Things to do in Paris during your hotel stay

The attractions in Paris are truly spectacular. Who could fail to be impressed with such wonders as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sacre Coeur Basilica, the Louvre Museum, the Palais des Papes, the Pont du Gard Bridge, Mont Saint Michel Island, Chateau de Chambard, the Palace of Versailles and the many D Day sights, including the sombre Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial!

Add in the swanky beaches, harbours, promenades, nightclubs and casinos of the French Riviera (which typically gets over three hundred days of sun each year). The stunning ski resorts in the Alps particularly Chamonix with its Mont Blanc Mountain backdrop. Not forgetting the awe-inspiring national parks in Provence, the stately castles in the Loire Valley and of course the ‘romantic ambience’ of Paris, and you get just a tiny sample of what this very proud country has to offer the lucky visitor!

Paris for kids

And in case you think the kids might still be a little underwhelmed with all this extravagance, you can always bring them to Disneyland Paris to see Mickey Mouse, Minnie, the Disney Princess and friends. Then let them experience all the thrills and spills of the park’s Indiana Jones, Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, It’s a Small World, Tower of Terror, Buzz Lightyear, Ratatouille The Adventure, Star Wars and Phantom Manor rides!

Paris for foodies

France is gourmet heaven, with more world class chefs and restaurants than any food lover could dream of. Beef bourguignon, coq au vin, ratatouille, bouillabaisse (fish stew), cassoulet (bean and meat casserole), fois gras, crepes, croissants, crème brulee, quiche, baguettes, escargots (snails), frogs legs, gratin duphinois and not forgetting the humble garlic bulb, are all French specialities of the house.

Paris for the wine connoisseur

The true home of the grape, France excels in producing some of the finest wines in the world, so much so that many visitors holiday itineraries are based solely around sampling as much of this fine elixir as possible. Tasting trips to vineyards in the more popular French wine growing regions of Rhone, Burgundy, Alsace, Bordeaux, Beaujolais and not forgetting Champaign, are becoming increasingly popular.

Paris for shopping

And if fashionable shopping establishments are your thing, France will spoil you rotten. The country is the birthplace of Haut Couture and is home many of the world’s most popular fashion brands, including Yves Saint Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Givency and Dior!

Paris for sport

The sporting enthusiast will also find much to be pleased about when visiting France, from the World famous Tour de France bicycle race to a passionate soccer or rugby international in the impressive Stade de France. And if that’s not enough, there’s the French Open Tennis, Le Mans Car Race and Monaco Grand Prix (just across the French border in the French Rivera) to cheer along to.

Getting around Paris

Another great feature of France is the ease at which visitors can travel between and within cities. France has almost thirty thousand kilometres of railway infrastructure, as well as the infamous TGV train, which can travel at a speed of over three hundred kilometres per hour. Add in the many city underground rail networks (including the Paris, Lyon, Lille, Marseilles, Toulouse and Rennes metros), trams, and cable cars, and motorways.

You can see why visitors return again and again to seek out the attractions still not ticked off their must see French holiday list. We compare cheap hotel deals in Paris, French Riviera, Nice, Lyon, Chamonix and Cannes to name just a few of the top tourist destinations in France.

Paris hotel travel guide – tourist attractions

The most romantic city in the world, Paris will enthral with its sophistication and unique attractions. In fact one of the wonderful things about visiting Paris is the vast array of sights that do not charge an entrance fee. These include; The Sacre Coeur Basilica, Notre Dame Cathedral, The Musee Carnavalet and of course the many stunning formal and very colourful public parks, including Parc Monceau, Jardin des Tuileries and Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. See the main tourist attractions in Paris below.

For a more unusual and slightly morbid day out, a visit to either Mountparnasse Cemetery or Pere Lachaise Cemetery is to be recommended, where you can pay homage to the graves of The Doors’ Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, John Paul Sartre and Simon de Beauvoir. And if your legs haven’t given up the ghost, a nice long walk along the tree-lined Champs Elysees street, with its cafes, shops and cinemas, or to Paris’ Latin Quarter on The Left Bank, with its trendy shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, will be most rewarding.
