Paris needs no introduction. It’s synonymous with food, culture, fashion, and architecture, rarely disappointing those who visit. Despite being the dream destination for millions of people each year, the French capital still has plenty of hidden secrets to offer beyond the Eiffel Tower and its world-class museums. People from all over the world are drawn to its cutting-edge fashion, art, and culinary scenes, as well as a certain je ne sais quoi that appeals to all kinds. While the attractions are plentiful on any Paris trip, this is an insider's city, steeped in a rich history of riots and revolutions. Every quarter is unique and, though the summer is the most popular season to visit, each time of year is compelling in its own way.
The ever-expanding metro and RER train systems transport Parisians just about anywhere they want to go. It’s cheap and efficient; a single ticket costs $2 and day passes start at $14. Taxis and buses are also easily accessible, but locals will walk or grab a Vélib bicycle if they don’t have far to go.
