The Best of Paris
Dominated by the white Sacré-Coeur basilica, Montmartre is often referred to as a village, complete with its own grapevines and the only funicular in Paris. From the top of the hill, admire the panoramic views of Parisian roofs and indulge in the popular atmosphere on the Place du Tertre which has been home to artists, caricturists and musicians for as long as Paris has been a cultural hub.
Then walk down to the world famous Moulin Rouge cabaret, taking in the many arty shops on the way... watch out you're now in the saucy Pigalle district!
The largest avenue in the capital, the Champs Elysees offers great strolling, shopping and dining opportunities. Stretching between The Egyptian Obelisk on the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe on the Place Charles de Gaulle, the Champs Elysees is lined with restaurants, cafés, flagship stores, luxury boutiques and some of Paris top museums - Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Palais de la Découverte and the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton.
Paris' most iconic monument, the Eiffel Tower stands proud and beautiful in one of Paris' manicured park - the Champs de Mars. It is well worth taking the time to walk around, not just under the tower, and admire its wrought iron lattice structure from different perspectives. Photo opportunities with the tower in the background are potentially at their most romantic from across the Seine, in the Jardins du Trocadero by the lovely water fountains.
Le Marais quarter is so many things at once! Magnificent architecture - Place des Vosges - flirts with uber trendy art shops and independent designers boutiques, many of which are, unusually for the capital, open on Sunday. Historically the oldest part of Paris, it is still very much the centre, the heart and the soul of Paris.
The Musée Picasso is one of Le Marais must visit.
Saint Germain des Prés
Saint Germain des Prés is a busy area of town with an important student influence. The world famous university, La Sorbonne is one of the reasons behind the many bookshops and the relaxed café culture that you will enjoy there. Leisurely browse the 'Bouquinistes' or bookstalls on the river quays or stroll hand in hand in the popular Jardins du Luxembourg.
This is where you arrive when you travel by train from St Malo. Montparnasse is a wonderful mix of bretons creperies and fruits de mer restaurants, of cinemas and theatres and of locals and visitors. Montparnasse is a lively area, a popular destination for Parisians by day for shopping and by night for entertainment.
The Tour Montparnasse is hosts to a good department store, including a small but very convenient 'Galeries Lafayette'.
