Paris is a city that never ceases to amaze me, especially when you think of the world famous landmarks, the amazing architecture, truly world class museums, food and so much more. This is a city that keeps you coming back time after time, so naturally I thought it would be a great idea to give you some of my top tips for visiting Paris. Read on to find out more and I hope you enjoy the article.
Flying into Paris is naturally going to be the main way of getting to Paris and my tip for making this easier and better is to take a Paris airport transfer. Not only is it faster, but you can rest in the comfort of your own private car and as soon as you reach your accommodation you won’t need to settle in and can get out and explore the city straight away. A great service that I recently tried was Blacklane and I was really satisfied by how seamless this made my experience, because I really hate trying to get to the city from the airport. It made the experience much less painless and gave me more time to simply enjoy more holiday and I will be doing it every time I visit here.
Viewing the Eiffel Tower
Everybody knows that they want to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris, but what is the best way to do so? Many people simply go to the closest Metro station to visit the tower and go to the top, but there are better ways. My plan of attack would have to be from the Jardins du Trocadéro where you can see the tower from the top of a hill and there are also stunning water cannons that line the way down to the tower. Another great way to visit the tower would be to walk from École Militaire through the Champ de Mars all the way to the base of the tower.
Get the Museum Pass
I already talked a little bit about the amazing museums in Paris that you can visit and there are just so many and this can add up to quite a bit of money. When you buy the museum pass you can visit over 50 museums and monuments an unlimited number of times within the duration of the pass without queuing, which is absolutely amazing. It is also great because there are options of 2, 4 or 6 consecutive days. This pass includes the Louvre, Versailles and many more great attractions that makes the pass well worth it.
Probably my best tip to exploring Paris is to wander around and take any street that looks interesting. I find this to be especially interesting because you can really get away from the areas with a lot of tourists and get an insight into how Parisians go about their day-to-day lives. It is also great to sit outside during the summertime and enjoy a beautiful French pastry with a coffee and watch the people as they walk past.
