It is a dream for every American to visit Paris as a first destination in Europe.
Many people get charmed by the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe, but only few people are able to see the life of Paris from the inside. We are here to give you some tips on how to pass a good weekend and enjoy the city.
It is true that there is something special in the air when you wake up in Paris. The best feeling is when you step outside, the flower shops open, the smell of the fresh croissants and coffee comes out of every single café you find on your way. Ah, those mornings when you are not in a rush and can enjoy some of those things from above.
The day just starts and of course you might want to visit some of the monuments and go through the main district towards Arc de Triumph and get impressed by the amount of luxury stores, design boutiques, posh buildings with marble entrances. Yes it is beautiful, indeed, but don’t lose your head on the way, because Paris today is not the same as in the epoch of Coco Chanel. You have to watch out for yourself and always keep an eye on your bag and all the valuable things you have with you, because robbers and creepy people are always waiting for some tourist to pass by.
Once you are done with the tourist attractions you can have a nice lunch in the Cafe Mode and enjoy some ecological food in a nice atmosphere. Food in Paris is always good, does not matter, if you are in a 5 star restaurant or just a bar downstairs, just go for the safe choice. Same goes for the drinks, because France is famous for its’ wine regions, vodka brands and other liquors, so you will not be disappointed by that and also will enjoy the style they serve it with.
Paris in the evening is a different story, because every place is lightened up, including bridges over the Seine river. All the local bars get full with people that are ready to gossip all night long. Before you go to the dark side, we highly recommend you to take a ride on the Ferris wheel on the Place de la Concorde. You will enjoy the city view from the sky!
Once you decide to go and check some places out, Tape Me recommends you Kong for the dinner and some cocktails followed with the little party on the top floor, or if you like Asian food you are welcome at Buddha Bar Paris.
Keep in mind that Paris is not a small city, so think carefully about your transportation and note that Uber App works perfectly fine!
