Now, we have talked a lot about memories and making sure that you are capturing them whenever you are in Paris, now let’s talk about one important thing that you are going to want to do when you are in Paris and that is getting your picture painted! Paris is filled with artists that are just looking to have their picture drawn and they are certainly one of the few cities that cater to these artists.
If you are walking down the street and you see a bunch of different artists lined up with their easels, why not just pose for them and get that beautiful painting done? Typically, they are reasonably priced and you usually only have to sit for around an hour, which is not long.
Getting your picture painted in Paris is a fantastic way to really get a feeling of the culture and look beautiful!
Taking a Photo Tour in Paris! Paris is the type of place that when you go, you want to take a ton of different pictures. You always want to make sure that you capture every piece of Paris and every memory on film – otherwise you will not be able to remember every single detail of this beautiful city.
Well, did you know that there are actually many different photo tours that you can take? Honestly, the last time that I went to France and Paris specifically, I went on one of these photo tours and they actually teach you exactly what to look for in order to capture that perfect shot.
It is definitely well-worth it … seriously, you should take a look at getting yourself on one of the many photo tours in Paris!
A New Paris Theme Hotel – Secret de Paris: 1Now that we have discussed the rooms, let’s move onto the lobby. This is actually a snapshot of the lobby and to me, the Secret de Paris is really taking a risk using this particular purple. It is one of those colors that you do not see a whole lot of but I can promise that it is actually beautiful. I loved to spend time here playing online casino on my mobile.
The lobby itself is actually extremely cozy and certainly one of those lobbies that you want to spend some time in. The place is decorated with bookshelves that hold books after books and to be quite frank, I think it makes things that much better.
You want a hotel that is beautiful and awesome to hang out in, the Secret de Paris is definitely that hotel!
All right, so we have found the hotel, the next stop is going to be Ile de la cite – this is where you will find Notre Dame, Hotel Dieu, Palais de Justice, Saint Chapelle (you have to go inside), Conciergerie, Square du Vert Galant and Point Neuf, Walk along the Seine River. This should all be done on day one.
