Top 10 Reasons To Visit Paris - Part 2

7) The Parks and Gardens 

Walk in the Jardin des Tuileries (Tuileries Gardens) on your way from the Louvre Museum to the Champs Elysees (or vice versa). This is a place where I like to rest weary feet, linger over a coffee, or have a light lunch with a small pichet (carafe) of wine.

Visit Luxembourg Gardens, perhaps the most famous gardens, where you can just sit in the Sun, listen to music at the weekend, play boules, or even buy the honey produced in the garden's bee-hives at the end of the Summer.

Or you can visit one of my personal favourites, Parc Monceau. This is much more informal than Luxembourg Gardens and a little off the beaten track, though not all that far from the Arc de Triomphe.

8) A Boat Trip on the River Seine

Yes, you can take a cruise on the River Seine right through the heart of Paris. You can eat on board some cruises, or you can just relax and take in the great views, including Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and the romantic bridges of Paris.

9) The Night Life

Paris has some fabulous night life. I love the jazz clubs, for which Paris is well renowned, but even more popular with tourists are the great shows at places such as the Lido, the Moulin Rouge and the Crazy Horse. You can eat and be entertained.

10) The Walking

In my view, the most simple pleasure of all, and in Paris, one of the very best. Walk around at your leisure or take an Organized Theme Walk with a local expert guide.

There are so many more things to see and do, but I can't include them all here. For example, there is music at the Concert Halls and at the Opera House. Or the sport - Paris is a great venue for Tennis, Rugby and Football (Soccer).

And so much more.
