Cannes is so enchanting that from the moment you step in the town, you’ll feel like a movie-star on a holiday. After all, it is home to the Cannes International Film Festival– where its all about the glitz and glamor in the name of film-making.
I’ve always wanted to go to the French Riviera; with its gorgeous beaches, lovely weather, glamorous people, and tales of thrills and excitement depicted in films and books– especially those old classics and Bond movies. So I made a trip to Nice, and had the time of my life!
If there is one place I absolutely cannot miss while in Paris, it’s Disneyland. I just can’t resist the opportunity to be a child again– take pictures with my favorite cartoon characters, ride awesome roller coasters and feast on huge cotton candies.
Almost everyone I talked to before my trip to Paris suggested a trip to the Château de Versailles. Words used to describe it were ‘beautiful’, ‘breathtaking’, ‘magnificent’, ‘grand’… that was enough to make me allocate a whole day to visit the palace.
How do you spend a week in summer in Paris? My plan was to hit the most popular places first, and then make my way to the rest of Paris and beyond. I’m glad to say I’ve experienced Paris, and had a ball of a time.
The words cheap and fast are hardly associated with Paris. Here are a couple of steps I took to ensure that I did not get caught in the crowds or spend too much money– it made my planning so much easier. Time and budget wise, I kept on track!
It’s the icons, the landmarks and authentic Parisian experiences that made my trip to Paris wonderful– Doing everything in this list evoked that sense of wonder and I can now say, “I’ve been to Paris.”
