The Eiffel Tower is magnificent in real life, especially since with modern technology, it now sparkles every hour on the hour. The Louvre is more than a mere museumit's a treasure trove that can instill art appreciation in even the most casual visitor. The Musée d'Orsay is also recommended, as is Tuileries Gardens and L'Orangerie Museum tucked away within it. For big brand names and see-and-be-seen restaurants, hit the Champs-Elysees; for top couturiers, it's Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. If you have time for a day trip out of the city, take the train to Palace of Versailles... or, for family fun, opt for Disneyland Paris and outlet shopping on the way.
