With our Paris guides to enjoy the best authentic experiences in Paris.A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary,Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture,art,fashion,food and design.
Seeing the city from above:Whether it’s from the top of the Eiffel Tower,in front of Sacré-Coeur,or next to a gargoyle on Notre-Dame,seeing the city from aloft will make your heart sing.There are no skyscrapers in the city center(okay,there’s the Tour Montparnasse,but we try to forget),and you can scan the cityscape and see many of the most famous monuments poking out above the elegant Haussmannian buildings.
Strolling across the Pont Neuf:The view from here is dramatic.To one side,you’ll see the Ile de la Cité,to the other,the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.It’s a little like standing in the navel of the Parisian universe,and in fact,you are:The island that this bridge straddles dates back to the city’s earliest beginnings.
Walking along the Seine at night:Paris is beautiful in the daytime,but at night,when many of the monuments are lit up,it’s positively bewitching.Strolling along the banks of the Seine at night is about as romantic as it gets.A nighttime boat cruise is another great way to enjoy the magic.
