Ahh, Paris.. The city of love, light, art and culture. Personally I can’t get enough of this city – you can’t explain the love a girl has for Paris, non? I think Paris is probably one of the most famous cities of the world, and we all know what to do here: visit the Eiffel Tower, visit the Arc de Triomphe and walk around at the Champs-Élysées .. but did you also think about these 10 things?
1. Climb the Eiffel Tower
Climbing the Eiffel Tower makes you see and experience more of Paris’s biggest tourist attraction through a cheaper way. And it sure as hell will make you appreciate the view more. Besides that, it really isn’t that hard: it looks way more exhausting than it really is! But whatever you do, don’t waste your time standing in line for the elevator!
2. Eat a macaron
You just have to. This typical French cookie is available almost everywhere in Paris. Try one from the macaron store Ladurée. Delicious!
3. See the Eiffel Tower when it gets dark
I think the Eiffel Tower is far more beautiful when it is dark. Actually, I guess that the right term is magical. At night the Eiffel Tower lights up and starts sparkling for a few minutes every hour. Visiting the Eiffel Tower at night is definitely worth your time!
4. Walk around in the 6th arrondisement
The 6th arrondisement is definitely my favorite neighborhood in Paris. The houses look amazing, the Jardin du Luxembourg is a lot more peaceful than the Jardin des Tuileries and the food in the Latin Quartier is de-li-cious!
5. Visit Musée d’Orsay
Musée d’Orsay is one of the top museums of Paris.. but when you thought about visiting a musea in Paris, did you think about a visit to the Louvre, or the Musée d’Orsay? As the Louvre is so popular and crowded we think going to the Musée d’Orsay instead won’t disappoint you! The building itself is already magnificent to see, and of course there is a huge collection of famous, and less famous paintings.
6. Get painted in Montmartre
Montmartre, another one of my favorite quarters in Paris. The streets are filled with artists who sing, do some kind of street act or ofcourse: paint! When you are in Montmartre you’ll have enough opportunities to get painted so don’t waist those chances!
7. Watch a show at the Moulin Rouge
We’ve all seen the movie right? The shows at the Moulin Rouge are spectacular, definitly something to experience. The shows are a little bit expensive, but worth the money, absolutely!
8. Have dinner at the Eiffel Tower
Talking about a dinner with a view.. You can have your dinner at the Eiffel Tower. How amazing is that?
9. Eat a crêpe at the Jardin des Tuileries
After a week of Paris you’ll be nauseous at the thought of a crêpe, but until that time arrives: eat them like it’s water. They are soooo good.
10. Shop at the Galeries Lafayette..
..And buy yourself an expensive gift.
