21 Feb Getaway to Paris
A weekend in Paris
Don’t wait for vacations to get away! As a couple, with friends or alone, Paris is always a good idea for a improvised weekend.
Each district has its charm, its character and its cultural treasures. During a weekend, you will appreciate the City of Light for its many restaurants, bars and art galleries.
Take the time to stroll through the Latin Quarter and stroll through the bookstores on the banks of the Seine to enjoy the sweetness of this historic district. Located in the very elegant 6th district of Paris, Saint-germain-des-Prés has always been the district of art and literature lovers. If you cannot visit Notre-Dame de Paris, you can go up the Boulevard Saint-Germain to discover the oldest Church in Paris: the Church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés (1163).
To make the most of your weekend in Paris, make the most of your Sunday by taking a walk through the Marais district (district 3). This fashion district with the appearance of a historic town is one of the oldest in Paris and remains very lively, even on Sundays, when most of its stores remain open there. You won’t be able to resist shopping at BHV department stores, a fashion and design mecca, or a gourmet break in one of its many bakeries or food stores. The Marais district also houses a number of art galleries and museums, including the European House of Photography. To continue your discovery of the district, you can go to the Place des Vosges, one of the oldest royal squares in Paris.
