Paris breaks promise to be full of delicious food, some of the best sightseeing in the world, and so much art and culture that you could visit every year and still not see it all.

Best Selling Paris Hotels:

Flights take just one hour from the UK and Paris holidays can be enjoyed any time of the year - browse the new shopping trends in spring, enjoy the pavement cafes and soak up the sunshine in summer, wander round the museums in autumn and don't miss the Christmas markets in winter.

Things to do in Paris

Paris is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, because of its iconic landmarks, world-famous cuisine, luxurious parks and museums.

The city of Paris lies in a basin surrounded by hills - the highest point is the hill of Montmartre, dominated by the magnificent Sacre Coeur church. Through the centre of Paris, the River Seine runs east to west. The river is a great reference point for finding your way around Paris.

North of the River Seine, is the area known as Rive Droite - “right bank” - where you will be able to visit such landmarks as the Tuileries Gardens, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Champs-Elysees, Paris' most famous avenue.

Rive Droite is also home to Paris’ most buzzing areas: Bastille, loved by the locals for its cafes and bars, Le Marais with its chic boutiques and Les Halles, where hip youngsters and city-dwellers hang out.

Rive Gauche - “left bank” - is home to one of the most famous landmarks of all. A Paris city break would not be complete without climbing up to the top of the Eiffel Tower or a stroll around Saint-Germain des Pres, the city’s cultural hotspot.

When to go to Paris

The chameleon-like nature of Paris is what makes it so attractive to tourists. Couples looking for a romantic break to Paris can take advantage of the many romantic restaurants, gardens and views from the Eiffel Tower.

Holidaymakers seeking to learn more about French culture will enjoy its museums, with the Louvre, Rodin Museum and the advertising museums being the most famous.

Foodies love Paris too - organised gastronomy tours of the city are available and amazing pastries and snacks can be found in the many gourmet shops and patisseries.

For those who love fashion, the Champs-Elysees area is home to the Chanel, Dior and Louis Vuitton stores, and the world famous shops such as Galeries Lafayette, Le Bon Marche and La Samaritaine will also become favourites.

Attractions

The Eiffel Tower and the Louvre are some of the most easily recognisable attractions in the world, and thousands of people visit them everyday. If you've got a head for heights then you can either walk or get the lift up the tower to get the best views of the whole city. Other highlights of the city include the cathedral that was made famous by the Disney film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Also, the Basilique du Sacre Coeur steps boast amazing views across the whole of Paris and the man-made beaches that line the banks of the River Seine in summer also attract thousands of visitors every year.

We love:

Restaurants and Cuisine

Traditional French cuisine has an international reputation for being some of the best in the world. Walking around the streets, you will be spoilt for choice - finding everything from cosy little street cafés, to patisseries that make cakes that look too pretty to eat, and Michelin starred restaurants. Head for the less touristy areas for a cheaper, more traditional meal. Popular lunches include soups with fresh French bread and mussels with chips.

Museums and Galleries

The French are very proud of their history and heritage and you will find a museum or gallery at almost every corner of central Paris. A must-see is the world famous Louvre gallery that houses the Mona Lisa. For something modern visit the Pompidou centre, the exhibition space famous for its inside-out approach. The Musee Rodin houses some of the best sculptures in Paris, or for something a bit different vist the Moulin Rouge - one of the world's most famous caberets.

Shopping

One of the most famous shopping spots in the city is the Champs-Elyseès - dubbed as the equivalent of Bond Street in London, you will find everything from Louis Vuitton and Armani to H&M and Marks and Spencer. For everything under one roof, you must visit Le Bon Marche for department store heaven.

For outlet shopping head for the Rue d'Alesia or for the opposite end of the spectrum the Avenue Montaigne is home to some of the most famour designers.

For antiques and furniture the Place des Vogues on the right bank of the Seine, or the Carre Rive Guache on the left bank are the best places for finding hidden treasures.

Paris is also famous for its many bookshops - if you love food and cooking the the Librairie Gourmande in la Rue Monmatre is a must. For books in English you have a few options - The Red Wheelbarrow Bookstore and Tea & Tattered Pages are very popular.

If you want to take some edible goodies home with you, first check your luggage allowance, and then head for Poilane, where you can pick up one of its famous baked loaves or cakes.
