Why Paris is a Heaven For Art Lovers

Paris Is Much More Than It’s Nick Name, “The City of Love”

Whenever someone speaks about Paris, the first thing that hits the mind is its world-renowned heritage called Eiffel Towers and Paris’s famous nickname, “The city of love,” and that is the reason why my husband and I landed there on our honeymoon. Still, when we reached there, the first thing that caught our eyes was its beautiful architectural buildings and statues. Let me tell you that this beautiful city is blessed with amazing scenic nature and rich in art, history, and architecture. It’s a perfect place for art admirers. I have jotted down a few places that we visited.

Eiffel Tower

When we reached the Eiffel Tower, the giant spell-bounding Eiffel tower looked like a skeleton of metal projecting to the sky. Honestly, it looked like any other mobile tower in India, and my mind was bombarded with several questions like, why even people consider this metal structure as a symbol of love? Until I took a ride on a spectacular glass-walled lift and reached 274 m above the ground level, and Paris lay at our feet. The breeze grabbed us, and we witnessed the magical Paris with a bird’s view. The entire city was swathed with beautiful lights and had romantic vibes. The panoramic pics and maps, which can be found at various points at the top of the Tower, help you locate your position and get an idea of the directions and distances to major world cities. The shapes of the symbolic monuments of those cities are represented for easy understanding. One can easily compare the heights of every monument by the thin reference line.

Suppose you want a perfect picture of the iron beauty, then this the place for you. This place allows you to admire the beautiful tower and capture it in your camera in a perfect way. Situated across the river Seine from the Eiffel Tower, Place du Trocadero arguably offers Paris’s greatest view. A popular public space situated on the Seine West bank, Place du Trocadero sits on a hill. The Eiffel tower standing majestically on the opposite bank, offers the most picturesque views of Paris’ most iconic landmark. Even we set our tripod ready to bag the beauty in our camera.

Pont Des Arts Bridge

 

This pedestrian bridge is a must-visit for lovers and who love serene splendid views. It’s very popular, so be prepared for crowds. It was awesome to see hundreds of those love locks hooked on the bridge.

Seine River Cruise

If you are a person who loves to explore places by floating above the water, then don’t miss these floating glass-covered cruise drives. You can also experience proximity views of the iconic tower, but you can also see other renowned monuments like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Orsay Museum.

On the voyage, we even witnessed the statue of liberty. You must be thinking I am insane, as the statue of liberty is in the U.S, well, there is a replica of the statue in Paris. France gave the U.S. the Statue of Liberty in 1886; Americans gave Paris a smaller version of the same statue in 1889.

If you’re going for a Seine Cruise, opt for one in the evening. You will have the chance to see the Eiffel Tower lit up majestically in the Paris night sky. Watching the twinkling dancing lights on the tower is a must, so don’t miss it.

Louvre Museum

Louvre Museum is a national museum and art gallery of France. This museum will catch your attention from the entrance itself. The vast historic architecture of the Louvre and the modern glass design entrance gate surrounded by fountains and ducks give a welcoming vibe.

The Mona Lisa painting hanging on the wall of the Lovre entice many visitors. If you are an art lover or a historian, this place is heaven for you.

It has paintings, decoratives, jwellery, pottery, sculptures. In short words, the museum has every from every civilization to flaunt. I must highlight this. You need one whole day to explore everything inside it.

The Notre Dame

 

These Gothic cathedrals are another attraction of Paris. From here also you can capture a great view over the city.

 

Arc de Triomphe

Napoleon commissioned the arch in 1806 to commemorate his victories, but he was ousted before the arch was completed.

Disneyland

This fairyland took me back to my childhood days where Micky, Minnie, Donald Duck, Goofy, and many Disney characters came alive to dance with us. It was an incredible experience, and I loved this place a lot. We seized our moments with them in our camera and enjoyed many theme park rides. The beautiful day ended with the light show, which was simply magical. The stunning light shows and fireworks on the sleeping beauty castle will take you to a different wonderland itself. It was a one-day affair, but we enjoyed it like kids.

Sacré-Coeur Basilica

The Sacré Coeur is a basilica in the Roman-Byzantine style located on top of the Montmartre hill. The stunning landmark is known as the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris. You have to climb a few stairs to reach the top. The beautiful garden on both sides of the stairs will accompany you while climbing. The church has a beautiful interior and peaceful ambiance. Housed peacefully at the top of the hill of Montmartre, the majestic church offers one of the most amazing views of Paris.

Walking on the street of Paris is a feast for the senses. From beautiful buildings to stunning parks, it is as much for the art lover as the interested historian, engineer, architect, the glutton’s who love cupcakes, coffee, and many more, the glamourous people who love shopping in designer shops and loves fashion.
