Paris has a district designed for every need. Le Marais is thriving with vibrant clubs and bars, while Montparnasse has a Bohemian vibe made famous by the impressionists.

Sightseeing
Arcs, towers, shapely museums – you’ve seen the films, now see the sights for yourself. The Parisian pace is lively, but there are traditional flickers everywhere you go, from tree-lined iconic pavements to riverside walkways. Have your fill of ornate palaces and one incredible railway station in particular – Gare d’Orsay. Resplendent is the word.

With so many supreme restaurants, you’ll taste an explosion of flavours along Rue du Seine and Rue Guisarde in the Latin Quarter.

Getting around
Wide boulevards, pedestrianised throughways and plenty of roadside parks make it easy to wander around. To see the city from the water, jump aboard a Batobus along the Seine and hop on and off at regular river stops. You can buy a single, a day pass or a bunch of ten tickets.
