Images Of Paris

One of the first things you notice when you walk around Paris is this: the French capital is just as you imagine it. Parisians lounge outside cafés drinking coffee, budding artists sketch whatever passes them into their sketch pads, and everywhere you look is another building which causes an immediate reaction to grab for your camera. Some of the world's best museums can be found here, the list of instantly recognisable landmarks is a lengthy one, and the nightlife is electric to say the least. But one of the French capital's best attributes is that when you want to do nothing but sit back and relax, it's hard to think of a better city in the world to people watch.

    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!
