a cafe in Paris
One of my favorites...Beautiful in every season. At your first visit you'll be charmed with its romance&beauty, yet the next imes it will get more familiar and ordinary. There are a few things I wouldn't forget about this city: Cafes, all the historical monuments & museums, apartments with flowers on the balconies and the metro. While discovering the city I'd suggest you to use the metro since it is an easy way, plus it is the most practical way to experience the real life. All these touristic places are somehow connected to each other and metro will help you a lot to save your time.

                                                             Notre Damme Cathedral


There are so many "must go"touristic places to visit. Such as Louvre Museum, Musee D'Orsay, Centre Pompidou, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, Jardin du Luxemburg. These are the ones that just comes to my mind at first place.

Louvre Museum

Louvre museum is extremely big and one day is never enough to finish. Just plan your visit to Louvre carefully and stick to your plan when you are inside. Otherwise, you will be exhausted at the end of the day and will realise you do not remember anything about the museum..


                                                      Eiffel Tower at Night

Eiffel Tower is way more beautiful at nights. Sitting on the grass with your friends, opening a bottle of a French wine and listening to the street musicians around you. Perfect in spring time!

Centre Pompidou is one of the most exciting ones. If you are interested in modern art, please don't miss your chance to see the newness in modern art world.

Jardin du Luxemburg! It is my favorite option to get relax..Quite & nature. Sounds like a promotion title, but seriously you will really enjoy this garden.

Plus a few suggestions for site seeing and shopping:

Etienne Marcel, Les Halles, Le Marais, Bastille, Saint Martin.

One of the bridges close to Champs Elysees

  • It is always the most diffucult part - The Airport!:
    Two airports: Roissy Charles de Gaulle or Orly Airport.
    A taxi from either of these two airports will cost you around 55 euros, but in heavy traffic the journey can take up to an hour. An alternative from Charles de Gaulle is the RER train service- a 30 minute ride to the centre. If you are in Orly, you should take the Orlyval high-speed shuttle train to the RER station at Antony. From there you can catch a train to the centre.
  • How to discover the city - Some travel info:
    From London, you can take a Eurostar train, which would take you to the central Gare du Nord. From there you will find the metro links to the city centre. Very easy!
    Metro and RER system is so sufficient to explore the city.
    You can get the metro, bus and RER train maps from your hotel or you can also find them on http://www.paris.org/
  • This is what we always wanna know - Info about the opening times:
Monday to Saturday it is generally 10am to 7pm. Very few stores are open on Sunday, plus most of them generally open in the afternoon.
