Paris, France

The capital of France and built along the river Seine in the northern part of the country, Paris has two small central islands - Île Saint-Louis and the Île de la Cité - and the rest of the city is organized in a clockwise spiral of arrondissements, or districts. Matador has articles on Paris' art and culture - there are dozens of museums and monuments, including the famous Louvre and Eiffel Tower and the not as famous Sewer museum and Catacombs. There is also art on the streets: see if you can find the Space Invaders mosaics or some Banksy art. Or you can stop by some literary haunts for some writing inspiration or to pick up a book in English. It's a beautiful city with lots to do, but it can be a pretty expensive one. Matador has suggestions on how to enjoy the city on $100 a day as well as free things to do. Or how and where to eat to save some cash.

Be a local. Wherever you go.
