Things To Do in Paris: A Weekend Itinerary

The Best Things to Do in Paris

Paris has been on my list to visit forever and it did not disappoint! J’adore Paris!

Despite living in London, and Paris being super close (2hrs via Eurostar) It took me over a year before I scheduled a trip. Iv outlined my itinerary below, highlighting the top things to do in Paris.

Travel: Eurostar from London St Pancreas to Paris Gare Du Nord

Accommodation: Hotel ibis Paris Gare du Nord

Weekend Guide to Paris

Day One

Head to the Montmartre District of Paris and spent the morning wandering the streets sampling Croissants , window shopping and marvelling at the beautiful buildings.

Montmartre is home to the famous Sacré-Cœur basilica and Moulin Rouge.

 

 

Sacré Cœur is located at the top of 270 steps, but trust me its worth the walk for spectacular view across Paris.

 

 

The top of any Paris agenda has to be the Eiffel Tower. I’d recommend taking a trip up to the top (don’t worry there’ s a lift!)

 

 

There is something magical about Paris.

 

 

I’ll admit I’m not usually a big fan of galleries and chose to skip a visit inside the Louvre.   Outside was impressive, especially at night.

There is no shortage of top class restaurants in Paris. Being the party lover I am, I ended up dancing the night away with a difference. The club was actually a boat that was docked on The Seine!

 

Day Two 

I spent the second day nursing a hangover exploring Champs-Élysées and visiting the Arc de Triomphe.

 

 

If you have a super sweet-tooth, Laduree is a must visit in Paris! You must sample the Macaroons and the Hot Chocolate it is heavenly. It’s the perfect place to cosy up on an Autumn afternoon!

 

 

The final tourist spot to visit is Notre Dame.

 

 

I would love to go back to Paris is Spring, and explore more of the city, including a day trip to Versailles. Any tips or must see places for my next visit?

Looking to visit more of Europe? See what I get up to in London, or how I spent two weeks in Barcelona, Rome & Lisbon.
