Paris can be seen as a magical, timeless place where the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the hill of Montmartre are unchanged reminders of an extraordinary past.

In this beautifully illustrated planner, National Geographic travel experts provide itineraries to guide visitors along the streets of the Marais or the grands boulevards and lead them along the banks of the Seine or through the corridors of the Louvre. Throughout, find must-know tips, including the best way to visit the essential venues, myriad locals-only destinations, and planning advice from when to go to where to stay. This is the essential guide to Paris--its well-known treasures and hidden wonders.
