A surprisingly small city with an extremely big reputation, Paris needs no introduction.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Demonstrated by the Pont des Arts, Paris is the city of love, what more can you ask for
  • Although full of tourist traps, Paris is the gift that keeps on giving. With new trendy pop-ups and exhibitions continually reinventing themselves, there is always more to see
  • Whether you are eating in the quietest square tucked away behind the Sacre Coeur or dining in the wonderful Le Bristol, the food is spectacular.

Paris City Breaks: the Detail

It is often, and deservedly, referred to as the most romantic city in the world, and one that has a new discovery around each cobbled corner, both for the first time visitor and for the many who are hit by the Paris bug and return time and time again.

Every street reveals a famous landmark, museum or the ideal people watching café (one of our favourite pastimes) and Paris is definitively a walking city, so take the time to explore its hidden streets and seek out the endless antique shops and patisseries before heading for the must-see sights that line its leafy boulevards.

Paris is also renowned for its fantastic food, and with its wide selection of traditional bistros, trendy restaurants and Michelin-starred establishments, it is easy to see why it is a second heaven for food lovers. We are constantly updating our Paris Dossier with the latest, greatest places to eat, so you can hit the ground running on a gourmet long weekend safe in the knowledge we've done the research for you. It was a tough gig, but somebody had to eat their body weight in escargot.

And then there are the hotels. Literally thousands of them ranging from backpacker dorms to grande dames and spread across the arrondisements. After yet more research, we've narrowed our selection of hotels down to a hallowed few that we have chosen for that all important combination of value, location, service, comfort and je ne sais quoi that makes for the perfect Paris city break hotel.

So now you know the best places to stay, see and eat, what are you waiting for? Paris awaits…
