  • Sight-Seeing In Paris Sight-Seeing In Paris

    • From: Funkidivagirl
    • Description:

      Much of our time in Paris was spent wandering around just exploring (and lost!), but we did see some of the sites that you “had” to see while in Paris–but we also missed so many!  I’m sad about not seeing the Champs-ÉIyseés or Arc de Triomphe, but it just wasn’t possible to see everything in six days.  I guess that means that we just have to go back to France!  Here are some of the sites that we did see:

      Musée d’Orsay

      My family likes going to art museums.  We are members of Atlanta’s High Museum and often visit the art museums in New York City or other places when we travel, so we were excited to see art in Paris.   The first art museum that we toured in Paris was Musée d’Orsay.  This museum is in an old train station so even before we saw the art, we appreciated the beauty and design of the building.  There was a special exhibition of Manet’s early work and that was a treat.   A large part of the museum is dedicated to impressionist art by van Gogh, Monet, Degas, Gauguin—some of my favorite artists.  The kids were excited to see so many paintings that they recognized from books.   (We were not allowed to take photos in the museum.)

      Notre-Dame

      Notre-Dame was a short walk across the Seine from our apartment, so we had to see it.  While it is a pretty impressive structure from the outside, it is amazing on the inside.   Breathtaking.  Jaw-dropping. Even with all the tourists milling about making noise, there is a stillness and holiness that brought tears to my eyes.   The soaring ceilings, stained glass windows, chapels, altars and art affected me deeply and I must go back again.  I took photos, but photographs cannot capture the beauty of Notre-Dame.  If you ever have a chance, please go see this beauty for yourself.

      Musée du Louvre

      We couldn’t come to Paris without going to the Louvre and so we did on Bastille Day—along with everyone else who decided to take advantage of the free admission for the holiday.   But the line moved quickly and within 30 minutes we were inside one of the most famous art museums in the world.  I knew it was large and that we wouldn’t be able to see much; I thought maybe we could see a whole wing.  I was wrong.  The Louvre is enormous; we were there for several hours and I think we saw a hallway or two.  It’s that big.  We did make a point of seeing the rock star herself, Mona Lisa.   Despite the massive size of the museum, she was easy to find, we just followed the crowd.   She graciously posed for photos and then sent us off to admire her renaissance peers.

      Tour Eiffel

      It is actually the one time in Paris that I felt a bit unsafe because there were just so many people at the Eiffel Tower.  We also took the bus there and our bus tickets didn’t work when we boarded, so we were already a little off-balance when we arrived.   But we went right up to the structure, stood underneath and wowed.  It’s impressive.   I was glad we made ourselves go out after a long day of touring.  The twinkling light show was magical.

      Château de Versailles

      In retrospect we should not have gone to Versailles that day.  We were up late the night before (all week really) and we were tired from 5 full days of touring Paris. Versailles is big, really big.  Really, really big.  It is not the place to go if your feet already hurt before you get there.  Cobblestone streets are not for tired feet.  But it was our last day and if we wanted to see Versailles, it was do or die time.  And so we went.

      We saw the chateau gardens (very lovely) and The Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon and some of Marie Antoinette’s estate.  And grass and trees and more gardens.  All lovely.  We saw all of this by walking, walking, WALKING all the day.  At one point my son refused to go any further and just sat down.  It’s a lovely place, gorgeous!  And it was beautifully sunny day, perfect for walking and exploring the extensive grounds—but not for people who were on their last day of a 12 day high energy trip.  By the end of the day I was calling my husband Clark Griswold from National Lampoon’s Vacation; he brought his family all the way to France and we were going to see Versailles, dammit!

      Honestly even if we weren’t already exhausted, I think it would be hard to see all of Versailles in one day unless you got there very early (well rested of course) and used one of the transportation options offered at least part of the time.  Silly fools we were, we scoffed at the tram and golf carts.  Don’t make the same mistake.  If you plan to see the chateau, other buildings and grounds on the same day, use transportation in the form of the tram, a segway, a golf cart or bikes.  Biking seemed to be a nice way to get around. You cannot walk all of Versailles in one day without injuring yourself.  Do not try.  Also, it might be a good idea to bring your own lunch unless you plan to eat at one of the restaurants.   Several of the snack bars ran out of food.  Check out my rant video:

      Seeing the Arc de Triomphe for the first time made me a bit misty eyed. I'm not sure why, as the Eiffel Tower didn't even have that effect on me. However, it was one of my Paris memories that I'll remember most. Seeing this iconic monument for the first time.

