This week we're looking at the best sites to help you plan a weekend break in five European cities: Paris, London, Rome, Prague, and Barcelona. We'll give you the lowdown on the high culture and the latest from the Old World to help you organize a successful trip.


The relatively small size of central Paris and its many architectural attractions make it ideal for the pedestrian. So much so, the French language even spawned a word for a person who does nothing but stroll the streets in search of distraction––a flâneur.

For the famous Paris attractions, such as the Jardins des Tuileries, the Place de la Concorde, and of course the Champs-Elysées, you'll find lots of detailed information on the tourist sites listed below. But for our money, the real Paris of bon vivants––tellingly, another phrase we had to borrow from the French––is on the streets and in the cafés and brasseries: the Paris of the boulevardier.
