Most tourists visit Paris because there are so many amazing things to do and see like the Eiffel Tower, Grand Palais, Moulin Rouge, Arc de Triomphe, Palace of Versailles and Sacre Coeur Basilica. But if you’re a friend of felines, then you may want to stop by Le Café des Chats.
Customers can grab a simple breakfast — freshly squeezed orange juice and scrambled eggs with mushrooms — and admire the 12 cats that are usually wandering through the café, perched on their cat condos, or watching passersby from the front window. With more than 11 million cat owners in France, this new cat café might be a new trend.
According to BBC travel, the café’s owner, Margaux Gandelon, took her cue from the 150 cat cafes that have become extremely popular in Japan. Margaux has worked with animal welfare and the health department to ensure proper standards for both the cats and the customers.
Don’t worry — there’s much more to see and do in the City of Light if cats aren’t your thing. Get inspired by our photos of the amazing tourist attractions you can’t leave Paris without seeing. And don’t stop there; enter to win an amazing trip for 2 to Paris. Your perfect Paris getaway awaits!
Most seasoned travelers have probably heard of (and dreamt about) the amazing train ride through the Tijuca Rainforest to see the 125-foot Christ the Redeemer statue high atop Corcovado Mountain. And who hasn’t heard the gossip about the Brazilians’ buff beach bodies and the droves of scantily-clad women who sunbathe on the world-famous Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.
Well now, you can get your chance to see Rio de Janeiro – free of charge! Enter to win a trip for 2 to the Marvelous City and see why it’s such a hot vacation destination.

See Rio for yourself! Explore this Brazilian city and its secret treasures like Leblon, Rio’s most affluent neighborhood with a beautiful beach that’s known for being much quieter than Ipanema or Copacabana. See Rio from above and go hang-gliding off Sugarloaf Mountain, or just lay low and spend the day on Paqueta Island, where it’s not uncommon to see a horse-drawn carriage.
