Paris in Paris!

I was reminiscing about my trip to Paris earlier this year. I started to look back on photographs of our weekend away and the memories came flooding back. Paris is a truly amazing city and I would recommend anybody to pay a visit. It is such a romantic city with it cute café’s, traditional French restaurant’s and of course not forgetting all of the breathtaking site’s to see. Here are just some of the photographs that we took whilst in Paris (we tend to get snap happy on holiday and there were over 150 pics in just three days). I hope you enjoy them and can begin to share some of the experiences that we did!

This café was just down the road from the hotel in which we were staying at. As soon as we got off of the Metro for the first time this is what I saw and it was exactly what I envisaged the street of Paris to be like, and more!

Our first view of The Eiffel Tower. I have seen many photographs and pictures before, but it is so much more spectacular in real life. I couldn’t believe the size of it!

This is us half way up! We did go all the way to the top after though! Breathtaking scenery, you can see so much!

Our visit to the Arc de Triomphe. The detailed engraving is very impressive, although the traffic surrounding it was rather chaotic!

The Champs-Elysées is one of the most famous avenue’s in the world, and even the window displays are beyond impressive!

Walking along the River Seine. Beautiful river and scenery all around!

The Notre Dame! A must view, and definitely take time to go inside!

Painters busy in the Jardin du Luxembourg. The prettiest garden that I have ever seen and a lovely contrast to the busy city streets.

Outside The Louvre by the fountains. An impressive view before you even go in. Once inside we got a bit obsessed with the Egyptian section!

On our last day of sightseeing we visited the Montmartre Sacre Coeur, a popular landmark and the highest point of the city.

Paris is a must see city and is known as the most romantic city for a reason. There is lots to do and see to keep you busy, or if you’d rather relax there is the option to take a cruise along the river Seine (something that we unfortunately didn’t have a chance to do)! Just be advised to take a map, or even better a Guide to Paris with you! We thankfully borrowed a brilliant guide from my boyfriends sister and it definitely made a massive difference to our trip!

I would love to hear about your own experiences of Paris and your favourite city breaks!
