Paris

Paris, the City of Light, is filled with thousands of hotels, attractions, shops, and restaurants. If this is a first-time visit, or even if you know the city, this guide aims to help to focus on where to stay, where to eat, where to go and more basic information you need before you go to Paris. Long considered the paragon of style, Paris is perhaps the most glamorous city in Europe. It is at once deeply traditional – a village-like metropolis whose inhabitants continue to be notorious for their hauteur – and famously cosmopolitan.

The city’s reputation as a magnet for writers, artists and dissidents lives on, and it remains at the forefront of Western intellectual, artistic and literary life. The most tangible and immediate pleasures of Paris are found in its street life and along the banks and bridges of the River Seine. Cafés, bars and restaurants line every street and boulevard, and the city’s compactness makes it possible to experience the individual feel of the different quartiers.

Language

Paris is in France where the majority of people speak mostly French. However, since it is an international tourist center, you will find many people speak English as well in the parts of the city that see the most tourists, people will understand and talk to you in English. Regional languages are also spoken like dialects of German and Celtic languages. The Parisian French is much different than the French spoken in other parts of the world. They also have a different dialect & expressions from other regions in France.

Currency
Paris uses the Euro (€): The French currency. The U.S. dollars are not accepted in most establishments, though some hotels, shops, and restaurants may accept U.S. dollars at an agreed upon exchange rate.

  • Tipping in France Almost all restaurants include tax and a 15% service charge (service compris) in their prices. If a meal or service has been particularly good, leaving another 2-3% is customary, as is leaving the waiter the small change from your bill if you pay in cash. It is standard practice to tip tour guides and bus drivers after an excursion, generally 1.50-3.00€, depending on your level of the satisfaction.

  • Currency exchange Currency exchange can be made in most banks and post offices as well as in some large stores, train stations, airports and exchange offices near major tourist sites. Look for a sign indicating "Change". Remember that even though exchange rates are fixed, agent commissions vary: they must be clearly displayed. Exchange rates vary from bank to bank in the U.S. and France. Large cities in the U.S. generally have banks specialized in foreign exchange with lower exchange

  • ATMs: (known locally as distributeurs automatiques de billets) often have the best exchange rates. Think of withdrawing directly from your savings, not from your credit card, which treats the transaction as a cash advance. If you do plan to obtain cash on your credit cards using an ATM, contact the credit card company for instructions and to let them know your intentions (and that you'll be withdrawing money abroad). Virtually all ATMs in France take MasterCard and Visa, and most are linked to the Cirrus and Plus systems. American Express has ATMs in major cities. Note: Most French ATM keyboards have numbers only, so if your PIN contains letters, remember the number equivalents. Four- and five-digit PINs are acceptable in France.

  • Credit Cards: Credit cards are accepted in a large number of shops, hotels, and restaurants. Shopkeepers often state a minimum charge. If you lose your credit card, contact your credit card emergency hot-line
Climate

A melody of colors and atmospheres, a symphony of contrasting skies and light. Every season pays tribute to Paris and highlights its charms, be it the sun caressing its pale facades, or the rain reflecting the night’s gleam. To the sweet music of romance or a festive beat, compose your own score for your trip to the city, depending on the time of year and the whims of the weather.


  • Spring (21 March-21 June): This is the season where Paris seems to reawaken, with its avenues fringed with new green shoots and its trees in flower. The days are getting longer, as are the opening times of museums, and the high season is just around the corner. There’s a holiday feeling in the air and the sweet smell of candy floss pervades the pathways of the Foire du Trône funfair. People venture out and about in the parks and gardens and along the river banks, strolling, cycling or skating.

  • Summer (21 June-21 September): When the summer season is at its height, rest and relaxation and 'joie de vivre' bask in the sun, on the café terraces, in the parks and on the 'beaches' by the Seine. Picnics abound and gourmets melt for the best ice cream in Paris.

  • Autumn (21 September-21 December): When you see the avenues and parks take on their autumn reflections, and the soft light of the street lamps sets aglow the carpet of fallen leaves, it’s an inspiring sight. The days may be getting shorter, but the colors are blooming. This is not only the time to return to school, but also a renewal of culture. Autumn has its own festival and the major trade fairs draw the crowds. Towards the end of November, Paris already sparkles with Christmas decorations.

