"Paris, The City of Light" Paris by roamer61

Paris Travel Guide: 22,881 reviews and 56,906 photos

I first went to Paris for 2 days as part of my Benelux trip in 2005. I returned in 2007 for a more thorough visit as part of a generalized trip to France. It is truly one of the great cities of the world. It is in the same category as New York, London and Rome.

The city is very large and has much to see and do. It is the second largest city in Europe after London. And with a history that dates back to Roman Times, several days are needed to really do the city justice, with its wealth of museums, monuments and historic sites. And of course, its food and entertainment.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:One of the Great Cities of the World
  • Cons:None
  • In a nutshell:Needs at least several days
  • Last visit to Paris: May 2005

    Hello Stephen, I see from your tips that we where on the same path in Paris. Quite good the renovated "Orangerie".

    Glad you included a tip on the Marais district. I used to live there (a long time ago) and enjoy going back.

    Steve, Wish I could spring for a meal at le Cinq, but will have to be satisfied with leTastevin. The photo of Paris looks exactly like it has been looking these last few days. Looking forward to the rest of your tips and photos.

    Sounds like you saw almost all the highlights - but there is much more to discover - better start planning your return visit ; )
