You know, I sometimes think, how is anyone ever gonna come up with a book, or a painting, or a symphony, or a sculpture that can compete with a great city.
Because you look around and every street, every boulevard, is its own special art form and when you think that in the cold, violent, meaningless universe that Paris exists, these lights.
I mean come on, there’s nothing happening on Jupiter or Neptune, but from way out in space you can see these lights, the cafe, people drinking and singing.

Or you love Paris, or you hate it. 4 days in Paris
Paris is a really romantic city, but if you have already been you can choose Vienna, which is one of the best cities we have been after Paris, of course.
Sometimes you need to think why a lot of people every year choose it for a holiday or just for a short trip.
You need to go to Paris for understanding how it is beautiful, and also this city can give you different ways to love it.
Why don’t go for a short day trip out of Paris? Just 45 minutes away from the big French Capital there is Champagne. The name will say something to you already.
Champagne is a nice place where relax and take a short break, trying the typical product, the Champagne.
I will confess to you the truth. The first time I have been to Paris was just for a study holiday in a college. After that, after a few years, I decided to come back with a person I love and I have decided to spend it with him (Toti).
We decided together to go for the most romantic holiday in a lovely place. We were over there in the Xmas time, where Paris give for us the best as it can, with all dressed up for Xmas time and full of sparkling lights.
This is just my opinion about Paris, I love it, but is clear to think a lot of people talk about Paris like an unsafe city, dirty and without nothing better than other European Capital.
But, do you know which is the secret of every trip abroad? Travel with someone who has your same passions, and also is hungry like you to see and explore the World.