  • Winter (21 December-21 march): Snow occasionally covers the rooftops of Paris with its mantle, reminiscent of the Impressionist paintings by Caillebotte. Christmas dresses up the main avenues with its sparkle, markets and appealing window displays spring up around the city. It is a pleasure to dive into the cozy warmth of its restaurants and cafés. Take a tasty break for hot chocolate between two museums or after a few pirouettes on the open-air ice rinks. From January to March, this is the charm of off-season Paris.

Getting Around Paris

  • Metro – The Paris public transport system is one of the world’s most comprehensive and efficient. Every other block has a metro (subway) stop. You can get a one day to five-day pass (a ParisVisite) for all modes of public transportation (bus, metro, trams, and suburban trains called the RER). It also gives you discounts to some major Parisian landmarks. You can buy tickets at any metro station.

  • RER Train – The RER is an above-ground train that has five lines serving Paris and Il-de-France. It works exactly like the metro, and uses the same tickets, although you’ll have to use your ticket in the automatic barriers on your way out of the station as well (unlike the metro). If you have a connecting journey with the metro, you can use the same ticket.

  • Bus – There are 64 bus lines in Paris’s metro network. Your ParisVisite pass also works on the bus.

  • Tram – There are four tram lines in Paris that navigate the city’s perimeter. They work on the same ticketing system as the metro, RER, and bus.

  • Bike-sharing – Velib’ is Paris’s public bike sharing program. As a user, you’ll pay a flat fee for as many trips per day or per week as you like, and if you end up biking for less than 30 minutes during a trip, you won’t be charged above the subscription fee.

  • Taxi – Taxis in the city are expensive regardless of where you are going and, with the metro running late into the night, there’s little reason to take them. Avoid them if you can.

  • Uber – Uber is available in Paris.



Accommodation

There is a massive choice of four and three-star hotels in Paris, so choosing your hotel is really first a matter of determining which district or quarter of Paris you want to stay in, then selecting the place that best meets your requirements; you can choose from hundreds of independent establishments, or from the three or four star hotels run by the major chains via our website.

    Eiffel Tower
  • Eiffel Tower: The most visited tourist attraction in Paris, the Eiffel Tower also ranks high on the list of places to visit in France. It's hard to believe that the structure was dismissed as a monstrosity when it was first unveiled. The iconic tower was designed by Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel for the Paris Exhibition of 1889, which marked the centenary of the French Revolution.The tower consists of 18,000 sturdy iron sections (weighing over 10,000 tons) held together by 2.5 million rivets. This innovative structure is now considered a masterful architectural feat and is the most emblematic sight in Paris. From the Jardins du Trocadéro and the lawns of the Champs de Mars, there is just the right distance from the Eiffel Tower for a picture-perfect photo-op. Reaching 324 meters in height, the tower was the world's tallest building until the Empire State Building was erected.

  • Musée du Louvre: A sumptuous palace that was once the home of France's Kings, the Louvre is the most important of Paris' top museums. Visitors enter the museum in the courtyard of the palace at the glass pyramid (designed by Ieoh Ming Pei in 1917). The Louvre Museum possesses more than 30,000 artworks (many considered masterpieces)—from antiquities to European paintings of the 15th to 19th centuries.It is impossible to see it all in one visit, but tourists can focus on a particular gallery, such as classical sculpture, Italian Renaissance art, or 17th-century French paintings, or take a self-guided tour to see the Louvre Museum's highlights.The most famous piece is the Mona Lisa or La Gioconda (or La Joconde in French) painted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1503-1505. Other exceptional works are the ancient Venus de Milo sculpture, the monumental Victory of Samothrace of the Hellenistic period, the immense Wedding Feast at Cana painting by Veronese (1563), and Botticelli's frescoes. The Louvre is surrounded on one side by the Jardin des Tuileries, one of the largest and loveliest parks in Paris.

  • Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris: A triumph of Gothic architecture, the Notre-Dame stands in the heart of Paris on the Ile de la Cité near the attractions of the Latin Quarter. An island in the Seine River, the Ile de la Cité is the historical and geographical center of Paris. On this small plot of land, the Romans built the Gallo-Roman city of Lutetia, and from the 6th century to the 14th century, the Kings of France resided here.The Notre-Dame Cathedral was founded in 1163 by King Louis IX (Saint Louis) and Bishop Maurice de Sully, and the construction took more than 150 years. The cathedral was first created in Early Gothic style, while later additions (the west front and the nave) show the transition to High Gothic style. Note: In April of 2019, a fire caused considerable damage to the cathedral. The interior is closed to the public. The structure will be undergoing repairs in the years ahead.

