“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
First association is that Paris is the city of romance. But this is only partially true. Paris is not only attractive for couples, but also for lonely travelers. And in this article we will tell about the best attractions for everyone.
To start, it might be necessary to mention the symbol of the city. It is no longer possible to imagine Paris without the Eiffel Tower, despite the fact that it was built only in the nineteenth century. Nowadays tourists can get to the top of the tower by stairs and lift, and even have a dinner in the restaurant at the height of more than 300 meters. Another monument, making impression by its dimensions as well as by its shape, is known as the Arc of Triumph. Impressive sculptures adorn its pillars, while the names of 558 generals and the great victories are engraved on the top of the monument. The top of the monument is accessible on foot by a staircase of 284 steps or by a lift. And the fact that the Arc of Triumph is located next to the “the most beautiful avenue in the world”, makes this place especially attractive.
The Avenue des Champs-Élysées, in turn, is a perfect place not only for shopping, but also for enjoying breakfasts and dinners in the luxury restaurants and discovering something new in the local museums. That is why acquaintance with the city almost necessarily begins with a walk along this main capital avenue.
Moreover, this route will lead you to another important sightseeing such as the Tuileries Garden, which is opened to public since the seventeenth century. Nowadays, both tourists and locals spend time in this historical landmark relaxing and admiring sculptures.
What is more important, the garden is closely located to the Louvre Museum, having an area of 210,000 square meters including 60,600 for the exhibitions. It contains more than 380,000 objects and displays 35,000 works of art. Among them you can find famous paintings of Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
For evening’s entertainments you can visit the Moulin Rouge, which is known as the spiritual birthplace of the famous French Cancan.
In addition, the district next to Notre-Dame is famous for its fantastic restaurants and the most delicious cheese fondue , despite the fact that it is not more possible to visit the cathedral after a big fire.
For lovers of special attraction we also recommend to visit Disneyland. And as it is located 32 km from central Paris, you should have a full day to devote it to entertainments in the theme parks.
Summing up, we would like to point out that Paris gives tourists a chance to choose their own pleasures. It is a city, which endeavors to satisfy even the most capricious wishes of its visitors.
