Paris is a great destination for a trip packed with culture as you will find some of the world's most famous works of art in its many galleries and museums.
The Louvre Museum (Mus'e du Louvre) is the most visited museum in the world. Housed in the imposing Palais du Louvre, the Louvre is home to some of the most iconic pieces of art ever created, including Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and St. John the Baptist, Caravaggio's Death of the Virgin and Michelangelo's Dying Slave. The Palais du Louvre is also worth visiting for the stunning architecture of the building itself and the glass pyramid within the grounds.
The Louvre is just one museum to explore during your holiday in Paris. Other museums worth visiting include the Mus'e Picasso, the Mus'e Rodin, the Mus'e du Montparnasse and the Mus'e National d'Art Moderne.
Paris holidays are simply packed with things to see and if you don't fancy wandering around a museum, there are plenty of monuments spread across the city. The Arc de Triomphe is an impressive structure which attracts tourists from far and wide, while the Eiffel Tower is one of the world's most iconic landmarks and a great place to take a loved one on a romantic trip to Paris.
If you're looking for Paris holidays suitable for families, why not treat the younger ones to a trip to Disneyland Paris? The theme park is around a 30 minute drive from the city and is great for a fun day out or a longer stay.
