The Paris Area Guide

Sights and attractions

Paris is a city that has captured the hearts of millions of people all over the world. Home to beautiful buildings, magnificent works of art, a rich history and 2.2million people, one look at this city explains just why so many have such a romanticised image of France’s capital. When it comes to things to do and sights to see, you will want for nothing in Paris. You will no doubt find that the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and Versailles are among the first things that come to mind – and for good reason. While these opulent structures are a must-see for anyone looking to relocate to Paris, you will quickly find that there is so much more on offer in this ancient city.

Get out and about and explore the hidden backstreets and obscure alleyways and you will uncover a completely different Paris to the one displayed in the tour guides. Secret cinemas, hidden bars and delightful restaurants are only some of the treasures you will find if you take the time to look for them.

Restaurants and cafes

It is a well-known fact that food is something the French do incredibly well. For those wishing to sample some of the best interpretations of regional French food, as well as incredible recreations of an array of international cuisines, there is no better place to be than Paris. The city is currently home to more than 70 Michelin-starred restaurants, helping to make it one of the most foodie-friendly cities in the world. That being said, food at these establishments does not come cheap, so be prepared to have your wallet at the ready! That being said, you don’t always have to go to the fanciest of restaurants in order to experience delicious food, as there are a whole host of more reasonably priced establishments serving up mouth-watering food that won’t break the bank when the time to settle the bill comes!

If you fancy yourself to be quite the chef, Paris is home to a number of bustling food markets where all manner of fresh and locally sourced produce can be purchased. Some of these markets include Marché Bastille, Marché Mouffetard and the Marché International de Rungis.

Shops

Paris enjoys the reputation of being the fashion capital of the world and when you consider the fact that the city is home to a number of the classic names associated with European fashion, it is easy to see where this reputation comes from. Take a stroll down the grand Avenue des Champs-Élysées and discover just why this famous street has been crowned as being the hub of fashion and beauty in Paris and draws so many comparisons with New York’s 5th Avenue.

While Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Dolce and Gabbana may all have a strong presence in Paris, don’t think that you are going to have to break the bank every time you want to get your hands on a new sweater or handbag. Classic high street brands such as Topshop, Zara and Uniqlo all have multiple stores throughout the city.

Travel

There are a large number of ways through which the city of Paris can be reached. A handful of airports serve the city, catering to both domestic and international flights from Europe and further afield. If you are venturing to the city from overseas, it is highly likely that you will arrive at Charles de Gaulle Airport. From here you can travel into the city centre on public transport or hail a taxi for a more direct and less stressful trip.

For those seeking to embark on a European holiday, the trains departing from Gare du Nord station in the city centre provide an efficient and picturesque way of reaching your destination – even if travel times may be a bit longer than if you were to fly. As you would expect from a modern European city, Paris is served by a brilliant public transport network made up of the Metro, buses and a number of trams. All of these are well-priced and are a great way of getting about the city quickly.
