Paris was, is and always will be, something rather special. Sightseeing? The list is endless: Notre Dame, L’Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Champs Élysées, Sacre Coeur, Eiffel Tower and much, much more. The shops such as Galeries Lafayette and the smart arcaded rue de Rivoli are legendary. Here you are only a short walk from the Louvre - home of the most well-known painting in the world, the Mona Lisa. The grandiose Place de la Concorde, the largest square in the city, shows off 18th Century French architecture at its best and just over on the left bank you’ll find the Musée d’Orsay, home of the world’s finest Impressionist art collection. The eccentrically modern and yet stylish Pompidou Centre famous for not only its exhibits, but street entertainment of the area too. Visit the islands in the middle of the river Seine, dominated by the cathedral of Notre Dame and the delicate spire of the sublime Ste. Chapelle or take a stroll through the famous Tuileries gardens, specially spectacular during the Spring. But to see everything at once, why not try a trip up the Eiffel Tower?

To get the "feel" of Paris you will visit old Montmartre, for this is the home of the artists and street entertainers. Picturesque squares where the eaves of the houses almost touch and the unmistakable smell of fresh coffee and croissants drifts from the numerous brasseries. The Latin Quarter has an atmosphere all of its own: tiny cobbled streets, crammed with restaurants and bistros. For the gourmet there can be no other country in the world quite like France for its quality of food and drink, and Paris, of course, is the capital of it all. There is so much to see and do, you will leave Paris with sore feet, but once having had a taste, you will always want to come back for more. It is everything you imagine it to be, romantic, inspiring, vibrant even outrageous, but best of all Paris is simply unique.
