PLACES TO VISIT in Paris - THINGS TO SEE and do
Paris consistently figures in the top three favourite cities of the world to visit. This will come as no surprise to most people as its iconic monuments are among the most familiar in the world - but there is so much more to the city. Paris is actually what you make it! We have listed what we think are the best places to visit in Paris.
It is ideal for a weekend break if you just want to experience the cities major sites - which are surprisingly easy to get around. It is perfect for a romantic break, ask anyone who has walked along the banks of the Seine on a spring evening and if its history and culture you are after, you will find it here by the barrow load.

The city is officially divided into 20 arrondissements or districts, which have their own unique features but like many modern international cities some of them have lost this due to the desire (and need) to market themselves to their visiting population rather than Parisians themselves.
We suggest if you have time to, try and seek out a little of the real Paris away from the hoards of tourists. That's not to say don't do the obvious things - you can't come to Paris and not!
