It's hard to know where to start when talking about Paris, but for some of the best views across the city, drag yourself to the 130 meter high district of Monmartre, to give yourself an idea of what's ahead of you or the nect few days. The area is famous for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacr Cœur and the plethora of nightclubs that populate Pigalle to the south.
A trip to Paris could never be complete without a visit to the Louvre. Anyone will agree that it’s an impressive place but like most internationally infamous exhibits, it’s overcrowded and over-protected by very eager security staff, so for a less busy alternative then head over to the Musee d’Orsay. The architecture of this old train station is equally grand to that of the Louvre and the collection includes an awe inspiring line up of Impressionist masterpieces.
Although it was never meant to be a permanent fixture to the Paris skyline, the Eiffel Tower is still one of the most visited attractions in Paris, head there in the evening for the beautiful light shows they put on.
St Christopher's Inn Hostel is in the coolest district in Paris. The building has been designed for you, with the traveler in mind. Be prepared for live music and long nights in the Belushi's Bar and Nightclub downstairs!
