One of the largest capital cities in Europe, Paris’ cultural scene is head and shoulders above the rest. Boasting a fascinating history and world-famous for its art, entertainment, fashion and architecture, it’s safe to say that the city is so much more than the Eiffel Tower. But like Big Ben is to London, this towering icon is a must-see, both during the day and at night.
Talking of must-sees, Paris is full of them. Take a boat ride down The Seine, see Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa at the Louvre and fill your history boots with a trip to the Arc de Triomphe… to name just a few. Alternatively, shop ‘til you drop at Champs Elysées, Paris’ most-famed retail avenue or soak up uninterrupted views of the entire city from atop the Notre-Dame, one of the finest examples of French-gothic architecture on the globe.
Sights aside, if food is one of the main attractions that has brought you to the City of Lights, you definitely won’t be disappointed with its offerings. From freshly baked baguettes and a plethora of cheeses to delectable patisseries and colourful markets, food is a big deal to the French so expect a gourmet delight with every mouthful. Whether you’re visiting a Michelin-starred eatery or a family-run neighbourhood bistro, you’re sure to be taken on a culinary journey of gastronomic proportions.
And what about Paris’ hotels? In a word, they’re exquisite. The city’s assortment of five-star properties collectively boast a wealth of top-notch spas, comfortable accommodation options, extensive business facilities, kids’ clubs, babysitting services and – most importantly – delectable restaurants (where some come complete with a trophy cabinet of accolades). And views for days, of course.
So, what are you waiting for? Your Parisian luxury holiday is just a phone call away…
