How to do Paris in 48 hours

by Jess

Multiple obligatory stops enjoying the cafe culture and people watching

Montmartre and the area around Sacre Coeur, whilst touristic is great for people watching/ hanging out in evenings...

Enjoy the views over Paris and the street entertainers from the main steps

...or if you’re feeling energetic, climb the tower of Sacre Coeur

... where you’ll get the best views of Paris (and no busker/ street seller hassle!)

... got to be done! Be an Instagram tourist and get some great shots from the peaceful gardens under the Eiffel Tower

Get up it if you can for yet more spectacular views. Lift and step (phew!) options

Tick off the Arc de Triomphe if traversing Paris by metro (hop on and off!)

more aimless wondering of cobbled streets and side cafes...

are you brave enough to try the snails?

Got to go to at least one of the world famous galleries. You might find the queues crazy at the Louvre, as we did...

but the Musee D’Orsay is highly recommended - full of world famous Renaissance art.

and then it’s a short stroll across town to Notre Dame... beautiful inside and out.

The Moulin Rouge looks fab at night... worth a walk by even if you don’t manage to get tickets

A sunset cruise is the perfect way to end a day of sightseeing in Paris, watching the lights come on across the city

So pretty! Enough of a taster to know you really should come back soon...
