Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Make sure that you go up to the Basilica to see the views which get even better at night and if you want to go out at night head to the Opera district (Get off at the Hotel de Ville metro stop) as the atmosphere is fantastic and there is lots of bars and stuff to see!

Liked: We loved that you could walk everywhere easily and to get to the further places you could take the metro or the tram very easily. The Basilica is incredible especially the views and the minatures museum is a must see! Le parc de la tete d'or is just beautiful!

Disliked: The train station has lots of people asking for money and for food so maybe avoid eating your lunch inside the station while waiting for the train!
