Paris, the city of love! With its gorgeous architecture, stunning skyline and amazing food, you will be spoilt for choice for things to do in this vibrant city.
There is something for everything with the city’s wide array of restaurants, exciting tourist attractions, stunning architecture and local French cuisine.
Go visit the Eiffel Tower
It wouldn’t be a trip to Paris with seeing one of its most famous attractions: the Eiffel Tower. Constructed in 1889, it took two years, two months and five days to build, with 7,300 tonnes of iron used and 60 tonnes of paint. The Eiffel Tower boasts breathtaking views of Paris from three different floors, including a variety of restaurants, gift shops and a champagne and macaroon bar. Definitely a must-see!
Try the local cuisine - Chez Trassoudaine
If you’re after some local cuisine in a cosy family environment, then Chez Trassoudaine is just the place for you. Situated just west of Notre Dame, this family-run restaurant was established in 1970 and has a gorgeous aesthetic. The space is designed around the bar, with a large dining room on one side and a glass-roofed winter garden on the other. You can sample their famous potatoes sautéed in goose fat or maybe enjoy some fresh fish delivered daily from the fish market.
Take a balloon ride in Parc André Citroën
If the Eiffel Tower isn’t your thing, then why not experience the gorgeous Parisian views from a hot air balloon ride from Parc André Citroën. The park is in the 15th arrondissement of Paris and was founded in 1992. It is located on the site of a former Citroën factory.
The 10-minute hot air balloon ride rises up to 300m high and fits up to 30 passengers.
Wander around the Louvre
The Louvre is the world’s largest art museum and is home to da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa painting, as well as a whole collection of western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century.
Amble around the aisles soaking up the history and culture that it has to offer or have some lunch in the grounds while taking in the stunning glass architecture of the Louvre Palace.
