And finally I made it to the most romantic city in the world as they say.
Well, I don’t know what to say about this, but it is definetly a beautiful city. I took the “Batobus” which works in the same way as a Hop-on/Hop-off bus but on the Seine River! – Its a great way to see some of the best spots in Paris, and in the meantime you can enjoy a boatstrip.
Of course, I had a look at the wonderful Notre Dame de Paris. After the disaster with the big fire in April 2019, just a month ago, I was pretty curious how “Our Madam” would really look like. Since I read “The hunchback of Notre-Dame” I always wanted to see it.
I was happy to see that from the outside its still Notre Dame with the two typical tower etc, but of course, the inside is a different story. You can’t go close, but you feel how the people are still impacted by this story.
After that I had a look at the largest art museum of the world – The Louvre. Even though I would love to see the “the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world”, the Mona Lisa of Leonardo da Vinci, I don’t want to wait more than 2 hours as a sign is indicating. So, I am enjoying the building and the site and take off to other spots.
the Eiffel Tower!
It’s really an cultural icon. More than 100 years old (it was build for the Words Fair in 1889), its unbelievable that it could have been constructed at that time. With 324 metres its the biggest building in Paris.
It’s a pity though that its enclosed nowadays. You need to have a ticket and go through security controls if you want to be just beneath it. As the most-visited paid monument of the world its a matter of security, of course, but it’s so sad that we need to protect monuments like this.This entry was posted in Allgemein, Europe, Paris
