Early Morning

You can start your morning in Paris with a relaxed walk along Seine’s southern bank.

As your eyes settle on the romantic horizon, market stalls and street acts set up all around you, and you’ll be able to experience the real culture of Paris.

If you’re looking for a bit of history on your early morning tour of Paris, take a detour to the city’s central square. At the North West corner, you’ll find a statue that was built to mark the city of Brest – and also the spot where Louis XVI’s head was dismembered by guillotine. You can also visit one of the oldest hotels in the city, the 17th century Hotel des Invalides. Part of the hotel is now a museum, and it was used as a war veterans’ residence during the last world war.


There are plenty of amazing places to eat in Paris, especially if you’re looking to try out the local cuisine. From pizza and snails to andouillette and pot au feu, tourists from all over the world book a trip to Paris just to let their taste buds revel in the glorious foods. Visiting the art galleries is also a popular tourist (and local) activity to do at lunch time.

Take a boat across the river, and you’ll find some of the world’s best impressionists painting on the water front. Self-portraits can be expensive, but they’re well worth the money.

Late Afternoon

As the sun set’s over the romantic city of Paris, take a taxi cab to the Eifel Tower. This huge structure is the most visited paid-monument in the entire world, and millions of people flock to the city every year to gaze at its glory.
