With the economy as it is and the winter blues setting in, where better to go than for a weekend break to Paris, the city of love. Paris is the capital of France and the country’s largest city. Paris is today one of the world’s leading business and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world’s major global cities.

Things to do, Places to see! Paris’ museums and monuments are among its highest-esteemed attractions. The city’s most prized museum, the Louvre, welcomes over 8 million visitors a year, being by far the world’s most visited art museum. The city’s cathedrals are another main attraction: its Notre Dame de Paris and the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur receive 12 million and eight million visitors respectively. The Eiffel Tower, by far Paris’ most famous monument, averages over six million visitors per year and more than 200 million since its construction. Disneyland Resort Paris is a major tourist attraction not only for visitors to Paris, but to Europe as well, with 14.5 million visitors in 2007.

Paris can be cheap you know! The key to food is to stay away from the beaten tracks and the obviously expensive Champs Elysees. Around the lesser visited quarters , there are many cheap and yummy restaurants to be found. The best and cheapest way to get around Paris is on foot, and secondly, using the Metro which is around one euro fifty for a one way trip of any length. In the artsy quarters of Paris there are many bargains to be had once again, if you are prepared to look. Souvenirs are easily found and can be really inexpensive as long as you don’t buy from the tourist sites. Just remember to keep your eyes open and have fun!
