Visiting Virtual Paris – A Traveler's Guide For Unusual Times

Here in Virtual Paris it's always sunny and the temperature is always 27°C. Just because you can't be here in person doesn't mean you can't vicariously enjoy the charms of the City of Pixels. There are lots of resources online — including here at Paris Insiders Guide — that let you experience what the city has to offer e-visitors.

We've collected a selection of links that take you directly to Paris from your screen. Let's start with the pages we've created that give you the chance to enjoy the city from the comfort of your living room, bedroom, kitchen… or your basement, if you happen to be in quarantine. (On another page we share links to virtual museum visits and other resources.) Here, then, is your e-guide to the City of Virtual Delights.
