Planet Knowledge, the Documentaries On Demand TV Channel, have teamed up with Eurostar to offer Silversurfers a chance to win 2 pairs of Standard Premier return tickets to visit PARIS in this fabulous PRIZE DRAW!
There’s a generous two-bag luggage allowance and a convenient 30-minute check-in so you can travel in style and comfort from the centre of London to the heart of beautiful Paris with no long or pricey airport transfers. Just sit back and relax in spacious seats and enjoy a light meal with hot and cold drinks served at your seat.
Not known as the “City of Love” for nothing, romance is indeed everywhere – on the bridges of the Seine, on the steps of the Sacre-Cœur at sunset and in sunny street cafes, so watch out, you might just find yourself falling in love with Paris itself.
If sightseeing is top of your agenda you should start with Paris’s most famous landmark of all, the elegant Eiffel Tower. Views from the top are spectacular, with the whole city laid out before you.
Planet Knowledge recommends a dose of culture, so why not hit the Louvre Museum with its futuristic glass pyramid in the central courtyard. Then, head over to the Musee d’Orsay, housed in a former train station, the stunning building itself is worth a visit (and you can get 2 for 1 entry with your Eurostar ticket).
Now your cultural appetite is appeased are you ready to hit the shops in Paris? For a glimpse of the world of the Paris fashionista check out the Galeries Lafayette, or just wander down the ultra-chic Rue St Honoré.
When you’re all shopped out stroll over to the Latin Quarter to see the grand old university buildings of the Sorbonne and browse the art galleries, cafes and restaurants of Boulevard Saint Germain. Just across the bridge you’ll see the flying buttresses of Notre Dame and its host of gurning gargoyles.
While you’re wandering along the river Seine, stop off at the Pont des Arts, the wooden bridge by the Louvre. By day there are hoards of tourists, but at sunset the Parisians come out. Bring a picnic and enjoy the sunset over the river as you nibble on your baguette with ham and cheese, washed down with a good bottle of wine.
