"Paris" Paris by sachara

Paris Travel Guide: 22,779 reviews and 56,523 photos

I visited Paris several times, with school, for work, but most of the time for leisure and pleasure. Everytime when I'm in Paris, I have the intention to come back within one or two years, but in reality it's not the case.

In Paris I love not only the famous areas and landmarks, but also the less known areas, the mixture of historical and modern architecture, the different cultures, the French and the cosmopolitain atmosphere.

During all the years I visited many places in Paris, like Montmartre, Quartier Latin, Chinatown, Belleville and many more, where I didn't take pictures in my pre-VT time.

In summer 2005 I made a pilgrimage to many of the places I visited during my first visits. It was great to see that some didn't change at all and others did. This time I took lots of digital pictures. Many you can find on this page. In 2010 I came back for updates and new discoveries.

    Hi Ali and thank you for an extremely informative Paris page. None of us can ever presume to know all there is to know about Paris, but when we combine our efforts, we are a mine of valuable information. Thank you for your fantastic contribution.

      Hi Kate, thanks for for visiting and rating my tips. Yes, there is so much to tell about Paris. During my last visit in 2010 I saw many other nice parts of the city. Did not take the time to do the updates yet.
