Picnic under the Eiffel tower, discover the abundant treasures of the Louvre or simply sit in a typical Montmartre caf and watch the world go by. In this dreamy city which has inspired artists over the centuries, all that is romantic, prevails. When the sun goes down, this city really comes to life.

Another must visit attraction is the Louvre, if only for the stunning piece of architecture that is the Louvre Pyramid. However, the Louvre does have much more to offer, including the most famous masterpieces from Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa to Veronese’s Wedding feast at Cana.

For a great cafe experience try going to the artists quarter where even now you are more likely to overhear a conversation on the views and opinions of Jean Paul Sartre, the famous philosopher, or the French impressionists than a discussion on the sport or other such, to the French, mundane subjects.

And of course there are the theme parks like Disneyland Paris and Parc Asterix, which we have all heard about, but what about the Mer de Sable, which has a wild west theme where you can see shows, yet if you prefer wildlife rather than wild rides, you can watch eagles in flight along with tree top walks at the Espace Rambouillet.

On a Sunday morning, there is no better pleasure than a meander down the Rue du Mouffetard in the 5th arrondissement to the home of Paris’ most famous pedestrianised street and street market.
