Europe, France

Heavenly Paris

Europe France

Paris. The city of love – and not for nothing, even if you were with a best friend or with your other other half. The best places are not on the map, you will find them by exploring the city. Just go with your intuition and wander infinitely down those cozy streets. Stop by a cafe for a coffee and enjoy a traditional french croissant, have a breakfast with a view of Eiffel tower or drink wine over candlelight.

Shopping in Paris is like a heaven. If you want luxury, go to the Champs- Élysées and if you alternatively want to just explore, I suggest researching all the vintage shops. There are vintage boutiques behind every corner and those are full of Parisian treasures – bags of Louis Vuitton and also antiques. For example I found a perfect Tommy Hilfiger sweater for 1€; crazy isn’t it!? On a previous day, I had bought Tommy Hilfiger’s heels from Champs- Élysées and if you compare the prices, I paid a bit too much for them!

Food and wine in Paris is also heavenly. The smallest restaurants usually have the best dishes. Try something new or order a meal with a name you don’t recognize. I have never been disappointed by French food! Also,I suggest making time for a traditional Parisian picnic next to Seine or at Tuileries Garden.

The must see things in Paris are the Eiffel tower, Arc De Triomphe (and the views up there), Seine, Montmartre & Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame, Champs- Élysées, Tuileries and of course, the Louvre. Paris is heaven on earth and I believe you will love it as much as I did!
