    Things to Do in Paris 

    • Climb the steps of Notre Dame to visit Quasimodo and the Gothic Gargoyles.
    • Explore the Latin Quarter, a bohemian area, popular with students for centuries. Here, you will find many coffee shops and bookstores, including the famous ‘Shakespeare and Co’ English bookstore.
    • See the French Can Can performed at the Moulin Rouge, Lido, Paradis Latin or one of several other Paris Cabaret Theatres.
    • Window shopping on the Champs Elysees and Rue De Rivoli is free! Be sure to do as the Parisians do and walk down the Champs Elysees, not up – so your nose is in the air and higher than those ‘tourists’ walking up the street!
    • Get a bird’s eye view of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
    • Culture Vultures can visit the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay or Pompidou Centre.
