Paris short breaks

Introduction

Paris is one of the world's great cities. It's a city of grand ambition and a wealth of cultural landmarks, architectural wonders and fascinating stories surrounding its rich history. The City of Light has attracted visitors for centuries and is considered one of Europe's - if not the world's - most beautiful and idiosyncratic cities.

Whether you're quietly browsing the city's fine galleries or drinking with the trendy set at a bar on the Left Bank, dipping into the vintage shops of Le Marais or enjoying a glass of Champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower, Paris is always just so distinctively Paris.

Paris's top tourist spots alone are enough to fill a weeklong tailor-made trip of the French capital, and Paris's landmarks are seemingly endless. Wind down the pleasant banks of the Seine and you'll pass Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay (where you could spend half a lifetime admiring the works), the Grand Palais and of course, the Eiffel Tower.

Away from the river there's the Champs-Élysees, the Centre Pompidou and Père Lachaise cemetery, where Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde are buried. There are a thousand cafes to enjoy a café au lait, a thousand terraced bars from which to people watch, a thousand shops selling clothes and cheese and wines and artworks in which you can spend a Euro or two. In short, Paris is everything you'd ever want from a city - and Parisians' sharp wit makes it all the more memorable.
