Why Work in Paris?
The amazing, diverse, beautiful capital city of Paris has so much to offer for people who decide they want to live and work in France! It’s the biggest city in France and is full of culture, history, restaurants, bars, and, of course, some great night life. It’s almost impossible to be bored here. Fancy seeing some of the most famous works of art in the entire world? You can go to the Louvre or one of the other dozens of art galleries in the city. Want to get a crêpe at 1 a.m? You can do that basically anywhere. Want to go to a massive cinema? An old-quarry turned into a beautiful park? Go up the actual Eiffel Tower? See an opera? You get the idea. Living in Paris gives you a countless world of possibilities right on your doorstep.
Let’s talk a bit about one of the most famous cities in the world – it’s more than just the Eiffel Tower!
Things To Do in Paris
La Tour Eiffel
Ok, so we know this is a really obvious thing to point out, and that we just said this city is more than the Eiffel Tower, but at some point while you’re in Paris you really do have to go and see it. Going to see it in person will fill you up with all kinds of wonder, and you will really, truly, feel like you’re in France when you’re standing by it. Or like you’re in a French film. You can go up it to get an amazing view of the city or go to Trocadero to get a beautiful view of the tower itself. And here’s a top tip from us: if you go at twilight, you’ll be able to see the tower in the daylight, as the sun sets, and in the dark when it’s all lit up like a Christmas tree. Plus, it sparkles on the hour, every hour, so don’t miss it! Here’s the official site for the Eiffel Tower where you can find out more.
Arc de Triomphe
Ok, so yes this is another obvious one. But the great thing about the Arc de Triomphe is that it’s not just something beautiful to look at from the Champs Elysées, but you can actually walk right up to the top of it and get a great view of the city which includes the Eiffel Tower (because obviously if you go up the Eiffel Tower… you won’t see it in the view). Plus, going up to the top of it is free for students! And then you can have a wonder down the Champs Elysées afterwards. Sounds like a good day out to me! Here’s the official site for the Arc de Triomphe.
Jardin des Tuileries
This is without a doubt one of the most impressive parks in Paris. It’s right in the centre of the city, and not only is it home to three of the most important museums in Paris, the Louvre, the Jeu de Paume and the Orangerie, but is also the oldest garden in Paris. And it’s really pretty. Like, really pretty to look at. Walking along the main path for a stunning view of a park filled with ponds, beautiful fountains and pathways you cannot help but feel peaceful surrounded by the beauty that the Jardin des Tuileries has to offer. And that can sometimes be a great break from all of the buildings and architecture that fill up the city! Want to find out more about the Jardin de Tuileries? Have a look here.
Parc des Buttes-Chaumont
Fancy something a bit more wild and free than the ornate Tuileries? Why not head to Buttes-Chaumont, which is not like any of the other Parisian green spaces. It’s a quarry-turned-park which has become a totally charming blend of informal and beautiful, right in the middle of the 19th arrondissement, in the heart of Belleville.
It’s got a lake, a waterfall, loads of hills, little paths, woodland areas, bridges, ducks, and a high viewpoint with a temple on it. Plus, a few little coffee places so can have a break from all of those hills. Find its opening times here.
Walk through the Passage du Grand Cerf to Rue Montorgueil
This is not as much of a thrilling sight to see but we believe it’s one of Paris’ best kept secrets from newcomers. The Passage is a gorgeous 19th century covered arcade with a glass roof and some pretty little lights over the ceiling, and when you walk through it you can see its many cute little boutiques. And this is the extra part: when you come out of the other side you end up almost right on Rue Montorgueil, an amazing street brimming with busy bars and restaurants.
L’Atelier des Lumières
Now this is an unconventional art gallery. It’s a beautiful exhibition in the dark of various famous paintings and works of art projected all over the walls, lighting up the room with floor to ceiling beauty. And if you have a wander around it you might find yourself in one of the beautiful mirror rooms, which give the illusion that you’re in an infinite space. It really is as cool as it sounds. Here’s the official site where you can find out more and get tickets.
Le Centre Pompidou
Speaking of unconventional art galleries, why not go and see the most interesting, unique looking building in Paris? This amazing and enormous gallery right in the centre of Paris is a huge collection of modern and contemporary art, with hundreds and hundreds of things to look at from Yves Klein to Matisse to Picasso.
Even the building itself is a marvel to look at, created as a result of an international architecture competition for the design of the building, which is all sort of inside-out looking, but extremely impressive. Plus, even simply going up the escalator to get to some of the exhibition will have you looking out over the marvellous view of Paris that slowly appears as go up and up. Fancy knowing more about the history of the Pompidou? Read more here.
The Latin Quarter, which used to be the Roman settlement in Paris during their occupation of the city, is the oldest and arguable most chic area of Paris, full of cobbles little streets and quaint cafés. It also used to be the student and intellectual hub of Paris because of the number of universities and institutes in the area, and it’s still home to the most famous university in Paris, the Sorbonne.
Nowadays, the Latin Quarter is a popular tourist spot, with many restaurants and bookshops, and not too far away this includes the world famous “Shakespeare and Company”, the English bookshop by the Seine frequented by some of the most famous writers in history: Joyce, Hemingway, Stein, Fitzgerald, Eliot, Pound to name a few.
Sacré Coeur & Montmartre
The very official title of the Sacré-Coeur is La Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre but that’s really long, so nobody calls it that and it’s more commonly known as the Sacré Coeur. It’s a church and basilica at the highest point in Paris on top of an enormous hill and gives arguably the very best view of the city. If you want to know more about the Sacré Coeur, head over to this site.
And after having been to the beautiful church and having seen the beautiful view you can go for a wander around the area which is outrageously Parisian. Try having a look at La Place du Tertre, a square where local artists set up their easels every day to paint portraits for tourists, surrounded by even more cafés and restaurants. And then you can continue to wander (or flâner as the French would say) around the cobbled streets of Montmartre and follow the footsteps of generations of artists and film stars, and feel like you yourself are in Amélie. You can even go and visit Amélie’s café, Café des deux Moulins, if you really want. Or just flâner around this amazing district.
How can we possibly even give you a list of things to do in Paris that comes close to covering it all?
The short answer is: we can’t. We’d be here for hours. Days, even. The list of things to do in Paris is endless, and you’ll find yourself living here and noting down all the things you see and decide you want to do just when you’re walking around the city, but we’ve given you a few good things to start with and cute neighbourhoods to explore.
Living in Paris is an unforgettable thing, and you can do it too!
