Must eat at:
In this gastronomic capital city, the Michelin-starred chefs abound... and it would be almost insulting not to visit at least one of them, if your budget can stretch to it. Pierre Gagnaire at the Hotel Balzac in Rue Balzac is one of the world’s greats, having held three stars for many years – and you can expect to pay over £150 a head for the privilege.
Must be there for:
The main state celebration of the French Republic, Bastille Day on July 14th is a massive national holiday, with dancing, parties and balls all over the city – not to mention a world-famous military parade and a huge firework display to top it all off.
- To see Paris at its best, walk. Although public transport is quick and efficient, you’ll see much more if you’re on foot. Start at the Arc de Triomphe and end at the Ile de la Cite and you’ll encompass some of the greatest urban sights in the world.
- Nothing beats Paris at night – especially if you walk up the steps of Sacre Couer and look back on the city.
British citizens do not need a visa to visit France.
