Cultural activities in Paris
To make the most of your stay in Paris, try not to spread yourself too thin; select just the most attractive activities to you. In terms of museums, there is of course the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay or even the Musée du Quai Branly. You could even explore the Natural History Museum or the Pompidou Centre. Don't hesitate to try the Musée des Arts Forains, a collection of funfair objects, or the Museum of the History of Medicine, for a change from the usual tourist route. Climb up Montmartre hill and stroll around this authentic district. Then, head to the Jardin du Luxembourg to sit and read in peace and quiet and visit the nearby St. Sulpice Church, which houses unique works by Delacroix. Stop off at Notre Dame de Paris to relive the novel by Victor Hugo. Of course, you can then go to admire the Champs Elysées at night or the Arc de Triomphe all lit up. Don't forget to say hello to the immense iron structure that makes the Paris skyline immediately recognisable: the Eiffel Tower.
