The City of Light draws millions of visitors every year with its unforgettable ambiance. Of course, the divine cuisine and vast art collections deserve some of the credit as well.
Where to go in Paris
Dance the night away
Whether it’s modern clubs you like or classic jazz joints, you shouldn’t leave Paris without tasting the music that attracted some of the best musicians and artists to the city. There is an especially abundant amount of good jazz clubs in the city.
Celebrate Bastille Day
Every July 14th, a group of spectacular events in Paris celebrates the infamous storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution. There’s a huge, televised parade and an amazing, renowned fireworks display. This is French independence day and one of liveliest days in the country.
Experience the Cinema en Plein Air
Every July and August, Paris rolls out the inflatable screen in the Parc de la Villete for this major outdoor cinema event in the 9th arrondissement. It’s hugely popular with locals who tend to bring food and wine!
Visit Maison du Victor Hugo
This beautiful apartment dates to 1605. Its most famous resident was the writer Victor Hugo, who moved here when he was 30. His old apartment is now a museum dedicated to his life and writing. The museum is quite small, but Hugo (like me) lovers will find it very interesting. Open daily except Mondays from 10am-6pm.
