The Most Alluring Places Of Paris

Are you thinking about where to go for a late winter vacation while your lower extremities are giving you pain from skiing overload? Don’t lose your head, there are still many splendid places to be visited without skiing equipment and a ski pass. What about a place like Paris? The city of decadent poets, Baudelaire’s Flowers of Evil, the city of Parisian riff-raff and noble kings will certainly get under your skin. Some say that if you ever visit Paris you’ll have to keep coming back because it casts a spell on you.

No matter if you’ve packed your things already and there have been airline tickets to Paris rustling in your jacket pocket or whether you are just in the phase of planning, we can help you unveil the most alluring places of Paris. So let’s go through your itinerary or let’s plan a new one!

Notre Dame Cathedral

Those who are keen on Victor Hugo’s the Hunchback of Notre Dame might agree that The Notre Dame cathedral is one of the most amazing Parisian places worth seing. You can be sure you will find your place over there as it can contain up to 9000 visitors.

Another interesting fact is that this architectonic jewel combines both Romanic and Gothic style in its architecture. The history of the cathedral tracks back to 1165. Its construction took unbelievable 182 years. The fact that the cathedral’s place has been connected with mystical religious cults over 2000 years is worth mentioning as well. And by the way, did you know that famous conqueror Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned and became a caesar right within its walls?

Louvre

Whether you are fond of modern art or you think that a glass pyramid of Lovre is a slap in the graceful Parisian face, you must definitely agree with us that this place is a must see matter. The breathtaking masterpiece Mona Lisa by da Vinci, an ancient Greek statue of The Venus de Milo or The Winged Victory of Samothrace (a headless statue allegedly coming from 180 B.C.) can help you understand the fact that human beings were able to work restlessly several years in a row before we invented television.

Basilique du Sacré-Cœur

Basilique du Sacré-Coeur is usually transalted as the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It’s located in one of the highest places in Paris so its snowy white building is visible wherever you are in Paris. Like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Sacré-Cœur combines two different architecures – Romanic and Byzantine style.
