Luxury and Lovely Activities around Paris
A person could spend over a year or more in Paris and barely touch the surface of all delightful Parisian sights, sounds, and tastes that it offers. So, when I had to write about all of the luxury activities to do in Paris, I was challenged. There are easily a million wonderful things to write about, but I needed to narrow down this list. Here, I give you a list of some of the must-dos in Paris, plus some off the beaten path activities that will make your trip to Paris truly unique.
Champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower
Of course everyone knows a visit to the Eiffel Town is an obvious must-do in Paris. It’s a symbol of love that offers the best views of the city. So, why don’t you take it up a notch and make a toast to the one you love the most at The Champagne Bar? What could be more decadent than sipping on a glass of champagne on top of the Eiffel Tower with the city lights twinkling? The Champagne Bar sells chilled pink and white champagne, and you can never go wrong with a glass of either.
Picnic on Lover’s Bridge
Pont des Arts is a bridge right across from the Louvre and a hotspot for lovers, Parisian and from around the globe. Years ago, love birds started to place padlocks onto the bridge railing to show their commitment to love, and not surprisingly the idea caught on quickly. Now the bridge is completely covered with locks. It’s truly a sight to see and also a site to enjoy. Buy a bottle of nice wine, cheese, and crackers and have your lovers picnic on Pont des Arts.
