Due to over-crowding in tourist resorts such as the Mediterranean coast and the ski resorts the school holiday dates in France are staggered by dividing the country into three zones.
Holidays are divided into three separate zones except for the first two French school holidays of the academic year: All Saints and the Christmas / New Year holiday.Must See Places in Paris:
Just thinking about all there is to do in Paris: the Eiffel tower, the Louvre, a walk down the Champs-Élysées or by the Seine, the hill of Montmartre, the food, the shopping... it seems like too much to do in just two days.
Sadly, not all travelers are fortunate around to visit the city of light at a leisurely pace, but two days is more than enough to get a good impression and long-lasting memories of Paris, and all it has to offer.
The Eiffel Tower, bien sûr! The long lines of people waiting to go up can be a bit disheartening, so... why don't you skip them? You can book your tickets online and print them out months ahead of time through the monument's official website.
A walk along the Seine. Or better yet, how about a boat ride? If you are traveling with someone special, it's just as romantic.
There are many companies offering the rides on the famous bateau mouche, from which you will enjoy the Seine and its scenery: the Eiffel tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame cathedral, Île de la Cité.
Visit The Louvre.
This world-famous museum holds many secrets, one of them being that the best way to beat the crowds and enjoy a thorough yet quick visit is to simply get a map of its interior before arriving.
You might have heard that one can spend days at the Louvre and not see it all, but if you know exactly what you want to see beforehand, you will save a lot of time walking idly through its crowded rooms by simply planning your route beforehand.
From guided tours with a group to private romantic dinners, you can book them all online ahead of time!
