Explore The Most Romantic City in the World – Paris with Travelocity India’s Exciting
Paris, both the capital of France and of the historic Île de France region, is located in northern central France. Dubbed the “City of Light”, Paris is known internationally as the most romantic city in the world – which some say is fast becoming a cliché.
Paris stimulates the senses, demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted and smelled. From romance along the Seine to landscapes on bus-sized canvases to the pick-an-ism types in cafes monologuing on the use of garlic or the finer points of Jerry Lewis, Paris is the essence of all things French.

Activities – Places of Interest
Many of Paris’ significant sights are strung along its river, and its quartiers each have their own distinct personalities, so you can experience a lot without covering much ground. The museums, monuments and the two islands are a magnet for visitors but it can be just as rewarding to wander.
Arc de Triomphe
Tel: 01 55 37 73 77 (info)
The Arc de Triomphe is the world’s largest traffic roundabout and the meeting point of 12 avenues. From the viewing platform at the top (284 steps up), you can see the avenues – many named after illustrious generals – radiating toward every part of Paris. Tickets to the platform are sold in the underground passageway – the only sane way to reach the base of the arch – that surfaces on the even-numbered side of Ave des Champs-Élysées. France’s national remembrance service is held here annually on Nov 11th.

Built for the 1889 Exposition Universelle (World Fair), held to commemorate the centennial of the Revolution, the Tour Eiffel was the world’s tallest structure at 320m (1050ft) until Manhattan’s Chrysler Building was completed. Initially opposed by the city’s artistic and literary elite the tower was almost torn down in 1909.
Musée du Louvre
Tel: 01 40 20 51 51 (info) / 01 40 20 53 17 (booking)
The Louvre may be the world’s greatest art museum – but it’s also the one most avoided by visitors to Paris. Daunted by its size and overwhelming richness, many people head to smaller galleries. But if you have even the merest interest in the fruits of human civilisation from antiquity to the 19th century, then visit you must.

Bateaux Mouches runs the biggest tour boat company on the Seine. Cruises depart from and return to the Pont de l’Alma and pass the Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower in the west, and Île St-Louis in the east. The night time spectacle of Paris shimmering off the Seine on a summer evening is an unforgettable experience.
Catacombes de Paris
Tel: 01 43 22 47 63 (info)
In 1785, Paris decided to solve the problem of its overflowing cemeteries by exhuming the bones of the buried and relocating them to the tunnels of several disused quarries, leading to the creation of the Catacombes. Visitors to this disturbing ‘attraction’ will find themselves 20m (65ft) underground, working their way along corridors stacked with bones. During WWII, the tunnels were used as a headquarters by the Resistance. People over 60 can get in for free, which says a lot about the French sense of humour.

The Pompidou Centre, also known simply as Beaubourg, is all about modern and contemporary 20th-century art. Thanks in part to its vigorous schedule of temporary exhibitions, it’s the most visited cultural site in Paris. Two floors are dedicated to some of the 40000-plus works of the Musée Nationale d’Art Moderne, the country’s collection of 20th-century art.
