Of course, Paris is also world-famous for its museums, including the most-visited art museum in the world: the Louvre. The modern pyramid entrance hall leads into this beautiful old palace. You don't want to miss the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo statue! Or stroll along the Champs-Élysées and marvel at the many luxury shops. This is also the site for the colourful Bastille Day celebrations, which are held on 14 July each year. At the end of the day you can sit down in one of the many haute cuisine restaurants or enjoy a drink in a typical French café, bistro or brasserie. Paris is easily accessible by train, with regular direct services from London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne and many other cities.
