Independent travel to Paris
In his famous phrase "To see Paris and die" Ilya Ehrenburg put everyone in a clear meaning: this city is so large, beautiful and self-sufficient that after a trip to a person hardly anything else will seem so significant. But still, after the Parisian walks, life seems even more beautiful, and the desire to explore new horizons becomes stronger. And this is also one of the reasons to "see Paris ..."
When to go to Paris?
The French capital is always beautiful. In spring, chestnuts bloom on the boulevards and their pale lilac cloud is in perfect harmony with the May outfits of charming Parisian women. In summer, it is best to walk in the Bois de Boulogne or watch couples in love in the Tuileries Gardens. Autumn is the best time for walks along the Seine on small boats and photo sessions, and winter opens a Christmas extravaganza with hundreds of elegant trees and magical street decorations.
How to get to Paris?
The French and Russian airlines fly to Paris every day. The flight time is just under four hours. From each of the Paris airports where the aircraft arrive, you can reach the city center in an hour by electric trains.
When choosing a hotel, it is worth considering the area in which it is located and the availability of a restaurant and other options. You can have breakfast on every corner in Paris, and the lack of a restaurant in the hotel significantly affects the price of a room. Experienced tourists prefer the simplest hotel, but located closer to the famous attractions. This allows you to save not only money on travel, but also time that you do not want to waste here..
Argue about tastes
Even those who are generally far from culinary issues know about French cuisine. The most expensive Parisian restaurants are concentrated on the Champs Elysees, while the affordable and democratic ones are located on Montmartre. However, there is a chance to taste excellent examples of local cuisine inexpensively in any city district. To do this, it is enough to move a little away from popular attractions and see where ordinary Parisians go. They know where the most aromatic coffee and fresh croissants are, which, by the way, are usually served here for breakfast..
Informative and fun
In addition to the creation of the great Eiffel and the Louvre in the French capital, it is worth looking at Notre Dame Cathedral from the board of a motor ship on the Seine and surrendering to the power of the artists at Sacre Coeur, who are ready to paint a portrait of the traveler in just a few minutes and a couple of euros. This pencil masterpiece will help to make all other impressions of life a little brighter and more pleasant..
