Paris is a destination that has never attracted me, I wanted to find out what beauty people were talking about, I went there without expecting anything and ready to criticize every single comma, inceve, I changed my mind, I fell in love with Paris, not only for the historical monuments and the history that one breathed walking in the Parisian streets, which reminds us so much of our Rome, but the perfumes, the croissants, the wine, the shops, the views, everything made perfect the city that I have always excluded from my destinations.
It has been two intense days, but with a backpack on your back, everything is feasible. Surely it is impossible to admire everything related to the history of Paris in 2 days but if you have numbered days like us you can take advantage of it and get some ideas from here.
Arrival at the station (we took the train from London – Paris) for those interested in taking the train, we took the fast train, it took about 2 and a half hours, I recommend taking it well in advance because it can cost definitely a lot.
Strolling along the Champs-Elysees with a high tourist effervescence, you can stop for breakfast, shopping in the beautiful shops.

Very characteristic, the area presents itself with the urban aspect of the past, surrounded by squares and small alleys that characterize it. The historical function of the neighborhood did not determine the name it bears, that of being the center of studies, and it is here that the Parisian university has been based since the 12th century. There are many restaurants offering typical French local cuisine. We tried everything from French cuisine and were fully satisfied.
There Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris it is a splendid example of Gothic architecture. Strongly desired by Bishop Maurice de Sully, it was built between the 12th and 14th centuries (1163-1345). Main place of Catholic worship in Paris is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited monuments in the world.
