The City of Light is one of the world’s greatest cities, full of wonderful buildings, famous sights, superb restaurants and matchless views. So whether you use the Eurocamp parcs here for a brief stopover or a complete holiday, you will never run out of things to see and do.
International Parc puts it all on your doorstep too, thanks to a superb location on an island in the Seine itself, with a local train nearby that takes you to the ideally located Gare du Nord. From here you can simply stroll out along the streets of Paris, or even catch a direct train to Disneyland Paris, which takes about 40 minutes.
If you have never been here before, there are certain sights that fall into the ‘must-see’ category, notably the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. Thanks to the superb Metro underground system, and the Bateaux Mouches which ply the Seine, it is quite possible to see all of these iconic places in just a day...
However, Paris is also a great city for walking, and some of its greatest treasures give themselves up when you simply stroll from place to place. Montmartre is a great example of this, boasting an attractive square lined with pleasant cafés and full of artists who will paint your portrait, draw your caricature, or sell you views of the city in a variety of styles.
Then just a few short steps away, you will find yourself at Sacré Coeur. A magnificent church in its own right, the steps outside it are a popular spot for sitting in the sunshine with an ice cream and simply enjoying the views over the city. But wherever you wander, you will find that Paris rewards you at almost every turn.
As well as the capital Eurocamp have holiday parcs across France. See the campsites in France section.
One of the world’s most beautiful and romantic cities, Paris offers so much to do that a single visit here is never enough. While some of the sights are very familiar, few places on earth reward the visitor who is prepared to be a ‘tourist’ so well:
The hill that Montmartre sits upon has been a haven for artists for more than two centuries, and today makes the perfect place to shop for original art, or to have your portrait painted by the many artists that line its main square.
Announced by the vast glass pyramid at its entrance, the Louvre is everything an art gallery should be, and more. Home of every great objet d’art from the Venus de Milo to the Mona Lisa, it is simply unmissable, despite the frequent queues.
While it looks like a building that has been turned inside out, the Pompidou Centre is actually home to one of the great collections of modern art, and is considered by many to be a modern masterpiece in its own right.
Notre Dame Cathedral
A masterpiece of French Gothic architecture, Notre Dame is simply stunning. From the legendary gargoyles that gaze down from the roof to the magnificence of its interior, every detail is as imposing as it is possible to imagine.
The famous boats that cruise the Seine make a wonderful way to take in the many famous sights that line the river. Usually cruising for an hour and fifteen minutes, they also make a great place to enjoy your lunch as you soak up the sights.
Built for the Universal Exhibition in 1889 to mark the centenary of the French Revolution, this was meant to be a temporary structure. However, it remains as the most famous tower in the world, offering 45-mile views from its highest gallery.
Sitting atop one of the highest points in the city, this vast basilica lacks the grandeur of Notre Dame, yet is still one of the most enjoyable religious buildings you will ever see. It also adjoins Montmartre and offers fabulous city views from its steps.
The famous theatre with the red windmill sails was first immortalised by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in the early 1900s; yet a century later the wild cancan routines are as popular as ever and make for an essential experience.
Just a short train ride from the Gare du Nord, those camping in Paris will find every child’s dream day out. Home to a host of superb rides, massive parades, places to eat and favourite characters, you may find that a single day just isn’t enough.
Playmobil Fun Park
In the nearby Val de Marne, you will find the Playmobil Fun Park, which offers 12 themed areas full of Playmobil toys to enjoy. It also includes a special toddler area, making it a rainy day favourite for many families.
La Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie Museum
Lying in the 19th Arondissement, La Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie Museum is one of the biggest and most impressive of its kind in the world, offering a host of up-to-the-minute technological attractions.
Base Régionale de Plein Air et de Loisirs de Bois-Le-Roi
This 75 hectare park sits between the banks of the seine and the forest of Fontainbleau and offers facilities for horse-riding, golf, tennis, archery, windsurfing, canoeing and much more besides.
Base de Plein Air et de Loisirs, Le Port Aux Cerises
Within easy reach of central Paris, this large leisure complex offers tennis, crazy-golf and sailing. During the Summer, you can also enjoy a wave pool, pedal boats and canoeing.
There are five courses close to Paris, including the Jack Nicklaus-designed Paris International Golf Club, the demanding Golf National close to Versailles and of course the beautiful Golf de Chantilly, around 40 minutes to the North of Paris by car.
Every year since 2002, the city has transformed several locations on the banks of the Seine into fully-fledged beaches where you can sunbathe in the sand, swim in pools hung over the river and enjoy free evening concerts. A must-see attraction.
Rock en Seine
This three day rock festival towards the end of August on the lawns of the Domaine National du St-Cloud on the edge of the city attracts A-list acts from all modern musical genres. Not to be missed if you’re here at the right time.
Paris Air Show
Usually held in the middle of June at Le Bourget, this is one of the world’s greatest air shows as it is used by the aerospace industry worldwide to showcase their very finest technology.
Marked across France in Mid July, nowhere are the celebrations for the beginning of the French revolution quite so intense as in Paris. Go to the Place de la Bastille and the Champs Elysee for the best of the parades and ceremonies.
The cuisine of Paris is really the cuisine of all France. Yet these are the dishes most people consider to be trés Parisienne:
This tranquil and relaxing parc offers you delightful riverside pitches along the banks of the Seine, plus unsurpassed access to the many attractions of Paris.
