Paris, the city of light, is an eternal destination, visited every year by almost 18 million foreign tourists. This makes it the most visited city in the world with London. A romantic destination and a cultural setting, Paris is both a city steeped in history, a temple of shopping and gay-friendly spot at the heart of Europe, with the recent introduction in France of marriage and adoption for all citizens.
For a first visit, you cannot miss the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, Notre-Dame, Champs-Elysees and the Louvre, of course. We advise you also to consider the Père-Lachaise cemetery, to visit the Opera or the Arc de Triomphe. Museums abound, from the most unusual to the most academic.
The metro will be your best friend to move from one neighbourhood to another, from Saint-Germain to Bastille, from Les Halles to Pigalle, Republique to Opéra. But it’s up to you to discover by foot the best of the city from one bank to the other of the Seine, strolling among the shops and the small boutiques, taking breaks outside cafés.
Paris also has one of the best organized gay areas in Europe: the Marais, at the heart of the city, overlaps the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, especially along the rue Sainte-Croix-de-la-Bretonnerie and the rue des Archives. In the same area you can find most gay establishments in the city: bars, restaurants, shops, clubs. The area is particularly lively on weekends.
After a long period of drowsiness, Paris has retrieved in recent years its taste for fun with gay parties every weekend: Scream, Code 69, Doctor Love, Beardrop, Lim, Revolution, Matinée, don’t forget to check the calendar!
At the end of June every year, you can enjoy one of the largest gay pride events in Europe.
