Obviously the city of love♥ is the city you should visit when going to France (and if you have time you should also visit other french cities as Nice, Marseille…).
-The Eiffel Tower: Designed and constructed for the 1889 Exposition Universelle ( the World Fair in English). It was not supposed to be permanent when it was first built. It’s possible to climb up the stairs as far as the third floor. Going up to the top though is possible only using the elevator for amazing views of the city.
-Cathédrale de Notre-Dame: do you remember The hunchback of Notre Dame from Disney? He lives there. Besides that fact this cathedral was built in 1345 and was almost destructed during the French revolution . From the top you have lovely views of Montmartre and Arc du Triomphe.
-Musée du Louvre: even if you don’t like museums you should visit this one. It was once the palace of Paris and nowadays it’s the world’s largest art museum, you can find Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace and much more (up to 35.000 pieces).
-Champs Élysées: it’s Paris’ most famous boulevard from obelisk at Place de la Concorde to the foot of the Arc de Triomphe, it’s the perfect place for shopping (from luxury stores to more affordable ones). “Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Élysées,” which translates to “There’s everything you could ever want along the Champs-Élysées.”
-Sacré-Cœur (Montmartre): looks more like a white castle than a basilica. You’ll fall in love with the panoramic views from the Sacré-Cœur’s steep staircase, but for an even better photo op, climb to the top of the dome.
-Macarrons: these tiny Parisian cookies come in a hundred flavors, melt in your mouth and are neat enough not to crumb up your outfit. You can find them in many pastry shop, but I’ll recommend Ladurée.
-Mussels: even though it’s most typical from belgium you should try them. And remember to order them with french fries. Yummy!
-Crêpes: you shouldn’t leave Paris without tasting a crêpe. You can have them with nutella or sugar but you can also have salty crêpes, with jam (Brittany crêpes).
-Pain au chocolat: perfect for breakfast it’s a croissant filled with dark chocolate. Obviously you should also try normal croissants.
-Escargots (snails): before saying that you don’t like them you should try them because they are actually delicious. Tender snails, cooked in butter, garlic and parsley.