  • My visit in Paris! 3 weeks, 5 My visit in Paris! 3 weeks, 5 hotels!

    • From: Loulouwolff
    • Description:

      The title might stir your attention... Why wuld she stay in 5 different hotels?! The answer is simple : September in Paris, no vacancies, especially when you book your hotel 3 weeks before leaving...

      I had only ONE condition : it had to be cheap, and if not cheap, not expensive.

      So, I started to look for an hotel... After an hour looking for "Cheap Hotels in Paris" on Google, I found a website called Explorotel. And this website pretty saved my life, and if not my life, at least my trip. They have the usual search by dates, but also by prices, location and number of stars. Great! 

      The first hotel available was the hotel France Albion, a cute 2 star hotel with high quality standards, yet low rates. This one was available for my first 3 nights in Paris. Cool, because they have a special 3 night package which makes the price even lower. This hotel is located

       close to "Notre Dame de Lorette" metro station, which is not far from Montmartre, and also from Saint Lazare. By the way, I discovered the store called " Citadium", where they have toooones of fashion clothes (ok, not the cheapest, but if I spare money on the hotel, I can spend more on clothes! :P Girls...) While staying at this hotel

      Second stop, Hotel Annexe for 3 nights, here again 3 night package. What I really loved about this hotel was the "only girls" staff that was very friendly, especially Magda and Diane, the receptionnists. I was looking for a great shopping spot (yeah, again...) and the recommended either Le Marais or rue de Rivoli, where you can find pretty much everything. The hotel area is great too, many restaurants and cafés nearby where I met some nice french people. Perfect budget hotel for solo travellers I must say.

      Third stop, Hotel Parisiana. This time for 4 nights. I didn't like the district so much at the beginning, but the hotel was great, and they gave me tips on how to make the most out of my stay there. I went on Rue de Strasbourg, which is, I assume, the African borough of Paris. I did my nails there and bou

      ght some cheap make up. It was easy to roam the city from there, as Gare de l'Est is kind of a transportation hub.

      Fourth stop, Astruc Elysees next to the Monceau park, for 2 nights. The website said it was not far from the Arc de Triomphe, yet it was a little further than what I thought but it was OK for me to walk a little after a great "Daube de Boeuf" (Beef with sauce) at "La p'tite Lili" restaurant. The hotel is a small and cute establishment, with a very caring staff. They had Segways for rent, so guess who tried one? :D

      Last but not least, I stayed at the Hotel de L'Alma, 3 nights. This hotel was probably my favorite because of its proximity to the world famous (US famous...) rue Cler, this typical french street, with its genuine bakeries, cafés... I had a great time strolling there, drinking hot chocolates... Yummy! 

      To sum up, next time I'll book my hotel too late again because it was much fun for me meeting all these people. And buy a bigger suitcase... Or find a boyfriend that can carry my luggage!

      All these pictures were taken on the same day in Paris, France.

       

      Picture 1 (The Not-so-Dark Alley) -

      When my Dad and I were wandering the streets one day, my dad decided to go down a street just for fun, and it happened to be a dead end. As we were exiting the alley I took this picture.

      Picture 2 (The Most Awesome view Ever) -

      This panoramic view of Paris was taken from the very top of the Eiffel Tower, and with the telescope peeking through on the side, I thought it looked cool.

      Picture 3 (Never...Ending...Stairs...) -

      This picture is a picture of the stairs inside the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Its a horribly large number of stairs, and many people had to stop somewhere along this narrow spiral staircase to take a break.

      Picture 4 (The Tower of Power) -

      This picture is of the Eiffel Tower in Paris on a cloudy day. I took this picture as we drew closer to the Tower. It may just be me, but with the clouds in the backround, this tower looked as though it was the base of an evil genius's plot to overtake the world.
