We enjoyed our walk to the bakery and coffee shop for breakfast. The owner Laurence met us at the apartment, explaining the amenities and helping us get on our way to the sights. We enjoyed using the Batobus to get around the city which was only a short wall away. We would definitely stay here again.

Paris News and Events

Paris, France

Paris Tourism:
Paris is divided up into 20 large administrative districts. Beginning at the centre of the city, they curl round in a clockwise direction like a snail shell. To find out which “arrondissement” you are in, you will find it on all the street signs.

Popular Places in Paris for Sightseeing

Eiffel Tower: In 1889, when the Tour Eiffel was completed, it was the tallest building in the world at 300m. The Tour Eiffel was originally built as a temporary structure to commemorate the centenary of the Revolution. And since, the Eiffel Tower has become an enduring symbol of the city of Paris.

The Tour was originally built for the 1889 Exposition. This steel construction defied all traditional rules in architecture. It is now the television transmitter for the greater Paris region.

There are three floors. The first is at 57 m., the second at 115m., and the third at 276 m. The top of the aerial is 320 m. above the ground. And on a nice day, you an see from the top of the platform, the whole of Paris and even the distant suburbs.

Arc de Triomph: From the Place de la Concorde all the way to the top of the Champs-Elysees, you will discover the Place de l'Etoile which is known today as the Place Charles de Gaulle. And, at this busy Place lies the Arc de Triomphe.

The Louvre: The huge renovation of Le Grand Louvre which started in 1983 leads to an increase of 22 000 square meters. The basement is now occupied by the remains of the medieval castle originally a big keep part of the defensive wall built under Philippe August in 1190 which have been excavated and displayed below the Cour Carrée. Under the glass pyramid leading to the main entrance of the Hall Napoléon starts the shopping gallery leading to several restaurants and cafeterias of the Galerie du Carrousel under the reversed pyramid.

Trips and Tours: Paris is a city with something new to offer around every corner: monuments, architecture, historic avenues, parks and gardens... Treat yourselves to an excursion, travel the length and breadth of the capital by coach, minibus, tourist train or boat, on a bicycle, on skates or even… from the air. Let yourself be tempted by the rich and varied programme of guided tours on offer from the range of Parisian specialists: original tours; tailor-made visits for children; with a professional guide or using a multimedia device; backstage or on a shopping spree. And just outside Paris, anything from historical treasures to theme parks is waiting for you. Not forgetting the zoos and hiking trails, and other assorted trips.

Like all big cities, Paris has its pickpockets. These few words of advice will help you to avoid any inconvenience: always keep your identity documents and your wallet in sealed pockets, or, for ladies, in a handbag carried across your shoulder; try to keep the keys to your accommodation separate from your ID; avoid displaying the contents of your purse, and be particularly vigilant at rush hour when travelling on public transport (9/10am and 6/7.30pm).

A total of 276 monuments, hotels, churches, fountains, bridges and canals light up in Paris every night. Get the best out of this beauty treatment for these magnificent structures with a magical tour of Paris starting with the Eiffel Tower, undisputed queen of the illuminations.

Going out in Paris, facts and figures: 140 theatre and show venues, a hundred or so discotheques, 96 cabarets, 90 cinemas and 3 operas: Paris has something new to offer for each evening out!

Paris, the good taste capital: Paris is renowned worldwide as a capital of gastronomy: a winning combination of talent, expertise and high-quality French produce. To sample the delights of traditional French cuisine, the choice of restaurants and cafés is simply huge, each with its own particular atmosphere and style.Parisian restaurants, ambassadors of good taste, offer up an endless range of flavours: tasty country dishes, Mediterranean specialties, recipes from all over the world, a galaxy of cold meats and cheeses, creative desserts… Restaurants, bars, brasseries, tea rooms, ice cream parlours, open-air cafés or pubs invite gourmets from all over the world to a real culinary feast.
