The essentials

Not to be missed

The city has a host of places for beautiful strolls along the riverbanks or through its picturesque quarters. You can wander the streets, take a riverboat ride or walk through the parks.

Montmartre, Saint-Germain des Prés, Le Marais or Ile Saint Louis are among the most outstanding areas of Paris.

 

Museums

Paris boasts some of the world’s most prestigious museums such as the Louvre, the Orsay Museum, the Georges Pompidou Centre or the Rodin Museum. There are also slightly less famous establishments that nonetheless are worth the trip, such as the Jacquemart André Museum or the Tokyo Palace.

 

Monuments

Open between 09:00 and 18:00, some monuments are closed on Monday or Tuesday.

The Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde, the Grand Palais, Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Sacré-Cœur Basilica are the most visited sites.

 

Parks and gardens

The city of Paris boasts numerous parks and gardens open all year round between 09:00 and 17:00 in the winter and until 20:00 in the summer.

The Tuileries Garden, the Buttes-Chaumont Park, the Luxembourg Garden and Monceau Park are particularly charming spots.

 

Off the beaten track

It is also possible to take advantage of your stay to take a trip outside the capital itself. Within a few kilometres of the city, you can, for example, go to Auvers-sur-Oise in the footsteps of Van Gogh and the Impressionists or visit the Castle of Chantilly in the department of  Oise.


Gastronomy

Restaurants, brasseries and cafés

The city of Paris has a host of places to eat out, from the starred restaurants to the famous simpler “brasseries”, where you can relax with a glass of wine or try an excellent “croque-monsieur”. The prices vary between establishments, but are slightly more expensive in tourist areas.

After a hectic day, it is customary to meet up on a sunny terrace outside one of the city’s many small cafés.

 

The pleasure of bread

If there is something to which Parisians are attached, it is without doubt their famous “baguette”. Indeed, it is a Parisian habit to buy it every day from one of the city's many bakeries. There are also a host of types of fresh and artisanal breads - a real treat.

 

Markets

The French capital has many weekly local markets of very good quality, where you can find exceptional products. It is best to get there early in the morning, and most close at 13:00. Among the Parisians’ favourites is the Place d’Aligre market (12th arrondissement) - an unforgettable stop.

 

The Parisian “jambon-beurre”

Formerly called “le parisien”, this sandwich is practically a symbol of the city. An archetype of simple, traditional cuisine, it remains a Parisian lunchtime favourite, especially when the quality of baguette is a given. You can try it at nearly any bakery.


Culture

A city of cultures

In addition to the museums and exhibitions, various live shows also have a starring role in Paris. The city hosts a wide array of theatres such as the Comédie Française, opera houses (Garnier and Bastille) and concert halls.

 

Paris, cinema crazy

Paris is the city with most cinemas per square metre in the world. Little local cinemas, arty and pioneering cinemas or more modern establishments make for a really comprehensive range.

 

Paris, capital of fashion

With a multitude of haute couture firms and the most prestigious shows, Paris remains the capital of fashion and elegance. For fashion lovers, there are fantastic shopping opportunities since all French and international brands are represented near the main tourist spots.

 

Paris at night

The French capital’s nightlife is an enduring attraction. With their different styles, the districts of Pigalle or the Champs-Elysées attract fans of clubs and bars.


Climate

The four seasons of Paris

In Paris, every season has its charm.

The city has an oceanic-continental climate with warm, dry summers, and mild, wet winters.

 

And what about the rain?

In Paris, rainfall is distributed fairly evenly throughout the year, with short showers the norm, so you need have no hesitation in visiting the city at any time of year.
