Trip to Paris

5 reasons for a city break in Paris seems like a misnomer! There are so much more than 5. With the Eiffel Tower, sophisticated architecture and what could be the best pastries in the world, the French capital is worth visiting time and time again, whatever the time of year. Here are 5 good reasons why you should go on a city break to Paris.

1. Feast on éclairs & co.

Stroll through the peaceful streets of the Le Marais district during the early hours and let yourself be seduced by the sweet scents coming from the patisseries and cafés. Without a doubt, the best éclairs, macarons and crêpes in the world can be found in Paris – and they make a trip to the city on the Seine worth it for these alone.

2. Marvel at Old Masters and street art

You’ll find art on every street corner in Paris, whether it’s from the painters offering their works – ranging from original portraits to impressionist landscapes – at the Place du Tertre in the popular Montmartre district, or in the wide range of world-famous museums, such as the Louvre. If you love art and culture, you’ll fall in love with Paris.

3. Relax or take a stroll in the park

Paris is much greener than many would expect. The French capital is home to more than 400 parks and gardens, so take a trip to the Jardin du Luxembourg or the Jardin des Tuileries, and the Parisians will follow suit. Saunter round the park or grab one of the seats to soak up the sun.

4. Experience Paris at night

An extravagant evening at the cabaret is a must for many of Paris’s visitors. The fascinating shows can be experienced in the legendary Moulin Rouge, Lido or Crazy Horse. If you’re looking for a more relaxed evening, head to one of the city’s many bars. Take advantage of happy hours to save some money. Many bars offer half-price drinks between 6 and 7 pm and 9 and 10 pm.

5. See the crème de la crème of sights

The Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, Sacré-Cœur… Paris awaits with a never-ending list of sightseeing highlights. Entry to some can be a bit pricey, but luckily most attractions offer a magnificent view from outside. EU citizens under the age of 26 can visit the Dôme des Invalides, the Louvre and many other attractions free of charge.
