My Love Affair with Paris

Last year as we were planning our trip, Paris came up. We had visited Nice a few months before, and our experience made us hesitant about visiting another French city. I’m so glad we went!

The Eiffel Tower is obviously a main attraction for tourists, but Paris is so much more! The city is spiralling and so beautiful! Here are some of my favourite sites:

Louvre

Maybe obvious, but I personally had no idea what the Louvre would be like in real life. I loved the beautiful glass structures and fountains with classic French buildings surrounding it.

Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Élysées

Everything about this street and the Arc is stunning. Tree and shop lined Avenue des Champs-Élysées leads up to the Arc de Triomphe.

A quick drive outside of the city, and you get a chance to see the beautiful castle and the surrounding grounds.

Once this bad boy gets all lit up, nothing can compare. The light shows are fabulous. We made a point of going every night.

 

Paris was just as picturesque and lovely as I’d always dreamed it would be. It’s definitely a city I’d love to visit again!
