Paris, IDF, France
4 Kudos
Many words spring to mind when thinking of Paris; beautiful, romantic, glamorous along with cheesey, tacky and over-priced. I would definitely encourage you to adopt the first mindset when thinking of Paris. As although it undoubtedly has its fair share of tourist traps and 16 euro Guinness, the best way to experience the city is to give in and accept it for what it is.

Paris is a huge city, but getting around is easy with the Metro system which has a stop every 500 metres, and offers inexpensive visitor passes such as the Paris Visite card. The quick and easy Metro means that even if you are only in Paris for a few days its easy to zip about and catch all the famous sights.

Paris is definitely a romantic city, and visiting it with someone you love makes it an experience you will never forget. But even if not, Paris is one of the great cities in the world, and with its fantastic sights and experiences will leave you wanting to come back again.

Walking down the Champs Elysees will bring you through the beautiful Jardins des Tuilieres where you can rest in magnificent surroundings.

The Arc de Triomphe built by Napoleon is one of the sights most people would associate with Paris, and gives great views, particularly down the Champs Elysees.
Notre Dame Cathedral
Famous for tales of its hunchback and for its divine beauty, Notre Dame is one of Paris's jewels.
