Quote: Paris is a wonderful and charming city - its big but still gives you some kind of small-town impression with its small narrow streets, relaxed athmosphere and old houses. The city is well-equiped with everything your heart desires and your heart may very well come to love this city - mine did.

Overview

The Eiffel tower Notre Dame The St.Germain/Latin district The Chatlet district The jewish Merlet districtQuick Tips: Don't expect Pris to be cheap - it'a actually quite expensive, with everything, except for cheese, French cosmetics, and hair cuts. Best Way To Get Around: There is so much to see in Paris and the way of seeing the town depends on the time you've got. Paris is ideel for walking, but the distances between the Eiffel tower and Notre Dame, for example, are quite long unless your wearing your trekking boots. Biking in Paris is also ideal but it is quite difficult to rent one unless you can borrow one from someone you know. By bike ...Read More

Jardin des Tuileries

Attraction | "Garden of Tuileries"

Quote:
The Garden of Tuileries is one of many oases in Paris. The garden is situated in the very center of the city between the Concorde Square and the Louvre. The garden is sorrounded by walls and as you enter, you walk in to a fertile green space which offers you shadow among the large trees. With plenty of benches, chairs and corners, you can sit relaxing in the sun.

When you enter the garden from the Concorde Square, a beatiful view meets your eye - and it's a nice place to relax your tired "sight-seeing feet" before you walk on either towards the Concorde square, Champs-Elysees and Arc de Triuphe, or towards the Louvre and the Mona Lisa ;-)

Basilica du Sacre Coeur

Attraction | "The sacred Heart - watch Paris from above"

Quote:
The Sacred Heart ( Sacre Ceour ) in the Montmartre district has one of the best and most spectacular views in Paris. From the front entrance to the dome you can watch Paris from above and get a feeling of its size, which can be difficult to get walking around in the cosy, old, romantic streets. From up there you can see all the major sights of Paris: Notre-Dame, Pompidou, the Eiffel Tower etc. The sight is definitely always worth a visit - and it's always a new experience as the sight changes with the weather. You can watch the sun move over the city making it look like it's "alive." The Dome itself is a beautiful and evocative sight with its large colourful roof-motif in mosaic and hundreds of...Read More

Story/Tip

A good way to get around if the weather is bad or your in lack of time and doesn't have the time to explore the city on food or by bike, is to go by the Metro - Metropolitain, which has stations all over townThe underground tunnels of the larger main stations can be a bit confusing because there are several levels, tunnels and a flood of signs. But generaly you should just watch the signs carefully, follow the arrows and check that your in the right platform before you enter the train. The signs always show the name of the terminus People are very helpful but often answer your questions in french eventhough you're asking in english - so the easiest thing to do is to ask a simple yes or no qu...Read More
