You could plan a thousand trips to the City of Lights and still have plenty left to see and do in the French capital. Whether you're a museum nut who dreams of seeing the Musee d'Orsay, the Louvre and the Centre Pompidou; an architecture fan interested in seeing Paris from the roof of the Arc de Triomphe, the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre or the Eiffel Tower; or simply an urban wanderer who revels in walking the streets of Île de la Cité, the Latin Quarter or the banks of the Seine river, you'll have it all at your fingertips. Grab a map, a metro card, and let yourself be swept up by the vibrant energy of the city. Short train rides will take you to Champagne tastings, Versailles, countryside castles, and the magical kingdom of Disneyland Paris.
While Paris sometimes feels like a caricature of its own romantic perfection, the real Paris doesn't start to become alive until you interact with it in person. Start by smiling back enigmatically at the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. Then assess the wide Napoleon-commissioned boulevards from atop the Eiffel Tower. Wander the streets (where you can appreciate Parisians' tax dollars at work on some of the cleanest streets of any city) past flower shops and fresh vegetable stands until you reach the Jardin du Luxembourg, where you can watch families sail model sailboats in the historic fountains. As one of the most dizzyingly dreamy cities in the world, Paris both lives up to and surpasses its clichés. Yes, people while away hours in cafes. No, Parisians do not seem to gain weight, no matter how much delicious French food they eat. Sure, your waiter might scoff if you say 'thank you' instead of 'merci,' but even this is starting to change. Paris is, gasp, modernizing. Gone are the smoke-filled restaurants (à fumée is outlawed in all public buildings) and perhaps soon, the 35-hour work week. But the romance will always stay.
