  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi   melainemelamedaway  

    It's hard to picture a city more iconic than Paris. With an astounding collective love of art, architecture and good old fashioned romance - as well as a heady new rap scene - the city has so many dimensions that you're going to have to prioritize. Luckily for you, you'd have to make a real effort not to see something a bit more special than your everyday city. The French capital is intellectual and classy, home to arguably the world’s most prestigious cuisine, and spattered liberally with instantly recognizable landmarks and strikingly memorable sites.

    The Eiffel Tower (and it’s heady restaurant) and Notre Dame have been at the center of so many pieces of writing it seems almost superfluous to describe them; just go. That’s far from your lot, though. The newer museums like the Musee de Quai Branly, where you’ll find indigenous relics and a café with great Eiffel Tower views, or the Sainte Chapelle and its fantastic stained glass, widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful churches.

    The twin, contrasting banks of the Seine (and the chance to dance and snack your way along them) are almost as notorious as the surrounding architecture. The astounding cruise along the river offers a real taste of what it is to be Parisian.

    Sample the snails and frogs' legs, but don’t disregard the nearly raw steak, freshly cooked baguettes and phenomenal selection of high-class wines, either.

    Of course, Paris is known for being a tad pretentious, and you might find that waiters and hotel staff are not quite as helpful as you would expect. You’ll soon be laughing about it, though: this phenomenon is so French it’s painful, and will stick amongst the memories of your holiday as much as the guy in the side street wearing a striped shirt with garlic draped around his neck, or the artist in a lopsided hat gently sketching the Moulin Rouge. Get in amongst the Pompidou Centre for that intense cultural glance, or drift around The Marals at night and enjoy the wine-heavy, very Parisian nightlife.

    It’s all very edgy, and if you have any artistic leanings whatsoever you’ll be in your element, not to mention the colossal draw for food lovers. Peruse the sites, explore the equally compulsive back streets, and go home wishing that your hometown had this much intense, unforgettable class.

      • Welcome to the most beautiful city; Paris
        As you may by now, Paris is the most beautiful city in the world and there are many reasons for that. The city pumps you with energy. As a local, I enjoy walking in the streets, looking up and discovering the city everyday. The things I love doing are little stuffs like walking in the old hidden passages, enjoy the views from the hotel terraces, visiting the flea markets and much more.

        How to save cash while visiting Paris?
        - Plan Ahead
        While looking for trips in Paris, you need to find packages that include your hotel and ticket as this combination is quite expensive. In this area you will need to be alert to the changes in prices and vacation periods
        - Choose wisely on the season
        Paris is expensive in the summer, but more beautiful because you can enjoy the city through riding or by foot. But you could also try the city during the off season where you can save some cash in the winter period and even between May and September.
        - Buy the Paris City Passport
        This pass entitles you to discounts at city, attraction sites, stores, and museums
        - Always travel by metro, Bus, Tramway or RER
        The greatest thing about Paris is the means of transportation to all the sights and attractions you need to see and they are well connected.
        - Food
        Don’t get ripped off in tourist restaurants. Know what is a normal price to pay for everyday items, from coffee (€1-2) to a glass of wine (€4) and a decent meal (€18). Don’t pay for “flat” water in restaurants. All restaurants are legally obliged to bring a carafe of water to your table. When in a cafe, drink your coffee at the bar and pay about half what you’d be charged at a table.

      • Tips for Paris from an Expert
        We went to Paris last summer. When it comes to flying low cost airlines like Transavia it is best to book as early as possible. We got some really cheap ticket from AMS doing this. Like 5 months in advance! We took the train back to Amsterdam.

        The hotel where we stayed was the Hotel de l'Europe near the Gare du Nord station. we chose this hotel because we wanted to be close to the train station from where the train departed back to Amsterdam. The cost of the room was 40 euros a night. A simple hotel, clean and quiet.

        We visited to the Louvre (cliche). The museum is so large that one could be a full week and still not see all of it. I suggest you decide what Art works you going to see before going to the museum, and then go to those first.

        For something great to do: Take a river tour the Seine will give a touch of glamour to your memories for Paris.

        And also try walking to tourist attractions: it's not such a big town and the traffic can be bad - you might be quick. It is the best way to get to know it, although watch out: Be careful with around the bridges on the river. We got hassled by a load of Romanian/Gypsy types who wanted money from us. Unfortunately in Paris they walk a lot and they approach the tourists with excuses of course they have other intentions.

        I recommend NOT taking the green bus tour of Paris. For me, it didn't explain anything important about the places it went. Do it with BIG BUS, which tells the story of every monument, palace or emblematic place that you pass. We tried both.

Sometimes in Paris, the most difficult is to find a great restaurant with authentic food and affordable prices, especially in the most chic Parisians streets. Now, there is a 'hidden germ' just on the corner of 'Grand Palais' called 'Mini Palais'. This is the French restaurant where locals eat, the menu is incredible and prices are super affordable. You can enjoy the terrace during the summer hours with a private garden.
