Paris is always a good idea! Who haven’t heard these words at least…5 times so far? Well, Paris will always be the best idea on my mind. I love Paris for no specific reason and for a thousand of reasons at the same time. But really, I can’t explain how this love started. All I know is that it’s real and will last forever.
I will always dream of the day I will arrive at the airport with one way ticket in hand to the French capital.
A trip to Paris is in my Spring plans list. Sure, sometimes things don’t go as planned due to unexpected events, but I would like to share with you some of the places I will visit if everything goes as planned.
Monmarte is the neighborhood I stayed in Paris on my first visit. Because of that is one of my favorite places, a place which I want to visit again and again, every time I go there. It is also the place where you can enjoy one of the best views you can find in Paris climbing on top of Sacré-Cœur Basilica. It’s really worth the trouble of walking up 300 steps to get to the top.
I fell in love with this museum before I even been there ( have visited it three times until now) by reading a short description of it’s garden, it’s wonderful classic architecture building and of course it’s beautiful Auguste Rodin’s sculptures. These sculptures you can easily see and admire as they are in several places in the museum and the garden. In the museum there are Rodin’s art work as well as pieces of his personal art collection. (2017 marks the 100th anniversary of Rodin’s death)
Jardin de Luxemburg
After a stroll and some shopping around the left side of the city, a visit to Musee d’Orsay, lunch at Café de Flore and looking for books at Shakespeare and Company bookstore, you need some time to rest and relax at this beautiful garden. A selfie sitting at the distinctive green chairs is almost a necessity.
Shopping and window shopping
On Avenue des Champs-Élysées, Avenue Montaigne or on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré you can find some of the most world famous designer shops, not just French. Collete, Longchamp, Chanel, Hermes are just some of them. I might not be able to afford most of them as luxury items shopping is out of my budget (for the moment) but window shopping is free and open to everyone plus, you can always have an idea of the best fashion trends and styles of the season.
Café Kitsuné, Boot Café, Café Oberkampf
These are some of the cafes i want to visit in Paris. Some of them like Café Kitsuné have opened recently and seeing photos on Instagram and reading praising reviews in favorite accounts makes me want to see them too.
Well, there you have it: some of the places I would like to visit on my next trip to Paris. And what about you? Which is your favorite city in the world? Have you ever been to Paris? Share your experiences with us and let us know in the comment section below
