Paris sprawls out in every direction making it easy for the unwary traveller to be overwhelmed. Walking from place to place isn't always the best option, and if you've only got a couple of nights in the city of light, you won't want to waste a second.
In Paris there are a bunch of must sees that easily classify as 'tourist hotspots’. Often the unprepared traveller finds themselves caught between wanting to see the Eiffel Tower and searching for a more ‘authentic’ Parisian experience.
The solution: do both.
When it comes to first things to see, the Louvre should be top of your list. The Louvre sets the tone for Paris, it will not only engage you while you're there, but provide a frame of reference when visiting other areas of the city. It typically opens around 9am, giving you plenty of time for a morning coffee.
The ultimate way to hit all of Paris’ hotspots in one day is the Big Bus Tour. It runs point to point around the city dropping off and picking up tourists from all the main hot spots. Grab a ticket online and use the pass to see the following:
By evening, Paris comes alive in a different way. The lights, the sounds and smells create an ambience that is truly unique.
An early evening walk up Sacre Coeur provides an expansive view of the city. The Romanesque basilique stands over Montmartre, a neighbourhood of twisting streets and colourful diversity. In Montmartre you can also find the Moulin Rouge, if you’re after a night of dazzling and risque performances.
The Palace of Versailles is an essential part of any trip to Paris. Before heading to Versailles, there are a few things you have to consider:
Because many of France’s museums are closed on Tuesdays, Versailles becomes to place to be for tourists the city over.
Versailles palace is breaktaking. Elegance, opulence, art and imagination combine with a history that, though well known to most, still manages to surprise. The gardens behind the palace are elegant, beautiful and free to wander for the public.
Upon returning from Versailles it’s time to indulge your appetite. Opposite cobblestoned Rue de Nil is the flagship of Chef Gregory Marchand, Frenchie’s Wine Bar. Enjoy share plates matched by the glass (or the bottle) created by sommelier Laura Vidal. All of Vidal’s choices are produced by bespoke organic vineyards, making this truly a place to delight the taste buds.
While days one and two are all about the must sees and must dos, on your third day you get to soak up the Parisian atmosphere and taste what it might be like to be a local in this beautiful city. Here are some tips on how to spend your day.
From creamy and delicious brie to adventurous Roquefort, there’s so much to explore when it comes to the world of French cheese and Androuët is the place to discover it all.
A small menu of delicious breads created by master baker Christophe Vasseur are so exquisite chef Alain Ducasse features some in all of his restaurants. Great for breakfast, just don’t go on weekends, when Du Pain et des Idées is closed.
Another Parisian special, French pastry is a class above and nowhere is this better on display than Patisserie des Rêves. Chef Philippe Conticini makes edible works of art, award winning cakes that are enjoyable to sample as they are to behold.
It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to shopping in Paris, but here are some of the best districts:
Taking a boat ride on the Seine is the perfect way to see the city from another angle. While it’s definitely a little touristy, the pleasant movements of the boat and the endlessly scenic and inspiring monuments and architecture of the city will renew your vigour for travel without being hard on the bones. While a daytime tour provides you with more to see, chances are much of it you’ve glimpsed already. Instead, bask in the romance of the lit up canal.
