It’s the city on everyone’s bucketlist – a holiday in Paris is something you simply have to experience at least once. Book your flight and hotel and prepare for a great time in a city of timeless elegance.
It might be an essential city to visit, but there’s no right way to ‘do’ Paris. You could trek the tourist trail, and tick off the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Élysées. You could head straight out to Disneyland® Paris and see the world of Disney brought to life. Want to eschew the traditional tours? Hide out in the city’s museums and practise being Parisian – though your gasps of delight as you see the magnificent Monets in the Musée de l'Orangerie might give you away as an admiring visitor, no matter how hard you try and blend in.
The Catalan capital is a great place to unwind if you’re shopped yourself into a stupor in Paris – it’s hot, sunny, and best of all, it has its own beach. Whilst many centuries of artists and architects have shaped Paris’s streets – from Haussmannian boulevards to Beaux-Arts buildings – just one artist is synonymous with Barcelona – Gaudi. For your first look at his Sagrada Familia, fly, drive over a couple of days or go to Barcelona by train. Take a direct TGV (high speed train) and you can be in Barcelona in under seven hours.
You can pinpoint the exact centre of Paris. It’s called ‘Kilometre Zero’ and it’s right in front of Notre Dame, the city’s 750-year old gothic cathedral. The city’s 20 ‘arondissments’, or areas, fan out from here in numerical order. Unsurprisingly, some big sights are in the First Arondissment: including the Louvre, which occupies an enormous building behind the Tuileries. This area feels like one of Paris’s grandest addresses, thanks especially to broad boulevards lined with smart, Haussmann-style buildings. Stay at the Little Palace, a boutique hotel on a leafy square on the edge of the 3rd arrondissement.
