This week we are traveling to Paris, having Marika (@marikamarangella) as our tour guide. We were very excited from the first day about the launch of our short travelogues and after the amount of love we received for the guide of Turin by @vittomotta and the guide of Stockholm by Milana (@norrskenet), we received many suggestions for new cities to explore. And here is Paris!
Paris is among the most popular (and romantic) cities worldwide, attracting many tourists all over the year. There are so many things to check that one trip is not enough! Paris is the capital of France and is popular for attractions like the Louvre, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Moulin Rouge, but also for its cuisine, its fashion sense, its art and its whole vibe. There’s no way you can ever feel bored in this city, with every street leading to a new neighbourhood.
From haute couture to haute cuisine and from wine and croissants to… Paris Saint-Germain F.C, Paris always manages to surprise you in the most unexpected way.
Let’s start this Parisian walking together…
A real Parisian walks through the boulevards with his baguette under the arm.
Montmartre is in the 18 arrondissement, it’s one of the most seen places. Sacré Coeur, Place du Tertre, Theo Van Gogh’s home are only some examples of the beauty of this place.
Place du Tertre is the artists’ place. Here you can be the model for a portrait or you can buy a wonderful picture.
Moulin Rouge is known for its Cabaret shows. It’s in Pigalle, the Parisian red zone
Galerie Vivienne, in the 2 arrondissement, it’s one of the Parisian secret passages. There, take a coffee at the Bistrot Vivienne.
“Les Deux Plateaux” but as known as “Les Colonnes de Buren”, in the Royal Place just near the Louvre Museum.
The Louvre Museum and its Pyramid. All the world knows this place or dreams to go one day.
Musée d’Orsay. If you love Art, go here. Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Courbet are waiting for you.
Bistrot, a Parisian spends the biggest part of his day in a bistrot.
Shakespeare and Company bookstore is in the Left Bank not so far from Notre Dame and the Sorbonne University.
Bouquieries are on the Left Bank. Every Sunday you can buy old books, newspapers, pictures.
Notre Dame viewed from the Seine.
Jardin du Luxembourg, It’s a typical English garden. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy your day.
Tour Eiffel viewed from the Trocadéro.
Arc de Triomphe, go up this monument to see all the Parisian boulevards.
Pont Alexandre III. It connects the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais to the Invalides.
If you want to admire all the best Parisian monuments, take a walk along the Seine.
Lovers in Paris on the Pont Neuf.
When you walk in Paris, you have a lot of things to admire, to photograph, to visit and sometimes you have to think to all her beauty like this Thinking Gargoyle.
It has been a pleasure to be your Parisian guide. Now, I hope to meet all there!
