Walking, Paris: 22 reviews and 47 photos
I thought Paris was a great city to walk - the streets are charming and there is a lot to soak up that you would otherwise miss by taking the Metro everywhere. Get yourself a good map and go for a stroll (I prefer the Knopf pop-up mapguide books - they break up the city by section and provide detailed street-maps of each section so it is easy to get your bearings). It took me about 4 hours to walk from the Sorbonne to the Louvre, through the Tuileries to the Place de la Concorde, back across the Seine to the Eiffel Tower, across the Seine again to the Trocadero and up the Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe. It was a great way to see the city and I didn't feel so guilty when indulging in all the delicious bread, wine and pastries!
