After our Top Paris Blogs blogpost we decided to contact some of the bloggers we mentioned and we sent them a small questionnaire about Paris. Our goal? To create a small “insiders guide” to Paris and to give to all our readers the possibility to get some useful info about Paris.
As I said, we sent 10 questions to the Parisian bloggers to get a better idea of what to do, what to see and how to enjoy the capital of France. The bloggers that kindly replied to us are the following:
- Eric from Paris Daily Photo
- Jean-Claude from Hello Paris
- Amy from God I Love Paris
- Adam from Invisible Paris
- Rachele from Altra Paris
- Richard from Eye Prefer Paris
- Doni from Girls Guide to Paris
- Kathrin from Paris Reise
- Marie Simon from Inside Paris
And now let’s see the questions we sent them and how the bloggers replied!
If there’s a city that better than any other is able to inspire lovers, chefs, and photographers, it’s Paris! The capital of France, with its museums, restaurants and cafe’s, is one of the most visited cities in the world.
One of the biggest problems that people will face when planning a trip to Paris is choosing what to do. To help you out with finding inspiration and useful tips we have already given you plenty of info about Paris, but this time we want to do more!
We want to show you some of the blogs and websites that we found on the Internet and think are a very good resource to find info about Paris. It doesn’t matter if you are Italian or Spanish, a geek or a couple in search of the most romantic restaurant, in this list you will find all the info you need for an amazing holiday in Paris!
From time to time I’m quite sure that you, like me, are just surfing the Internet trying to find some inspiration for your next trip; perhaps you’re looking for something that can leave you speechless, breathless, and completely astonished.
Some travelers base their decision on a friend’s experience, some of them search for images in Google to find something interesting, some may browse the travel blogs. My chosen method, however, is to search for amazing videos on YouTube and to draw inspiration from there. Having some experience in this, I really would love to share with you these fantastic videos about some destinations I think you shouldn’t miss.
All of these videos are made using a technique called ‘Time-Lapse’: recording whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that which will be used to play the sequence back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster (and thus lapsing). Okay, this is the theory; let’s enjoy the videos now!
Paris. City of light. City of love. Paris has many names and according to many it is the city with the highest amount of interesting things to see per square kilometer! Everybody who visits Paris wants to view the usual suspects; The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral and Arc de Triomphe. There is, of course, more to do and discover in Paris. This blogpost will sum up some of the hidden gems to be found in Paris.
1. Hôtel Carnavalet
Like all major European destinations, Paris is very old, and the history of this enchanting city is beautifully shown in Hôtel Carnavalet. From Early Paris – known as Lutetia in the Roman times – to the Medieval city, to the Renaissance and the revolution, everything can be found the the Hôtel Carnavalet. The museum holds a huge amount of paintings, drawings, photographs, artifacts and beautiful scale models of ancient Paris. Location on Map
A: Arc de Triomphe – This is one of many monuments that Paris is famous for, located at the tip of the beautiful and wellknown Avenue des Champs-Elysees.
It was built in 1806 as requested by Napoleon Bonaparte, who after the battle of Austerlitz has said to his troops “You will go home only under triumphal arches”.
This monument therefore has great historical connotation, at its feet there’s the tomb of the unknown soldier of World War I.
Ophidiophobics might be relieved to find that all Dublin hotel rooms boast a distinct absence of snakes in their bathtubs. How can we be so sure? The banishment of serpents from Ireland was one of the many great services to tourism performed by the legendary St. Patrick way back in the 5th century. Hence, the freedom to wash without fear is ritually celebrated in the form of Lá Fhéile Pádraig (St. Patrick’s Day), and is one of Irelands’ most popular exports. Particularly prevalent in Western Europe and the north-east USA, you don’t necessarily need to be on the Emerald Isle to indulge in such a worthy celebration.
You could, for instance, visit the centre of Catholicism itself. Rome’s St. Patrick’s Church, near Villa Borghese, opened on St. Patrick’s Day in 1911 and is the place to first confess your sins and be purged before hitting the town for some serious celebration. Rome’s Annual Celtic Ball – a black tie event comprised of a champagne reception followed by dinner and dancing – will be held in Corsia Della Donne. Alternatively, you could participate in the ‘all-you-can-drink’ pub crawl for EUR 20, with a good helping of Irish dancing and singing thrown in. A few Irish pubs to try are Druids’ Den near the Colosseum, Flann O’briens in Via Nazionale, and Sholars Lounge near Piazza Venezia.
Paris is a huge city but getting from one point to another is a breeze when you know your way around the public transport system!
I will explain all the options in Paris’ public transport system to you!
The best way I think to visit and discover a city generally would be by foot. Because Paris is such a large city, I think avoiding using public transport might not be the best option for this metropolis. When it comes to public transport, Paris has plenty of choice to travel comfortably: by subway, RER, bus, tram, taxi, taxi-bike or even by “Boat Bus” on the Seine river
Whether you go to Paris for 1 day, 1 weekend, 1 week or more, there are various packages and discounts available for transport tickets. Children below the age of 4 can make use of all means of transport for free, and children from 4 to 11 get 50% discount on all tickets!
Tickets have to be inserted in the gates to the subway and RER, but on the bus showing your ticket to the driver suffices.
The public transport system in Paris is divided into 6 zones, therefore it is handy to plan your travel before you go, to be sure to purchase the best prices ticket or card. Points you should take into consideration:
- The zone you are leaving from
- The zones you will be crossing
- The zone you will arrive in
