Travel Guide to Paris

When in Paris, don’t forget to...

Purchase the Paris City Passport for discounted prepaid access to all the Parisian must-sees. It includes unlimited transportation in and around the city, a riverboat cruise, entry to over 60 museums and monuments, and more.

Take a free walking tour with Sandeman’s New Europe tours. Lasting up to three-and-a-half hours, the guides give you an authentic introduction to the historical city, taking you where buses simply can’t, from the banks of the River Seine through to the royal gardens and beyond.

Look down upon the rest of Paris whilst in Montmartre. On this highest hill in Paris sits the striking Sacre Coeur Basilica, a picturesque stone church from whose grassy surrounds you can have gorgeous views of the Parisian skyline.

Wander around the resting places of numerous iconic figures in the peaceful Pere Lachaise, Montparnasse and Montmartre cemeteries. For starters, you’ll find Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and Edith Piaf interred in the Pere Lachaise Cemetery.

Immerse in academic history in the Latin Quarter. Apart from the Sorbonne University, it is home to a variety of historical buildings and a selection of bars, restaurants, cafes and bookstores.

Pick up picnic supplies at one of the many boulangeries (bakeries) in town and then head to one of the many parks around town. For spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower, pick your spot under a shady tree in the Parc du Champ de Mars.

Shop in the vicinity of the Etienne Marcel Metro station, where you’ll find the best thrift shops carrying a vast array of vintage clothing and accessories.
