City breaks in
Paris City

The city of lights and lovers

From the romantic setting of the Seine to the iconic sight of the Eiffel Tower dominating the skyline, there’s nothing quite like the magic of a holiday to Paris. Enjoy the designer boutiques in the stylish Champs-Elysees, revel in a relaxed riverboat ride or settle down at a street-side café with a croissant and café au lait. Of course, a holiday to Paris is ideal for soaking up a dose of culture too. With a number of museums and art galleries in every corner of the city, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the history of France’s capital, as well as getting your fill of its extensive classic and contemporary art collections. City breaks to Paris evoke all the glamour of an old Hollywood film but there’s plenty more to discover in the City of Lights.

Your Paris City questions, answered

Parisians typically dine after 8 pm which means you might be hard pressed to find restaurants open before 7 pm.

For full city immersion, explore Paris by foot until your legs get tired. Then hop on the metro for fast, efficient and affordable travel.

Raise a smile by testing out your French: s’il vous plaît - please; merci - thank you; pardon - sorry; bonjour - hello; bonsoir - good evening.
