PARIS, THE CITY OF LOVE
The city of love, one of the most famous cities in the world. The French capital is a very popular travel destination, and amongst the most visited every year.
Despite its many districts, called arrondissements, Paris is fairly easy to navigate through. All the districts are distributed in a simple order, and maps are very efficient. As for public transport, other than the usual buses and trams, Paris has one of the worlds best and fastest subway. Just hop on a train and get to your destination in no time.
Now, this is where things get interesting. French cuisine has been regarded one of the best cuisines for centuries, and the capital offers a wholesome experience of that exact, world-famous cuisine. A must is to try the traditional French baking products. Croissants, baguettes, the whole deal. A boulangerie, aka bakery we would suggest is Le Grenier a Pain, last years winner for the best boulangerie in Paris. For cheese and wine lovers, French cheeses, as well as wines, are the best in the world. We urge you to give them attention. For dinner, we recommend just wandering and choosing one of the many beautiful smaller restaurants you come upon, rather than going to a big one, and spending loads of cash. A place for ice cream lovers is certainly the Berthillion, a small shop that serves one of the oldest and best natural ice creams.
PLACES AND THINGS TO DO
Right off the bat, Paris’s most famous building, the Eiffel Tower. You can’t miss visiting the historic tower. However, we recommend visiting very early in the morning, if you intend to climb the Eiffel Tower. Another great way to view the tower is from Trocadero, the famous square, that is just elevated enough to give a perfect view of the whole tower. Paris has a long and interesting history, so check out monuments such as Arc de Triomphe amongst many others. Another thing Paris is famous for is art. Probably the most beautiful museum in the entire world is the Louvre. The museum is so huge, we recommend giving it two whole days in order to explore it fully. Other than the various historic artefacts, dating back to Ancient Greece and Egypt, the artwork inside is breathtaking. Amongst them is world’s most famous painting, Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpiece- the Mona Lisa. Paris is also very famous for its fashion and shopping. If you are interested in shopping for high-fashion clothes, shoes and such, you came to the right place. Le Marais is the best place to shop in Paris. Shops like Chanel, Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, are just some amongst many others, and you are often going to find collections unavailable for the rest of the world in these stores, made just for Paris. Making it an absolute heaven for fashionistas.
