Arguably the most romantic city in the world, Paris is the ideal place for couples both young and old to escape to for a weekend. Paris city breaks can be enjoyed whatever your budget. So whether you opt for a basic 2-star hotel or splash out on 5-star luxury, the famous sights of Paris can be enjoyed wherever you stay. Start your day people watching over croissants and coffee at a cafe, before discovering the city on foot - the designer shops and the Champs-Elysees. The Eiffel Tower is a must and so is the Arc de Triomphe. Before dinner take a romantic boat trip on the River Seine. Even if you only have a couple of days in Paris you can squeeze in a visit to the Louvre Museum or immerse yourself in the history of the French Revolution at the Palace of Versailles.
Where to book your city break to Paris
A great website which has a wealth of information about what to see and do in Paris is www.pariscitybreaks.org.uk. It has details of the many ways to travel to Paris, by plane, Eurostar or ferry. With budget hotels from £40 per night you can even book your Paris break with them.
If it's a special occasion, an anniversary, a birthday or even a proposal and you want to book somewhere luxurious then www.thomson.co.uk has city breaks to Paris staying in 5-star boutique hotels. A 2-night break from the 14th - 16th October at the Ampere, a 4-star hotel in the heart of Paris, costs £357 per person.
www.myparis.co.uk has Paris city breaks staying in both budget and boutique hotels. A 2-night holiday with breakfast at the 2-star Euro Sovereign St Denis hotel departing on the 29th November is only £95.57 per person. In contrast the 5-star Hotel Du Louvre, situated in the cultural district and right outside the picturesque Tuilleries Park costs £250.34 per person for 1 night, but it does include flights, and like Paris itself, the hotel oozes romance.
