Paris is a great place for walking. It's wonderful just to drift around, as the fancy takes you, but if it's
your first visit, or if you have limited time, and you want to make the most of your visit, it's a great idea to
focus on a "themed walk" or two.
You can do this by booking a guided tour with one of the organizations specialising in that field, or you can
have just as much fun doing your own themed walks. Guided tours are great, and you get added value from the
experience the guides can bring to the walks, but the downside is that you have to meet a specific timetable that
may not suit you.
Here are some brief suggestions:
Walk 1: The Traditional or Classic Paris Walk
walk is designed so that you can see some of the most famous and iconic sights in the World. It's a long walk, but
it's very flat and there are many cafes and restaurants, where you can stop for a well deserved break.
Walk 2: The Latin Quarter Walk
This walk takes you to
some of the very oldest places in Paris - back to the Middle Ages and beyond as well as the most famous gardens in
Walk 3: The Montmartre Walk
Montmartre is definitely a
place you want to visit. It's located on a hill or "butte" at one of the highest spots in Paris, where you get
fabulous views all over the City.
