We were on our way to Greece, had a two day stopover in Paris and decided to make the best of it. Our First Time in Paris was wonderful! We hit the usual touristy spots which made for the best Instagram-worthy pictures. We booked a four-hour tour by electric bicycles. It's called the Paris Charms & Secrets tour – I highly recommend it. The bikes are easy to get used to and ride around the city. Here are 7 of the beautiful spots we visited.
The Palais-Royal Garden is found right in the center of Paris not far from the Louvre Museum. It's a peaceful spot to go for a walk, have a picnic or find a bench and read a book.
Paris is known for it's beautiful bridges that cross the Seine River. One of the most famous ones is Pont de Bir-Hakeim. It's decorated with many statues, and people come here for the incredible view of the Eiffel Tower. This bridge was also featured in the movie ‘Inception'.
Saint Sulpice is a Roman Catholic Church and the second largest in Paris. It is well known for its role in the best-selling novel ‘The Da Vinci Code'. It's absolutely beautiful inside and The Great Organ is one of the largest in the world!
Pont Alexandre III is one of the most extravagent bridges in Paris. Bronze statues of lions and nymphs sit at each end. Many movies, videos, and other events often take place at this bridge.
We rode our electric bikes to the Arènes de Lutèce. This ancient theatre could once seat 15,000 people.
Paris is a great city for walking. The Seine River runs right through and is perfect for walks along the river.
Last but not least, The Eiffel Tower. After seeing the iconic structure all my life in movies, tv, reading about it in books, it felt surreal to actually visit for real. The most famous landmark in Paris.
