The city of lights, the city of love, the city of pleasure and amusement, the epicenter of taste and culture, call it what you want and you will still run out of things to say about how wonderful Paris is. Situated on the river Seine in the north of France, Paris is one of the most well known places in world.
Most people believe that love is a once in a lifetime occurrence, obviously these people haven’t been to Paris. The city provides more than just attractions or places of interest. When you step onto the city streets, you will surely be blanketed by a distinct ambiance of romance not found anywhere else.
Sometimes, just sitting idly in one of the hundreds of cafes is enough to be overwhelmed by the city’s grandeur. But, if by any chance you manage to shake off the feeling of paralyzing amazement, then you can start visiting the cities most important places, those which makes Paris what it is and what it has been.
Making your way to these historic venues should be considered as sights and activities in itself. You’ll be treated to an inspiring journey the minute you exit your hotel room. Paris offers more than 750 hotels ranging from the affordable (Hôtel le Parisien Saint-Lazare) to the ritzy (Maurice Belle Etoile Suite).
While walking is considered to be the most scenic way to see Paris there are rail systems, called the Metro, and cabs to help you rest your feet while on your way to more far off places.
Museums are a dime a dozen in Paris, but the crème de la crème is surely the Musee du Louvre. Here you can take guided tours, or be brave enough to venture around its seemingly endless halls by yourself, and see firsthand the most seminal pieces of art (by the thousands) ever produced by Western culture.
Of course, there’s also one of the Seven Wonders of the World, a little thing called the Eiffel Tower. Engineered by Gustave Eiffel, it is the tallest building in all of Paris. 200,000,000 people have visited it since 1889, and you owe to yourself to be number 200,000,001. Seeing Paris from its peak should be on anyone’s bucket list.
No trip to a foreign country would be complete without tasting the local delicacy. Fortunately, French cuisine just happens to provide some of the best dishes. Tickle your palette while eating at the many local restaurants scattered throughout the city. If ever you get full to the brim with escargot and baguettes, you can also try restaurants specializing in African, American, Belgian, British & Irish, Central European, Chinese, East European, French, German & Austrian, Greek, Indian, Indonesian, Italian, and Japanese to name few.
There are many more things to do and see in Paris such as Notre Dame, Centre Pompidou, Cite de Sciences at de l’Industrie, and the Arc de Triomphe. But whatever these are, no description would ever give them justice, for they should be experienced.
