Plan Here your Next Vacation to Cultural Paris

Paris is a wonderful capital city with something for everyone, regardless of age, gender or interests, and while it is very much associated with romantic breaks for couples, families and groups of friends can have an amazing time there too. It has many famous landmarks and is a place many people feel that they know quite a lot about before they even go, but there are some things many people forget to consider when they go to Paris. Planning ahead To ensure you have a great time, it is well worth planning ahead and being prepared. Although it initially might not seem like much fun having a schedule and your plans set out for each day, to get the best out of Paris and make sure you can see and do as much as you can in the time you’re there, you need to plan things out in advance. Part of your preparations should always include arranging some cheap travel insurance to make sure you’re covered for all eventualities. It’s also best to work out how much currency you will need and shop around for it before you go, as you’ll get a far better deal this way than if you have to exchange money at a tourist hotspot once you’re there.(Image by L.G.J) Free activities Everybody knows the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay, but it is also well worth making the most of all the free attractions that Paris has to offer (and there are plenty). Notre Dame Cathedral is a must-see, and is free besides optional extras such as a climb up the 387 steps to the top of the Cathedral Tower. The less well known but equally spectacular Sainte-Chapelle also offers free entry to all EU citizens under the age of 26, children on family visits and disabled people plus their care givers, which is worth bearing in mind.     For a relaxing picnic in the sunshine, you can’t beat the Jardin du Luxembourg with its spectacular formal gardens, beautifully kept lawns and orchards boasting a variety of different fruit. Other must-see attractions that cost nothing to visit include the Arc de Triomphe, the Place de la Concorde and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica. If sporting events are of interest freebies include the Tour de France finish and the Paris Marathon. Eating and drinking As with many popular tourist destinations, the best places for enjoying a meal and a glass of wine are a little off the beaten track. The best indicator of whether somewhere is worth eating is whether locals go there: if it’s full of tourists without a Parisian in sight, move...