  • Avenue des Champs-Élysées
  • Avenue des Champs-Élysées: The most monumental boulevard in Paris used to be a desolate field of marshland until the 17th century, when it was landscaped by André Le Nôtre. A century later, the renowned Parisian city planner Baron Haussman designed the boulevard's elegant buildings. The Champs-Elysées is divided into two parts with the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées as its intersection.The lower part of the Champs-Elysées, bordering the Place du Concorde, includes a spacious park, the Jardin des Champs-Élysées, and the Petit Palais fine arts museum. The upper part, extending to the Arc de Triomphe, is lined by luxury shops, hotels, restaurants, cafés, cinemas, and theaters. This bustling area draws many tourists and is a gathering place for Parisians.The Champs-Elysées is famous for its prestigious establishments, such as Maison Ladurée (75 Avenue des Champs-Elysées), a pâtisserie shop renowned for its 18th-century tea salon and delicious pastries (their specialty is "macarons"), and upscale designer boutiques like Tiffany & Co. (62 Avenue des Champs-Élysées), Louis-Vuitton (101 Avenue des Champs-Elysées), and Cartier (154 Avenue des Champs-Élysées).

  • Musée d'Orsay: This splendid collection of Impressionist art is beautifully presented in an expansive space (formerly the Belle Epoque-era Gare d'Orsay railway station). The collection represents the work of all the masters of Impressionism. The artists range from classic Impressionist masters Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, and Pierre-August Renoir to Post-Impressionist artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cézanne, and Vincent van Gogh; the Pointillists (Georges Seurat, Paul Signac); and Bohemian artists like Toulouse Lautrec.Some of the museum's most famous pieces include Claude Monet's The Magpie, Gare Saint-Lazare, Poppy Field, and Luncheon on the Grass; Vincent van Gogh's self-portrait and Starry Night; and Renoir's Dance at Moulin de la Galette, which depicts a festive party scene in Montmartre.The Orsay Museum is among the best places to visit in Paris to get an overview of Impressionist art history.

  • Palais Garnier, Opéra National de Paris: Commissioned by Napoleon III in 1860, the Palais Garnier Opera House was designed by Charles Garnier in an exuberant Baroque style. Garnier worked tirelessly on the project for over a decade, from 1862 to 1875. Today, the opulent monument is a symbol of Napoleon's Imperial regime.The facade features classical columns and eight sculptures representing allegorical figures: Poetry, Music, Idyll, Recitation, Song, Drama, and Dance. The loggia depicts busts of composers, including Rossini, Beethoven, and Mozart, while the cupola is topped with a statue of Apollo with allegorical figures of Poetry and Music. Upon entering the building, visitors are dazzled by the lavish 11,000-square-meter interior. Most of the building's space is dedicated to the grand foyer with its fabulous Grand Escalier, marble entrance staircase, adorned by ornate gilded lamps.For a deeper understanding of the Paris Opera House and its rich cultural heritage, tourists should visit the Bibliotèchque-Musée de l'Opera (Library-Museum of the Opera House) located inside the building.

  • Place de la Concorde
  • Place de la Concorde: Created between 1755 and 1775 by the architect of King Louis XV, this impressive octagonal square is at the heart of 18th-century Paris. With its majestic dimensions, the Place de la Concorde is one of the most attractive squares in the city. It was the scene of several key historical events, including the execution of King Louis XVI, and it was part of Napoleon's triumphal route.The square offers sensational views of the triumphal route towards the Arc de Triomphe and the Défense, and towards the Louvre, as well as to the Madeleine and the Palais-Bourbon. At the center is an Egyptian obelisk, which was presented to Charles X by the Viceroy of Egypt. During summer, there is a Ferris wheel here.

