Number of cultural sites to close in Paris on Saturday reaches 48

Tourists in Paris will struggle to find something to do this weekend.

But given the violence that took place last weekend and the likelihood of a repeat perhaps it's better if tourists avoid the city altogether on Saturday.

Paris City Hall is keeping an up to date list on its website of all the places that will be closed and they include the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum as well as the huge department stores Galeries Lafayette and Printemps.

Open top bus tours won't be running in the capital and many restaurants and shops across the whole city may decide to close up for the day.

Here is the full list of cultural sites closed from the City Hall:
