    Extremely beautiful (and a bit pricey)

    Paris is a beautiful city. Almost every building at the city center is unique and the architecture is remarkable. But be prepared to spend a lot of euros, because the city is expensive.

    Insider Tip:A lot of places offer discounts for youths/students, and many of them are free for studying European citizens.

    Two days in Paris

    We visited Paris for 48 hours. 10 hours in total were for sleep so 38 hours left for sightseeing. So, 4,5 hours spent on transportation (to/from airport) and metro. 5 Hours into the louvre museum,3 hours in the eiffel tower 2 hours in monmarte 2 hours in the seine with the boat and the rest for general sightseeing in the city centre (trocadero, notre damn etc.)

    Insider Tip:Buy a full pass on the metro for plus one day of your visit!

    Smelly and loud but gotta love it!

    Paris is a beautiful city... There is so much to see and do. Just don't walk along the Seine without some nose plugs

    refreshing and colorful Paris

    Walking around is recommended. Macarons are very good. It is not necessary to go to Louvre. There are many interesting museums in this city. Go to those you are interested in.
