Sights & Sounds
Packing everything into a single weekend in Paris is simply impossible, top of most lists would be the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral. However we'd also recommend you find time for a French café in Monmartre which is the artistic hub of this amazing city. But if you really want to let off some steam, get your skates on and join in Pari-Roller when hundreds of Parisians take to the streets on mass for an amazing spectacle.
One of the most famous entertainment venues in the world, as featured in the Nicole Kidman/Ewan McGregor movie, the Moulin Rouge (Red Windmill) is an evening you will simply never forget.
