Paris

Do you need to escape the daily grind? Paris has a wide range of places to go and things to see.

The population of this area of Ile-de-France is roughly 2,100,000.

Dynamic and international, Paris is renowned for Eiffel Tower and Palace of Versailles. The Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre Museum are also famous throughout the world.

Disneyland® Paris and Aquaboulevard are wonderful places to have some quality time with your children. Want more? The La Geode and the Montmartre Funicular are sure to keep the smiles and laughter flowing.

Aquarium Tropical and Aquarium of Paris thrill visitors from near and far while also supporting aquatic preservation.

Your whole family will have a ball investigating the big and the small inhabitants at the Menagerie du Jardin des Plantes. Be sure to ask the staff about special events and where to find the zoo's rarer species.

To taste the true flavors of the region, be sure to visit the Clos Montmartre. Take a walking tour through the vineyards and learn how sommeliers recognize quality drops. If you find something you particularly love, arrange to have a case shipped back home.

Admire the wide range of plants and flowers on display when you and your friends stop by the Jardin des Plantes and the Jardin des serres d'Auteuil. Many visitors also enjoy taking a stroll around the Jardin des Tuileries and the Jardin des Serres d’Auteuil.

When the sun is shining, grab something for lunch and head out to one of the pleasant green spaces, such as the Luxembourg Gardens or Parc Monceau. You'll also find plenty of room to lie down in the grass at Champ de Mars and Parc des Buttes Chaumont.

Once you arrive, you'll be able to get up-to-date info about what's going on from Plaine Commune Grand Paris Tourist Office and Office du Tourisme et des Congres de Paris.

Would you like to do some bird-watching? Maybe some fishing if conditions are good? The local freshwater lakes offer a range of things to do for adventurers of all ages. Lac des Minimes, Bassin de la Villette and Lac Daumesnil are among the most popular. See which one best suits you before heading over for a fun-filled afternoon outdoors!

Need to escape the stresses of city life? Head out to Parc de St-Cloud and Bois de Boulogne. Parc Forestier de la Poudrerie and National Park of Port-Cros are also appreciated by nature-loving visitors.

See the world in a new light by visiting one of the area's well-curated cultural spaces. Meander through the hallways as you check out the collections at the Rodin Museum and the Music Museum. Equally rewarding are the Army Museum and the Museum of Air and Space.

The whole family will be intrigued by the fascinating objects and models on display at the region's science museums. Begin exploring at Paris Observatory or the Palais de la Decouverte. For a comprehensive scientific experience, you can also visit the City of Science and Industry and the Gallery of Comparative Anatomy and Paleontology.

Some travelers think of natural museums as a place to take the children, but the fascinating specimens at the Grande Galerie de l'Evolution and the Quai Branly Museum show that there's a good deal to keep the grown-ups entertained as well. You might also like to explore the Museum of Mankind and the Galerie de Minéralogie et de Géologie.

A haven for lovers of art, this area is home to a range of gallery spaces in which artists and designers regularly exhibit their wares. Soak up the trendy atmopshere at the Picasso Museum and the Museum Georges Pompidou. If you can fit them in, the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art and the Orsay Museum are also well worth your time.

History buffs can travel back through time at the Hotel de la Monnaie and the Carnavalet Museum. Do you like the sound of those? You'll be able to learn even more at the Musee National du Moyen Age and the Musee de Montmartre.

The Les Invalides and Grand Palais are certainly worth paying a visit to, even if you're not that into history. You might also like to get out the camera and snap some photos at Pere Lachaise Cemetery and the Pantheon.

Go for a stroll along Pont Neuf or Pont de la Concorde, two examples of civil engineering's golden days. You could also pass by Petit Pont or Pont du Carrousel and look down upon the streams of water below.

If you take an interest in the military history of the area, find a nice vantage point from which to view the old fortifications at Chateau de Vincennes.

Some of the region's most important people have called Palais Royal and Luxembourg Palace "home" over the years. Be sure to snap some photos as you admire their impressive architecture and lavish interiors. Palais de Chaillot and Palais-Bourbon are two more stately homes that have their share of stories to tell.

You don't have to be royalty to find pleasure in Malmaison Castle and Malmaison. For even more intersting views and historical stories, go and explore Domaine de Sceaux and Château de Bagatelle.

The spiritual side of the region is evidenced at Notre Dame Cathedral and Sainte Chapelle. Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris and Eglise Saint-Eustache are two more interesting holy sites.

Before you pack up your bags and head off home, ensure you visit some of Paris' lesser-known attractions. Pont des Arts and the National Library are well worth a look. If you can squeeze it in, also check out Place de la Republique or theatre du Chatelet.
