Things to do in Paris

Paris — the city of lights, love and lust. An elegant and demanding host, Paris has been captivating artists and admirers of beauty for centuries. Yet taking a stroll along the wide avenues and elegant boulevards will open your eyes to a city with a plan – literally. It’s the Haussmann Plan of the 1800s, which ensured that a city attracting tens of millions of visitors each year had a spacious layout coupled with some much-needed gardens and parks.

With a wealth of iconic attractions, no visitor is ever short of things to do in Paris. See the Mona Lisa in the flesh during a visit to the Louvre Museum before taking a stroll across to the Orsay Museum to round off a heady dose of classical art and culture. See how many steps up the Eiffel Tower you can manage then settle down on one of the viewing levels for unique city panoramas.

Watching your budget? Walk in Napoleon's footsteps and enjoy the enviable neatness of Luxembourg Gardens. Take an afternoon to sample this slice of French family life. And finish off your visit with a performance at the world-renowned Palais Garnier Opera House.
