If you are planning to join the other over 50 million visitors to this stunning city and are wondering where to start, we can help. Coconut Club Vacations invites you to review with us a few of the best ways to enjoy the views in Paris like a true Parisian.
Get a birds eye view
One of the best ways to see this city is from an elevated level, but the city center has nearly no skyscrapers. Instead check out the city’s top attractions. For example, the Eiffel Tower offers amazing views spread out before you from the second promenade deck. Or perhaps, peek your head through the bell tower at Notre Dame, where your neighbor may just be one of the many carved gargoyles that protect the building. For this view though, you have to make it up all the steps.
Cross a bridge or two
There are many bridges the cross the Seine, the river that curves its way through the city. One of the most notorious ones is Pont Neuf. The bridge crosses an island that dates back to this city’s very beginnings. To say the very least the view from the bridge is dramatic. On one side the Ile de la Cite rests and to the other you will catch stunning views of the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.
Stroll the Seine at night
Paris is known as the City of Lights, and this is proven by walking along the Seine at night. Many of the city’s monuments are lit up and reflect beautifully off the gentle waters of the river. It really doesn’t get more romantic then an evening stroll here, unless perhaps you take one of the nighttime boat cruises.
Any experience in Paris is fabulous, you are in Paris after all. These authentic Parisian experiences will have you viewing the panoramas of the cityscape in awe. This is a city to get lost and embrace the moment with your friends or family.
