So what is my true first impressions of Paris?
Mention Paris to anyone and you end up getting a mixed option.
-“Urgh, I hate Paris. It’s dirty and crowded and too touristy,” some people will tell you.
-“Oooh, it’s my favourite city in the world. It’s beautiful and romantic and has the best food in the world,” others will say.
While I don’t know if you’ll love or hate Paris, I do know it’s a city everyone should visit at least once.
I’m in Paris for the first time.
My first thought is that is big, spread out yet everything in sight. I could see the Eiffel Tower Notre Dame yet it was an hour walk away. I could see Sacré Coeur in Montmartre from the top of L’Arc de Triomphe yet it looked like it was so far away, teetering over the edge of Paris city limits about to fall into nothingness.
Of course, Paris is a walkable city. The metro helps keep the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre within reach, even if my feet are painful from the amount of walking .
I’m shocked that the landscape is so flat. Other than the hill that Sacré Coeur sat upon there were no hills, no mountains in the distance only haze.
Paris is known for being many things- the city of love and the city of lights,home to many famous artists. It’s a top tourist destination and a must-visit city.
