Top Ten Activities in Paris

Paris is the world’s most visited city, with some 70 million tourists visiting each year. The French capital is home to 2.2 million people in its city-centre, and almost 12 million within the metropolitan area. Paris is located in the northern region of France, with the river Seine flowing right through the heart of the city. Whether it’s a leisure stroll along the Seine that captures the vistas of Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower, or the beautiful chaos of the Arc de Triomphe’s Place Charles de Gualle, it won’t take you long to realize you’re in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. One visit in your lifetime is simply not enough, but that is all it will take to captivate your heart. Thereafter it’s the start of a life-long love affair with Parisian culture, art, fashion, food, and architecture. In this video guide, I have selected the top ten activities in Paris every visitor must attempt while in the city. There is so much to do and see, so start here with my ‘Paris Travel Guide Video,’ research further, and customize your trip accordingly. Bon Voyage & Bon Apetit, Safe Travels to all!
