10 Things You Must Do In Paris.

Hey folks,

After literally ages i decided to do a travel post.And after thinking a lot i decided to talk about my dream destination PARIS.I have been super lucky to visit Paris last year on my birthday and i can go back to the place million times more..So today i decided to jot 10 things you must do when you are in Paris.

The moment you step into Paris you can actually feel the love all around.Its so lively and colourful everywhere,children playing with balloons,couples walking hand in hand,fun,frolic and celebrations going all around,newly married couples posing at some random lane of the city.Its truly the city of love.

Here are the 10 things i feel one must do when in the city of love

1.HAVE A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE AT THE TOP OF THE EIFFEL TOWER:

Well,to me this is a must.If you are at the eiffel tower you just can’t come back without a visit to the top level(or 2nd level) of the eiffel tower.You will have to get tickets for that and take the elevator or stairs to the first floor and then to the second.The first level is around 300 steps from the ground and for the second level it is another 300 steps.They have recently renovated the first floor of the tower.It now has all glass flooring,57m from the ground it will offer you a brand new experience.Now don’t stop there,You GOTTO get till the second level.There are restaurants at both the level.So either you can enjoy a glass of champagne and enjoy the breath taking view or even sit at the restaurant or have an ice-cream at the top of the eiffel tower.Isnt that amazing?Theres also a third level of the tower which is generally closed for public.Another thing you MUST do is visit the Eiffel tower at night.The Eiffel Tower gets all pretty and lit up during night and that is the most incredible thing that can happen.

2.VISIT THE LOUVRE MUSEUM(Musée du Louvre):

This is a must visit.It is one of the largest museum in the world.They say it takes you days to tour the entire museum,but sadly when i visited we just had an hour or so to see around.So without much thinking we headed straight to see the famous painting of Monalisa by Leonardo Da Vinci.The Mona Lisa is on a wall by itself in the Salle 13, Denon Wing
1st Floor Room 6.Dont miss out on that Another attraction in the museum, is the inverted pyramid.Dont forget to click picture with the glass pyramid.

3.A VISIT TO VERASILLES PALACE:

Versailles palace is the most royal and magnificent palace i have ever seen in my life.The golden and its architecture will surely drive you crazy.It is a royal chateau in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. In French, it is known as the Château de Versailles.The palace has history in all its corner.There are guides available who would take you around the entire palace and also narrate to you the history.You will have to walk through a cobbled road to reach the palace gates,just a little advice mid your steps while walking,you might sprain your ankle if you are nit careful.

4.VISIT DISNEYLAND PARIS:

No matter what your age is disneyland is a must for everybody.You can book a hotel and stay over at the disneyland or go for a day tour.They have three different parks at the Euro disney,each of them being equally huge.So get a map and decide where you want to go.Disneyland will offer you almost everything from thrilling rides to shows to photo sessions with disney characters,boat ride,restaurants,they just have it all.There are also souvenir shops from where you can buy disney stuffs(though it is extremely expensive).So don’t forget spend a colourful day at the disneyland Paris.

5.YOU CANT MISS THE FRENCH CABARET(LIDO & MOULIN ROUGE):

You cant finish your paris trip without watching the french cabaret.And the most popular places for this are The Lido and Moulin Rouge.If you have kids with you visiting these places might be a problem but if not then don’t miss it.I went for the lido show which is at Champs elysees .Lido de Paris tickets include a ½ bottle of champagne, a choice of three dinner menus and entrance to the show.It will cost you around 80 euros.Yow will be surprised to see the spectacular performances, magnificent costumes,and breathtaking sets.They portray the French culture through this show.They have used a musical of A R Rahman(most probably from the movie lagaan) for a particular act.That was indeed a proud Indian moment.

9.ADMIRE THE BEAUTY OF ARC DE TRIOMPHE: The Arc de Triomphe stands at the center of Place de l’Étoile, the hub from which 12 grand avenues — including the idyllic pedestrian mall, the Champs Élysées — radiate to form the star for which the Place de l’Étoile is named.The Arc de Triomphe built by Napoleon III is one of the examples of paris’s urban plan.The streets around the monument might be little congested due to so many tourists but you just cant miss on this to experience the beautiful architecture.
