Paris - A trip to the "city of love"

City of light, city of love - Paris has many names and a reputation that goes beyond its many beauties. Perfumes that are known worldwide as the best, a cuisine that inspires so many cuisines around the world, not to mention the famous Parisian fashion - Paris is indeed in the eye of 9 out of 10 travel enthusiasts.

Certainly 2 days will never be enough to see so many beauties, I would recommend a week or more, so that the visit is more complete, although it will certainly leave you wanting more, much more!

One of the things that stands out is the movement any day of the week, every day looks like Friday, in bars and restaurants, people having their drinks at the end of the day, various groups smiling and interacting as if every evening in Paris were an eternal "Happy Hour".

In the midst of so many formidable beauties, between the Field of Mars and 5 Avenue Anatole, the star of Paris and its greatest symbol, nicknamed "The Iron Lady", the Eiffel Tower, built 134 years ago, designed by the engineer Gustave Eiffel, totally forged in iron, is 330 meters high, has an elevator that moves intriguingly up to the second floor, The ticket costs an average of 18.50 euros, but to go to the restaurants on the top floor you pay 47.30 euros for adults, with the right to a glass of champagne, served at the Champagne Bar at the top, and children don't pay.

There are different prices for adults and children, but in general most people end up going up to the second floor and enjoying a privileged view of the entire Campo de Marte, the city and the River Seine, which is not by chance the most visited place in the world!

Speaking of the River Seine, it is a very important river, not only because of its beauty and the fact that it is within 500 meters of all the main attractions in Paris, but also because of its important waterway, which transports all kinds of products and raw materials necessary for the functioning of Paris, a means of transportation chosen for its ecological preservation value, which also avoids major traffic jams and environmental pollution. The many boats that bring tourists from all over the world up and down the River Seine are called "bateaux Mouches" or "fly boats", and some restaurant boats are also found on its banks, as well as the very charming 37 bridges that exist over the River Seine. In fact, this is not just any river, but one of the many attractions that Paris offers.

The Arc de Triomphe, in the Place Charles Gaulle, is a building of lush dimensions, almost fifty meters high and over twenty meters wide, with more than two hundred years of existence, was built at the behest of Napoleon to celebrate military victories, and provides beautiful photos for tourists. Access is underground, from there you can reach the top of the building (the ticket costs about thirteen euros), many tourists just take their photos across the street.

It is considered the most beautiful boulevard in the world and is almost a kilometer long. The "Champs Élysées", where you will find the most famous brands as well as the official Euro Disney store, full of cafes decorated with many flowers. Certainly a very inviting walk when visiting Paris.

Central landmark of the city of Paris, and the largest art museum in the world, the "Louvre Museum" or in French "Musée du Louvre" is located on the right bank of the River Seine, houses almost forty thousand objects from prehistory to the 21st century, almost eighty thousand square meters of built area, located in the Louvre Palace, originally built as the "Louvre Castle", after many years King Louis XIV chose the Versailles Castle as his residence, leaving the Louvre mainly as a place to exhibit the royal collection. And in 1692 an ancient collection of Greek and Roman sculptures arrived, starting the great exhibition center, but it wasn't until 1699 that an exhibition was held that began a series.

It was not officially opened as a museum until 100 years later, and since then various historical events have taken place and various other exhibitions, and changes to its original format of use, and at that time the shape of its building was practically rectangular.
The shape of the building was only changed at the beginning of the 1980s, when President Francois Mitterrand proposed that the Louvre be renovated by architect I.M. Pei, who brought the famous pyramids to the museum's courtyard.

It's worth noting that every first Friday of the month, this incredible place is open to the public free of charge, starting at eighteen o'clock.

Jardin des Tuileries: This beautiful garden is located between the Louvre Museum and the Champs Elysees, a place full of sculptures, many benches to enjoy the scenery, many cafes along the way and snack bars. The walk in this place, which provides good photos, is highly recommended.

We would say that all of Paris is highly recommended: churches, sculptures, works of art, history and lots of charm can be found in this beautiful place called Paris, the capital of France.
