Today I’m showing you the beauty of Paris. I have only one time and that was in Paris in 2012. So here are the best places and things to visit and eat in Paris.
- Eiffel Tower:
The Eiffel Tower might be one of the most famous city icons in the world. The tower was built from 1887-1889. At first, many artists and citizens criticized the tower, but know they properly regret doing it. In 2015 the Eiffel tower was the most visited monument in the world with 6.91 million people. The tower is 324 metres high and it’s the tallest building in Paris. I have personally never been on top of the Eiffel Tower, but I heard that you can’t go to the highest level anymore. It’s so sad.
- Notre Dame:
Notre Dame is a medieval cathedral from 1345. The church is one of the worlds most well known and famous church. With many myths and stories about the church is not to know which of them that is true. I personally think it’s a beautiful building and perfect for pictures.
The museum is the world largest art museum and it’s a historical monument in Paris. In 2016 it was the most visited art museum in the world with 7.3 million visitors. Don’t forget seeing Mona Lisa. The museum opened on 10 August 1793 with 537 paintings. Now there are more than art 38,000 objects.
- Arc de Triomphe:
The Arc de Triomphe honors those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. the Arc de Triomphe was designed by Jean Chalgrin in 1806. The Arc de Triomphe has an overall height of 50 meters. It’s a beautiful iconic building.
Montmartre is primarily known for its artistic history and as a nightclub district. I personally first heard about this area in the cartoon Lolu. But you have properly heard about Moulin Rouge. It’s a beautiful and funny area.
- latin quarter:
After I read the book Anna and the french kiss I just want to visit this area. Known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros, the Latin Quarter is the home to a number of higher education establishments. The area gets its name from the Latin language, which was once widely spoken in and around the University since Latin was the language of learning in the Middle ages in Europe.
Cham-Elysees is known for its theatres, cafés, and luxury shops, for the annual Bastille Day military parade. The avenue is about 1.91 kilometers long. The Champs-Élysées and its gardens were originally laid out in 1667 by Andre Le Notre. Just imagine driving in this avenue a true dream.
- Palace of Versailles:
Is a royal chateau in Versailles in the Ille-de-France region of France. It is now open as a museum and is a very popular tourist attraction. First built by Louis XIII in 1624 as a hunting lodge of brick and stone, and designed by the architect Jacques Lemercier. The palace is known to look like it’s made of gold. It’s known for being one of the most beautiful palaces in the world.
The delicious called first Kipferl might be from Austria originally, but it’s the food of Paris know or maybe is just me. The French version of the Kipferl was named for its crescent (croissant) shape and has become an identifiable shape across the world. I don’t know baout you guys but I love it.
Macarons have been produced in the Venetian monasteries since the 8th century A.D. During the Renaissance, Catherine de’ Medici’s Italian pastry chefs made them when she brought them with her to France in 1533 upon marrying Henry II of France. It was not until the 1830s that macarons began to be served two-by-two with the addition of jams, liqueurs, and spices. You can easily made them yourself, but imagine eating them close to The Eiffel Tower.
The baguette today is often considered one of the symbols of French culture viewed from abroad. In Denmark, the french bread is everywhere. It’s a tasty breakfast meal.
I hope you like it.
