Listen to this radio talk about Paris. The speaker gives some advice to tourists how they can spend their time in this beautiful capital.
Paris is one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe. For a start it has the River Seine. The Seine is so wide here that a lot of goods go up and down the river by boat. There are plenty of tourist boats too. One of the best ways to see Paris is from the river.
The old buildings of Paris date from the 11th century. There are palaces, castles and churches. If you are interested in art, especially paintings, then Paris is one of the cities you should go to. One of the most beautiful museums was opened in the centre of Pads in 1986. Before, it had been a railway station. When the station closed, it was turned into a museum.
After a day of visiting churches and museums, you will want to sit down and have a rest. You can find plenty of places in Paris where you can sit down and order just a drink. These are called "cafes". Many of them have large windows which look onto the street, so you can watch the world go by while you sit with your cup of coffee or glass of wine.
Here are two suggestions for spending your evenings. The first is to go to a restaurant. France is famous for its food, which is thought to be the world's finest, after China. If you prefer something different, you could try one of the restaurants which cook Southeast Asian food.
Another possibility is to go to the cinema. You will have a wide choice of films. France is famous for its film-making industry, which dates back to the 1930s. It also holds several world-famous film festivals.
