Louvre, Paris

One of the world’s great cities hardly requires an introduction.

Paris shines for its culture, history, shopping, nightlife and landmarks that are etched in everyone’s minds.

A whistle-stop tour means packing in as many of those unmistakeable sights as possible, and has to include the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, a walk up through Montmartre to the Sacré-Cœur and a cruise on the Seine.

But that’s just for starters, and if you have a particular interest in French art or history you can give your curiosity free rein at countless museums around the capital.
