Exploring Paris in just one weekend is ambitious, but seeing all the main sights is a must. Head out of your hotel room and straight for the top of the iconic Eiffel Tower to check out panoramic views of the French capital. Then visits to the Louvre, Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe and Montmartre will immerse you in both the heritage of Paris’ past, and its vibrant present. Between sightseeing trips, wander along the quays of the Seine to enjoy the river. Not just the river, either — there are also some gorgeous monuments to admire on both the left and right banks.
A week’s stay is ideal for anyone who really wants the full Paris experience. With your affordable hotel as a base, let yourself be carried away on the city’s fizzing energy. There are so many hidden treasures there, from Sacré-Cœur to the Paris catacombs. Not to mention the famous museums: the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Musée du quai Branly, Pompidou Center and more. Next, stroll along the banks of the Seine, the Canal Saint-Martin, or through the many gardens. In the evenings, head to shows at the Moulin Rouge, the Opéra Garnier or the Comédie-Française, before finally giving in to the temptation of some gourmet down-time.
The French capital is overflowing with spots that are perfect for family adventures. The Parc de la Villette has something for everyone: kids and parents alike will love the sport, art, and jam-packed calendar of cultural activities on offer. The Cité des Science is also close to our hotels, with a kids’ area that will fascinate children of all ages. Right in the heart of Paris, the Musée en Herbe, Grévin Museum, Museum of Natural History, the Bateaux-Mouches boats and gardens are fun excursions for all the family. At the end of the day, a well-deserved rest in your room awaits.
