10 Things About Paris You Should Know Before You Visit

Hi! My name is Joanna and I'm the Head of Car Hire at Nova. I love travelling, dogs, classical music, reading, and making sure all our customers have the best car rental experience!

  1. Many museums, such as the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, and the Pompidou, are free on the first Sunday of the month, so if you’re planning on visiting them, it might be financially prudent to go during the first week of the month.
  2. 2. If you’re looking for a bargain, the Porte de Clingancourt in the North of the city is the most popular flea market. Officially known as Les Puces De Saint-Ouen, it is open on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays only.
  3. The River Seine attracts millions of visitors every year. Simply by walking along the banks, you’ll see some of the most beautiful parts of Paris. However, if you’d like see the city from a completely different perspective, take one of the many boat trips along its length in a bateaux-mouche.
  4. The most famous museum in Paris may be the Louvre, but you might be surprised to know that it isn’t the most popular. That distinction lies with the Musee d’Orsay. Located on the site of the former Orsay railway station, this Parisian institution features some of Paris’s finest art, including one of the best Monet collections in all of France, if not the world.
  5. A stroll through Montmartre is one of the best ways to see many of the most interesting sights in Paris. Once home to such famous artists as Picasso, Monet, and Van Gogh, it is now one of the most exclusive areas in the city, site of the Moulin Rouge and the Basilica Sacre-Coeur, as well as many authentically Parisian wine bars, cafes and restaurants. It even has its own vineyard - the Clos Montmartre Vineyard.
  6. Paris has some of the oldest botanical gardens and parks in the world. A good place to rest and watch the world go by. Jardin d’Acclimatation is one of the best.
  7. As you stroll around Paris, you might notice some street corners have two identical street name plaques. The reason for this is that bureaucrats decided the existing ones were at the wrong height. New ones were added at the ‘correct’ height, but the old ones weren’t removed.
  8. Parisian ‘haute couture’ was in fact invented by an Englishman. Charles Worth was a draper from Lincolnshire who, instead of making clothes to order, designed his own clothes and told customers that they were next season’s fashion.
  9. When it was built in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was considered an eyesore by many Parisians and slated for dismantling in 1909. It proved useful for communication purposes, however, and radio transmitters attached to the structure were pivotal to the Allied victory during the First World War.
  10. Ever wondered why only some of the entrances to Metro station are in Hector Guimard’s distinctive Art Nouveau style? That’s because many were destroyed or replaced because they were thought to be ugly. However, at some point during the replacement programme, the bureaucrats changed their mind, deciding that the structures had artistic merit after all.
