The city of love
30.04.16 – 02.05.16
Our visit to Paris was to celebrate our 2-year anniversary and we stayed in the Hotel Derby Eiffel on 5th Avenue. Our balcony had a great view of the Eiffel Tower (as requested) and was only a short walk away from the famous landmark. Paris has so many sights to see, we only had four days there but managed to see as much as possible. The day we arrived, we explored the area we were staying in and discovered the most incredible bagel shop to have lunch called Bagelstein (highly recommend!). The next stay was our anniversary so we decided to visit the Eiffel Tower and bought tickets to the summit. It was so unbelievable high but so worth it, the views are absolutely amazing as you can expect! Our form of transport for the few days was the Big Bus, we have used this in so many cities to get around, it’s so easy to hop on and off! Other places we visited whilst there was the famous Louvre, Sacré-cœur and Arc de Triomphe. The Louvre was unfortunately shut the day we visited as it was a Sunday, nonetheless it was still a great landmark to see. On our final day we visit the Sacré-cœur which is a famous Roman Catholic church. We embarked on the thousand steps you have to climb before reaching the Church, and then stupidly decided to climb all the steps inside as well! The views are worth the climb as you see another angle of Paris different from the Eiffel Tower. Paris is so beautiful and has so much character, I absolutely loved our small getaway and would recommend it to anyone!
