Paris

Paris is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. 

There is so much to see in Paris and there is something to please everyone.

Here's a selection of photos taken by delegates at our 2018 Conference

Getting around

If you a return visitor to Paris, you will know how easy it is to get around on The Metro. 

They come every few minutes and are a good way to get places quickly (or if you have shopping to carry)

Buy a 'carnet' of 10 tickets to save money (you can share between passengers). Each ticket is valid for one ride. 

Even if you choose not to travel by train, The Louvre Rivoli station is worth a visit - it is like no train station you have ever seen!

 

Look for signs like these, to jump on a train. 

Walking

Paris is reasonably flat (except for the walk up to Montmatre) so great if you want to get your 10,000 steps in before the conference starts in the afternoon. 

You get a different perspective on the city on foot. 

However, you might want to jump on the Metro to cut some travel time if you want to see a lot in one day.

For those who like to be active, the Quais along the River Seine have now been closed to traffic so are great for a morning run, walk or cycle. 

If you get up early, you can get some wonderful photos of the city waking up like these ones we took during the 2018 conference

Eating in Paris

This is really akin to an Olympic sport.  There are so many options!! 

We have a few favourites:

Willi's Wine Bar 

great wine, food and art.  Menu often changes daily

L'Epi D'Or

a traditional french bistro which opened in 1880.

Don't judge it by its website...

 

Le Colimacon

be sure to have the Tarte Tatin

For something special, head to the Michelin Starred Helene Darozze

We recommend  booking on the app The Fork (La Fourchette)  (Android and iTunes). 

This overcomes the language barrier. 

Some places book out ahead, so don't be shy about booking in advance - just check the cancellation policy.
