Get the lay of the land. Read up on some of Paris' most interesting neighborhoods.
After a relaxing morning in your hotel, how about a stroll though Bastille & Bercy? Lots to see and enjoy here. What used to be old wine warehouses have been transformed into a variety of shops and cafés. The neighborhood also includes.
Home to the Moulin Rouge, where painter Henri de Toulouse Lautrec depicted life as he saw and lived it; the exquisite Sacre Coeur high on Montmartre; and the city's most famous flea market, Puces de Cliganancourt.
It may not be as glamorous as it was before the advent of car showrooms, fast-food, and shopping arcades, but then there's still the Lido. A mix of old world and trendiness, the avenue is still one of the most popular avenues in Europe.
Not only is the Eiffel Tower Paris' most famous attraction, the area surrounding it is a veritable cultural haven where the likes of Hemingway and Fitzgerald used to haunt the neighborhood cafés.
The Louvre, considered by many to be the world's greatest museum of art, is the main attraction in this Paris neighborhood. It's here that you can scrutinize Mona Lisa's smile or study the perfection of the Venus de Milo.
This is the intellectual heart and soul of Paris. The bohemian St. Germain is full of bookshops, galleries, bistros, and coffeehouses. Here you'll find the 60-acre Jardin du Luxembourg.
