What to see in Paris
Take for example the incomparable Louvre, the largest museum in the world and home to the spell binding Mona Lisa.
You can retrace the history of civilization through an immense range of art within these walls before venturing back across town to marvel at the imposing Arc de Triomphe. Further along on the River Seine, lies the ancient facades of Notre Dame and when you finally stand beneath the spire of the Eiffel Tower, you fully realize the architectural genius of the entire city of Paris. Ancient, colorful and iconic in every way; few cityscapes in the world can claim such an alluring appearance and even less can offer the sheer magnitude of important landmarks.
Another highlight of this enchanting city is the cuisine and the scale of restaurants in Paris is staggering. Even a simple pastry can taste so much better in the city of love. Pain du chocolat, croissant or kroglaff; there are many varieties and none of which will disappoint. This variety also extends far and wide, from the many types of cheese in Laurent Dubois to the extravagant wines in the cellar at L’Avant Comptoir Bar. And then there are the restaurants, of which there are so many to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which one you can afford to miss. Choose the lively atmosphere at Chez L’Ami Jean or an affordable French classic meal at Bistro Paul Bert, something a little more exclusive at Le Chateaubriand or something a little different such as a falafel sandwich at L’AS DU FALLAFAL
Walking along the Champs D’Elysees and through a myriad of connecting streets, it’s easy to see why Paris is referred to as the city of love, for this is certainly a destination which promises a distinct sense of allure everywhere you go. Intersected by frequent cappuccino’s, majestic landmarks, expensive designer stores and delightful cuisine, Paris is a haven for anyone interested in food, shopping, history or architecture, and it promises to be a genuine treat for everyone else.
French cuisine is famous all over the world, yet nowhere does it taste so good and when you stand beneath the facades in this truly enchanting city and explore the rich current running underneath, it will not only be the taste of food that will stay long after you leave, but also the awe inspiring sights and sounds in what is arguably the world’s most fascinating city.
