The majestic layout of the city with its wide boulevards, monuments like the Arch d’Triomph and the Eiffel Tower,and the bright lights of the Avenue des Champs-Elysées invites walking but make sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes. The best way to see the city is to choose one or two areas for each day, and explore on foot. You can get the metro or a taxi to get from one neighborhood to another.
Even a brief list of the must-sees in Paris includes the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe, the Jardin des Tuileries, the Left Bank, the Panthéon Church with the mausoleums of famous writers, scientists and other prominent people, the Luxembourg Gardens, and the Moulin Rouge. The soaring gothic architecture of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, sadly damaged in a major fire recently, has inspired faith and community for centuries and is still worth a visit to view the exterior sculptures and the building’s famous flying buttresses and gargoyles. The exquisite stained glass at Sainte-Chapelle and the sweeping views of the city from the steps of the Basilica of Sacré-Cœur are a must for all visitors.
The museums of Paris hold some of the greatest cultural riches of the world, from ancient times to the present. Paris is also home to a vibrant contemporary art scene and the world of street art and performances is a masterpiece in itself. Take a trip to Versailles to see the 17th-century glitter and opulence that have become a byword for style.
Paris is very much a city of neighborhoods, and each arrondissement or district has its own character. Montmartre is like an artsy village enclave, the Latin Quarter is where the institutions of learning are located, and Saint-Germain-des-Prés is full of boutiques and restaurants.
When you need a pause from the historical and cultural riches, take the time to savor the little joys that add up to the magic of Paris. Stroll arm in arm along the embankment of the Seine, discover the everyday neighborhoods where people live, the boulangeries and fromageries where they shop for their bread and cheese, and neighborhood bistros full of life and character.
You will find every kind of accommodation from famous luxury hotels and converted aristocratic mansions to small apartments, all with their own unique Parisian charm. It can be convenient to stay in a centrally-located hotel close to all major attractions, but you will also enjoy a stay at boutique hotels in neighborhoods like Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Montmartre.
