Trips to Paris

What to know about Paris, the capital of culture

Want to visit Paris but not sure where to start? Consider this your ultimate Paris getaway guide. We can whisk you away on the ideal flight and put you slap bang in the middle of Paris ready for a few days of exquisite architecture, fine dining, and high culture, but getting to Paris is just the start.

Opodo can find you the best flights to Paris, but you’ll need some direction once you arrive. This guide tells you how to get from Paris airport to the city centre, when the weather is best, and what the must-see attractions are.

More than 44 million people visit Paris every year. It’s among the top three most-visited cities in the world, so there are plenty of things to do. For starters, it’s a cultural epicentre and the home of historic monuments such as the Eiffel Tower and masterpieces like the Mona Lisa.

Paris isn't all high-brow tourist attractions. Fuelled by some of the world’s finest cuisine, Paris is a cosmopolitan city with exciting nightlife and plenty of places to eat, drink, shop or just watch the world go by.

Here is a tip for you: booking your flight and hotel at the same time and not separately can make you save up to 40%. Take advantage of a flight + hotel package in Paris to your destination and save time searching for hotels separately. If you have already purchased your flight and you’re only looking for a hotel, you can find it here.

Must See Attractions in Paris

You'll need a flight before you can sample the delights of Paris. Enter a few requirements into our search engine to find the perfect flight to Paris. Being close to the city’s hotspots is important, so you need to know which Paris airport is closer to the city centre.

The Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) is closest to the centre of Paris. Orly Airport (ORY) is a little further afield and is a smaller airport, with less frequent flights. Direct flights to Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) take just over an hour and can cost less than £50 with airlines like easyJet and Vueling.

Let’s say you’ve landed at Charles de Gaulle Airport and taken a 45-minute taxi ride to the city centre. Your bags have been dropped at the hotel and you’re eager to hit the ground running. There are plenty of must-see attractions in Paris. We can’t list them all, but we can give you a three-day itinerary filled with top-rated tourist attractions:

Day 1: Start with the City’s Cultural Icons

The obvious must-see things to do in Paris are the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. A trip to the Louvre, even if it’s just to see the Mona Lisa, is a must. The River Seine is also a prominent landmark you can’t ignore, but we’re not here to tell you things you probably already know. There are many more things you can do in Paris.

Day 1 should certainly be all about the big stuff. Do the iconic landmarks but add in a few more we haven’t mentioned, if you have time. Sainte-Chapelle and Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre are some of the most majestic and ornate buildings in Europe. Our top tip for getting around all the top attractions in a day is a guided bus tour or, if you prefer, you can rent bikes or electric scooters.

Day 2: It’s Time for Food, Drinks and Fun

You’ll eat and drink every day, of course, but we’d dedicate at least half a day (or more) to sample the best food Paris has to offer. The city is packed with Michelin-starred restaurants, backstreet bistros and fantastic French fancy spots. Throw in a few places to drink and you’ve got the perfect second day.

Some of the spots you might want to consider on your Paris getaway are:

Day 3: Enjoy the City’s Modern Marvels

The final day of your Paris city break should be all about its modern marvels. By this, we mean visiting some of its newer tourist attractions and taking advantage of modern innovations. For example, if you want high-end fashion with a contemporary feel, take a trip to the concept mall known as Merci.

For a food spot with a difference, Ground Control is 1,500 square metres of open space within an old train station. Filling that space (and your stomach) are dozens of food stalls, pop-up bars, craft shops and local entertainment.

Other modern must-see attractions in Paris are:

In order to discover the beautiful landscapes of the surroundings, you can always rent a car in Paris and travel the open road.
