A Guide To A Paris Vacation

Paris is the capital of France and the second largest city of Western Europe; it has the ability to please everyone and is often referred to as The City of Lights. Many couples decide to take short stay in Paris as it is probably the most romantic city in the world; it is almost guaranteed that a second, longer stay will be required.

Visitors flock to see its many wonderful buildings; it is the home of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and many other famous tourist attractions. Traveling through the city of Paris can be very enjoyable; the Metro underground system is easy to understand, efficient and reaches everywhere even the most enthusiastic tourist would want to visit.

You can’t miss the Eiffel Tower, mainly because it’s over three hundred meters high; it can be seen throughout most locations around the city. Illuminated in the evening, it is one of the most beautiful sights in the entire city; taking a tour at the same time will teach you much more about this remarkable structure.

If you plan on spending some of your traveler’s checks in Paris, then a trip down the Champs Elysees is an essential part of a trip; if you want to see famous, designer label shops and the restaurants, this is the place. This is considered a more exclusive and busy area of the city; it is also where most of the five star hotels are situated but thankfully hotels tend to be cheaper once you move away from the city center.

This city is also the home to the renowned Louvre Museum; it holds in excess of 300,000 pieces of art, which cannot possibly be seen in a single visit. If you are an art lover then you could spend your whole short stay in Paris inside; approximately 8 million visitors a year come to see the Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa, both of which are on display. Many well known artists spent years of their lives in Paris; these include Monet and Picasso who very fortunately left some of their work here for all to enjoy.

Of course, Napoleon commissioned the construction of the Arc de Triomphe, another Paris landmark; the names of his generals are engraved on its surface and another of those “must have” photo land marks. Many people do not know that an observatory was included in the design which affords great views of the surrounding area; in particular those obtained along the lanes that lead from it.

You will not be at a loss for places to visit whilst in the city; and whilst there are many more worthy examples, those listed here should not be missed. It is fair to say that you won’t see everything on a Paris short stay of two or even three day break; what you aren’t able to this time will have to wait for another occasion.
