Photo Tour through Paris with Divergent Travelers!
When you are asked to think of a magical city, what is the first city that comes to mind for you? For me, it’s Paris. The city is beautiful and full of iconic landmarks that will leave you breathless. You can easily spend a couple weeks here just wandering the streets and taking it all in. I was lucky to visit Paris last Fall as the brisk winter air turned the leaves and created a fulfilled Fall atmosphere. The following photo essay will take you on a walk through Paris and give you a sneak peek into what this iconic city can offer you on your next visit to Paris.
** Where shall we wander to first? **
** Stroll on the Pont Neuf Bridge- the oldest bridge in Paris to cross the River Seine. **
** Place Saint-Michel is a popular square in the Latin Quarter near the River Seine. **
** Visit the Lock Bridge which displays thousands of locks placed by lovers over the years. **
** Join the masses and admire the Mona Lisa in the Louvre Museum. **
** Pay a visit to the gargoyles at the Notre Dame Cathedral. **
** Take the bus to Place de la Concorde. The site of the execution of Marie Antoinette. **
** Admire the faces of the fountains while you make your way around Paris. **
** Mingle with the Artisans that setup shop on the Left Bank. **
** Visit the courtyard of the Louvre Museum and photograph the infamous glass pyramid. **
** Admire the timeless furniture at street side shops in the Latin Quarter. **
** Get up close and personal with the Arc de Triomphe. **
** Hop the subway to the Montmartre District and the Moulin Rouge. **
** Hike up the hill to see the Sacre Couer and then admire the view of Paris from above. **
** Pause for a moment at a café and enjoy some wine. **
** After paying a visit during the day, visit the Eiffel Tower at night for a treat. **
This is a small, small sampling of the wonders that this city can offer you on your next visit. Plan for an absolute minimum of 4 days and let yourself get lost in the beauty that Paris has to offer you.
