As the birthplace of the Age of Enlightenment and a constant trendsetter in the world of fashion, Paris has cemented itself as one of the world's must-see cities. In a country known for exceptional food, style and culture, the capital delivers on all three counts.
The city is split into 20 districts (known as 'arrondissements'), which all display their own character. Le Marais (in the fourth arrondissement) is famed for its medieval, meandering lanes, full of traditional patisseries and chic boutiques. The area is also home to the iconic cathedral of Notre-Dame, considered one of the best examples of French Gothic architecture.
The seventh arrondissement is home to some of Paris' most famous landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides and Musée d'Orsay. Neighbouring districts also have plenty to offer, such as the famous Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe and Opéra Garnier. In the centre of Paris you'll find the world-famous Musée du Louvre, home to tens of thousands of works of art, including da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa'. Further outside the city, but still worth a visit, are the mysterious Catacombs and the Château de Versailles.
Each French city takes pride in its cuisine and Paris is no exception, offering some of the world's best food. You'll find everything from three-Michelin-starred establishments like Restaurant Guy Savoy, to laid-back bistros like La Mascotte.
Offering fun for visitors of all ages, Disneyland Paris is located to the east of the city, in the suburb of Marne-la-Vallée and can be reached easily by train.

Loved it all. Weather was great for February.Lots of nice places to eat.Bought a 2day city ticket so did the bus tour on and off the metro went to the Louvre and up the Eiffel Tower and had a fab meal in the Opera area of the city
Funny enough it took the Corona virus for me stay in a decent hotel, because they were forced to lower prices, but my stay was absolutely amazing and I know the city will recover soon from the crisis.
As i come very often for me Paris is best but as i say we enjoy only 4 days of holiday as their was confinement and have to return back to my country,my elder family was bad luck as it was first time they come and they have not had opportunity to visit the museum , shops etc
I have been when I was younger, and this time - while I did have fun in Paris - it was definitely tainted by the growing risk of Pandemic at the time. We managed to see some of the beautiful tourist sites just days before it locked down. I definitely would go again to properly experience the culture, history, food and night life I know the city has to offer. Still, the views were second to none.
Romantic city with wonderful atmosphere restaurants, delicious wines and magnificent Elf tower and old city . City of fashion, good food and friendly people. Try macarons, maddlen cookies, cheese, onion soup and wines.
Paris... I am coming there so often and every time I open something new about it. If before I stayed only in Saint Germaine or in Montmartre then this time I stayed in a Latin Quartier. This was a very good idea if to count that it is the Pilgrimage for Jazz Lovers. So many cafes are on each corner with a very good food. I found it so poetic to write in a "Loulou" brasserie on Boulevard Saint Germaine. Also to walk along the Seine river was very pleasant and to sit in parks. Paris... I definitely will come again many many times...
