The best way to see Paris is undoubtedly on foot. Instead of sitting through traffic jams on the roof of a cramped bus, walking along the banks of the Seine and through the royal gardens and squares is a way to experience the very best of Europe’s most visited city. Some of it’s most famous locations – such as Notre Dame, The Louvre and the Musee D’Orsay – are accessible on foot within a comfortable 2 and a half hours.
