Holidays in Paris

City breaks to Paris work in every season. Stroll past Notre Dame in winter – hot chocolate in hand – or dine al fresco on duck confit and red wine in summertime. All year round, buskers play by the Seine, couples marvel at the views from the Eiffel Tower, and waiters serve morning croissants and coffee by the Sacre Coeur. Spend your afternoons casting your eyes over hordes of man’s best brush work in museums like the Louvre, and return to stylish hotels like Raffles Royal Monceau, to freshen up before a delicious Parisian dinner. Eating out needn’t be the pricey, either. Spend your trip to Paris discovering hidden bakeries passed down through the family for generations, and practice your French on master cheesemakers as they bag your order.

Things to do in Paris

Museums and Galleries

‘Water Lilies’ by Monet. ‘Self Portrait’ by Van Gogh. ‘Mona Lisa’ by Leonardo da Vinci. These are just three of the masterpieces you can expect to see in the largest museum in the world. In fact, the Louvre is just as much a work of art its 38,000 pieces. But there’s plenty more to see on a long weekend in Paris. Visit Centre Pompidou on the riverbank, which displays photographs and contemporary designs, or go to Musée d'Orsay to see Impressionist paintings hanging in an ornate railway station. There’s also the Picasso Museum which houses over 4,000 pieces by the Spanish painter, while Musée D'art Moderne keeps things fresh with its contemporary exhibitions and permanent collections alike. On a short break to Paris, it’s best not to cram too much in – choose your favourite museums and start exploring.

 

Parisian Fashion

Paris is undoubtedly the fashion capital of the world. Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel – virtually every major fashion designer has a flag planted on Avenue Montaigne and Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Shopping in Paris has, like most pursuits in the City of Love, developed into an art form. You can admire more than clothes in the Galeries Lafayette department store. There’s an Art Nouveau staircase, domed glass ceilings, and the seventh-floor observation deck has views of the Paris Opera House and the Eiffel Tower. At the other end of the fashion spectrum, you’ll find the backstreet flea market of Brocante des Abbesses in Montmatre. Rummage through bric-a-brac, meet jewellery designers, and drink coffee with the locals. Once you’ve bagged some bargains, walk up to the Sacre Coeur for sweeping views of the city.

 

French Cuisine

For centuries, France’s capital has pursued the crème de la crème of dining – and it’s fair to say, they’ve perfected it. From the oven-fresh scent of buttery croissants in the morning, to wine-enriched sauces and creamy purees that decorate the dinner plates, Parisian food is an art form. Commis chefs, sous chefs and chefs-des-parties arrive from all over the world to sharpen their knives in the kitchens of the Bourse, Sentier and Montmartre districts. But you won’t have to dine in high-end restaurants every night to make the most of it. Yes, there are the five-course classic restaurants of Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower, but a cheap trip to Paris still centres on fine food and rich wines. Off-the-beaten-track bistros, brasseries and hipster bars serve food just as good as anywhere else.

 

Best time to visit Paris

The best time to go to Paris depends on what you want to see and do. If you’re planning to spend most of your time in museums and art galleries, autumn or winter is the best time to go – just make sure you book any exhibitions of interest in advance. Generally speaking, winter is the best time for cheap holidays to Paris, although Christmas can be pricey. As with any European city, crowds and queues get bigger between June and August. But, if you want a food-focussed break to Paris, it’s best to go in spring or summer when restaurants lay out their al fresco tables, and the parks and famous streets are in bloom. Fashionistas should visit Paris out of season for the biggest bargains and, of course, January has post-Christmas sales.
