It is impossible to see all the sights when going to Paris for a weekend. But two days of staying here is enough to feel the eternal celebration of this delightful city. “A holiday that is always with you” is how Ernest Hemingway called Paris, having settled in it in the 20s of the last century.
When visiting Paris, be sure to visit the Eiffel Tower. You do not have to climb up, for this there is an elevator that will take you to the observation deck. On a clear day, the panorama of Paris is visible at a glance. By the end of the day, take a walk to the top of Montmartre, to the Sacre Coeur Temple. Before dusk, Paris is especially beautiful in front of your eyes. Walk around Montmartre, visit the Place Tertre, where artists usually gather. They will paint your portrait here for a few francs.
After that, you will find yourself in the area of Pigalle Square, which is considered a “nest of debauchery”, where sex shops, peep shows, cheap electronics stores and fake leather goods, famous rock and roll and jazz concert halls reign, etc.
Tours to Paris necessarily include a visit to the Louvre. After you get acquainted with the masterpieces of world art, walk under the Arc de Triomphe “Carousel”, then through the Tuileries Garden, Place de la Concorde, passing the Round Elysee Square, walk along the Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe. To find yourself in the futuristic “Defense” area, you can take the subway near the Arc de Triomphe. In the so-called “Parisian New York” from the roof of the “Great Ark of Defense” – a skyscraper repeating the Arc de Triomphe, you can see almost half of France.
Among the obligatory routes for tourists: walks in the vicinity of Saint-Michel Square and the Latin Quarter, at the foot of Notre Dame with a climb to its bell tower. Shopping in Paris, even if your wallet is not so full to make expensive purchases, will leave an unforgettable impression. To take a look at the windows of famous shopping streets, second-hand bookstores – you should not give up on this. Be sure to take a ride on the Seine on the “river tram”, the so-called “fly ship”. With the onset of darkness, the searchlights of the tram glide across the surface of the water, illuminating the embankments with a mysterious light.
