Synonymous with romance and affairs of the heart, those planning a trip to Paris often do so with thoughts of love and passion in mind. The ultimate city for a romantic weekend, Paris is certainly the ideal spot for lovers, and with good reason.
Going to Paris has never been so easy – especially with the construction of the Euro-Tunnel. Introducing a new level of competition with ferry services and airports, the tunnel has made the English Channel crossable in more ways than we could have ever imagined and that means travelling across France is easier than ever before.
Leaving your car at home
However you decide to get to Paris, it often proves cheaper and far less hassle to leave your car back on home soil. This doesn’t necessarily mean forgoing the benefits of your own transport entirely though, with car hire in Paris the perfect compromise. With a full range of cars at your disposal through our fantastic hire options, you could even select a model set up for right-hand drive.
Those still concerned about finding their feet when it comes to driving on the right (or should that be wrong?) side of the road can also take advantage of our fantastic chauffeur driven car hire in Paris. We had a dedicated call centre open at all times to handle enquiries on this so you can get the answers you need when you need them.
Driving in Paris via our chauffeur service is perhaps the easiest and most convenient option for those unfamiliar with French roads and all of our drivers are thoroughly checked to ensure you get a high quality service.
Not only does this option give you the luxurious feeling of being driven around one of Europe’s most famous cities but you’ll also have chance to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the iconic landscape without having to worry about remembering different rules of the road.
What to do?
Rich in culture, Paris is a culinary paradise full of different types of food: from Algerian to Indian; Russian to Vietnamese. Many people would find it quite impossible to go to France without sampling wine from their hundreds of vineyards. Cotes de Rhone, Bordeaux and Chinon are all fine wines you can expect to find served in most bistros, restaurants and bars.
In terms of historical attractions, what can be more romantic than visiting such historically rich landmarks as the Arc de Triomphe or the famous Bastille? Le Marais is a district of Paris which is home to some of the oldest architecture the city has to offer and has been beautifully preserved.
Avenue Montaigne is where some of the world’s finest brand labels are housed and for those with an interest in fashion there will be plenty of luxury items to keep you happy. If art and culture is your thing, you won’t want to miss the Montparnasse district with its art studios and music halls.
Of course, no romantic getaway to Paris would be complete without a glimpse of the remarkable and breath-taking Eiffel Tower – especially when seen lit-up at night. In order to make sure you don’t miss a thing, be sure to plan your journey in advance so you can squeeze as much in as possible.
