Place Vendôme is also within easy reach. Admire its elegant column set in the centre of a vast square lined with luxury shops.

Many artistic forms are on display: painting, sculpture, pottery, tapestry. All cultures are present at the Louvre, with collections of Occidental, Egyptian, Greek, and Etruscan art, amongst others.

Just a few metro stops away, you will find the iconic Eiffel Tower, as majestic from below as from above. Despite the wait, the joy of ascending to the second or third floor of the “Dame de Fer” (Iron Lady) is an experience unlike any other, and one which nobody visiting the city should miss out on.
There are also a number of attractions which can be reached on the RER regional express trains, in the suburbs of Paris. The majestic Palace of Versailles was the home of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI. The gardens are also a joy to behold.
