For centuries people have been trying to figure out what in the world the Mona Lisa is smiling at, but no one seems to know. You probably won’t be able to answer that either, but it’s worth a shot when you visit the Louvre Museum during your holiday in Paris. There’s more to this museum than just a seductive smile—check out the weirdly sexy Venus de Milo statue.
If you’ve had enough of all the lovey-dovey artsy stuff, venture below the city streets and explore the literal underbelly of the city in the Catacombs of Paris. Try not to lose your head while exploring the twisting tunnels of these ancient crypts. Nothing like spending France holidays thousands of old skulls.
Did you say shopping? Well, you’ve come to the right place because this city is loaded with it. One of the best known streets for dropping money is Rue de Rivoli. This street houses some of the biggest brand name stores in the world, all waiting for you to shell out French francs. If you’d like to experience even more fine shopping, book one of lastminute.com.au’s great Paris car hire options and drive over to the Tuileries District to keep emptying your wallet.
We hope you’re hungry during your Paris holiday, because not only is this place a centre of fashion, the food here is mind-blowing good. It shouldn’t come as a surprise since many of the world’s best chefs have restaurants in the city. Start your day off with some tartines and a freshly pressed cup of coffee. For lunch, treat yourself to a perfectly made ham and cheese baguette with a glass of wine. For dinner, sit down for a delicious meal of foi gras with a bottle of wine. Top off this tasty day with crème brulee.
Has the crème brulee and foi gras settled nicely in your stomach? Good, because after all that food it’s time for you to let loose in the club. Make your way over to the Latin Quarter. Next to all the cafes and bistros sit bumping nightclubs and mellow bars. If you’re taste of music tilts towards jazz you’re in luck, because there’s a number of venues in the neighbourhood catering to that very music.
What’s next? We hope that’s not a serious question because what’s next is searching lastminute.com.au’s best offers on Paris holiday packages so you can find love in a city that radiates it.

After a delayed arrival to the hotel, we had to wait in the ever growing queue for check in. There were only two staff on for the first half hour wait before finally they bought someone else on to man a third desk. The queue by this stage was well out the door. It took at least 45 mins for us to ...
