Marias – where you can admire the symmetrical precision of trees lining the former royal park, Place de Vosges. Or admire the work of modern artists Henry Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali at the George Pompidou museum before a look at the Hotel de Ville, a city hall dating back to 1553.
Montmartre – often features among the best tours in Paris as a district of artistic history that includes Sacre Coeur Basilica, a Roman Catholic church that dominates the city skyline and the Moulin Rouge cabaret immortalised by Toulouse-Lautrec.
The French capital comes alive at night, with many of its most famous buildings illuminated to create an incredible spectacle. A unique way to see this is with Paris tours by boat as part of a gentle night cruise down the River Seine.
