We would like to give you some reasons why we think that Paris is a must-visit city.
Visit Eifel Tower at night
Visiting Eifel Tower at any time of the day is an absolute must but visiting at night brings a different beauty to it. Starting at nightfall, when the sun sets down, at the beginning of each hour, Eifel Tower begins to sparkle for 5 minutes. As people have said, the sparkling lights are visible from miles away. Imagine finding a beautiful cafe or restaurant with a beautiful terrace or balcony and watching the sparkling Eifel Tower at night. It sounds beautiful, right?
See Art Pieces In The Louvre Museum
Whether you are an art enthusiast or not, visiting The Louvre Museum is a must if you’re visiting Paris for a couple of days. To be completely honest, you can not visit The Louvre and not dedicate at least a whole day to it. This is the world’s largest museum, hosting the best of the best art pieces, including the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, Venus of Milo by Alexandros of Antioch, The wedding at Cana by Paolo Veronese, and so on. And don’t forget about a selfie outside, at the iconic pyramid.
Shop Around Paris
Paris is the center of the fashion world. No matter how much you love or hate shopping you have to spend some time on it in Paris. The main shopping attraction is the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. This is 2 kilometers long avenue, where you can find cafes, restaurants, and shops. Whether you have some money to spend or want to see the luxury stores up close, this is the street to visit.
If you want to visit someplace more affordable for some souvenirs you can always visit Saint-Ouen Flea Market. Here you can buy some cool vintage pieces that will remind you about your visit to Paris for the rest of your life.
Try Delicious French Food
French cooking is one of the main reasons why people want to visit France and in particular Paris. The French cuisine has earned its place among the best cuisines of the world. They even invented the modern Michelin Staring system, which again indicates the class and the level of French gastronomy.
To be honest, you don’t have to visit a Michelin star restaurant in Paris to experience french cuisine. You can visit any little cafe or restaurant on the side of a beautiful street and have a solid meal, that will probably be the best thing you have ever tasted. Just keep in mind that some of the classic french meals are Steak-Frites (pan-seared steak with fries), Beef Bourguignon (beef cooked with mushrooms and wine), Soupe à l’oignon (commonly referred to as French onion soup) and of course all the bread and pastry product you can get your hands on.
And lastly, don’t forget to stop by Laduree and taste the world’s renowned macaroons.
So, if you are the greatest foodie, an art enthusiast, or simply a traveler, then Paris is the place to visit. From its beautiful streets, cafes at the side of the road, magnificent architecture to its delicious gastronomy, you will not be disappointed.
