No international trip is complete without speaking the native tongue to the locals. In Paris, expect to say bonjour in the morning and Bonsoir at night. Youâll have to decide whether you want to give a daytime or nighttime greeting. There is no statement for the afternoon.
Paris is famous for many things, art included. Visit the Louvre for its remarkable art. Behind a short roped off area, the rare Mona Lisa hangs present at the Louvre for viewing pleasure.
The Louvre is vast and you may want to make plans for exactly which pieces of art you want to see. Even if you only spent one second admiring each piece of art in the Louvre, it would take three weeks to witness it all! To view all the art, you would not be able to take a break for a full three weeks. It would encompass your time night and day to see it all.
Another must-see, while you’re in Paris, is the Eiffel Tower. From the top of the Eiffel Tower, you can see all Paris. Get ready for a little bit of cardio because it is 1,000 feet to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
Sometimes when you’re traveling you don’t know what to expect. You may have planned for a beautiful day but it’s actually raining. Don’t let that stop you from having the time of your life and getting the experiences you planned on. A slight roll of the dice is a part of traveling for the sake of adventure.
Of course, Notre Dame is definitely one of these sites worth seeing in Paris. Whether you’re a morning person or not, you can catch one of the three church services offered at Notre Dame. Another notable church is the Sacred Heart Church, also called Sacre Coeur.
Lovers of structure, beauty, and architecture should stop and admire the golden gates of Versailles. Then, experience the beautiful monument, Arc de Triomphe. The Arc de Triomphe has a host of stairs so be sure to avoid going to the gym before visiting this monument. If the walk up to the rooftop space doesn’t take your breath away, the view will. Panoramic views on top of the Arc de Triomphe show the Eiffel Tower and lush green trees lining the streets of Paris.
Satisfy your fine art cravings at the MusÃ©e Picasso. If you love art creativity and abstract concepts you’ve come to the right city by visiting Paris. It is home to a plethora of museums housing some of the rarest works in the world. When youâve worked up a hunger walking and viewing art, stop and have an authentic French crepe on the streets of Paris.
Interestingly, the shape of a Paris crepe differs from the American style. In Paris the crepe is quite square initially and then folded into a triangular shape. Whereas, American crepes round and resemble thin pancakes until served. Who knows, if you stay long enough you may even pick up the delightful accent of the locals.
