Love is in the air in Paris

Savouring Parisian food as well as other cuisines is a delight in Paris with a wide array of restaurants. Couples can also enjoy a wine tasting with hundreds of vineyards in this city. When checking out restaurants, bistros or bars, prepare to be served with fine wines that you and your loved can relish.
Who says historical sites are boring? In Paris, viewing historical architectures and sites can be amazing and breath-taking with your family and loved ones. Who wouldn’t miss the Eiffel Tower in Paris? How about the Louvre Museum? Another romantic experience that can only be synonymous to Paris is to take a relaxing cruise in the Seine River and view the amazing landmarks mentioned plus the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Be stylish in more ways than one
To make the most of a Paris getaway, tourists shouldn’t just savour its romantic ambiance but its reputation for being among the fashion capitals of the world as well. For the fashion and brand conscious, shopping is not just an option but an essential in Paris.
This is should no longer be difficult to comprehend since Paris is home to the popular brands such as Hermes, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, etc. For these and other designer brands, tourists can wander through Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore or Avenue Montaigne.
However, more practical but fashionable finds are also within reach in department stores and shopping malls such as Champs Elysees, Carrousel du Louvre, Val d’ Europe Shopping Mall, and La Vallee Village Shopping Mall, to name a few.
And for tourists who happen to visit Paris during one of their biannual sales held in summer and winter, they should be lucky to enjoy up to 80% discount even on designer brands. They should be mindful though, in wearing their most comfortable clothes and shoes, being practical in spending, preparing for the huge crowd, and avoiding the peak hours.
Engaging in fashion related activities in Paris doesn’t always have to mean splurging. Galleries Lafayette holds a free fashion show every Friday that locals and tourists can witness for free.
These suggestions may make couples as well as families and other groups consider Paris as their next romantic and stylish getaway. However, it will always be best to plan the tour in advance by researching about this city to squeeze in as many blissful activities as possible.
