Getaway in Paris
Getaway in Paris
Welcome to Paris! The capital is full of not-to-be-missed places and things to do if you are planning your first trip to Paris. This will be a particularly magical trip and you will always want to keep coming back …
To begin the day, the Mona Lisa, by famous artist Leonardo da Vinci awaits you at the Louvre Museum. History and culture buffs will also be attracted by the museum’s many other galleries. After visiting the Louvre, you can stroll through the magnificent Tuileries Gardens to the famous Place de la Concorde with its obelisk. If you continue on towards the Madeleine and Opéra districts, you’ll find plenty of good places to eat at. A suggestion for lunch: try the Café Marly.
In the afternoon, a bus tour with PariscityVision shows you the best of the city, with panoramic views of Paris’s most famous monuments. Take advantage of a stop on boulevard Haussmann to go shopping in the elegant Grands Magasins (major department stores). Now you are very close to Montmartre, so this is a good opportunity to see the Sacré-Coeur Basilica.
Round off this wonderful day at a cabaret! At the Moulin Rouge, in the famous Pigalle district or at the Lido to finish off in style on the Champs-Élysées.
It is time to visit the Eiffel Tower, Trocadéro and the Champ de Mars. This is a mythical district dominated by the Eiffel Tower. Finish off the morning with a well-deserved lunch at the Café du Marché, for example, in rue Cler.
In the afternoon, explore the Île Saint-Louis and Île de la Cité, home to Notre-Dame, Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie. Walk along the Seine quaysides and watch the boats go by or browse through the stalls of the ‘bouquinistes’ (riverside booksellers) on the embankments. Continue on to the Latin Quarter, dominated by the Pantheon. So many exciting discoveries …
And there is more to come … This evening have a dinner cruise on a boat and then go on to a jazz concert at the Petit Journal.
Already the last day? Let yourself be tempted by an out-of-town getaway. Visit the Palace of Versailles and its majestic park and gardens. Treat yourself to a meal at La Petite Venise restaurant before setting off to explore the Trianon and Marie Antoinette’s hamlet.
