With a flight time of only one to two hours from UK airports, city breaks in Paris are eternally popular with visitors looking for a dose of art, culture, history, striking architecture, fashion, flair, a delightful café scene and some of the world's finest food.
An excellent network of underground public transport, including the Paris Metro, complements the fact that central Paris is compact and easy to navigate on foot. This means that nothing is ever far away in Paris, including: designer shopping (think Chanel, Dior, Gautier, Lanvin, and Louis Vuitton), rousing museums (Musee d'Orsay, the Louvre), fun on the river (take a tour on the glass-covered riverboats known as the Bateaux Mouche), and the legendary Fauchon food shop in Place de la Madeleine.
You can fly into Paris and arrive at the airports of Paris - Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Paris - Orly (ORY), or Beauvais (BVA). Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports are close to the city centre, while Beauvais is 50 miles north of Paris. The Eurostar from London is another popular choice for visitors to Paris with a journey of around two hours.
Paris hotels are available to suit the romantics, the art lovers, the fashionistas, and the history buffs, and there is a wide range of accommodation across the price scale - from hostels and budget hotels tucked away on the upper floors of old buildings, to the grand luxury hotels that will wow with their opulence and discreet service.
