Last year at this same time I was in Paris, city of love, on my honeymoon.
We rented a small studio in the center, so we immediately felt like we are really living there. We did not have much time to see all these beautiful sights, so we started exploring right away!
First on the list was the Eiffel Tower. Line was not so long as we expected, so we quickly found ourselves in an elevator that has led us to the top of Paris. For people who are afraid of heights, it might look a little scary, but when you see that view, all fear stops.
In front of Notre Dame there bunch of tourists of all races and nationalities. We joined them in watching the true Gothic masterpieces. In the streets around Notre Dame, there are many souvenir shops where you’ll find magnets, key rings, t-shirts, paintings of Paris and everything else that comes to your mind. I love souvenirs so I bought bunch of things.
After sightseeing, we walked a bit along the river, waving at the tourist boats, and then we moved to the other side of river to visit something a little more modern – Georges Pompidou Centre. My husband was thrilled with the variety of pipes that have surrounded the building, and I liked the atmosphere around it.
And then the Louvre, one of the largest museums in the world. Since we didn’t have much time, we decided to rescheduled our coffee with Mona Lisa for some other time! But, Louvre is really spectacular!
We also walked down Avenue des Champs-Élysées, where I grazed my eyes on the jewels, perfumes, expensive fashion brands, while my husband rolled his eyes. He was much happier in the Latin quarter, where he did not know what food to try first. Every part of Paris really is engraved in our hearts, but the best and most picturesque part of Paris is Montmartre, home to numerous number of artists. On top of this hill is a beautiful white basilica of Sacré-Coeur on whose steps and lawns tourists rest after a strenuous walk up to Montmartre.
This is only a small part of what we saw in Paris, and I definitely hope that we will again have the opportunity to visit it.
