Why travel to Paris?

The art

Paris has long been a hotbed for artists and enthusiasts alike. It’s hard to go far without being inspired—just look to the prints sold along the Left Bank, the stands of sidewalk painters in Montmartre and the seemingly infinite works at the Louvre.

The food

From a picnic lunch of fresh bread and Brie from the Marché Bastille to dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant, the dining options are endless (and delicious) when traveling to Paris.

The lifestyle

It may sound cliché, but Parisians truly embody a certain je ne sais quoi. Channel your inner Francophile and spend an afternoon people-watching at a cafe, browsing an art gallery or reading in the Luxembourg Gardens.

Must-visit neighborhoods for Paris vacations

From historic monuments and artsy haunts to haute shopping streets, each area has something special to offer.

Montmartre

Set on a hill overlooking the city, the majestic Sacré-Coeur Basilica takes center stage when you arrive at Montmartre. Beyond the basilica, the artsy neighborhood extends into a lively web of cafes and galleries. Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh all had studios here.

The Marais

This trendy neighborhood is packed with hidden gems: up-and-coming art galleries, charming boutiques and lesser-known museums, like the Picasso Museum and Carnavalet Museum.

Latin Quarter

Set on the Left Bank, the Latin Quarter is definitely worth a stroll or two. A lively neighborhood with many bistros and cafes, it’s home to the Sorbonne and the Luxembourg Gardens.

The first arrondissement

This is the geographic center —and arguably the historic city center too—with landmarks such as Notre-Dame, the Louvre, the Tuileries Gardens and the Arc de Triomphe.
