Paris City Breaks (France)
By:myvacations.co.uk

When you have decided to take a city breaks in Paris, there are several things that you should do. The first thing that you want to remember is that your city break should be full of plans in order to fit in everything that you would like to do, but also that you should try to do a little bit of everything.

After you have decide on your evenings, you should plan your days out as well as possible. If you have many days in your city break, you are going to be able to do many things. However, if you only have a couple, you are going to have to think carefully about what is important. You can see things like the Eiffel Tower, the Arch de Triumph, and several churches in one afternoon, simply by taking the underground to the various stops. On the other hand, if you plan on going to the Louvre, you should plan on having at least one full day to do this so that you don't feel rushed and you can see as much of this as possible.

Palaces and Landmarks

Notre Dame is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in the world and boasts beautiful stained glass windows and a massive organ, which has an astonishing 7,800 pipes! The great bell, Emmanuel, is tolled to mark the hours of the day and special occasions. Astonishingly, the cathedral itself was never officially finished...

The Panthéon was originally intended to be a church dedicated to St. Genevieve, but is now most famous as a burial place for such famous names as Voltaire, the Curies and Rousseau. Located in the 5th arrondissement on the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, the Panthéon looks out over all of Paris. Head down to the catacombs for a particularly interesting experience. Its architect, Jacques-Germain Soufflot, died before his work was achieved, and his plans were not entirely followed. Nevertheless, it is one of the most important architectural achievements of its time and the first great neoclassical monument.

Because Paris is such a diverse and interesting city, you should be able to create a city break that is specifically tailored exactly to who you are and to what you enjoy. This is a great city for anyone to visit, and no matter what you are currently in to, you should be able to plan a holiday that is exactly what you need.
