Insiders Guide To What To See & What To Do In Paris

Paris is such a great European city — and a great world city — that we spend a lot of time there! There is so much to see, so many great monuments and sites to visit, and so much to do that we've created an entire website about the best things to do when you're in Paris.

Just namedrop a few monuments and activities and you'll see what we mean — Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, the gardens and chateaux of Versailles, cruising along the Seine River, a day trip out to Monet's gardens or to the D-Day beaches. We could go on, and we do, at our Paris travel planning website, Paris Insiders Guide!

Plan Your Paris Activities

There are some things you simply must do when you're in Paris.

A Seine River cruise comes to mind, especially at night when the historical buildings are illuminated. And, of course, a wine tasting in an ancient cellar near the Louvre.

To see a lot of the city and get you orientated, we also recommend guided tours of the City of Light by car, on a bike, or on those crazy Segways. You'll want to take part in Paris nightlife, and we've got the skinny on the Moulin Rouge, restaurants, dinner on the Eiffel Tower, and lots more.

One of our favourite things to do in Paris is…leave Paris — on a day trip to the Champagne region, or to the D-Day beaches of Normandy, or out to Versailles.

You'll find all this and tons more ideas & Insiders tips at Paris Insiders Guide.
