Planning to visit Paris? Our Paris Travel Guide digs deep on why this city is so well-loved not just by the locals living in it, but the travellers who have come and gone, and even by those who haven’t yet. We don’t claim to be the only ones who know where the best places in Paris are. But we can confidently say that the information we share is accurate, useful, and authentic.  Here, we tell our travellers about the Paris we’ve come to know and love so that you may do so as well. You’ll find updated information on different Paris attractions that have been in books and films, as well as the less talked about but essential ones like taking the Paris metro. You’ll also find a lot of content about enjoying the luxuries this city affords its guests: quality shopping and good food.

With over 16 million international travellers visiting Paris every year, we know for a fact it pays to plan ahead so you can skip the long lines, dodge the tourist traps, and ultimately have an authentic Paris experience.
