Places to visit in Paris

Morning guys today I was woken up by some rays of sunlight. It was so beautiful eventually the summer will still come. However, I decided to load one new Blog Post up. And I am so excited because it is about my trip to Paris and which places are worth to visit. I thought I will share my thoughts about the places I´ve visit with you guys. First of all I lived with two classmates at a host family in Crimèe. I haven’t understood one word in French but luckily one of my classmates could talk a bit. But it was a really beautiful trip. Maybe I will write a post about the trip itself. Let me know in the comments if you would like that?

Paris

Eiffel Tower

Oh the Eiffel Tower was way too beautiful. It was so impressive. You had such a beautiful view from there. I would say it was the most beautiful attraction in Paris. Anyway here are some facts: He is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel who designed and built it. The Tower is 324 meters (1,063ft) tall and the square at the bottom is measuring 125 meters (410ft) each side.  There are three levels to visit I was at the second one. But I don’t think you have to go higher. I saw whole Paris. It costs me about 17€ if I remember clearly.

Sacré-Coeur

This cathedral was amazing. I mean I am not religious but it was a beautiful building. Here the facts: It`s a Roman Catholic church an a popular landmark. It is placed at the highest point in Paris. Obviously you can visit it for free. I visited at night. But at night there are often drunk somewhere near.

Moulin Rouge

Obviously I saw it just from outside but I think if you are in Paris you have to take a look at it. Moulin Rouge means “Red Mill” and it is a cabaret. The original house burned down in 1915. In 1889 it was rebuilt from Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller. Its marked with an red windmill on top. It is also known for the spiritual birthplace of the modern can-can dance. Today it is a tourist attraction offering musical dance entertainment. I am not sure how much it really costs but I heard something about 100€.

Notre Dame

Another beautiful church. I never ever thought I would visit that much churches but they are really beautiful. But you have to wait a bit before you can visit it. But it’s definitely worth it. You also don’t have to pay for it. It is a medieval Catholic cathedral. It`s the largest well-known church buildings in the world.

Palace of Versailles

Oh my god. That’s honestly one of the most beautiful building I have ever seen. And I also visit Schönbrunn Palace which was my favorite until now. Now I have two favorites. However I would suggest booking a ticket previously otherwise you will have to wait very long. The palace is placed about 20kilometers southwest of Paris. 1682 it was the centre of political power in France. It was the resides of Louis XIV. The ticket costs about 15€.

Louvre

Okay I am not a big fan of art museums but this was quite okay. It was huge and a beautiful and everyone found a part of the museum which was interesting. And although we had tickets we had to wait very long. So book your tickets also previously guys. Oh and Mona Lisa is very small and there are always a big crowd of people around her.  So there are the facts: It is the world’s largest museum and also a historic monument. There are nearly 35,000 objects exhibited. Sorry I have no idea how many it costs because we where free.

Arc de Triomphe

Last but not least we visited the Arc de triomphe. Very very pretty. But sadly we didn’t go on the top. It is one of the most famous monuments in Paris at the Champs-Èlysées. Which you need to check out if you are in Paris.
