Paris – The City of Light

 

Paris is my favorite places to visit. I try to make it to Paris – even if for a few days – every year. There’s nothing better I like to do when in Paris, than to take a walk at night. They don’t call it the “City of Light”/”La Ville-Lumière” for nothing! It is simply breathtaking! Everything is bathed in a glorious, romantic light. The Eiffel Tower even puts on a 5-minute light show every hour on the hour, from sunset until 1am. Can you tell I’m in love with Paris? I can’t wait to go again this year.

If you go to Rome, you MUST visit the Colosseum. And when you are there, do splurge on the upgraded ticket for a tour of the uppermost tier. It is a tough, steep climb to the top, and there is no elevator access. But the views are worth the money and effort (and in my case, the aggravation of an old knee injury)!
