The Paris Area Guide

Things to do

As the capital of France and home to more than 2.2million people, you would struggle to run out of things to do in Paris. The City of Lights is a Mecca for all things art, history and culture related, and is home to world-famous buildings such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame. While these may be the more obvious sites to see on a day out – don’t think that this is all Paris has to offer. The longer you spend in this city, the more you will realise that Paris is a treasure chest of hidden gems, which many tourists would miss in their rush to get to the most famous sites and attractions.

Take some time to explore the numerous side streets and alleyways of this sprawling city and you never know what you might just stumble upon. Charming boutiques, homely bakeries and even outdoor museums are just some of the things you will be able to uncover if you decide to get out and enjoy the sunshine – and you certainly should, as sunny days can be hard to come by in Paris.

Places to eat

If there is one thing the Parisians do well, it is food. It wouldn’t be unfair to say that even if you went out for dinner at a different restaurant every night for the next 10 years, you still wouldn’t run out of great places to eat in Paris. Whether you are after traditional French fare or some of the best interpretations of international cuisine, you will want for nothing in Paris. Don’t think that dining out in Paris will break the bank, either. Mixed among the numerous Michelin-starred restaurants (there are nine restaurants in Paris that have the coveted three-Michelin-star rating) are dozens of cheap and cheerful cafes, restaurants and bars – the majority of which are more than capable of serving up a tasty morsel or two.

If you fancy trying your hand at preparing your own version of French cuisine in the kitchen at home, a trip to one of the city’s expansive food markets is well worth the effort. Such markets include Marché International de Rungis, Marché Bastille and Marché Mouffetard, and any wannabe chefs will be able to find all they need for their attempt at whipping up the perfect meal.

Shopping

Any seasoned shopper worth their salt will know that Paris is the fashion capital of the world. Many of the great names of European fashion (think along the lines of Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Dior) all have their headquarters in this magnificent city. The world-famous Avenue des Champs-Élysées is the centre of beauty and high-fashion in Paris and this glamorous street is often compared with 5th Avenue in New York City.

However, you shouldn’t be fooled into thinking that shopping in Paris is only ever going to be about designer goods that are most likely going to be unobtainable for the majority of people. More reasonably priced threads can always be purchased from the likes of H&M, Topshop and Urban Outfitters, all of which have multiple stores throughout the city. If mega malls are what you’re after, a visit to Les Quatre Temps will certainly be worth your while. Les Quatre Temps is located in the business district of La Défense in the west of Paris and is supposedly the largest shopping mall in Europe.

Getting there & around

Travellers will find no shortage of ways to get into the city of Paris. The city is served by a number of airports, including Charles de Gaulle Airport – which is the busiest airport in France. The majority of people arriving in the city will most likely find themselves arriving at Charles de Gaulle before heading into the city on board the RER train.

Gare du Nord railway station is located in the centre of Paris and is the busiest of its kind in Europe. This international station welcomes trains from the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. In terms of travelling around the city itself, commuters will find a brilliant metro system and multiple bus routes at their disposal. Those brave enough to take on Paris’ notoriously busy traffic will be able to hire a number of rental bicycles, known as Vélib’. These pay-as-you-go bikes operate in a similar manner to London’s ‘Boris Bike’ network.
