Travel, but travel with responsibility

One day in Paris

One day in Paris is for sure not enough to get to know the whole city and its perfidies, but it´s enough for trailing and drifting away in this city with character and flair.

After arriving in the early morning in the city center we met a friend, who hosted us for one night in her flat. We took our backpacks off in her flat and then she has shown us around her city.

Suggestion for a great Paris city walk:

We startet our tour accompanied with very nice weather at the Saint-Michel station. Walking along nice streets with little and cosy cafés, bakeries, flower shops and chocolatiers we ended up at the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris with its impressing and overwhelming architecture. There was already a big queue waiting for us in front of the entrance, but it didn´t take a long time for getting in and it was really worth it to wait a little bit. Inside the cathedral, I was really impressed by the huge colourful windows which were manufactured with a very high precision.

We continued our walk, crossing the River Seine and passing by more beautiful old buildings, reaching the Louvre. After a short stay, we continued through the beautiful Jardin des Tuileries, admired the Luxor Obelisk, passed by the famous Place Vendôme with the Colonne Vendôme and followed the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

Just following the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, at the end we found the Arc de Triomphe at the Place Charles-de-Gaulle, which is also very impressing. The weather became worse and it started already raining heavily. Hence it was not possible for us to go up and enjoy the view. But nevertheless, we continued our walk along Av. Kléber to Trocadéro, from where we enjoyed a great view at the Eiffel Tower. Walking through the Jardins du Trocadéro with it´s nice statues and crossing another bridge, we reached the Eiffel Tower.

By metro we went to the station Anvers from where we were walking to Montmartre. Here we took a deserved rest and ate something at the grass. At the top of the hill, is the famous Basilique du Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre located. Outside, in front of the basilica, street artists were presenting their amazing tricks with a football. We were roaming around a bit in this area and I really liked the flair of the narrow streets with their street artists, shops and cafés.

We brought the day to a close in a homy restaurant eating pizza and drinking wine with our friends from Paris.

The following morning, we enjoyed a real french breakfast with baguette, coffee and croissants :)
