My time in Paris is nearly done, and what a year! I’ve fallen deeply in love with Paris, and I’ll definitely leave my heart here. I’ve gotten to know the city pretty well by now, and I’ll here give you the top 10 places to go if you’ll ever find yourself in Paris . I do want to recommend you, not to come in the months march-august if possible, since it’s the tourist season, where the lines will be pretty long for almost everything.
- The Eiffel Tower. Okay so I know the first might seem a bit obvious, and so many people have called Paris’s landmark overrated. But it is a must-see in Paris, no matter the season. Of course going up for an amazing view is even better, but it can also easily be enjoyed from either Champs de Mars or Place de Trocadero.
- Musée du Louvre. The Louvre museum is the most visited museum in the world, with its most popular painting being the Mona Lisa. But that is just one of the many wonders you can see at the museum.
- Sacré-Cœur Basilica. Montmatre is definetly my favourite area in Paris, and if you’re set on going, you should consider a visit to the church of Sacré-Cœur. Not only does it have an amazing view if you climb all the stairs to the church, Montmatre is also know as it’s one of the most authentically Parisian neighbourhoods.
- Chateau de Versailles. The Versaille castle is technically not inParis, but if you the time, it’s definitely worth a visit. King Louis XIV wanted to have the most pompous and amazing castle in France, where the Versaille castle and its wonderful gardens became the result. One of the most popular rooms is the Hall of Mirrors.
- Jardin du Luxembourg. If you find yourself in the 6th district of Paris, you should definitely consider a visit to the Luxembourg Gardens. It’s the perfect place for a Sunday stroll, or go to the nearest bakery or supermarket to buy some food and enjoy a picnic by one of the many beautiful spots in the park. There’s also a big park for kids, though with a small entrance fee.
- Cruise on the Seine. This is something I’ve done several times, and though many recommend to go just around sunset, it’s worth a trip any time of the day. You can book a dinner on the cruise Bateau aux Mouches (including piano and violin playing). Of if you just want to enjoy the city of Ligts with a guide, you can book tickets for 10€ online for Vedettes du Pont Neuf.
- Arch de Triumh. The Triumphal Arch is one of Paris’s most fmous monuments, standing at the end of Champs Elysée (which is deffinetly worth wlking down. Another opportunity to get an amazing view of the City of Lights.
- Nore Dame & La Chapelle. Notre Dame and La Chapelle might be some of the most famous and extraordinary churches of Paris. Notre Dame is one of the first Gothic cathedrals in Paris, also with the opportunity of a great view, if you do decide to climb the 400 steps to the tower. La Chapelle is known as the prettiest church in Paris, used by the royals before the French Revolution.
Père Lachaise Cemetery. This is the largest and most popular cemitary in Paris, the first garden cemitery in Paris. There is several famouse singers, writers etc burried here, etc. Edit Piaf, Oscar Wilde and Jim Morrison.
- Any bakery in Paris. As timeout wrote on their article about bakeries in Paris “Not to indulge your sweet tooth in Paris would be a crime.” No matter which bakery you’ll go into, you find yourself drowling over the most delicious french cakes, pastries, baguettes and macroons. If you want to try some of the real french special but dont feel like going to a resturant, a bakery in Paris is the perfect place to go.
Thats all for now darlings! If you have any questions or comments, write them under this post! xxx
