Things to do in Paris

Top 6 things to do in Paris The City of Lights needs no introduction. For centuries it’s enthralled visitors and inspired the work of some of the world’s most acclaimed writers and artists, from Victor Hugo to Van Gogh. Iconic monuments, world-class museums, elegant boulevards and impossibly chic inhabitants are all part of its charm. So where to begin in this impeccable city? From its soaring Eiffel Tower to the boldly modern Centre Pompidou and sculpted Arc de Triomphe, we show you the best the city has to offer. And let’s not forget its glorious gastronomy, from delicate pastries to the humble baguette and creamy cheeses accompanied by earthy local wines. Discover it all and let this mesmerising city cast its spell on you. 1. Eiffel Tower Constructed by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World’s Fair, it’s hard to believe this iconic tower was ever intended to be temporary. Saved by its potential use as a radio antenna, it’s become one of Paris’ most enduring symbols. Head to the third floor for city views (that get especially romantic at night). 2. Louvre Museum There’s more to the Louvre than its gleaming glass pyramid and Da Vinci’s mysterious Mona Lisa. Home to more than 10,000 works, its collection runs the gamut from Egyptian antiques to Dutch masters such as Vermeer and Rembrandt. Highlights include the ancient Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo. 3. Arc de Triomphe Begun in 1806 in honour of Napoléon’s recent victory at Austerlitz, it was another 20 years before his monumental arch was finally complete. Highlights include intricate sculptures such as Départ des Volontaires de 1792 (Departure of the Volunteers of 1792). You can also climb the 284 steps for sweeping views. 4. Musee Rodin Get to know this famed sculptor in the 18th-century mansion he used to call home. While many of his works are in the mansion itself, his most famous sculptures can be found in the surrounding rose garden. Exuding tranquillity, the latter is the perfect place to ponder one of his greatest works: The Thinker. 5. Centre Pompidou Former French president George Pompidou wanted a game-changing museum and he certainly got it. Famed for Its radical inside-out architecture, the museum houses cutting-edge exhibitions, performances, cinemas and an enviable permanent collection of French art. Don’t miss the panoramic view from the rooftop. 6. French gastronomy Home to one of the world’s most renowned cuisines, there’s no excuse for not indulging in some fantastic foods, such as a light-as-air macaroon or some creamy camembert. Make your way from artisanal boulangeries to exquisite patisseries, cosy bistros and Michelin-star restaurants; you won’t be disappointed. Planning your Paris visit When to go? Paris will charm you regardless of the season. That said, the months from April to May and September to October are widely considered the best times to visit. You’ll miss the summer crowds while also getting to enjoy the mild yet sunny weather. Spring also lets you see the city in full bloom. Summer is the peak tourist season (June to August), when the weather is at its best and brightest and attractions are at their busiest. Some local establishments may also close during August. Winter is better for those looking to nab a deal as prices for both flights and accommodation tend to drop. Sights are less packed, although you’ll never have them to yourself as Paris attracts tourists all year round. How many days should you spend? Paris is a cosmopolitan city brimming with culture, history, shopping and fantastic nightlife. Three days might just be enough to pack in some of its main sights, but keep in mind you’d be on a tight schedule. Instead, we recommend you get to know the city at a more leisurely pace by spending five days to a week. This way you can see the city’s top attractions while also discovering its more hidden local side. How to get there? Charles de Gaulle is the city’s main airport and is connected to central Paris by train (RER) and bus; prices range from €6 to €18. If you're in a hurry a taxi is the fastest way to get into town (45 minutes) and costs €55-60. Orly Airport is 13km south of Paris. Getting to the city centre is a little less direct unless you take a taxi (€35). If you go by train, you’ll have to change at the Antony station to lines RER B or RER C. It costs around €12 one way. Otherwise, the Orlybus will take you direct for €8.30 one way. Beauvais Airport is a small airport 80 km from Paris, which is mostly used by low-cost airlines. It takes 80 minutes approximately by airport shuttle to Porte Maillot (€17). Trains run to Gare du Nord station every 1 to 2 hours and cost €13-€16. How to move around the city? While the city is by no means small, it’s relatively easy getting around thanks to a speedy and efficient public transport system. The Metro and RER are the fastest modes of transport and operate from around 5.30am to 1.15am (Fridays and Saturdays the Metro stays open an hour later). There’s also a bus system run by RATP, which may be more convenient for families with strollers and those with limited mobility. Prices start from €1.90 for a single bus/train ticket. Paris is also becoming increasingly bike friendly and this is a scenic way to explore the city. While you’ll spot various bike-share systems throughout the city such as Vélib', not all will accept foreign credit cards. Where to shop? With its well-heeled locals and chic boutiques, this is a city that knows a thing or two about style. Get your sartorial dose at any number of shopping districts. The Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is the beating heart of designer fashion, with flagships stores from big name brands such as Versace and Hermes. Otherwise, if you’re looking for something more niche head to Marais, which has everything from artisanal jewellers to trendy concept stores like Merci. Vintage lovers will go wild in Paris’ many flea markets; Saint-Ouen is the city’s largest and is a veritable treasure trove of pre-loved goods. Additionally, you can’t leave Paris without strolling through one of its covered arcades famed for their old-world beauty, such as the Galerie Vivienne.
