What can I expect in Paris?
The city of love, capital of France and home to Disneyland, Paris is a popular city break destination for couples, families and solo travellers alike.
Paris is a great city to explore on foot but it’s large and you simply can’t walk everywhere. The Metro is a great way to travel instead – it’s exhaustively well connected and makes zipping across the city incredibly easy.
It’s important to note that most businesses in the French capital take one day off a week: shops usually close on Sunday, restaurants on Monday, and many of the museums and art galleries on Tuesday. To avoid the disappointment of turning up to a closed attraction or establishment, check opening hours before building your itinerary.

The approximate flight time to Paris is 1 hour 15 minutes.
What is the weather like in Paris?
Paris is often mild and moderately wet. Your best bet is visiting in the summer months where you will (hopefully!) find sunshine and warm temperatures.
Why should I visit Paris?
Paris is the epitome of fashion, art, cuisine and architecture. The French are extremely proud of their culture and relish the chance to share it.
The best way to learn about the culture in Paris is to go ahead and visit the landmarks; the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre are great places to start. You can also partake in a French cooking class and take in the sights from a boat trip on the Seine River.
Get the best views: no trip to Paris is complete without heading to the top of the stunning 324m Eiffel Tower. Stop off along the way to take in the views or have a drink at the top floor Champagne Bar.
Devour the art: from the stunning glass pyramid in the courtyard to the Mona Lisa, a visit to the Musée du Louvre is a day out in itself. Cross the Seine to the Musée D’Orsay, which boasts seminal works from Manet, Monet, Cézanne and Renoir.
Go shopping: in a city renowned for high-fashion, the Champs-Élysées and Avenue Montaigne offer some of the best shopping in the world, along with sights like the Arc de Triomphe and Place de la Concorde. Foramore boutique experience, try Rue de Passy or Rue de Rennes.
Visit the Palace of Versailles: this 17th-century palace sits on the edge of the city in some of the most beautiful gardens you’re likely to see. Famous for its Hall of Mirrors, get there early to avoid the queues.
