Where to live:
Paris is divided into 20 different arrondissements which are further divided into different quarters. The capital is also divided internally by the river Seine, as it runs right through the city. The area north of the river is called Rive Droit and the South of the river is called Rive Gauche. The attractions are spread out all over the city, therefore it is very subjective when it comes to deciding the optimal place to stay when visiting:
Le Marais: located in the 3rd and 4th arrondissement in the very heart of Paris. It is a historical, trendy and diverse area filled with beautiful streets, old buildings and charming atmosphere.
Latin Quarter: located in the 5th arrondissement and is a great suggestion for a cheaper but still quality-minded area. The style is very laid back, but with a touch of the Parisian charm. It is one of the oldest areas in Paris and thereby filled with historical sightings and beautiful architecture.
Saint Germain: located in the 6th arrondissement and is considered a more family friendly area. Although most places in Paris are suitable for families, this area is especially suitable for families with small children.
Montmartre: located in the 18th arrondissement and is statistically one of the most popular places to stay in Paris. Although it is placed a bit on the outskirts of the city, people are sold off by the captivating romantic and artistic feel of the area.
What to experience:
The Eiffel Tower: the biggest of all experiences and attractions in Paris is definitely the world-famous Eiffel Tower. You can visit three different floors, by elevator or the stairs. At the top of the Tower, you will find the most spectacular view over Paris.
Champs-Élysées: the 1,9 km long boulevard is a must visit, especially if you are a shopaholic. High end brands and fancy stores are found here in abundance. At the end of the boulevard, you can find another world-famous attraction: the Arc de Triomphe.
Arc de Triomphe: this incredible arc was built on the orders from Napoléon as a tribute to the French army. Admire the architecture from afar or take a trip up on top of the arc and enjoy the view.
Louvre: one of the most famous museums in the world is found in central Paris. It is the home of Leonardo de Vinci’s painting “Mona Lisa”. The museum is divided into 8 sections with a whole world of sculptures, paintings and other art in different forms. There is a rumor saying that it would take you two weeks to see everything in the museum, if you stare at each art piece for 6 seconds.
The Seine: jump on a boat and sail your way through Paris on their beautiful river. It is a great and relaxing way to experience a lot of attractions all around the city, such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. If you are not a big sailor, you can take a long stroll alongside the river instead.
So, now you can go and experience all these places and attractions that Paris has to offer for yourself. Remember to enjoy all the new impressions, and take in every minute of it.
