The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most visited paid monument in Paris and in the world. Has three levels, on the first and second level has restaurants and on the third level you will find an observatory deck.

Infront of the Eiffel Tower if you cross the street, you will find this magnificent Plaza. It’s good to visit it when it’s almost midnight while you are waiting the lights on of the Eiffel Tower, that every 30 minutes at night they open the lights of the tower and its very beautiful to contemplate it. You could also find there some souvenirs, something to eat like crêpes with chocolate or fruits, it’s so delicious.

Montmartre Town, have a visit in the top of Paris city the Montmartre town. Mostly of the people when they think about Paris they come up in their mind icons like Eiffel Tower, Arc of Triomphe, Notre Dame and so on.. but the truth a bout Parisian people is the original bohemian artist living in Montmartre. Imagine that typical Parisian wearing a beret and baguette under their arms or a typical Parisian artist with whiskers and that is the original Parisian and years ago they were living in Montmartre. 

The icon of this town is the Sacre Coeur, if you planning to go inside i recommend it to go on the top of this basilica, hundreds of steps to go up but it’s worthy once you’re upon, you will see the city of Paris and appreciate the view of Eiffel Tower.

Have a visit in Moulin Rouge, if you like to see the famous cabaret and the spectacular show of Cancan, i recommend to visit it. We visited Moulin Rouge inside and we had a dinner and watched the show, while you are having a dinner you could watch the incredible show with orchestra, the entrance is from 100€ per person above.


Galeries Lafayette

Is a Luxurious old style Gallery French department store. It will impressed you if you visit this Gallery, looks like your in a past century, the dome ceiling has an incredible architecture, there is also restaurants, bars and grocery stores and yes it’s an expensive store!!

So, this is was my scape to Paris, it was very short but intense.
