Paris Day Two: Eiffel Tower, Great food, Great weather

Paris Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Moulin Rouge, Holiday, Summer, Romantic tripGet ready to be bombarded with loads of photos in front of the Eiffel Tower. It’s just the best background. It automatically makes every single picture look more awesome. Anyway, let’s get back to our journey: We woke up early in order to get at the Eiffel Tower in time, to avoid the queues. However, they opened the lifts to go to the top after 12pm. So My advice: if you do want to go to the top (which I recommend), go there at around 11 pm so you don’t have to wait too much to see everything. Prices to go up: 9€ / adult – middle. 15€ / adult – top. Waiting in the queues can’t be avoided.. there’s just too many tourists. Just bare that in mind and try not to be bothered by it. We spent there around 3 hours (or more). After that we stayed in the park nearby to enjoy our fresh sandwiches. There was a huge projector with the French Open Final with Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep. We stayed there a bit just because we are great supporters of Simona, as she represents the country we’re from.

After staring at the Eiffel Tower from all possible angles and gardens and places.. we went further to Montmartre. This place was full of interesting shops, beautiful cafes and, the main attraction: Sacre-Coeur. The shops are a bit expensive as they have exclusive products, the cafes and restaurants are comparable to the UK and the entrance to Sacre-Coeur is free.

The final stop was Moulin-Rouge. After that we walked around the city for a bit. It was almost 11 pm and it was still nice and warm. It reminded me of the summers at home. It seemed like the city came to live. More locals were out, drinking on a terrace, talking in their beautiful french and laughing. A lot of laughing. I didn’t want to go back to our hotel. But we were tired.. and I wanted to rest for the next day. We were planning to go to the Louvre. But in the end it turned out to be much more…. to be continued..

Asteptati-va sa fiti bombardati cu o sumedenie de poze cu Turnul Eiffel. Degeaba, orice poza arata bine cu el in cadru. A fost si primul lucru pe care l-am vizitat in a doua zi, asa ca am fost fresh si dornici de pozat. Ne-am trezit devreme tocmai ca sa evitam cozile. Dar degeaba am ajuns noi mai devreme, ca au deschis lifturile pentru a urca in varf doar dupa ora 12pm. De aceea va recomand sa mergeti in jurul orei 11, ca sa nu asteptati prea mult pentru a urca in varf (asta daca vreti). sunt doua optiuni: va opriti la mijloc (9€ / adult) Sau continuati pana in varf (inca 6 €, in total 15). Dupa vizita, ne-am pus in parc de unde puteam sa admiram frumosul turn, in timp ce am mancat putin. Intre timp am observat ca au pus un ecran imens pe care era proiectata finala de tenis intre Sharapova si Simona Halep. Plin de romani mandri, plini de steaguri tricolore.. a fost un sentiment frumos! 

Urmatoarea oprire a fost cartierul Montmartre. Un loc cu stradute inguste, cladiri cu arhitecturi deosebite..si lucrul meu preferat: multe flori. Am pierdut vremea plimbandu-ne printre stradute, uitandu-ne la cateva magazine cu produse speciale iar in final am ajuns la Sacre-Couer. Desi nu era voie sa faci poze, toata lumea isi ascundea aparatul sau telefonul pe sub mana si pozau non stop. De ce? Nu stiu. Noi am ales in schimb sa admiram arhitectura, sa ascultam corul care tocmai incepuse si sa ne bucuram de moment, pe moment. Intrarea a fost gratuita.

Ne-am odihnit apoi savurand o masa copioasa la un restaurant local, cu mancaruri bio. Din pacate n-am retinut numele localului si nu l-am gasit online, insa oriunde am mancat in Paris mi-a placut enorm. E adevarat, am si cautat localuri aglomerate, cu mancaruri gatite, terase aranjate. In medie plateam aproximativ 30 € / persoana mancare si bautura. 

Cu burta plina ne-am indreptat inspre Moulin Rouge unde Dan ar fi stat la un show (sau doua) dar cineva n-a fost de acord. Deja se facuse ora 11 seara si parca orasul se trezea la viata. Multi localnici erau afara, pe terase, eram inconjurata de o armoa de parfumuri de la fetele gatite de iesit in oras. Franceza lor dadea impresia ca aveau cele mai intereante discutii. Doar ca tot ce intelegeam eu era ‘Qui Qui’. Era perfect, cald dar nu prea cald, imi aducea aminte de serile cu colegii de liceu in centrul vechi in Baia Mare, cum stateam noptile afara si povesteam. Era vremea perfecta si compania perfecta. N-as fi vrut sa plec la hotel insa eram amandoi prea obositi. Si planuisem o gramada de lucruri pentru urmatoarea zi.. iar Dan mai planuise ceva ce aveam sa aflu abia spre finalul zilei…
