Le Weekend in Paris! (part I)

After spending the first week in Veneto (northern Italy) if you have read me, you might now we explore once again around Venezia and went to Murano Island... Weekend came by and we decided with my mama to take an airplane ride and go to Paris for a long weekend. So we did!

Now how to explore Paris in less than 5 days? I got ya', this was my third time in Paris, so I can say and brag that I know Paris subway map like the palm of my hand which made planning to visit the most famous areas easier and I also wanted to make it extra special because it was my Mom first time in France. A quick note we started visiting the areas that were far away from the hotel we stayed so on the last few days we did what I called "Paris in a circle" which means all the things you need to see and explore that are around the Eiffel Tower and closer to everything.
Here it is a list of the must see places in a short period of time and not miss anything!:

- Notre Dame
- Trocadero
- Arc de Triomphe
- Eiffel Tower
- Sacre-Coeur, Montmartre
- Versailles
- The Louvre
- Champs-Elysees
- Place de la Concorde
- Pont Alexandre III
- Les Invalides
- Mussee d'Orsay

Here it is the metro map and you will see the "circle" I am talking about, it doesn't get more easier than this!!!
We stayed at a Marriot hotel, a block from the metro station which made everything super fast to get and easier! We took the metro and headed early morning to Notre Dame:

This first day in Paris, we took it easy and spent most of the day in Notre Dame... we had "tea time" before dinner at a super cute coffee place:

The next Day we headed to "Trocadero" to take the most stylish photos 😁 with the Eiffel Tower in the background, later that day we walked towards:
- Champs-Elysees
- Place de la Concorde
- Pont Alexandre III
- Les Invalides
and - Arc de Triomphe...
As you can see you can explore a ton of beautiful must see places doing my "Paris in a circle map" (look above for metro map)

Pont Alexandre III


The Arc de Triomphe is right by the Champs-Elysees, so another one you can marked on your Parisian calendar trip right after you spent some time shopping through this beautiful avenue 😉

Hope this post was very useful and easy for you to visit Paris while you are traveling along Europe. And if you can print the metro map I have posted above would be amazing to mark everything you want to see in this beautiful country.
Stay tune because next we are visiting the most beautiful Palace in France: Versailles and then head to one of my favorite Basilicas: Sacre-Coeur, Montmartre.
