The essentials of Paris
Although we like to propose places with charm, but different, if you visit the city for the first time you have to know the most emblematic places before discovering another of its faces. In Aerobús we make the list of the essentials of Paris if you travel to it for the first time. Take note!
The Eiffel Tower
The biggest symbol of the city, created initially to be exhibited temporarily in the Universal Exhibition of the year 1889: the Eiffel Tower. It has become an icon of the city, although initially it was not liked by all Parisians. If you visit Paris we recommend that you go up and contemplate one of the best views: it can be by the stairs or by the elevator. We recommend that you get your tickets in advance to save you queues, as it is one of the most visited tourist spots.
Notre Dame Cathedral
The Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the oldest and most important Gothic cathedrals in the whole world, which has been affected by a great fire that ended with a large part of the roofs and with the needle that crowned it. The construction endows the year 1272 and although it is currently closed to the general public, you can appreciate the exterior and how the reconstruction process evolves. An almost obligatory stop where you can breathe history.
Montmartre and Sacre Coeur
With the film Amelie and we could delve from the big screen and surround the bohemian atmosphere of this neighborhood, one of the most tourist of the entire city. You can stroll through all its streets and appreciate the atmosphere enjoyed by characters like Van Gogh or have a coffee in one of its hundred warm terraces. Crowning the area, is the Sacre Coeur Basilica, one of the most beautiful points in all of Paris, built in 1919, from where you can appreciate one of the most incredible views of the entire city. Inside you can see one of the largest mosaics in all of France, a crypt and the dome. We like to be surrounded by street musicians and artists.
The Seine and all the bridges
One of the most beautiful scenes you can live during your trip is to walk along the banks of the Seine, passing next to the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. On this tour you can also appreciate the majesty of the New Bridge, the Bridge of Souls and the Alexander III Bridge. Another option is to take a tour of the river during sunset or even at night, since the whole tour is illuminated and you can remember it as one of the best moments of the whole trip.
One of the nerve centers of the city is this square, surrounded by majestic buildings and with a large column in the center: the Vendôme column. It is a column built by Napoleon Bonaparte himself to remember his victory in the Austerlitz battle, impressive to see for its height and magnitude. In this square you will find some of the most exclusive luxury stores around the world.
Arch of Triumph
The most famous of all the arches built by Napoleon, with a magnitude of 50 meters high and one of the best viewpoints in the city. Many of the tourists prefer the views offered by this viewpoint than those of the Eiffel Tower. It is surrounded by one of the most impressive roundabouts, perfect for photography and that can only be crossed by an underpass.
The Louvre, the Orsay and the Pompidou
If you like to live the culture and want to visit the most famous museums around the world, Paris is the perfect city for you. The Louvre, the Orsay and the Pompidou are totally different from each other, both for their collections and for the buildings: while the Louvre sports a combination of historical building with the glass pyramids, the Orsay is located in an old train station and The Pompidou has one of the most avant-garde facades in the world. Although they all have a story behind them, we are convinced that there is one perfect for you.
In addition to these classic places that every visitor should know, there are some magical enclaves that also deserve their time. Among them we highlight the well-known Moulin Rouge, Lake Doumesnil, Place du Tertre or Victor Hugo’s House. If you want to know all of them, do not hesitate to have Aerobús on your trip, to travel quietly and safely. Don’t think twice!
