France’s capital needs no introduction. Paris is filled with monuments, museums and buildings that are recognised the world-over. Whether you’re a seasoned visitor or are experiencing the City of Light for the first time, there’s plenty to do on Paris cruises. Start with the big-hitters: the iconic Eiffel Tower, the majestic Notre-Dame Cathedral, the statement-making Arc de Triomphe. Everything is linked by wide, tree-lined boulevards that effortlessly exude elegance and class. Pick up some sweet macaroons and strong coffee as you take a leisurely stroll past the cafes and boutiques on the Champs d’Élysées. There’s simply no place better to soak up some arts and culture, either. Of course, no Paris trip is complete without a visit to the Louvre, while the Musée d’Orsay is the place to go for impressionist paintings. If you’re more interested in contemporary art, make a beeline for the renowned Pompidou. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, treat yourself to something delectable from one of the city’s countless boulangeries – after all, Paris is famous for its patisserie. End your day in Paris with a stroll through the Luxembourg Gardens, which date back to 1612. Or, alternatively take a seat at a terrace café with a crisp glass of white wine, and simply watch the world go by.
