At the horizon there is the 2014 holiday and you plan a Europe travel.
If you did not already do it, you don’t have to miss a visit to Paris.
The issue when you spend the holiday in Paris is the embarrassment you fill in front of wealth that assail you.
What ever which Paris you choose to visit: the touristic one, the historical one, the interested in fashion one, the one with bourgeois claims, the one of the bohemian artistic, the reality is that after your holiday you will shape your one alive and unforgettable Paris.
Paris is the city of the vast panoramas, with intimate dilapidated streets, official green spaces, quiet squares, this combination of fast and discretion being one of its eternal secrets.
There are so many turistic sights that probably, a usual holiday period is not enough if you want to see all of them and certainly you will come back sometimes.
