Once you have caught Paris' most famous sights, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Louvre, make time for some of the more underground cultural gems. Take a stroll along the Seine before popping into the Musée d'Orsay. This striking one-time railway station houses the world's greatest collection of impressionist works, a movement synonymous with the effervescent Parisian culture. As the sun sets, meander through the exhibition rooms and sculpture-filled gardens of the Musée Rodin, noting the iconic 'The Thinker' along the way. Afterwards, dip into Paris' backstreets, which hide countless restaurants taking gastronomy to otherworldly levels. Why not explore the nightlife spots in the fashionable arrondissements of Le Marais or Pigalle, before winding up at surreal film director David Lynch's club, Silencio? If you can bring yourself to face the morning climb, the best place for sunrise views over the city is Montmartre's Sacré-Coer basilica. Round off your weekend trip with petit déjeuner at a nearby chic patisserie.
