Pompidou Centre Paris - fascinating building and art collectionParis is divided into handy sections. Before heading off on your weekend break spend some time pouring over a map and you will find that the city is divided first into the Right and Left Banks, which lie north and south of the River Seine (with the Ile de la Cité and Ile St-Louis in between). The twenty arrondissements spiral out clockwise from the centre each with its own character and places of interest. It is true that on a city break you can almost navigate Paris by its monuments.

Louvre Museum Paris - top city break attraction You have the convenience of landmarks that can be seen for miles such as the Eiffel Tower, the Panthéon and Sacré Coeur, the pipes and tubes of the Centre Pompidou and the gilt of Les Invalides. Don’t miss a trip to the Louvre, at the heart of former royal Paris, or a chance to wander through the Tuileries and up the Champs-Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe. These are places that you really must see on your city break or short holiday. You can save money and time by purchasing your Paris Pass in advance.

However, on a Paris city break do not ignore the districts with their innate style and unique ambience to match the cosy geography of Paris. To the east you have the beautifully preserved historic Marais with its amazing architecture; to the north, the village like feel of sensational Montmartre. In the poorer north-eastern part of Paris, the tenements mix with public housing, but this area contains: the Père Lachaise cemetery – the resting place of the great and the good, the famous and the infamous; the romantic Buttes-Chaumont park; and La Villette science museum and concert hall.

Sacre-Coeur Paris, romantic holiday locationOn the Left Bank you will find a large number of stately academic institutions in the Latin Quarter amid historic medieval churches and Roman remains, head east to the ultra-modern Bibliothèque Nationale François Mitterrand. Head west for St-Germain with its array of cafes, boutiques and Faubourg St-Germain for the embassies, Les Invalides and of course, the Eiffel Tower. There is so much to explore one city break is never enough and once you have the Parisian bug you will return time and time again.
