Welcome to Paris
Paris is one of the most alluring cities in the world. For centuries penniless artists and writers have flocked to the banks of the Seine to soak in the atmosphere of the 'City of Lights'. Now travellers can book cheap flights to Paris with Condor. The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Moulin Rouge cabaret are just a few of the world-famous attractions that make Paris one of the most visited cities worldwide.
However, Paris' allure is not so much the individual sights, but the sum of its parts. With a central historic core that remained largely intact during World War II and a vibrant artistic scene, Paris is undoubtedly romantic. Book a cheap flight, taste top-class French cuisine, drink fine wines and then stroll along the glittering Seine and see if you don't fall in love.
All Condor flights to Paris arrive at Charles de Gaulle airport. A train, which leaves every eight minutes, whisks visitors straight from their flight to the center of the city quickly and efficiently.
Taxis and hotel shuttle buses are also available, though traffic can make this a slower option. The center of Paris itself is easy to negotiate on foot or by metro. Some opt to use taxis, though walking is a great way to soak in the city's atmosphere.

Top Attractions in Paris
This 324m-high steel structure was initially temporarily erected for the 1889 World's Fair, but is now as recognizable as Big Ben or the Statue of Liberty. The whole of Paris is visible from the 3rd level observation platform, which is especially breathtaking at night.
Arc de Triomphe
A monument to French victories in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, this triumphal arch stands at the center of Place Charles de Gaulle, around which traffic flows in all directions. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is directly beneath the arch and invites reflection.
This treasure-trove of art and historical items is one of the most visited museums in the world. With more than 35,00 objects, including famous works such as the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo, it is easy to lose yourself for days in the Louvre – so much so you might risk missing your return flight!
The French are fiercely proud of their cuisine. A top-class meal of French onion soup, Escargot (snail) and succulent Coq au Vin, all washed down with a rich Bordeaux wine, is worth the price of a flight to Paris alone.
Perhaps not the oldest attraction in Paris, but one of the largest (4800 acres) and most popular, this amusement park offers two separate themed areas, several hotels and golf courses for dad.
