Let's Go Travelling: Paris
If you've been on my Instagram recently you will have seen that I was in Paris and Milan a week or two ago. I had such a good time and it was so nice to see some new places and relax a little. I spent 4 days in Paris and saw almost everything to see. I thought I would sum up the best parts to see in Paris so let's get started.
First up is the general tourist stuff. If you're lucky to be under 26 and within the EU majority of the popular sights are discounted or free. I'd recommend checking for each place but I managed to get discounts on everyone when I showed any form of ID. It's really helpful if you're trying to do it all on a budget. My favourite part has to be the Louvre Museum, we walked round there for probably four hours but it honestly didn't feel that long. There's so much to see and the museum has so many different exhibitions to offer there's something for everyone. They offer interactive audio guides incase you want to know more about each piece as you walk round.
The Eiffel Tower was another favourite of mine, we paid to go right up to the top and the view was just insane. It was so nice to see Paris from so high up. Until you get up there you don't realise how big the place is. After visiting all the sites we went and did some shopping. I would probably recommend the strip of shops next to the Arc de Triomphe situated in Champs-Élysées. They have shops like Sephora to even car shops. So if you fancy buying yourself a car after you've just gone in Zara then that's the street for you.
I did a fair bit of shopping on that street. I did find however that a lot of the brands there and ones that you get in the Uk as well. They didn't seem to have any brands that were based solely in Paris but the stock in the Paris stores is a little different to what we have in the Uk so it's all good. I picked up a fair few bits in H&M and Zara so expect a favourites post soon on those.
Food was another amazing part of the trip, my discovery of philadelphia cheese bites and my first glass of Aperol Spritz was heavenly. We did manage to head to a few restaurants that did amazing food. The best one had to be this little italian situated right by the Eiffel Tower called Relais De La Tour. It was magical to see the tower lighting up as we had our food. Price wise it wasn't too bad.
The main advantage of going somewhere like Paris what that everything was mainly in walking distance. We stayed quite far from the centre but it was easy enough to navigate around. We only used public transport when we went to Disney which if you have the chance to go do it honestly! I didn't think I was a massive Disney lover but it was so good. As long as you have some direction of where you're going you can't get lost.