  • Arc de Triomphe: The Arc de Triomphe is dedicated to the soldiers who fought in the French armies of the Revolution and the First Empire (Napoleonic Wars). Napoleon commissioned the building of this mighty structure in 1806 but did not live to see its completion in 1836. Designed by JF Chalgrin, the massive 50-meter-high arch features bas-reliefs with larger-than-life-size figures, which depict the departure, victories, and glorious return of the French armies.Particularly noteworthy is the bas-relief by François Rude on the Champs-Elysées-facing side: Departure of the Volunteers of 1792, also known as The Marseillaise, illustrating the troops led by the winged spirit of Liberty. On the inner surface of the arch are the names of more than 660 generals and more than a hundred battles.From the top of the monument, a viewing platform affords panoramic views of the 12 avenues that radiate from the Place de l'Etoile, including the route from the Champs-Elysées to Place de la Concorde and the Louvre. It's possible to see all the way to La Défense, Montmartre, and the Eiffel Tower.At the foot of the Arc de Triomphe is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, dedicated in 1921 as a memorial to an anonymous soldier (symbol of the many other unknown soldiers who valiantly died for their country during World War One without ever receiving recognition). The Flame of Remembrance was ignited on November 11th, 1923 and since that date has not ever been extinguished. Every evening at 6:30pm, a ritual takes place to rekindle the memorial flame at the tomb.

  • People riding on boat
  • River Cruises: To truly soak up the alluring ambience of Paris, tourists should try taking a boat cruise along the Seine River. Besides being one of the most enjoyable things to do while visiting the city, Seine River Cruises allow tourists to see the sights from a different perspective. The Seine River bridges, Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Louvre Museum look stunning from the viewpoint of a riverboat.While a daytime cruise allows tourists to appreciate the glory of the monuments brightened by sunshine, the most romantic experience is an evening cruise. After sunset, the city's landmarks are illuminated, which creates a special effect, and somehow the city seems more magical. For a cruise that includes dinner, try the Bateaux Parisiens Seine River Cruise. This four-hour sightseeing journey departs near the Eiffel Tour, and guests are treated to a gourmet three-course meal.

  • Musical Concerts at Sainte-Chapelle: Sainte-Chapelle is rarely used for mass but often serves as a venue for music concerts. Listening to a choir or classical music performance in this space is an inspiring spiritual experience. Sainte-Chapelle is considered a rare jewel among medieval houses of worship and is certainly one of the most exquisite churches in Paris. This masterpiece of Rayonnant Gothic architecture was built from 1242 to 1248 for King Louis IX (Saint Louis) to house the precious relics he had acquired from the Byzantine Emperor. The altar displays a relic of the Crown of Thorns. The chapel is renowned for its breathtaking stained-glass windows, which give the sanctuary an iridescent glow and serene aura. (It's recommended to visit in the morning and especially on sunny days to appreciate the windows at their most brilliant.) The chapel has 15 stained-glass windows (covering 600 square meters) depicting over 1,000 scenes from the bible, both Old Testament and New Testament stories. The colors and light symbolize divinity and the Heavenly Jerusalem.

Food and Drink
Baguettes

The reputation of French cuisine proceeds itself, making visions of delectable macarons and creamy brie dance in our heads. From exotic delicacies to traditional crowd-pleasers, there is no shortage of good eats in Paris. Nibble on a crêpe after strolling through the city’s romantic streets or try garlic-soaked escargot if you’re feeling adventurous. In Paris, food and drink are more than simply sustenance, but a way to bring people together through the art of culinary indulgence.


  • Baguettes: Emblematic of French cuisine, Parisian baguettes are an everyday staple. Their enticing smell wafts from endless bakeries whose dedicated artisans wake early each morning to handcraft the dough. In fact, the French are so serious about their baguettes that a 1933 ‘bread decree’ declared that only flour, water, salt and yeast can be ingredients.

  • Escargot: Though the idea of gnawing on a snail might sound a bit off-putting, there’s no better place to abandon your culinary comfort zone than Paris. Whether an appetizer or an entrée, escargot is typically cooked with rich parsley butter and garlic – so dig into the shell and expand your palate.

  • Ratatouille: More than the title of an animated Disney movie, Ratatouille originated in Nice, France but is a restaurant favourite in Paris. The vegetable dish combines eggplants, onions, peppers, tomatoes and zucchini in a garlic seasoning that’s stewed to perfection.

  • Steak Frites: This classic dish features cuts of steak and strips of fried potatoes, aka ‘French fries’, drenched in various specialty sauces, most likely Béarnaise. An essential meal on any Parisian menu, steak frites are cooked to your liking, paired with wine and bound to satisfy that salty craving.

  • Boeuf Bourguignon: Described by Julia Child as “certainly one of the most delicious beef dishes concocted by man”, boeuf bourguignon originated in the Burgundy region of France. Braised in a full-bodied red wine alongside onions, carrots and garlic, the beef is tenderized and simmered until it’s mouth-wateringly perfect.

