    Explore Montmarte

    Montmarte has a special place in my heart because one of my favorite films, Amelie, was shot here. I even did a DIY Amelie tour on my own when I was in Paris. What’s in Montmarte? For a start, there’s the Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmarte which is gorgeous and has a breathtaking view of Paris. You can also see Moulin Rouge here which I thought is overrated. There are also a lot of cool shops, cozy cafes and interesting nooks and crannies in Montmarte. I love it.

    In Love with the Louvre

    Every time the bus enters the Louvre, I felt like I was thrown into a time warp where knights with their silvered armor stand guard on their white horses. There were no knights in shining armor of course but there was the famous glass pyramid like dome in the middle of the Louvre which was made popular by the Da Vincci Code movie.

    Before the Louvre became a museum, it started out as a fortress and after that became a resident palace before it was turned to a resident of the arts. The Louvre houses many arts, sculptures, installations, paintings and jewelry from the French Revolution, Napoleon, Louis XIV, major events in history, travel related, the art of portraiture and landscapes.

    Touring Paris On The Batobus

    It was the right time to try out the Batobus boat from Seine river to the Eiffel Tower. This was inclusive in the Open Bus Tour ticket that we purchased when we first got here. From River Seine there were 8 stops altogether starting with Champs Elysees which we had already visited the day before so we decided not to get off there.

    Opera Bastille

    Paris is one of those fascinating cities that you can visit and has a mind boggling amount of attractions. Opera Bastille (Bastille Opera House) is one of those attractions, it was designed by Canadian-Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott. There is a guided tour on offer or if you're a bit more advantageous you could catch the opera or ballet. There's traditional opera, symphony concerts and both classical and modern dance.

    Eiffel Tower

    When visiting Paris there is no doubt that one of the best places that you can visit is the Eiffel Tower, obvious, but for very good reason. This is not only a French treasure but it was once the tallest building in the world with at over 1000fts high. You can get a good view of Paris at the top and a glimpse of river Seine.

    Learn About The Mona Lisa at Louvre

    When you are in Paris your trip will not be complete if you don’t pay a visit the Louvre. This is where (some say) the greatest painting of all time, the Mona Lisa by Leonardo De Vinci resides. Why should you be told the tales about this painting while you can find out more for yourself whilst standing right next to the painting?

    The Louvre is a massive museum, you could easily spend a few days browsing all the exhibits on display so do leave yourself plenty of time if you are planning a visit.

    Be Entertained At Pompidou Centre

    If you looking to be entertained on your visit to Paris you should take time to check out the Pompidou Centre. This is great place where you can learn and see modern art that is done by the French people. The centre is suitable for both young and old and therefore a perfect spot to visit for anyone. You don’t need to be an artist yourself but you may leave being inspired by creativity.
