TRAVEL GUIDE TO PARIS
“Paris is Always a Good Idea”
Audrey Hepburn’s statement is known worldwide.
Paris is the most famous destination worldwide. It just has a noble greatness etiquette attached to it. Culturally rich and diverse, The City of Lights is filled with many beautiful things to see and do. Its traditions and history have deeply influenced the world for centuries, and seeing La Ville Lumière firsthand can be a truly enriching experience.
I still remember the first time I came to Paris. I was with a friend and we got out of the Métro directly at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. It was 8 pm sharp, so the Tower was sparkling. We embraced each other and started jumping and yelling with joy at the sight of its glorious majesty, La Tour Eiffel. Eight years after, I still feel a certain joy when I pass near the tower. I think no other landmark in the world creates this reaction among tourists from all over the world.
But Paris is more than Eiffel Tower. It is filled with chic cafés, fine dining, and ancient and authentic bookstores such as the legendary Shakespeare and Company which has been home to writers for decades. Spending an entire day at the Louvre is definitely worth the queue line. I spent 8 hours with a dear friend of mine discovering each gallery in the most famous Museum in the World, Le Louvre. We had such a blast.
Shopping, or simply wandering the sophisticated streets of the Le Marais district can be a joy in itself. And a passage to L’As du Falafel, the best falafel in the world, that I’ve tasted so far, will make you lick your hands.
Paris has also been the number-one destination for lovers for centuries!
