Paris is beautiful, there’s no arguing with that. But don’t be fooled into thinking it’s just a living museum, it is so much more than that. Paris is an exciting, vibrant city with so much going on you’ll need to go back several times just to scratch the surface.
The best way to get a feel for Paris is to walk around, and it is a very walkable city. So, ditch the guidebook and discover something different, it’s the perfect place for an idle wander. Browse quirky shop windows, stop for lunch and some people-watching, then take in a gallery to work up an appetite for dinner.
