If you are wondering where to go in Paris, head straight to the historic centre of the city- the 1st arrondissement. Home to the Louvre, the Tuileries Garden, and Les Salles du Carrousel- one of our favourite event venues in Paris.

The best part about this massive space is that the underground location makes it a great place to keep cool in the summer heat.
