Visiting Paris

Regarded as the most romantic city in the world, Paris is definitely a wonderful place for couples to visit, although you don’t have to be travelling there with that ‘someone special’ to appreciate it. It is full of famous landmarks and museums, great places to eat and a host of buzzing bars and nightclubs. So even if you are going with some friends or on your own, you won't find it hard to fill your days.

    Paris, a big town!

    I love Paris, it is a very big town, but it has the nice french flair. Nice places to visit. However, for me one week-end is enough because I am not used to big towns.

    Insider Tip:I love Sacre Coeur and Place Montmatre

    Ah, Paris!

    What is there to say?!?! It's Paris!! It's a huge city! A beautiful and and ugly city at the same time! So much to do, so little time.

    Insider Tip:Go to the Louve after 4pm and you'll have it virtually to yourself. Visit the back side of the Sacre-Ceour, it's gorgeous and no one goes there! Get to Versailles as early as possible otherwise you'll spend an hour just waiting in line to get in.

    Paris is Paris

    Paris is the city of artists and should be seen as such. It's beautiful and romantic if you choose to see it that way and don't get held up on details.

    I Enjoyed Paris Despite What Others Have Said

    I really enjoyed Paris. I was afraid because I have heard mixed reviews. I also heard that Parisians were rude. I had a wonderful time in Paris. The city is very well connected so it is very easy to get around. Great food, lots of culture and history. Went the first few days of September and it was pretty cold and windy. Almost unbearably cold at the top of the Eiffel and Montparnasse towers. Incredibly expensive city.
