If you’ve been seriously considering getting away on a well deserved holiday over the coming months, then might we suggest a change from the typical beach holiday that many people seem to automatically book as their go-to response to a holiday. If you think that red hot sunshine, sunburn, and drink holiday makers are overrated, and would like to get a little more culture and romance into your lives, then there’s really only one city on earth that you should be visiting. That city is of course, the capital of France, Paris. There is almost literally something for everybody in this cultured, hustling and bustling city, and once you’ve visited it, you’ll be sure to come back again and again. There are many amazing places to stay in Paris so why not take a look and see for yourself? If Paris sounds like the destination for you, then here are just three things that you simply must do, when you visit this gorgeous and majestic city.
Visit the Arc de Triomphe
The Arc de Triomphe is just one of Paris’ many different signature landmarks and tourist hot spots. This huge and extremely impressive looking monument was built to honour the brave soldiers who fought and died for their county, in the Napoleonic war and the French revolutionary war. It is also within sight of the Eiffel tower, so you can marvel in two beauties at once. The Arc de Triomphe is a sight of natural beauty and is the ultimate shrine to the country’s fallen comrades in arms.
Eat in the stunning Le Fumoir
What makes this stunning restaurant especially appealing to holiday makers, is the fact that despite being located within walking distance of the world famous Louvre Museum, the restaurant isn’t too fancy, it isn’t too over crowded, and perhaps most importantly of all, it isn’t over priced. It’s safe to say that the French know a thing or two about world class cuisine, and the food here is just that. The decor inside is tasteful and warming, the food here is simply stunning, and they even have free WIFI, so you can plan your entire trip from the comfort of your own table. Le Fumoir is a stunning restaurant and is certainly well worth a visit.
Take a trip up the Eiffel tower
What do you think of when you think of Paris? Why the Eiffel Towerof course. No trip to Paris would be complete without a trip up this world famous landmark. As you reach the summit of this amazing piece of architecture, you’ll be rewarded with one of the most impressive panoramic views of the city that you could ever hope for. Make sure to have your cameras at the ready once you reach the summit.
