Hello, I'm Colm Hanratty from Hostelworld.com. If you want to know what the menu seems in the french capital are free, when the Eiffel tower sparkles just like this and what are the best ways to get around. Go nowhere because here are 10 things you need to know about Paris.
While it’s tree-lined boulevard, charming cafes and endless art galleries, Paris is one of the world’s most breathtaking cities located on the River Seine, it seems everywhere you turn just know their landmark take a picture of. It’s also perfect for couples because as we know, it’s one of the most romantic cities in the world. Now, here is the first of those 10 things.
Paris is broken up into 20 arrondissements. Each one has its own characteristics and neighborhoods and varies in size. And when walking around the city to see what arrondissement you’re in, simply look at the street signs. And for the best view of Paris, come here to butte Montmartre in the city’s famous Montmartre. It’s also where you'll find one of the city’s top attractions, the Sepracor.
Getting around the french capital is easy. The city’s underground system known as the Metro is extremely efficient. And because there are stops everywhere, you’re never far from a station. There’s also a network known as the—which is a very convenient stop throughout the city on this up rated by larger trains. When buying tickets instead of buying individual tickets for single journeys, buy a carnet or book of 10 as it work so far cheaper.
Another great way to get around the city is one of the things. They’re called a Vélib bike. Now, the way it works is this. You have to give your credit card details as security. After that then you have to pay a subscription fee which is one euro a day. Then there is the rightful charges.
The first half an hour is free the second half an hour is one Euro. The third and half an hour is three Euro, and every half an hour after that is four Euro. So basically, two hours will cost you seven Euro. But there is a way to beat the system. Since the first half hour is free, if you keep on using the bike for any of those of less than 30 minutes, you dont have to pay anything whether in the subscription fee.
As this is the French capital, patis is quite a busy city. But the good thing is is that there are lots of parks and gardens for relaxing. This includes Jardin des Tuileries in front of Musée du Louvre parked in Champ de Mars under the Eiffel Tower and Jardin du Trocadero across the river from us.
It’s probably the best one of all of Paris’s garden is Jardin du Luxembourg in the 5th arrondissement. As you can see, it’s a great place to just chill out but it’s also got some charming parks to work there and its home to Palais du Luxembourg.
If you are watching this video and you haven't bought your trip to Paris just yet, here’s a tip. Plan your trip around the first Sunday of the month when the big museums are free. This includes Musée d'Orsay the museum of Museum of Modern Art at the Pompidou Center, and the one of all, Musée du Louvre.
So that means, if you visit even just two of these museums, you’ll save yourself almost 20 Euro.
Dividing Paris in two, the River Seine is an attraction in its own ways. Make sure it relaxes on its banks, admire the landmarks along us and the prettiest stock process.
The best way to appreciate the Seine is by going on one of the boat tours but make sure to shop around because some were open top summer and some are more expensive than others.
Along with all, with its top attractions, Paris also has some really cool neighborhoods worth checking out, De la Concorde of the Seine is full of quaint narrow streets as does the Right Bank north of the Seine—is the city’s gate quarter while Saint Germain in the 6th and 7th arrondissements is one of the city’s most charming districts.
Arguably the most famous of all of Paris’s neighborhoods is Mont Martre which is north of the city center. And in the past, artists such as Van Gogh and Picasso would live here. Today, it’s full of all kinds of shops and cafes.
Shopping is a popular past time in Paris and there are lots of goods places to do this. The Champs-Élysées has many recognizable brands as does Rue de Rivoli in the Right Bank. Also in the Right Bank, there are streets like ‘Rue Sévigné and Rue Pierre’ where you’ll find more alternative shops.
Held every Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Porte de Clignancourt in Northern Paris is where you'll find one of the city’s best known flee markets and here you can pick up everything from leather jackets to CD’s.
When it comes to eating in Paris, certain areas are known for starting cuisines—in the 3rd arrondissement is where to go for culture food. And Rue de la Huchette in the Latin Quarter is full of Greek restaurants. Belleville in the north east of the city is full of Asian restaurants while if you want to try typical French food, visit Rue Mouffetard and Rue — also in the Latin Quarter.
A great place to try French cuisine in the Latin Quarter is the — they’ve got different set of menus that are really good value and here you can find famous french specialties like less cargo or the right normal snails.
If you wan to socialize in a true person why don’t we go in bar hopping for the night, grab yourself some cheese, some wine and spend the night relaxing somewhere along the River Seine such as key to let it turn out right here behind the Notre Dame Cathedral. Cheers!
But if you are intent on sampling Paris’s night life, the area around Place de la Bastille is a good place to go.
Climbing 24 meters into the Persian sky, the Eiffel Tower is the French Capital’s most famous attraction and you will go to see it during your stay. But make sure to visit it again at night when it looks even more beautiful.
And once it gets dark, every hour on the area from 1AM or 2AM in the summer, the Eiffel tower spark for five minutes just like this.
