Flights And Sights

Flying To Paris With American Airlines

Travel to the stylish City of Light with an American Airlines flight to Paris. Sail along the Seine past floodlit landmarks and see the city unfold from the Eiffel Tower's peak when you fly to Paris with American Airlines.

Explore the world-famous Musée du Louvre

Once a 13th-century palace and now home to one of the world's greatest art collections. Crowds peer to see da Vinci's surprisingly small Mona Lisa, but we love Coustou's rearing Marly Horses sculpture in its glass-covered courtyard, as well as Vermeer's tranquil The Lacemaker.

Take the family to the Eiffel Tower

Gustave Eiffel's astounding feat of engineering completed in 1899. Savor the view, and Alain Ducasse's exquisite cuisine at Le Jules Verne restaurant on the second level. Energetic legs can climb the 720 stairs from the base, or ascend by elevator to the viewing platform at the 984 foot-high summit – on a clear day you can see for nearly 45 miles.

Visit one of the world's most perfect cathedrals, Notre-Dame

This 800-year-old gothic cathedral's stained-glass windows, sculptures, and flying buttresses are all picture-postcard worthy. Head up to the top of the bell tower, where you'll share panoramic views of the Seine and the city itself with the cathedral's famous gargoyles.

Window shop along the tres chic Boulevard Haussmann

If you want to take home some Parisian style, explore the grand, gilded Printemps department store, and make a reservation for their free personal shopper service. Rest your weary feet and loot-laden bags under the Printemps Brasserie's immense stained-glass domed cupola, for coffee and a melt-in-your-mouth macaron.

Savor the romantic River Seine meandering its way through Paris

Browse the bouquinistes – tiny riverbank bookstalls piled with rare second-hand novels and prints – and stroll hand-in-hand over the Pont au Change bridge to the Ile de la Cité island. At night, take a cruise on a Bateaux Mouches boat, and gaze at Paris's floodlit Seine-side landmarks.

Find upcoming art at Palais de Tokyo's exhibitions, scrub up at a marble hammam, and stroll through one of city's most famous cemeteries when you fly to Paris with American Airlines. American is with you every step of the way.

Gaze at the gleaming dome of Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre,

The dome is dramatically clinging to the hillside, with relief sculptures on the main doors depicting the life of Christ. In the cobbled courtyard below, street artists can create your family portrait. Explore the crooked little backstreets near the church – scenes from the movie Amelie were filmed here.

Pay your respects at Jim Morrison's flower-strewn grave

Stroll the leafy pathways in these 44 acres to seek out famous names etched on headstones, with 19th-century sculpture and colonnaded tombs. Alice B. Toklas lies alongside Gertrude Stein; Oscar Wilde rests here after his final years in Paris; and the music world is represented by Frédéric Chopin, Gioacchino Antonio Rossini and Edith Piaf.

Take the kids to Cité des Science for high-tech fun

Located in the huge Park de la Villette, this ultramodern science park is a hub of interactive exhibits. The 111-foot high silver-skinned Géode dome houses the sense-spinning IMAX cinema, and little ones can climb aboard the Argonaute wartime submarine and be dazzled in the Planetarium. You can also enjoy an evening stroll through the neon-lit grounds.

Get steamed up in the hammam at La Mosquee de Paris

Inside the mosaic-decorated, Byzantine-inspired steam baths, you first sweat it out in the marble hot rooms. Then lie back while expert attendants pummel and scrub your body. Skin glowing, you will sip fresh mint tea and savor syrupy Moroccan pastries in the patio.

Get the low down on avant-garde art at Palais de Tokyo

This open space, with a sky-lit central hall, hosts cutting edge changing exhibitions, fashion shows and performances. It's open until midnight, perfect for an evening with Paris's young art-loving crowd. Then chow down at Tokyo Eat, its top-floor restaurant complete with UFO-shaped light fittings and sleek furnishings.
