Paris is a fast paced city but slow living is the aim of the game. It's famed for its grandeur architecture, kerb side cafes and revered fashion and art worlds, with designers, models and street style photographers descending on the city twice yearly for the fashion roadshow. The city averages ten hours a day of sunshine in the summer but rain can still be a common occurence, so always pack a jacket as well as classic summer garb. Check out what to pack above and a few hotspots below.
