A weekend in Paris is always a little frustrating and a week is not easy to fit into your schedule. Thus, a long weekend is a great alternative to holidays to take a well-deserved break. In three or four days in the City, you will be able to taste a wide range of pleasures offered by the City of Light: culture, gastronomy, shopping, … Whether you are embarking on this journey alone, with your partner, or with your family, one thing is sure, you will not regret it.


Paris is full of museums and there is something for everyone. The best known being the Louvre Museum, the Orsay Museum or the Quai Branly, you can also choose smaller ones that are just as interesting. The Nissim de Camondo Museum is a private mansion located in the 8th arrondissement. We appreciate its amazingly rich permanent collection, the building itself which faces the Parc Monceau and the history of the family. The Musée de la Préfecture de Police will teach you a lot about judicial history, with major police cases and scientific advances. Finally, the Maison de Victor Hugo is a little gem of the Place des Vosges which transports us to the life of the writer.


On the cultural side, you can also go to major temporary exhibitions, vernissages in the rue des Beaux-Arts, or even stroll in the bookstores of the Latin Quarter. A stroll in the historic Paris of the 5th arrondissement, the 6th also and the Ile de la Cité is essential. For gourmets, you will have the choice between a multitude of quality restaurants. Traditional Parisian brasseries, gourmet or bistronomic tables, do not hesitate to ask your hotel for advice.


Looking for a green setting in the Capital? Meet at the Open Air Sculpture Museum along the Seine River, at the Jardin des Plantes to discover the large greenhouses or at the Luxembourg Gardens and its Parisian atmosphere.
