Visit Paris For An Enchanting Weekend

By: T Stevens

Since Paris is such a magical city, you can just wander around on its majestic streets, listening to your senses urging you to go into a pretty little cafe around a corner and have a slice of delicious tarte citron meringuée, or leaf through old pages with engraved illustrations in an antique book shop. Just sit down in a park under a hundred years old sycamore and enjoy the gentle warmth of the autumn sun and the yellow leaves swirling around in the wind.

If you never have, It’s time to book a hotel in Paris, Lets help you to decide what to do on those short few days which will always be memorable for you.

But if you want to visit all those sight’s of Paris you’ve always heard about, you need a plan, a map and an underground pass. The metro is a very cheap and convenient way to travel in Paris: it gets you anywhere in no time. With its aid you can get from your hotel to the Eiffel Tower (you know, for pictures), but if you’re only there for a weekend, don’t waste two hours waiting in line to get on the elevator.

For a breathtaking view on the city, visit the Montmartre at dusk, with the beautiful white Sacré-Cœur on top of it, colourful markets where local artists exhibit their paintings, and street musicians making this moment unforgettable.

A little cultural journey is very doable in Paris, but if you decide to visit a museum, it doesn’t have to be the Louvre, and not even a picture gallery. There is a much wider variety of museums to choose from, for everyone’s liking: the Musée de la Curiosité et la Magie, Musée de la Marine, Musée de la Mode et du Textile, Musée de la Publicité, Musée de l’Armée, Musée des Arts Décoratifs and even a Musée de l’Erotism, just to name a few.

And when you’re in Paris, you have to visit a street market, where you will find the most surprising little gifts with their own story to tell. Also, try out some freshly baked croissant with the local type of cheese, and be sure to have (what is certain to be) a delicious dinner at a little French restaurant, with dessert and wine and candle-light.

Make a plan, find the famous places, but after that make sure you have some time to just stroll along on the banks of the Seine, admire unknown buildings, go into bars and pubs where there are no tourists, and just let the atmosphere of the city allure you, fascinate you, overwhelm you. Breath in the night air of the streets, watch the lights appear on the horizon, feel the joy of being there, the shared joy of everyone who’s ever been to Paris, ever been in love, and ever been travelling.
