Popular travel writer and travel show host Laura McKenzie ventures to Paris, France on this travelogue, part of the Laura McKenzie's Travel Tips series. With this episode, McKenzie travels to some of the most famous sights of this French capital, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and Notre Dame Cathedral. She takes a walk down the Champs Élysées, ending at the Arc de Triomphe and offers day trips to Versailles, Chartres, and Fontainebleau. Like many of her travel works, this episode uses McKenzie's practical, efficient way of traveling that benefits any traveler who is looking for more information than just where to eat and what sights to see. McKenzie offers her input on some good inexpensive hotels, how to pack for the weather and conditions, and what type of nightlife is offered and where to find it. Other topics include where to shop for souvenirs, and generally what to expect out of a trip to the City of Lights.
