my very long post about my trip in Paris :
just pictures taken by a true Tourist so, nothing exeptional, but i want to post them for me as well. this way, i know there will be a place i could find them easily :)
Notre Dame de Paris: i couldn’t stop singing the DISNEY’s Hunchback of Notre-Dame while visiting it :D the building is more beautiful from outside than inside imho. too crowed. i was more moved by the historical symbol the building is, than its decoration... but the rose window is very VERY impressive!
the rose window... my pic doesn’t give it justice :/
the Cemetery of Le Père-Lachaise: because i wanted to see the tombs of Jim Morrison, of Edith PIaf, of Molière, and OF COURSE, of Oscar Wilde :D and you know what? i put some lipstick and i kissed it, like the tradition asks it hehe
i visited as well the Cemetery of Montparnasse to find the tomb of Baudelaire <3
The sainte-Chapelle: a small building in two parts. the first one on the first level is dark and not very impressive. but when you reach the second level... my first reaction was “WOW!” The stained glasses and the ceiling... of course, there are too many people to truly enjoy it, but the place is very VERY beautiful and unique. a must to-see!
it looks like lace... so delicate and beautiful
The Saint-Martin canal and the Arsenal port: it’s like the hill of Montmartre, a very nice place if you want some nature and peace, but there, without tourists!! a nice walk by the river and many boats... a little part of the country but in town. very lovely!!
The Museum of Orsay: a fantastic experience. a small museum (in comparaison to Le Louvre) and each piece is just beautiful and moving... if you have to visit just ONE museum, you must visit this one!!
Van Gogh - his paintings are the ones that impressed me the most. you can almost see his inspiration and his urge to paint. you can see the brush strokes and the little piles of paints... so vivid! very beautiful!!
Le Louvre: i visited rather quickly, fatser than the Orsay even if the amount of artifacts is much bigger, but you can not visit Le Louvre in one day so i decided the paintings i wanted to see. that the thing i didn’t like... Le Louvre feels like a supermarket for paintings.. for real! too many paintings to trully appreciate them...
as you can, a lot a LOT A LOOOOT of people in front of Mona LIsa. i tried to reach the first row and i succeded!! i looked at her during long minutes... :)
i can not post ALL the pics but here a bunch of some of my favs
Montmartre Hill and its basilica: if you walk around the basilica and try to avoid the tourists, you will find little treasure, like the oldest and only working mill in Paris, or the famous stair or Montmartre, or vines and country in the middle of Paris... i LOVEd this district <3
the last mill working in Paris. it was surrealist and very lovely.
... but around the Basilica Sacré-Coeur, a lOT OF PEOPLE and more inside of it!
now, random places : LE JARDIN DES TUILERIES
LE MOULIN ROUGE and very ~~art-nouveau decoration for the Subway
The Opéra Garnier, where the famous Ghost lives :)
MACARONS !!!! (i tasted the strawberry one, the lemon one, and the caramel one... expensive, but delicious <3)
the two most GORGEOUS shopping center in Paris, with two wonderfull glasss roofs : Le Printemps, and Les Galeries Lafayette!! i visited them just for the glasses roofs, i bought nothing but took MANY pictures of these wonders <3
the most pretty: LA TOUR EIFFEL
and the very strange church De La Madeleine, which looks like a greek temple from the outside, but is a gorgeous renaissance church inside <3
voilà !! it was a blast and i loved every minutes of this trip!
i hope that you will all be able to visit this city one day as well <3
