Paris, Je Promets!
I’ve spent 5 days in Paris. I wish I could say the things I did per day, but I really don’t remember all the details. We arrived at the hostel and started walking on the street until we found the Père Lachaise Cemitery (http://www.pere-lachaise.com/), where we saw Oscar Wilde’s grave (picture). We tried to search Jim Morrison, Chopin and others, but we didn’t have a map. After that, we decided to see The Bastille, which is close to the Cemitery.
the subway and go back to the hostel. On the same street we ate at a cute place, with jazz music and a marvellous three-cheese macaroni. On the other days we decided to check the museums: Louvre (http://www.louvre.fr/), l’Orangerie (http://www.musee-orangerie.fr/), Maison européenne de la photographie (http://www.mep-fr.org/default.htm), Guimet (http://www.guimet.fr/). The last one we entered for free, on the others we had a discount for beying under 26. But if you have European citizenship, you can enter in everything for free. I wonder why…
At night we also saw the Avenue des Champs-Élysées (http://www.champselysees.org/), Arc de Triomphe (http://arc-de-triomphe.monuments-nationaux.fr/) and the Tower (http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/) again, but at the top. The view is worth it, but I recommend using good coats if you are going on the winter. It’s awfully freezing. We saw the inside of 2 churches: Basilique du Sacré-Coeur (http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sacre-coeur-montmartre.com%2F&h=sAQEu8Km4), where you can not take pictures from the inside, and Notre Dame (www.notredamedeparis.fr), where you can take pictures. The inside is beautiful, especially the stained glass (picture).
I particularly like Montmartre very much. Over there you can see the Moulin Rouge (http://www.moulinrouge.fr/), Fromageries, you can find shops of macarons and places from Amélie Poulain’s movie, as Café des Deux Moulins, Maison Collignon, her carrousel and the view from Sacre Coeur ( http://www.sacre-coeur-montmartre.com/), where Nino appears.
If you are looking for a place to shop, Galeries lafayette (http://www.galerieslafayette.com/) is probably the best choice. If you are searching for a romantic activity, you should go to Pont-Neuf and Pont des Arts to place a lock with your love. Now, if you want something different I assume you should try Les Catacombes, an underground ossuary in Paris.
>> Our hostel: http://www.fuaj.org/Paris-Jules-Ferry I recommend bringing flip flops to shower because the bathroom is collective. I honestly did not like the kitchen because it has no oven, microwave only. And the breakfast should have more cold cuts (Paris has several cheeses, its a shame not to put them at breakfast)
