How to Plan a Trip to Paris | 11 Top Tips

There’s plenty to see and do in this wonderful city with iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Palace of Versailles, and more.

I’ve created this step-by-step guide to make the planning process as stress-free as possible. I’ve even thrown in a quick 5-day itinerary to act as a guide for the best things to see and do in Paris.

Personally, I enjoy Paris the most in April/May and September/October. There are generally fewer tourists, more locals and the weather is usually quite good.
