When spending some time out in a teeming metropolis like Paris, it can be difficult for visitors to narrow down the to-do list and come up with a manageable itinerary.
However, one of the best ways to really get to grips with the atmosphere and feel of a place is by witnessing an event that holds some significance to the local community.
On 10th February, the French capital will be playing host to the world-famous Paris Carnival - and this should prove to be a simply unmissable event.
The theme for this year's run is The World of Toys - and this will see participants attired in a variety of ways to celebrate the playful world of childhood.
Mums and dads could find that the kids will be delighted by the diversity of costumes that comprise the parade.
By booking rooms at the The Millennium Hotel Paris Opera, visitors to the city will find that they are right in the heart of the action and do not need to travel far to get to the parade.
