iconic Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, and Opéra Garnier. In the center of Paris, you'll find the world-famous Musée du Louvre, featuring tens of thousands of classic artworks including da Vinci's "Mona Lisa." Right outside the city are the mysterious Catacombs and the Château de Versailles.

Paris, like every French city, takes pride in its cuisine and offers some of the world's best food. You'll find everything from 3-Michelin-star spots like Restaurant Guy Savoy to laid-back bistros like La Mascotte.

Promising fun for all ages, Disneyland Paris is in the eastern suburb Marne-la-Vallée, just a quick train ride from the center.

March 25, 2019

Dream city, I've lived here for 9 months a few years ago but we keep on coming back. Some highlights out of the usual touristic places that will make you fall in love with Paris: - rue des Iris and the few streets surrounding it. Just go in there. Trust me. It's like getting in a fairy tale all of a sudden, while in a metropolis. - the sacre coeur BY NIGHT, the white and black contrast makes it an incredible view, all another thing compared to the daytime cacophonic crowded whipped-cream like building. Get on the back of the sacre coeur, get down the stairs on the righ, then turn around and look at the church from the bottom of the stairs. Amazing. The nearby church as well, with the 3 crucifixes in the yard, during the night gets really cool. - sathurday morning, rue Monge, the market. Nice experience. - eat at la creperie de Josselin, mind the "de", there is another one just 10 m away called similarly without the "de". The creperie de Josselin serves THE BEST CREPES AND GALETTES EVER. Seriously. Ridiculously good, and the lady handling the place is incredible to see, so energetic despite the age. I have lived in Paris, as I said, and tried many places. THIS IS INCREDIBLE. Try the morbihannaise. - eat the best confit de canard maison you'll ever have, in a very cool old place, au pied du fouet, rue saint benoit. Cheap and super tasty. - have breakfast with the best croissants I've ever had at Laurent Duchene, in the 15th. The croissant au chocolat is out of this world. The sweet pretzel as well, and the croissant au beurre is the best you'll ever have. I could go on for much more, there are so many little places, spots of unexpected beauty hidden everywhere, but the best advice I can give is: get lost. Just go, walk around, without worrying about where you are going. Just go and let the city show you its best. You won't regret it.

The city of love is truly amazing, be it for sight seeing or just enjoying wine and bread(the french way). It has loads to offer you in terms of places to visit. The night life is well known and the city has unlimited bars/restros where you can enjoy the ambience while sipping your wine. Ohh n not to forget, Paris offers the best breads and desserts.

We loved Paris! The people were very nice and cordial. The food and service were wonderful. Transportation was easy. It was not as cold as we expected in December/ January. We will definitely be back.

It’s very crowded with swarms of tourists ( of which i’m one) but away from the main attractions there are wonderful neighborhoods to walk through, good, often great food at most cafes and brasseries, a super public transport system, lovely views, and friendly people. I love Paris.

It is a beautiful city which can’t be fully appreciated on a quick visit to the main attractions. I prefer to discover individual parts of the city slowly and over several visits to truly experience the city.
