Hello lovely people!
Hope you've had an amazing week. So this week I travelled to Paris for a few days to do some sightseeing and exploring the beautiful city. We travelled via the Eurostar and would highly recommend using it. It was so simple to catch and if you book early the prices are very cheap. It took us around two hours to get there and our hotel was about 10 minutes walk. We got to our hotel around five and dropped our bags and went for a walk around the area to see what's near. We stumbled across a beautiful opera house and the biggest shopping mall I have ever seen. We were amazed by the fact they had an entire building for women's clothing and a completely separate building for men's. We walked our legs off! It was very cold which was expected in january but it didn't stop us. The metro seemed pretty simple the layout was the same as the London underground but we didn't bother with the metro. We felt we would see more walking, and we did. We Visited the Sacre Coeur up Montmartre. The views were spectacular and the square is full of artists painting.
We walked from here back down which is a lovely walk because the streets are full of little shops and cafe's. We decided to walk to the Arc De Triomphe where we went underground to see the landmark up close. The detail and patterns were breathtaking and I would advise anyone to see it.
The last full day we had we wanted to see the Eiffel Tower and go up the tower to look at the views. The Eiffel tower has strong security but still keep an eye on your belongings. it cost eleven euros each and you can take the stairs but we were too lazy and decided on the lift. They have cafe's on the lower floor and gift shops but we were more fascinated by the fact they had an ice rink on there too!
We walked from the Eiffel Tower down to the Louvre and came across the lock bridge. The Louvre was huge! the grounds went on and on and the architecture was amazing. We didn't go inside because we didn't have a lot of time but just walking around the grounds is enough to be astounded.
Finally let's talk about the food... It was so tasty! It is pretty expensive but it's nice to experience having a meal and trying the pastries. You definitely have to try the macaroons too because they're out of this world!
I hope you enjoyed reading!
Have a lovely day...
