Things to Do in Paris
Art, history, architecture, fashion festivals, gourmet cuisines, scenic locales, luxurious shopping, we can go on and on and on about the sights and sounds that Paris has to offer and one still would not run out of places to see or things to do in this absolutely stunning French city. Even though it is a very tough job to narrow down and shortlist a few things that are a must do in this city, let’s take a look at some of the best things to do in Paris, from a whole lot that this city has to offer:
The Eiffel Tower: One of the most iconic wonders of the word, the Eiffel Tower has been the number one attraction of Paris, tempting visitors from all over the world to come and experience the sheer beauty of this architectural marvel. The Eiffel Tower means the same thing to Paris, what the Statue of Liberty means to New York or the Big Ben means to London, the ultimate iconic symbol of the land, worn like a badge of honour. Constructed by Gustave Eiffel in the nineteenth century, the tower was lit up to welcome the millennium. The display of lights was so gorgeous that now lights have been affixed permanently which are made to twinkle for duration of five minutes to mark every hour.
Notre Dame: The Notre Dame is as royal and regal as its name sounds. This cathedral is an architectural marvel and has witnessed many a ceremonies. From coronation of kings, to several prince and princes exchanging wedding vows, the altar of this cathedral is witness to a culturally rich history. Completed in the fourteenth century, this gorgeous cathedral suffered massive damage during the revolution and was then restored in the nineteenth century by architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc. The architecture instantly transports you to an ethereal world of Christianity, grandeur and gothic ways of life.
Palais-Royal Gardens: The Palais Royal Gardens are an area of Paris that offer lush green foliage, a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of the city. Earlier, the residence of royalty, these gardens are extremely beautiful and peaceful. It has flowerbeds, lines and lines of trees and also a water basin in the middle. These gardens are flanked by galleries on all sides. These are Montopensier Gallery in the west, Beaujolais Gallery in the north, Valois Gallery in the east and the Orleans Gallery in the south. Hidden behind the walls of the palace are a number of designer boutiques, of the like of Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs. One can shop here or grab a bite at the quaint cafes and restaurants that surround this area.
Though, these are some of the highlights of Parisian beauty, the beauty of Paris has earned it, its rightful place as one of the most beautiful and romantic cities of the world, so much so that many a couple even dreaming of tying the knot or at least having their honeymoon here! Paris is a beauty that must be experienced once in a lifetime at the very least!

Trip to SwitzerlandVery good trip and Superb itinerary by travel agent as well as I had not any problem regarding transport and trip throughout my Europe trip Travelling in Switzerland using SwissPass getting full of fun and Superb experience in my life
Trip to SwitzerlandWe undertook a 14 day trip covering Italy, Switzerland and France from 02 to 16 Oct 19. Right from discussion on iternary, suggesting suitable locations to visit as per our interest, booking of hotels and air tickets and vouchers for various visits, all was done in a very professional manner. The complete team was ever available in real time to resolve any issues that we had including during the trip My compliments to the entire team who made sure we had a great time. Look fwd to more such trips in future too.
Trip to SwitzerlandThe trip was well planned by Globus Holidays. They understood what we wanted, which is the most important part of planning a trip. It was a customized trip covering 3 countries and the planning was effective considering the tight schedule. Swati from Globus Holidays was really helpful before and during the trip. Always available on whatsapp or call, even after her office hours. It is a 4/5 star trip. 1 star lost because some aspects of the trip could have been corrected if the vouchers were booked a little early. Overall a good experience and will definitely recommend Globus Holidays to anyone.

Trip to EuropeTo start with Shailesh from shell and pearl holidays is very helpful .He answers to all queries at any point of time and listens to concerns .5 star for him. About the trip other than the hotel that they gave in Paris which was not at all upto the mark ( poor food and locality of the Novotel hotel) everything else wasvery good . Just hope that travel triangle and shell and pearl holidays will improve the hotel chosen for other trips . Amanterdam and nearby country side visit . Park plaza airport hotel in Amsterdam. Sunny and beautiful afternoon in the Bruges city centre.
Trip to EuropeFirst of all I want to thank Travel Masterz esp Arpita and Amit for making my honeymoon experience such a great one. Round the clock support was a big relief for the first time traveler to Europe like me. Very well planned trip, totally taking my requirements and budget into account. Travelled to 3 different cities in 3 different countries - Amsterdam, Belgium and Paris. Full support was provided for visa application. Before boarding the flight, everything was very well explained. All the hotels in which we stayed were really good esp the one in Paris. Special thanks to travel Masterz for the wonderful decoration and champagne surprise in Paris Hotel Room. Had the best time of my life.

Trip to BhutanOut trip was very enjoyable and satisfying. The only disappoint was not getting an accommodation in Paris and also the vehicle was changed in the last leg of our journey. The country is most beautiful and people are very hospitable and happy.We cherish our visit to Bhutan for long time to come. We can strongly recommend to our friends.
Trip to SwitzerlandWe went for our honeymoon trip to Greece arranged by Centaur vacations - Kusum, Anil and Rishab. It was an awesome trip. The services of this travel agency are excellent, although responses needs to be more improvised and proactive, but overall experience was great!! Thank you Rishab for all the suprises and complimentary services which made our honeymoon trip memorable. Rishab and Team were available 24*7 for all the doubts. Even today after the trip is completed Rishab is still helping for all the queries/documents required for claim settlement. Looking forward to have many more trips organised by Centaur Vacations. Thank-you so much kusum and Rishab for all the planning and making trip memorable.
Trip to EuropeWe just returned from our personally customised trip to Amsterdam, Belgium and Paris. We got to know about Holiday Aces through Travel Triangle. Without Holiday Aces and our wonderful tour planner Gaurav Arora, this trip would be incomplete. Entire team was really patient and understood that people from different cultures and background would have different preferences and tastes while travelling to countries. The whole team arranged everything properly as per our wish and guided us throughout our journey. Special credit to VISA process team who organised everything properly and helped us in getting the visa in a timely manner. Gaurav took extra effort to make sure that my husband and I enjoy this trip to the fullest. Everything was perfect and perfectly-arranged. We would recommend this tour service to everyone visiting any places in and around the world. The whole team listens to our requirements and plans accordingly. Kudos to you and your team Gaurav. Thanks for planning a memorable trip for my family.
