So many people dream of visiting Paris. I’ve been to the City of Love many times and I’m always impressed by what this city has to offer. From my experience, here are 10 ways to make your dream trip to Paris come true.
1# Stay Somewhere Nice:
There are a lot of expensive hotels in Paris that lack the comfort and quality. Avoid the mistake of staying in these places. Why not stay at one of the Paris luxury apartments or a five-star hotel? This may be pricey, but this is your dream trip and it will be worth it.
2# Soak Up the Atmosphere:
Paris is an atmospheric city. Wherever you go, you’ll see life and some kind of activity that takes your breath away. You can wander around the streets and enjoy the buskers or street performers. And, the architecture is spectacular too. Just remember to bring your camera to capture those unforgettable moments.
3# Tick the Eiffel Tower off the Bucket List:
When you’re in Paris, you have the opportunity to go up. You can buy tickets in advance to skip the lines and can make your dream come true. Don’t forget to walk around the city for some of the best photographs of the tower. The gardens below it are also a nice place to relax and soak everything up
4# See the Mona Lisa:
This is the most famous painting in the world, which was made even more famous by the Da Vinci Code. You can go and see this masterpiece for yourself in the Louvre. The museum is also full of other paintings and you can easily spend hours walking around.
5# Enjoy the Café Culture:
Cafes in Paris are famous for their charm and character. We’ve all seen the quaint and romantic little shops full of elegant Parisians in the movies. You can sit inside during the colder months and get cosy by the fire. Or in the summer months, why not sit outside on the terraces and watch the world go by.
6# Take a Free Walking Tour:
This is the dream trip that you’re going to remember for the rest of your life. You don’t want to have the photographs and not know what you’re actually looking at. The good news is that you can join a free walking of the city. Local guides take you around and explain the history of the famous monuments and give some little cultural insights too.
I love the tours and you also get to meet a lot of other visitors, which can develop into friendships. Take it from me, learn more about the rich past of this great city.
7# Be Romantic:
There are so many romantic places in Paris, it’s not called the City of Love for nothing. Enjoy romantic strolls along the River Seine or go for a candlelit dinner in some of the best restaurants in the world.
Soak it all up and enjoy it.
You don’t have to miss out on this if you’re single or visiting with friends. Enjoy the romanticism of Paris.
8# Take in All of the History:
You can see so many historical monuments and buildings in Paris. This includes Notre Dame, the Palace of Versailles, and many, many more. Gothic buildings are around every corner and the grandiose nature of everything is breath-taking. Don’t forget to spot all the gargoyles perched on top of Notre Dame.
A quick tip. You can actually go up the tower of some of the churches for great views of the city below.
9# Don’t Neglect the Parks:
Paris is full of beautiful parks. One of my favourite things to do is to relax on the grass and enjoy a picnic. Locals come here with their friends and lovers. You’re also going to see lots of joggers and dogs running around. It’s such a nice place to be when the sun is shining to soak up the charm of the city.
10# Try Some Champagne and Wine in Paris:
France is famous for producing some of the finest wine in the world and is the birthplace of champagne. Believe it or not, both are extremely affordable and you can buy decent bottles from almost any supermarket or shop.
Why not make your dream of Paris perfect with a drop of Champagne whilst overlooking the sparkling lights of the Eiffel Tower? You don’t have to spend hundreds of Euros at one of the high-end places either to enjoy this experience.
The Takeaway Message:
When you take your dream trip to Paris, make sure you do everything on this list for the most unforgettable experience of your life. Even if you’ve been here before, there’s still a charm and lots of things that make this one of the best cities in the world.
