As long as the weather is OK, Paris is a great city for wandering through: and what better way to soak in the atmosphere of a city than to walk through its old streets, and through its famous sites.
And if you're into running, take a look at Runparis.fr, which offers free guided running tours of the French capital Stop to admire, enjoy the atmosphere, stop off for a coffee or a drink, visit the free monuments on your route - from the outside or the inside - and each of these four Paris walks can take a full morning or a full afternoon.
The Carroussel arch is topped by a nineteenth-century replica of the Quadriga, or Horses of Saint Marks, the finest Roman equestian bronze statues, which used to adorn St.
Mark's cathedral in Venice, until they were removed to a museum to protect them from atmospheric pollution.
Enjoy the experience of the Louvre from the outside.
Wander through the main courtyard of the Louvre and view the glass pyramid close up.
But portrait or no portrait, Montmartre is worth a visit for the atmosphere.
Enjoy the Champ de Mars, and admire the Eiffel Tower from below; or wander in the Jardins du Luxembourg, a very popular park in the Latin quarter Walking is free !
Following the visit to Paris in 2014 by the Queen of Britain, the Paris Flower Market has been renamed "Marché au fleurs reine Elizabeth II". River banks are popular places for a stroll, and les "quais", the banks of the Seine in Paris, are among the world's most famous riverside embankments.
Located on the Ile de la Cité, near the Pont Neuf, Paris's famous flower market is a small haven of flowers and plants, where Parisians have for centuries come to find plants and flowers to decorate their apartments. Starting from Notre Dame, wander along the banks of the river either upstream, to the Ile Saint Louis, or downstream to the pedestrian Pont des Arts bridge, and beyond.
Beside the Sacré Coeur, the old "village" of Montmartre, with its narrow streets and square, throngs with artists studios, street artists, cafés and restaurants.
Though some of the artists will do you a decent portrait, there are also many scam artists; if you want to have your portrait done, prefer the more sedentary artists on the square, la Place du Tertre, who will sit you down on a chair, to the mobile artists who accost people in the street.
This magnificent tree-lined boulevard runs 1900 metres (just over a mile) from the Place de la Concorde to the Place charles de Gaulle, or Place de l'Etoile, in the middle of which stands the great Arc de Triomphe, or Triumphal Arch, erected in the 19th century to commemorate the victories of Napoleon.
