Although it's tempting to take the Métro around Paris, the best way to explore the city is on foot. Walking along the Seine, strolling around the Jardin du Luxembourg, or indulging in some idle flânerie (aimless wandering through an urban environment) along the Grands Boulevards will not only open your eyes to Paris's charm and beauty, but will enable you to discover the city's rich history. Paris is full of surprises and hidden treasures. In this section we suggest three walking tours around different Parisian neighborhoods: Montmartre, the Marais, and the Latin Quarter.
