Paris, France

Probably everyone's dream destination, it's hard to not be enchanted by its charm.



One of my favorite things to do in Paris is walk around the streets, admiring the city's amazing architecture and lifestyle. There is so much to see by just walking around, so make sure you have at least 3 full days to enjoy this gorgeous city. 

The Avenue des Champs-Élysées summarizes the Parisian charm.  About 14 minutes walk from there, you will find this lovely boutique hotel called Bradford Elysees. Service was impeccable, rooms were large for Parisian standards and they had refreshments all day available and free for guests. The hotel is located at the 8th arrondissement, which I really enjoyed since it's very well located and not tons of tourists. Right across the hotel, don't miss having dinner at the Bistrot Marloe (10 Rue d'Artois, 75008 Paris). You will love their food and also such a friendly service. I was seating there for hours, enjoying my delicious meal and just didn't want leave. It seems the restaurant is closed during the weekends, please make sure to check online before heading there. 

Great tips​

I would suggest to buy 10 passes of subway ticket. You will save a little money and less hassle of having to buy it all the time

There is also train/subway tickets for 3 days, which you can use as much as you want and everywhere. Makes it very comfortable.

You will need your subway tickets to go in and out of the station. Make sure not to lose the one you used to get in.


The Trocadero is a good spot to see the Eiffel tower. The metro station is also called Trocadero.

Disneyland Paris: great option to go, especially if traveling with kids. They have two parks and many of the most popular rides from the Disneyworld Orlando parks there to be found. 

Things to see​

La Basilique du Sacre Coeur: go in the morning and walk around the neighborhood as well. Many artists used to have their "ateliers" over there and you will see a lot of artists around. Rue Foyaltier has huge steps, very cool to see and walk up.

Centre Pompidou: Costs only 3 Euros if you want to go up to see the view. Otherwise it's around 12 Euros for the whole Centre Pompidou, including the view. My tip: avoide the queues and buy the tickets with your credit card on the vending machines inside.

Louvre Museum: double check  when you are there when they are open until late hours. This might be a good option for you to see many of the sights most of the day and enjoy the museum during the late afternoon/evening.

Notre Dame Cathedral: it was built between 1163 and 1345! Just gorgeous!!!

Jardin du Luxembourg: one of my favorite parks in Paris. Beautiful!
