Reasons to visit:

Photo ops: Take pictures in front of the Eiffel Tower, the stately Arc de Triomphe, the tourist-laden Champs-Elysees, and the majestic Sacre-Coeur. For a nice overview of city vistas, hop on one of the Bateaux Mouches (motorboats that tour Paris via the Seine).

Shopping: Top designer shops dot avenue Montaigne, rue du Faubourg-St-Honore, and Place des Victoires. Head toward Place Vendome for jewelry, the area around St-Germain-des-Prés for specialty boutiques, and Les Halles for trendy threads. Grands magasins (department stores) near the opera house include Galerie Lafayette and Au Printemps. Memorize these words: soldes ("sale" -- January and August are the best months), tout doit disparaitre ("everything must go"), and coin des affaires ("bargain area").

Works of art: Must-see museums include the Louvre (once a fortress, now a sprawling museum), the Orsay Museum (which includes an excellent Impressionist collection, Art Nouveau furniture, and a Belle Epoque restaurant), the whimsical Pompidou Center (home to the Modern Art Museum), the Picasso Museum, and the Rodin Museum. Gain entree to 70 museums and sites -- and go to the front of the line! -- with a Carte Musees et Monument (museum pass) available at museums, the tourist office, and major Metro stations.
