Lonely Planet, ROugh GUIde and Time Out all publish excellent goides to the city. Finally, whether you’re actually gomg to Paris or jUSI livmg out the fantasy, make sure you have fun.

Getting there

If make believe isn't good enough, it couldn’t be easier to pop over the Channel for a weekend break. Keep an eye out in the papers, travel agents and on Teletext for discounted flights and you 'll be en route before you can say 'pass the Brie, ma cherie.’
