Louvre and Les Halles

Place Vendome, Rue de la Paix, Rue de Rivoli and then the renowned Gardens of Palais Royal, Tuileries and Carrousel: too many amazing places to discern among. The Louvre Museum building is itself an authentic wonder and its collections so rich and complete to drive art lovers into a state of intimidation; moreover, it is so big you should dedicate weeks in visiting it: choose before entering what you wish to see

 
 

Paris special advices

Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Orly (for both of them, www.aeroportsdeparis.fr) are Paris major airports: they’re linked to the city by buses, trains or a combination of them. Taxis are available but expensive; beware of fake cabs and people offering you very low fares. Beauvais airport is mainly served by low-cost carriers.
RATP is the local public transportation company, managing buses and subways cheaply and efficiently. Travel cards from one to five days and for different zones (there are 9 of them) can be purchased at subway stations, airports and tourist information offices.
Be always aware of your belongings: though criminality is not a social evil, never let them unattended
