Top sights in Paris
The Paris neighborhood of Montmartre is famous for its bohemian flair, and many of its cultural offerings shape the city. It's a great place to relax and take in some art - what are some places you shouldn't miss?
Paris' most famous basilica was completed in 1914 and shines like a beacon. After you've climbed its white steps, it will give you a breathtaking view across the city!
This collection of sculptures and paintings is the only permanent Dali exhibition in France. It's really popular though, so get your skip-the-line ticket!
Not just a movie, Moulin Rouge is a legendary place you can visit - why not book dinner for two with a raunchy show there?
Visit the Wall of Love in the Jehan Rictus garden in the world's most romantic city! Made of molten lava, it's covered with the phrase "I love you" in over 300 different languages.
The street life along this canal summarizes the Parisian lifestyle - leisurely strolls and afternoons spent sitting outside at cafés, sampling world-class food.
Unfortunately, Paris' status as a world-class tourist city means it's also rife with pickpockets. Keep valuables stashed away deep inside a bag - especially on the metro - and don't flash them around at night.
While nobody's expecting you to master French before you arrive, learning some basic words here and there will get you places and cause locals to look at you favorably!
If you're keen to dine at a certain restaurant, reserve in advance to avoid disappointment - and remember that the French tend to eat dinner a bit later than Americans, around 7:00PM.
You don't want to spend your vacation standing around, do you? If you have your sights set on one or two major museums, score yourself a skip-the-line ticket for priority entry.

What people are saying about Montmartre
My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable one-hour tour of the Montmartre area with Severine Cortines as our Expert Guide. She was informative, highly engaging, and very funny! We got introduced to the ancient history of Sacre Coeur and Montmartre, as well as getting entertaining glimpses and anecdotes about events, houses, and colorful persons from more recent history. Highly recommended!
All one could require from a guide. Had Really good time and also good tipps from Dawie.
Caroline, the manager at "Retro Tour" was very helpful and supported to set the ride to a sunny day - basis of 'joyride' on motorbike. Christophe was punctually waiting for us on Concorde at gate to Tuilleries garden. The motorbike was great, a 750 ccm beast, with comfy sidecar, suitable even for non-experienced people. Christophe asked, whether we prefer speedy ride, we choose soft version, it was impressing even so. The route is well elaborated, concentrating on known places and 40 minute is good enough. During the ride is difficult to give long explanations - Christophe was ready to do it - best to enjoy the views of Paris, the breeze, the speed!
The guide was nice and had experience. Could have taken a little longer in the historical/interesting places to take pictures. This is the only item that I think needs to be improved - especially in the narrow and steep streets of Montmartre, wich means we will not go back to the photos.
Eric our guide was amazing in his knowledge and his fun demeanor. Every detail of the three hour tour was as packed w information about food and Monmarte as our bellies were fed with the absolute best French pastries (sweet and savory). The last hour is a relaxed sit down lunch with scrumptious wine cheese and charcuterie. The tour ended at Sacre Couer with a breathtaking view of the cathedral and Paris. Don’t miss it but do request Eric.