  • Le Foie Gras: French for “fat liver”, foie gras is a French delicacy made from the liver of a fattened duck or goose. Its rich, buttery taste is prized by Parisian chefs who serve it as a full dish or fashion it into mousse and pâté. Known for its melt-in-your-mouth sensation, foie gras is not something to be overlooked.

  • Macarons
  • Macarons: These sweet meringue pastries are the crown jewels of French desserts, sporting flavors from the traditional chocolate and raspberry to the outlandish matcha and lavender. The wildly popular confection is filled with a smooth ganache or cream and truly is a pillowy indulgence like no other.

  • Crêpes: French for “pancakes”, crêpes have become a worldwide obsession with street food and artisan adaptations galore. But Paris is the place to sample these buttery layers filled with anything from Nutella to orange whipped cream to egg and sausage. Pastry chefs are not afraid to experiment with unexpected fillings, so be sure to try even the wackiest of flavours.

  • Café au Lait: Simply coffee with milk, the French created this classic drink after being introduced to the black brew by nearby Turkish peoples. Popular around the world and still enjoyed in Paris today, café au lait is equal parts coffee and scalded milk. You’ll surely start off your morning on the right foot with this beverage.

  • Soixante Quinze (French 75): Gin, champagne, sugar and lemon juice make up this signature Parisian cocktail. Named after the 75-millimetre WWI weapon, the drink is said to “knock you flat” with its precision and potency. Returning to its 1915 origins, the 75 is often served in a Collins glass that resembles a cartridge shell.

Things to Do

Where do you even start in this dizzying metropolis? Find out with our pick of the absolute best things to do in Paris. Even the locals would agree it’s impossible to see every sight, every piece of history, every glorious work of art in the City of Light in just one lifetime. But don’t feel downbeat about it all. Our top 10 best things to do in Paris should help you get a sense of this storied yet ever-changing city as it is right now – and have an excellent time while you’re at it.

  • Explore the Palais-Royal Gardens: Far from the noise and bustle, these serene formal gardens and elegant boutiques tucked behind the walls of a 17th-century palace are a tranquil haven and one of Paris’s best-kept secrets. Once a royal residence (Louis XIV spent part of his unhappy childhood here), the hushed arcades, fountain and manicured gardens of the Palais-Royal are now home to world-class perfumers, antiquaires and designer boutiques—including Rick Owens, Stella McCartney, and Pierre Hardy—and two of France’s legendary glove-makers (Maison Fabre and Lavabre Cadet). Enjoy lunch or teatime outdoors or splurge like Zola, Proust, and Colette did at the exquisite Grand Véfour restaurant, a historic monument, or right in the garden at the one-Michelin-star Restaurant du Palais Royal. Afterwards, head over to the Louvre or the Jardin des Tuilieries, a few minutes walk away.

  • Visit the Fondation Louis Vuitton: Rising up out of the Bois de Boulogne like an imperious ocean liner with billowing glass sails, Frank Gehry’s contemporary art museum and cultural center is the most captivating addition to the Parisian skyline since the unveiling of the Centre Pompidou in 1977. Commissioned by Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of luxury-goods conglomerate LVMH, it houses Arnault’s substantial private collection, including pieces by Pierre Huyghe, Gerhard Richter, Thomas Schütte, Ellsworth Kelly, Taryn Simon, Sarah Morris, and Christian Boltanski, among others. The Fondation Louis Vuitton also hosts important temporary exhibitions, like recent surveys of contemporary Chinese and African art and fabulous installations by the likes of Daniel Buren and Olafur Eliasson.

  • Watch the Luxembourg Gardens: Nothing says Paris like the Luxembourg Gardens. Bordered by Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, these lovely gardens are beloved by Parisians longing to bask on a lawn chair in the sunshine or enjoy an impromptu picnic. Children of all ages race their sailboats in the basin behind the Sénat, romp in the enclosed children’s’ playground, take in a puppet show, or ride the city’s oldest merry-go-round. A favorite circuit for joggers and amblers, the many paths are also perfect for an afternoon stroll past espaliered orchards and the old apiary, where beekeeping is taught and the honey is sold in the fall. Don’t miss the excellent art exhibits at the renowned Musée de Luxembourg.

