Paris is the home to some of the world’s most remarkable monuments, galleries, and museums. It holds a lot of mysteries and historical events in the field of art and architecture. For a student or a person who aspires and has a keen interest in architecture, Paris is a dream come true for them.
The Notre Dame, Arc De Triomphe, Place De La Concorde, The Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides are among the most famous pieces of architecture one must admire in this city. Every nook and corner with their tastefully built up limestone Parisian apartments with their French windows overlooking the little cafes will make you wish to own a place of your own there.
If you are a fan of art, the work of the greats like Rodin, Da Vinci, and Monet amongst various others are a must addition to your list. You can also see the famous Monalisa at the Louvre, provided you get through the crowd around the painting.
Food And Wine
French people love their food as much as they love their wine and it should come as no surprise that you will be exposed to a wide range of options of delicacies ranging from the basic crepes to the exotic Foie Gras.
For a first-timer, you may feel that Parisian cuisines are a bit strange. However, it is okay if you do not want to get experimental with food as there are plenty of regular eating options. Meat stuffed baguettes, crepes, pretzels, croissants and varieties of Fromage (cheese) make for a delicious breakfast and snack options.
For a more filling meal think Croque Monsieur, escargot (snails cooked in butter), and Salade Nicoise or Steak Frites for those who are feeling adventurous and want to experiment. No matter what kind of a meal or snack you have, dessert is a mandatory option one has to try. You could indulge yourself in Crème Brule or some assorted Macarons.
Boating on River Seine
Visiting Paris and not taking a boat ride is not acceptable. You can start at Champ De Mars, and opt for a morning or an evening cruise based upon the weather. Cruise along the Seine while admiring the Parisian architecture with its old, vintage world charm as you go under the famous bridges and pass The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and The Louvre among other famous landmarks.
