"Spend more than just a couple..." Paris Favorite Tip by danmcf

Paris General: 1,809 reviews and 2,160 photos


Favorite thing: Spend more than just a couple days. There's so much to see and do. Take a dinner cruise on the Seine. You'll get to see this wonderful filigree and bronze castings on one of the many bridges you go under. Here's a picture.

Fondest memory: Our first view of Paris stepping up & out of the Metro in the Bastille and walking the short 2 blocks to our hotel. It was about 8pm and we had just stumbled into one of the most 'Happenin' areas of the city. Such a vibrant mix of activities, my wife said it was so much like the French Quarter in New Orleans (I then suggested that it may actually be the other way around - New Orleans was actually so much like this).
we spent next day walking from our hotel all the way across town to the Eiffel Tower, taking in the I'le de la Cite along the way.
