Vibrant, cosmopolitan and bustling – France's capital city is packed with cafés, bistros and boutiques that change in character from street to street. And then there are the historic buildings and landmarks which, when you book one of our Paris hotels, will be yours to savou
Parisian’s love of art is writ large in museums such as the Louvre, home of Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities and, of course, the Mona Lisa. You can find great works by Cézzane, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh and many others at Musée d'Orsay, a spectacular building that is a former railway station. And at Musée des Arts Forains you'll discover a very unusual collection of privately owned exhibits, including antique carnival rides and games.
Ascend to the summit of the iconic iron lattice Eiffel Tower and find yourself more than 300 metres above street level. From here you'll have unparalleled 360° views of the city. The French Gothic Notre-Dame Cathedral dominates the very centre of Paris on an island that is surrounded by the waters of the River Seine. At the western end of the Champs-Élysées stands the Neoclassical Arc de Triomphe from which avenues radiate like spokes on a wheel. And dominating Montmartre is the ever-white Sacré-Cœur, a beautiful Romano-Byzantine construction whose main dome provides even more splendid views of the city.
Paris is a hive of theatres, opera houses and live music venues. Jump on the Métro and take in a cabaret at the Moulin Rouge or enjoy a stunning production at Opera National de Paris within the splendid Palais Garnier. The French have long had a love affair with cinema, whether watching or creating it. Cinephiles will love the choice of movie houses such as La Cinémathèque Française and Le Champo, where you can watch more than the usual multiplex fare.
Paris is famed for its gastronomy and there is an amazing choice of eateries from the chic rusticity of Seb'on to the high-end sophistication of Epicure. Foodies will be attracted to the markets that line the Rue Mouffetard. Here you'll experience the heady aroma of cheeses and roasting birds, freshly made baguettes and crêpes, as well as chocolates, fruit and vegetables. Paris is a fashion capital of the world, and for haute couture, Avenue Montaigne and Avenue des Champs-Elysées are great places to start.
