  • Perfect for us

    "The apartment was just as described. Very central and easy access to the metro and RER. Philippe answered our queries promptly and had a dependable friend available while he was away. The bed was very comfortable. The shower was a bit small, but adequate. The cupboards contained all the needed items and a few extras like salt & pepper, coffee filters, coffee, tea, etc. There were numerous books on Paris, as well as maps and guides. We had a great stay. Thanks."

  • Great location

    "Apartment is in a great location. The space is as it appears in photos but a bit worn. Overall, the apt. was fine and served our needs. The living space is spacious, has nice light coming in; the sleeping arrangements were fine for 4 adults, I think it would be tight for 6 adults. Upper bedroom would be good for small adult or child. Bedside lamps in room with twin beds were not working and not fixed or replaced when this was discovered. A number of lights were out; some bulbs were replaced while we were there. Not a big deal, but gives one a sense of things. Basic, serves the purpose, and compared to other places we could find in this neighborhood, it was more affordable. This is my first time renting an apt. in Paris, so unable to compare it. The neighborhood is great as others have mentioned. On a quiet street near more busy, commercial streets. Close to lots of sites; numerous Velib bike stations nearby; easy walk to many places; metro stops nearby. Our stay was a bit soured by repeated warnings prior to our arrival, after contract was signed, about making noise with threat of eviction if there was ANY noise. We had hoped to have a Thanksgiving meal and celebrate my husband's 70th birthday but this was forbidden due to concerns we would be too noisy. I understand the owner's concern but also think that we should be able to do normal things, such as a dinner with family. It was a bit ironic that we were wakened each morning by remodeling noise in neighboring apt. Recommend with reservations."

  • Great apartment in the Marais

    "We stayed in La Tour Des Bourgeois as a family of 5 and loved it. The apartment is as pretty as the photos show it, and the kitchen is fabulous. It was far more space than we'd hoped for in Paris. The location in the Marais is perfect - great neighborhood and just a few minutes walk to the main metro line covering the big tourist spots. Kristian was a great help showing us around the apartment. Our only two cautions for future renters: 1) the awesome location comes with the price of being right on a pretty lively and sometimes noisy street; and 2) the flat is not air conditioned - it was mostly fine for us in mid-June, but I think could be uncomfortable if the temperatures in Paris were 90 degrees F or worse."

Paris Travel Tips

Paris, the City of Lights and love, is a top vacation spot - and for good reason. The city is filled with amazing culture, from art galleries, museums, to gardens, parks, cuisine and everything in between.

No matter which season you choose to visit Paris, it will offer exquisite images of architecture, fashion, food, people and landscapes. Situated along the River Seine, this city provides the perfect getaway location for a romantic trip for two, a fun family adventure or a solo journey to relax and unwind.

Historic Paris landmarks

Eiffel Tower: A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete with a visit to Le Tour Eiffel. It was originally built in 1889 for the World Exhibition to commemorate the French Revolution in 1789. It was only supposed to stand during the exhibition, but it was left for travelers to enjoy through the years and has becomes synonymous with the city itself. The Eiffel Tower features three levels for visitors. The first two have restaurants for visitors. From each level, you can take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the city and the River Seine.

Louvre: This art museum is one of the largest and most prominent in all the world. The Louvre, located in the 1st arrondissement, houses some of the most important works of art to ever be created including Leonardo Da Vinci’s "Mona Lisa," the "Venus di Milo," the "Bike of Samothrake" and Michelangelo’s "Dying Slave.” The museum’s first collection were the private acquisitions of King Francis I in the 16th century. Since then, the Louvre has expanded and now features over one million works of art, 35,000 of which are displayed for the public throughout three wings (Denon, Sully and Richelieu) ranging in time periods from Antiquity to the 19th century. Enter through the Louvre Pyramid or the Carrousel du Louvre and experience one of the most cultural hubs in the world.

Notre Dame Cathedral: Whether or not you’re a religious person, Notre Dame Cathedral is a beautiful Parisian landmark worthy of a visit. Located on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement, the Notre Dame de Paris, which translates into “our lady of Paris” in French, is a Gothic cathedral that serves as the the city's Catholic archdiocese. Notre Dame is considered one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture and features flying buttresses, stained glass windows and menacing gargoyles. Notre Dame still holds masses, but also serves as a favorite tourist destination for all who come to Paris.

Jardin du Luxembourg: Originally owned by the Duke of Luxemburg who gave the garden its name, this piece of land stretches about 55 acres and is laid out in an Italian style per Marie De Medici, who purchased the land in 1612. In the 19th century, the garden was opened to the public and redesigned in a French style while still preserving the original layout. At the garden’s center rests the Grand Bassin, an octagonal pond where children can rent small boats to float around. The Jardin du Luxembourg also features pony rides, a puppet theater and a merry-go-round to keep the kids entertained. For the adults, the garden provides exceptional scenic views and the perfect backdrop for an afternoon picnic. The garden is also home to two famous fountains: Fountaine Medicis and Jardins de l’Observatoire.

Other Paris Must-sees

Champs-Élysées: The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Parisian street full of luxury, haute couture shops, cinemas, cafes and is considered of the the most famous roads in the world. The Champs-Élysées stretches from the Place de Charles de Gaulle, the location of the Arc de Triomphe, to the Place de la Concorde. For the height of Parisian culture, wander up and down the sidewalks of this famous promenade to experience all of the sights and sounds that make Paris one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Moulin Rouge: Located in the hilly neighborhood of Montmarte, the Moulin Rouge, “red mill,” opened in 1889 as a new music hall. It quickly became an infamous dance hall that made the Can-Can famous and was one of the first venues in the city to use electricity. The Moulin Rouge explored the scandalous side of life and shocked many at the time. Today, the Moulin Rouge is still a popular place to visit while exploring Montmarte. The Can-Can has been toned down but is still the signature dance of the place. Visitors are sure to be entertained by high kicks and amazing acrobatics. Shows feature more than 100 performers dressed in extravagant costumes, but are still not suitable for young eyes.

Opéra de Paris Garnier: Famously known as the setting for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical "The Phantom of the Opera," the Paris Opera House, or the Opéra de Paris Garnier, can be found in the 2nd arrondissement. Construction began in 1862, but wasn’t finished until 1875 because a small lake was discovered and still exists under the opera house. Currently, the building is used mainly for ballet performances and was renamed the Palais Opera. The Opéra de Paris Garnier boasts stunning architecture, with a grand marble staircase and foyer featuring a mosaic ceiling and numerous chandeliers.
