No place like Paris

by Kim on October 8, 2017

Sometimes it’s difficult to choose where to go on holiday and sometimes the choice is easy. If you’re looking for a city that is beautiful, historic, romantic and filled with culture, there’s nowhere like Paris. From the iconic Eiffel Tower to the cafes and pastry shops of Montmartre, you’ll wish you could extend your vacation because there’s an endless number of things to see and do. Below, just a few are listed.

Musee D’Orsay

Forget the Louvre, the Musee D’Orsay is without a doubt the best museum in Paris. Situated on the banks of the Seine river, right across from the famous Tuileries gardens, the museum displays art from 1848-1914. The building itself, the former Orsay railway station, it its own work of art. Stop by for a visit, you won’t be disappointed.

Eiffel Tower

Nothing is more iconic in Paris than the Eiffel Tower. Catch a flight New York Paris or a flight San Francisco Paris and then grab a cab to the Eiffel Tower. Though the lines may be long, catching an elevator ride up to the viewing tower is well worth the wait. From the top of the tower one can see for miles and miles and grab a birds-eye view of the city of lights. At night, the tower is illuminated with white, twinkling lights. It’s a sight to behold.

The Catacombs

Looking for a real-life lesson in creepy-crawly history? Look no further than the Catacombs. The Catacombs, an underground maze of passageways lined with human bones, holds the remains of nearly 6 million people. The bones come from Parisian graveyards that were closed down when they began to pose a threat to public health. Today, visitors walk through this maze of remains with a mixture of thrill and horror. Go and see it for yourself.

Roam the Montmartre District

There are an endless number of neighborhoods in Paris and each of them hold their own appeal, but the Montmartre District is certainly popular with visitors, and there’s a reason why. Sitting atop a hill that offers great views of the city below, the basilica is a beautiful and popular stop. Visitors can wander the cobbled streets and get lost for hours, shopping for street art or stopping into a pastry shop for a coffee and a treat. There’s much to do in the Monmartre District, and that’s why tourists go back over and over again.
