Paris is the second-most visited city of Europe, and that’s definitely for a reason. World famous landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, are rewarded with prominent places in many holiday photo albums.
Visit Centre Pompidou, admire Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa in Musée du Louvre, climb the Eiffel Tower, or gasp at the Sacre Coeur or the Notre Dame de Paris. And that’s just the tip of the French iceberg. So if you want to see it all, make sure to spend at least several days in Lovely Paris.
The many typical French streets and squares (or places) and the unique, often artistic, atmosphere make Paris a one-of-a-kind city. Wander through the Montmartre district or stroll along the shores of the Seine and experience it yourself.
Apart from the many sights and landmarks, Paris is also often referred to as the City of Love. You can see enamoured couples walk around anywhere, and not just around Valentine’s Day, but basically anytime – during Spring, Summer, Fall and around Christmas.
But Paris is not just for couples, it’s also the perfect destination for families. The city itself has a lot to offer, with several child-friendly things to do, including Cité des Enfants or Parc de la Villette. And if you want to fully entertain your children, Disneyland Paris at just a short distance away.
