The most famous tourist attraction in Paris, possibly even France is the Eiffel tower. Designed and built in 1889 by the French engineer Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower is one of Paris's largest landmarks and well worth making time on any short break to take a visit.

With hundreds of delightful cafes, bars, and restaurants you can sit back, relax and enjoy your short break to Paris with a quiet drink and a bite to eat. Alternatively you could take a stroll round some of Paris' shops.
Travel to Paris at the weekend and visit the Marché aux Puces de Clignancourt, Paris' world famous flee market, and grab yourself a bargain amongst its many antiques and vintage clothing. Alternatively visit the Le Bon Marché the fashion centre of Paris and heart of world fashion.
