Last winter, I made a trip to the city of love, Paris, with my best friend. Our vacation was short – just 2 days.
It took us about 4 hours reaching to the Orly Airport which was the main airport of Paris before Charles de Gaul International Airport was constructed. We stayed in Hotel 3 Des Nations. The hotel was good, clean and conveniently located. It was really close to the metro station. There were many shops, markets, pharmacies and there was a patisserie that smelled yummy whenever i went by it so my friend and i visited very often in two days for its delicious croissants.
The transportation was really easy in this city so don’t worry. If it hadn’t been, i could have lost easily. You can use the metro to go everywhere. It was not only easy but also a quick way to transport so we just used to metro to travel the whole city. The first day of our trip, we went to the Eiffel Tower, the Champ Elysees street and Notre Damme Cathedral. We walked around the Champ Elysees and did some shopping from the shops.
I bought key holders and earring that were in the shape of the Eiffel Tower. Then we ate pizza one the cafes which were around the Seine river with a perfect sightseeing. I highly recommend you to sit one of them and enjoy delicious foods with sightseeing. In the afternoon we went to the Eiffel Tower. I was dying to see it. It was really wonderful and fascinating. We took so many photos.
After it got dark, we joined a boat tour on the Seine river. It offered a wonderful sightseeing in the dark with many colorful lights around. I bet on that Paris looks more beautiful at nights At 7 o’clock, the Eiffel tower turned on its lights and looked really marvelous. The boat excursion was wonderful but the weather was freezing so if you plan to join a boat tour in the evening, you SHOULD take a coat! That night we came to the hotel a bit early because we were exhausted and slept comfortably in our hotel.
Next day we visited the Louvre Museum. The museum had a charming atmosphere with many world-famous paintings.
You should really see the beautiful Mona Lisa with a perfect smile from the hand of Leonarda Da Vinci. There was Louvre Pyramid in the axis of Champ Elysees in the court of the museum. It was really interesting with glamorous design. We also wanted so much to visit the Disneyland but we didn’t have time, I hope we will go the next time. The next day we went to the airport in the morning and left this amazing city sadly…
