France, Paris – The city of love.
This beautiful country lives up to that name with its charming towns, chateaus and fine art! We really think it’s impossible for anyone in France to have a bad day with so much beauty surrounding you! If you’re looking for a romantic get away or just planning an anniversary trip to rekindle your love, France is absolutely perfect!
1. Climb The Eiffel Tower
Being one of the most famous landmarks in the world, the Eiffel Tower is a must when your in Paris. Get to the top for the sight of a lifetime! We suggest going at night as the Eiffel Tower has some gorgeous lighting which will leave you with an unforgettable experience.
2. Explore The Musee du Louvre
Art lovers unite! This is your place to be. Paintings from Vinci and other famous French artists are found here including the world famous Mona Lisa. Another good thing is that most areas have a certain theme, allowing you to visit the types of art you like most (classical painters, Egyptian art etc.).
Lovers Tip ♥ Beware of Pickpockets – although this place is beautiful, it is very busy – esp around the Mona Lisa. Watch your pockets 🙂
3. Visit The Notre Dame Cathedral
This place is the definition of enchantment – and the grounds are absolutely wonderful. It is incredible that people have worshiped here for over 800 years and it is a humbling experience. In front of the church is Point Zero, the geographic center from which all distances in France were measured also nearby is the bridge of love, where many lovers’ locks have been attached if they have not been taken down yet.
4. Experience The Le Puy du Fou
Fantastic day full of surprises and luckily one doesn’t have to understand French to enjoy the day. Get here early so you can make the most of the day as this is one popular attraction. Watch spectacular live shows of the Vikings with disappearing saints and sinking ships, Roman gladiators in the amphitheater, the most amazing bird displays you can imagine, and a moving castle! Take time to plan your tour from the program, shows fill up fast and can involve queuing, so its best to get there in good time!
5. Be Fascinated By The Carrieres de Lumieres
If you like classic music and classic European art, this is the thing to do. Amazing visual and musical experience where the lighting effects and sound will entertain you fully! This place is a spectacular audiovisual of both art and music, projecting famous paintings and artists to music. What makes this place so unique is the dark underground quarry, which has the feeling of being in a huge cave with magnificent flat walls.
6. Love The Sainte-Chapelle
A very beautiful gem in a big city and a stunning visual, musical, and spiritual experience. The stained glass reaches to the sky and is simply tremendous.
Lovers Tip ♥ see if there is an evening concert scheduled in the chapel while you are in Paris – a sublime and the transcendent experience.
7. Explore The Verdon Gorge
A river canyon that is often considered to be one of Europe’s most beautiful – and we don’t doubt that for a second. The water is a unique blue green and if your not too busy looking at the gorgeous water you can also spot lots of eagles in the sky!
8. Visit The Town Of Colmar
Beautiful town with lots of things to do! Take a boat tour, explore the shops and eat at fancy restaurants! This place is also referred to as “little Venice.”
9. Love The Town Of Annecy
Gorgeous blue green water with the charm of old architecture. Walk the cobbled streets overlooking winding canals and pastel-colored houses. The medieval Chateau d’Annecy is not too far from here either and it contains a museum with regional artifacts such as Alpine furniture and religious art, plus a natural history exhibit.
10. Walk The Falaise d’Etretat
If you are looking for a place to get lost, then this is it. Scarcely populated, Normandy is a visual splendor with the beach as its main attraction. The pebble beach is stretched beautifully with great waters to have a nice swim in 🙂
