World In Paris

Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world and one of the most romantic cities in Europe. There are endless reasons why people choose to visit Paris again and again: it is a beautiful and cultural city, very walkable, with great sights and it has been a source of inspiration for many writers, artists, and filmmakers.

Magnificent Views of Paris

See Paris from above, there are several points offering breathtaking panoramic views of Paris. Enjoy the view from the top landmarks in Paris like the Eiffel Tower, Tour Montparnasse, Notre Dame or Arc de Triomphe. Another cool alternative is to choose one of the best rooftop bars in Paris, from where you can enjoy gorgeous views of the city cocktail in hand. Also, some parks located in the highest areas of the city, like Parc Buttes Chaumont or Parc de Belleville propose great views of the City of Light.

The Sparkling Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris and France. Perhaps is the Eiffel Tower what makes of Paris one of the most romantic cities in Europe? Despite all the controversy during its construction and inauguration (1887 -89) today we cannot imagine a visit to Paris without paying our respects (and take some selfies) to the Dame de Fer. Since 1985 Paris’ icon is adorned with lights that sparkle for 5 minutes every hour on the hour. The sparkling has a reach of 80 kilometers, being this the signal for the nocturnal revival of monuments in Paris.

A City of Luxury and Great Shopping

Paris is today the capital of haute couture and fashion. There is great shopping in the city, especially in the famous Golden Triangle of Paris: Champs-Elyées – Avenue Georges V – Avenue Montaigne display the most prestigious international labels with a strong French presence.
Probably we will never enjoy any of these 5-star luxury hotels but we have to admit that they give a touch of elegance to the City of Light. Hôtel Ritz Paris, Le Bristol Paris, Le Four Seasons Hôtel George V . . . only the names make us dream, at least until we check how much they cost! In any case, have a look at their grandiose facades (and everything the security staff allows you to see), some hotels like Shangri-La Hôtel are listed as historical monuments.

Paris is a City full of Art and History

If you are a culture lover, Paris is the city for you. The city counts 153 museums to explore, with museums like Musée d’Orsay or Louvre Museum are worldwide known. For a more local experience, visit the Musée Carnevalet which offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the City of Light. Or explore some smaller but interesting museums like the Paris Sewer Museum or the (oh so Parisian!) Perfume Museum. If your budget is tight and doesn’t want to spend much on sights, wander around Paris 13 to see Paris’ amazing Street Art. You can also check out Paris’ free museums, with some hidden gems.

Cafe Culture in Paris is Always a Good Idea

Parisian cafes were the meeting place of the French Enlightenment in the XVIIth century. They were the stage of passionately engaging intellectual chats some years later. Today sitting and sipping in a Paris cafe-terrasse is among the finest common pleasures in the City of Light and the perfect place to watch as the city goes by. If you want to enjoy a local breakfast, add a cafe & croissant in a typical Parisian Cafe on your to-do list. We tell you everything about Parisian Cafes and French food on Yummy Paris.
