A Unique Paris Travel Guide

What I like about Paris are its graceful, elegant and majestic buildings, wonderful galleries and their famous palaces and churches. The place also has a lot of wonderful theme parks, gardens with lots of trees, great looking flowers and some of the world’s best bridges adding to the romantic atmosphere of the place.

If you’ve made your way to the visitor center, buy your tickets for their double Decker bus. In the tour, you will be allowed to rent headsets to listen to guided voiced tours with your own preferred language.

You can have tours that will guide you to the summit of the tower and you can choose to take the steps or have your way up with the help of an elevator. Never forget to bring your camera with you at the occasion and English speaking tour guides can offer you services at the booth.

Notre Dame is located in “Ile de la Cite” in the island of Seine. It is a grand old historical Cathedral and is probably the best looking one in the world. It is one of the must-sees in your itinerary and since it is free to visit, there is no way for you to miss it out.

The rooms are wide and the pieces of furniture are colored in black and dark red that gives the Hilton a feeling of royalty in its halls. Fitted with a large bed and with many windows, the rooms will surely make you relax and enjoy your stay while in Paris.

Paris Travel

From its blend of ancient and modern architecture to its cozy high-end cafes, there is certainly something to please everyone within the city’s walls. The city is almost circular in shape, surrounded by hills on all sides, and divided in half by the River Seine. There are 20 districts that make up the inner city, and each is numbered as its spirals clockwise from the 1st district. Stretching from the northern bank of the Seine are the government and business districts and the Marais and Bastille quarters. South of the river is the University of the Sorbonne, the main district for academics. The 1st six districts, found in the center of the city and clustered around the River Seine, are the location of the majority of tourist attractions. The suburbs found outside of the city’s walls are called La Banlieue, and they are mostly residential areas.

Sightseeing Attractions

The city of Paris is covered with museums, and, if you’re planning to take a day to visit as many as possible, it may be a good idea to purchase the Carte Musées et Monuments. This pass, which can be purchased through the city’s tourist office, covers admission to over seventy hotels within the city’s limits. If you prefer instead to visit only a few best museums Paris has to offer, you’ll absolutely want to check out The Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Picasso Museum, the Rodin Museum, the Delacroix, the Invalides, the Carnavalet, and the Jeu de Paume. These museums can all be found in the city’s first seven districts. Paris is also the home to many fantastic landmarks. For just a brief tour of the wonders of Paris architecture, make sure to visit the Eiffel Tower, the Père-Lachaise Cemetery, the Catacombs, the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sacré Coeur, the Sainte Chapelle, the Pantheon, the Chateau de Versailles, and the Grand Arche de la Defense. However, keep in mind that you could spend weeks in Paris without ever seeing all of the sightseeing attractions that the city has to offer.

Nightlife

To go to Paris without shopping is impossible. Covered in high-end department stores, the fashion capital of the world lives up to its reputation. However, if you’re planning to shop in the city, come prepared to spend a decent chunk of money. Trendy, upscale restaurants can require advance reservations, and, often, the best places to eat are those corner cafes where you’ll find so many of the locals dining. The more tourist-oriented a restaurant is, the higher its prices will be. Paris is also a popular drinking city, and you don’t have to go far to find a bar or nightclub. There are many places that are popular amongst afternoon drinkers, such as the Bastille; however, most of Paris’ bars and nightclubs stay open until around 6 am.
