The city centre is surprisingly compact and everything is within small walking distances. A good way to introduce Paris is to take a cruise on the River Seine or ascend the Eiffel Tower and take in a sweeping view of the city. There are too many to see in Paris.
The romantic ones should not miss the mansions of the Marais district and Place des Vosges, that was home to the Maison de Victor Hugo. Those ones interested in modern art and design should head to the Centre Georges Pompidou, Jean Nouvel's Institut du Monde Arabe, or the Grande Arche de la Défense to view the breathtaking views of Paris from its high-speed glass lift.
The Grande Arche, which lies along the same geographical axis as Napoleon's Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées, was built a century and a half later. This incongruity (the modern city juxtaposed with the old) is all part of the charm of Paris.
There are plenty of museums in Paris, ranging from the vast collections of the Louvre to the small and quirky - such as the Musée des Arts Forains.
Discovering something new, such as the rejuvenated Bercy district with its green spaces and popular bars or Belleville, with its cosmopolitan and ethnic restaurants. Paris Plage is very popular as well in the summer when were the citizens relax by the world of sand and deckchairs.
