Guide Paris visit

There are 20 Arrondissements in Paris, basically counties I’d say.

Paris is also a world leader in food, art, culture, fashion, luxury, and design. And of course, it’s home of many of the world most iconic sites — including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame, and Sacré Cœur. The city also boasts one of the best public transportation networks and it’s considered of the most walker friendly cities in the world. I miss the metro even though it was a pain sometimes.

So, in short, it’s a city that’s not to be missed.

Arronds 1 – must see! Tuileries, Place de Vendôme, place de la Concorde. During Christmas time there are the Marche de Noel. So cute, and it’s literally never ending. It is also here where you will find the Grand and Petit Palais. Where usually there are super interesting expositions like the Louis Vuitton I went with two princesses of mine.

Arronds 2– Etienne Marcel and Rue Montorgueil Food Market plus ( textile industry)

It was here where I found a huge textile industry too, mate. I bought so much fabric, and I have had some pretty cool ideas on how and where to use it.

Arronds. 7-The Eiffel Tower: Called La Grande Dame en Fer, or the Grand Iron Lady, you see it from anywhere you’re positioned in Paris. Originally built as an engineering wonder for the Exposition of 1889, the design and art nouveau touches were controversial at the time and still are, it’s better to be seen in the evening than the afternoon . Every few years, 60 tons of paint are used to repaint it…and being French, in 3 different shades to highlight its soaring beauty.

 It is also the arrondissement where Karl Lagerfeld lives. 

Follow the beautiful Quais past some of the beautiful monuments : 

-the Pont Alexandre III, 

Invalides, the Grand Palais on the Right Bank to the Musee’ d’Orsay, Musee’ de la Monaie, Louvres, Notre Dame and Ile St. Louis. Sunrise or sunset along the river is simply unforgettable. 

Musee d’Orsay: metro solferino. Take a nice stroll in this area, it is indeed very pleaseant.

Get off on the metro line Alma-Marceau at the end of Avenue Montaigne (frontal view of the Eiffel Tower). 

Flawless style and class. Walk along the broad and elegant Avenue des Champs-Elysées, you’ll discover a different world of luxury boutiques displaying Paris’ world famous fashions. This is the place to see and be seen, so sit back and enjoy some people watching from one of the cafés lining the street .
