Paris attracts over 47 million visitors each year
…and given this great success, London, Berlin and New York would love to be in Paris’s shoes! Paris is everyone’s city of art and luxury and remains true to its reputation. Just look at the creation of the Foundation Louis Vuitton. Paris is the second global destination and is the leader in the number of conventions. With the Grand Paris (Greater Paris) project, the French capital is improving transportation networks.
You will visit the best of the galleries, explore the capital’s secret gardens, Saint Julien le Pauvre, la Place de la Republique. There are plenty of exhibitions with selected pieces, including paintings and sculptures and eat éclairs like no others. Have lunch in a pleasant restaurant by the Tour Eiffel. Drink coffee on a sunny terrace in Saint Germain des Pres. We will travel to Versailles and shop at “Galeries Lafayettes”

One week in Paris walking
My first visit to Paris I had the chance to stay for a week and it wasn’t enough. Paris invites you to comeback even for short-breaks. France has always been my favourite country. Being able to talk French really helps besides it’s home to many Portuguese expats. However, Paris is one of the most expensive cities in the world but there are ways to save. As a tourist, I disagree. Underground isn’t expensive and walking is free and the best way to discover beautiful coffee shops and all Paris has to offer.
Nonetheless, I add Portugal, England, Italy, Turkey and Vietnam to this list. In all them, I lived and experienced life as a local.
