Bon Jour!

View from the top of Eiffel Tower, brilliant blue sky over the Arc de Triomphe, sleek design of the Abercrombie Store, royal sculptures at the Louvre, the magnificence of Chateau de Versailles…I can go on and on about PARIS, its breathtaking art and unique architecture.

Also, let’s not forget that Paris is considered one of the top fashion capitals of the world and hence, we should all learn and benefit from this stylish city as and when we can. Parisians are most experienced in fashion, and are always aware of the absolute best and most recent style trends.

So in this post here, Im going to talk about my three-day trip to this city of love and I hope it serves as a guide for you all.

Paris for us (me and my husband) started from our hotel at La Defense which is the major business district of Paris and contains city’s tallest high rises. Within two hours of checking-in at Pullman Hotel, we were out of our room and on our way to see the Arc de Triomphe, placed beautifully in the centre of Champs Elysees. The Arc was built by the great French king Napoleon as a symbol of victory to parade his army through it, thus the name Arc de Triomphe.

If you are a shopaholic like me, you just cannot skip going to Champs Elysees. Home to stores like Louis Vuitton, Banana Republic, GAP, Abercrombie & Fitch, H&M, Zara, Sephora, LongChamp, Hermes, and Bvlgari; Champs Elysees is a dream come true for all. ❤

As we all know, France is known for its wine and cuisine and undoubtedly, no holiday is complete without satisfying your taste buds. Hence, nothing could stop us from indulging in their savouries and trying out the French delicacies.

We began our second day in Paris by heading to Louvre Museum. With nearly 35000 pieces of art from pre-history to the 21st Century, it is almost impossible to see everything in one day at Louvre. We commenced our trip at Louvre from the Greek side, moving on to Italian and Egyptian pieces and finally the remarkable French paintings which ofcourse included Coronation of Napoleon, John the Baptist and Monalisa by Leonardo Da Vinci. The interesting thing about Louvre is that the Art and Sculptures here cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

When you stand on top of the Eiffel Tower and look at the beauty and magnificence with which Paris is built, you wonder what is stopping you from spending the rest of your life here. The Eiffel Tower, named after the engineer whose company designed and built it, is the tallest structure in Paris. The lifts operative from the day the tower was built, make your ride up to to the summit smooth and fast. If you wish to have a romantic date with your partner, don’t forget to make a reservation at 58 Tour Eiffel (restaurant), located on the 1st floor of Eiffel Tower.

Your trip to Paris is not complete without a visit to Chateau de Versailles (Palace of Versailles). As per the history that goes with it, Louis XIV shifted the residence of the French imperial to Versailles from Louvre until the royal family was forced to return to the main city in 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. This beautiful Palace is an icon of French Architecture. The palatial gardens developed tastefully, the hall of mirrors, the king and queen’s private chambers, the luxurious dining hall, all of it are a must see.

All of us have our reasons to visit Paris, be it our love for art or fashion, to see the Eiffel Tower or for a romantic getaway with our partner, but there is no doubt that a lifetime in Paris isn’t enough to appreciate the beauty of this city.
