Travel to Paris | Art, Architecture, Romance, Shopping – Part 1

River Seine

Romance

The river that is the true essence of Paris, lined with countless sculptures, historic relics, iconic bridges and walkways by the banks that make for truly unforgettable experiences. Make sure to take out time just to walk by the Seine, or take boat rides. Try to experience it at different times of the day, and you’ll have an array experiences that can’t really be captured by a camera. Or words.

Shopping, Romance, Architecture

Here’s the image of the iconic boulevard that inspired me to go to Paris. Hope it inspires you too!

If you visit Paris during off-peak season, you get to see the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in all its glory, without the crowds. It will make for remarkable views, especially from the Arc de Triomphe.

Since it is the world’s most famous Boulevard, it is filled with touristy restaurants and fashion stores, however not much haute couture any more. So avoid shopping or eating there and try to find restaurants that are off-the beaten road, within the tiny streets of the city where you will find authentic French food.

If you like a good walk, and if you want to enjoy the Champs-Élysées and all its sculptures and major buildings,  walk all the way from the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde, or Luxor Obelisk, an ancient Egyptian landmark. The cobble-stoned piazzas and buildings on either side of the boulevard are amazing, and the Grand Palais on your side with its breathtaking lawns, what’s not to love?!
