Explore Paris
“Paris is an ocean. Explore it, and you still won’t know its depths.” 
Honoré de Balzac

Just Paris – it is the most visited city in the world with a reputation as the most romantic one. No matter how long you stay, a day or much longer, Paris sticks with you. Maybe it’s the Eiffel Tower, fondly referred to as the Iron Lady or the Louvre. Perhaps a boat ride on the Seine and a concert at Ste-Chapelle. Or possibly it’s the chance to wander away from the crowds and see how Parisians really live. Dining is a key part of any visit to Paris. Find a spot at a neighbourhood bistro or a Michelin- starred restaurant. Whatever you are looking for you’ll find, including vegan fare. And don’t forget her incredible collections of art. There are museums and galleries to suit every taste.
