Wow, Paris was just amazing! I definitely didn’t get to spend enough time there and I am devastated about it! There was so much to see and so little time. But that just means that I will have to go back ASAP. We decided that since we only had a day and a half in Paris, that we would only do the major sights.
Obviously we checked out the Eiffel Tower. The apartment that we were staying at was only 2 blocks from it, but unfortunately without a view. It was absolutely stunning, and so much better in person! We decided that we would climb the stairs versus waiting in line forever to take the elevator. We ended up only making it to the second tier, but the sites were enough to make the whole trip worth it. You could see the entire city and it was gorgeous. If you don’t mind the hike, the stairs are so worth it (and cheaper too!).
The Arc de Triomphe was really pretty. We didn’t go up on that one sadly. But it was centrally located next to all of our favorite shops, so it was worth the walk over!
I highly suggest the river cruise. It is a great way to see all the important parts of the city from the boat. It gives a little snippet of each monument! I thought it was really cool to see all the main sites just on the little ride!
The Louvre was awesome from the outside (little hint: the Louvre is closed on Tuesday’s, the only full day we were there). So we did not get to go inside, but the outside was gorgeous. I think it worked out for us though because there weren’t as many people around, which meant less people in our pictures!
Notre Dame was incredible! I really wanted to climb up to the top of the bell towers but we didn’t make it there in time. I loved how there was so much detail all over the church, both inside and outside. I definitely recommend checking this out next time you’re in Paris.
Even though we were in Paris for just two days it was such an amazing experience! I had such a great time and I seriously cannot wait to book my next trip there! (This time I’ll spend extra time there!) If you’ve been to Paris before, do you have any hidden secrets that I need to check out? Let me know!