  • Walk the Narrow Streets of the Ile Saint-Louis: Just behind the Notre-Dame gardens, the Pont Saint-Louis pedestrian bridge leads to the atmospheric streets and lively shopping of the Ile Saint-Louis. A perfect walk for flaneurs just taking in the majestic facades and quiet courtyards of beautiful 17th-century mansions, this peaceful island is truly an oasis. Enjoy traditional Parisian fare at the Brasserie de l’Isle Saint-Louis or sample one of the 90 scrumptious flavors of handmade, all-natural ice creams and sorbets—in flavors like wild strawberry, noisette, rum raisin, and white chocolate—at Bertillon, Paris’s most famous ice-cream maker.

  • Ride the Bateau Mouche: There’s nothing quite like seeing Paris from a boat on the Seine—and there’s no lack of boats to choose from. See Paris’s graceful bridges up close along with the city’s most famous landmarks on a relaxing 2 to 4 hour boat ride. The bateaux mouches offer everything from a gourmet meal, a flute of champagne or just sightseeing with commentary. Another option: the Bateau Bus operates continuously from 10am until 9:30pm every 20 minutes from eight stops around Paris. For 15€ you can hop on or off wherever and whenever you like all day long. Stops include the Musée d’Orsay, Louvre, Eiffel Tour, Champs Elysées, and Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

  • Picasso Museum: This immensely popular museum rose phoenix-like in late 2014, when it finally reopened after an ambitious (and often controversial) five-year makeover that cost an estimated €52 million. Home to the world’s largest public collection of Picasso’s inimitable oeuvre, it now covers almost 54,000 square feet in two buildings: the regal 17th-century Hôtel Salé and a sprawling new structure in the back garden that’s dedicated to temporary exhibitions. Diego Giacometti’s exclusively designed furnishings in the former are an added bonus.

  • Celebrate Bastille Day: Every July 14th, a series of spectacular events in Paris celebrates the infamous storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution. There’s a huge, televised parade and a never-ending fireworks display (head to Champ de Mars or the Jardins du Trocadéro for the best views of it all). This is French independence day and one of the liveliest days in the country.

  • Experience the Cinema en Plein Air: Every July and August, Paris rolls out the inflatable screen in the Parc de la Villete for this major outdoor cinema event in the 9th arrondissement. It’s hugely popular with locals who tend to bring food and wine! Better yet, it’s free!

  • Visit Maison du Victor Hugo: This beautiful apartment dates to 1605. Its most famous resident was the writer Victor Hugo (author of Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre Dame), who moved here when he was 30. His old apartment is now a museum dedicated to his life and writing. The museum is quite small, but Hugo lovers (like me) will find it very interesting. Open daily except for Mondays from 10am-6pm and it’s free. NOTE: At the time of writing this, the building has been closed for renovations.

  • Disney Land (for Families only?): Yes, Disney Land Paris is just around the corner. It is one of the major attractions to visits. No doubt, this would be an awesome family-thing to do. But, that’s not to say the theme park is nothing for the individual traveler or friends. This is something we recommend to everybody into theme parks.

Romantic Paris
Paris is ideal for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon, an anniversary trip, secret plans to propose, or any venture for a couple.

PARIS is a town of Love, therefore it’s fitting that the national capital has many thriving love lock locations. Love locks — a contemporary ‘tradition’ whereby sweethearts inscribe their names or initials on a padlock, attach it to a public structure, and throw away the key, for good, waterproofing their love.. Pont des Arts bridge was originally made in 1804 throughout the reign of Napoleon. The initial Pont des Arts suffered 2 aerial bombardments throughout war I and II, additionally as varied collisions with boats before collapsing in 1979 once a ship rammed into it. The contemporary bridge was inbuilt 1984 and is currently a United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization World Heritage web site along side the remainder of the Seine Riverfront in Paris. The Pont des Arts could be a widespread spot for picnics and outside art studios. The bridge’s position on the Seine River and therefore the Louvre makes it a well-liked spot for photographers additionally. The Pont des Arts is most illustrious for being the Lock Bridge in Paris. This tradition of inscribing names and putting it on a padlock has been in existence since late 2008.

Staying Connected
Even during a vacation in Paris, you might need to stay in touch with work, friends, or family while visiting. No need for concern, though. Wi-fi (wireless internet connection) is increasingly surfacing, cell phones can be rented, and you can purchase a French SIM card for your stay
