What to expect in Paris
‘Paris in the springtime’, the ‘City of Love’, the ‘City of Lights’ – Paris has many titles and songs to its name, and it is little wonder why in this impossibly romantic place. It doesn’t matter what you do when you get to Paris, just being there is enough to invoke the most heart-warming sense of romance. Its beautiful elegant streets you have seen in hundreds of films yet it is still breath-taking being there. Its cake shop windows are like scenes of edible contemporary art. Museums and galleries groan under the weight of prestigious works by world renowned artists while the buildings themselves, like the Louvre, are icons in their own right. Pavement cafes, vast cemeteries where legendary and eminent celebrities rest, chic bars and even chicer boutiques, beautiful squares and grassy parks, outdoor markets laden with fresh produce and the aroma of the best food from around the world wafting from tiny restaurants - these are just some of the best bits of Paris. But there are many, many more...
It may be a cliché but springtime really is one of the best times to visit Paris. Flights are often cheaper and there are fewer tourists packing into this already densely populated place. Spring can be warm and wet while summers often reach the high twenties. Note that in August many places close for the holidays. Winters can be cold and damp but again it is much quieter in terms of tourist numbers. Accommodation ranges from luxury five star hotels to family B&Bs and budget backpackers. Those on a budget may find Paris a challenge as it is one of the more expensive cities in Europe. A budget dinner can be found for one from €12* but this can skyrocket to the hundreds of Euro if frequenting a Michelin starred establishment. Wine and coffee are reasonably priced but nearly all attractions, museums and galleries charge an entry fee. Paris can be done on a budget with some planning but it is worth saving the pennies for this trip of a lifetime.
