Walking from Louvre to the Champs-Élysées

Our trip to Paris was a short one, but luckily for us, much of Paris’ must do’s is all within walking distance from each other. Another lucky thing about Paris, is that you will never tire of their beautiful tree lined boulevards, their cobbled streets, nor their beautiful architecture which seems to be constant throughout the entire centre of the city.

Discovering the Louvre:

The Louvre, the largest and since 1989 arguably the most iconic looking museum in the world.

If you are planning on making a visit to the epic museum on a trip to Paris (which you definitely should) you firstly should work out what it is that you want to see, this place is sprawling so if you try and see everything, you are in for a very long day and risk your brain turning into mulch. Obviously there is the Mona Lisa, a must do but unfortunately as predicted by anyone, is an extremely popular woman, so getting close is near enough impossible.

Zoom is your friend.

Top Tips:

  • Explore all the themes that you want to see but where you can try to avoid the crowds
  • Don’t forget to take a break at the many cafes throughout
  • Obviously don’t forget your camera. Otherwise you will regret it.

And the main top tip, don’t lose your floor plan as you will get lost without it.

Also the Louvre at sunset is not a bad thing to witness if you manage to time it right.

After the Louvre you may as well take a walk and clear your head after a day of cramming in information.

The festive season turns out to be one of the perfect time to visit Paris, as the lights are aplenty.

Nearly the entirety of the Champs-Élysées was lit up in lights and full to the brim with Christmas Market stalls selling wine, cheese, bratwurst, sweets and waffles (not at the same stall obviously).

With the overwhelming aroma of the surrounding food we inevitably gave in and stopped at one of the stalls, for a life changing Croque Monsieur crepe.

And walked all the way to the end of the stunning boulevard to see this masterpiece…

I don’t think you can really tire of this city. Or take enough photos.
