This iconic basilica sits at the top of the Montmartre hill and provides amazing city views from its steps. The place is alive with travellers making their ascent to the Sacré-Coeur and vibrant street art that lines the pavements.
Days Out in Paris
Hop on a train from Paris’ Gare du Nord, and you’re on your way to every child’s dream day out. Test out your lungs on a winding, looping rollercoaster or spot your favourite character at the Main Street parade.
Float your way around Paris on the Batobus –a glass-covered sightseeing boat that motors up and down the River Seine – and tick these sites off of your list: the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées, Orsay Museum, Louvre, St-Germain-des-Prés and Notre Dame.
Chantilly is home to the largest racehorse-training community in France. If you fancy a flutter, try a day out at Hippodrome de Chantilly, the area’s premier racecourse. If you don’t fancy your chances, why not explore the fascinating Musée Vivant du Cheval, a museum dedicated to equine art and culture.
