On our trip there was my husband and I for a 3 night photography break in the city. I will give a brief description of places we visited and my view on Paris.
This was the second time we have visited Paris, We love Paris and could go back again in the future. That view of the Effiel Tower would bring you back to Paris alone.
We flew with Easyjet from Luton, London and paid around £150 return for the both of us.
Airport transfers - We used a company called Royal Transfer at 110 euros return from CDG. The man was efficent and pleasant and highly recommend this company if you are considering taxi transfers.
Metro- We bought a pass for how many days we were there best way to get around the city and felt safe at all times.
Hotel - We stayed at Hotel Des Artes in Montmarte area located in a quiet area.Nice rooms, pleasant staff amd highly recommend staying here cost was 100 Euros per night.
Effiel Tower - We already purchased tickets for the tour beforehand in the uk. Skip the line Tour with some history about the tower etc. Very good guide and excellent as it saves time by not queueing up.
Food - We mainly ate on the go as we are normally busy with our photography. We were mainly on a budget break this time. coffee etc from vendors roughly 3 euros. rather then paying 6 euros to sit in a cafe.
A couple of restaurants we did visit and highly recommend.
Le Cafe Saint Honoure - located near to The Louvre. The special duck they had was gorgeous. Loved this place and cant believe we found it by chance.
La Boite aux Lettes - located in the Montmarte area lunchtime special 3 course for 18 euros fantastic value and highly recommend.
Long Exposure shots
# Night trails from Bir - Hakeim Bridge
#Carousel shots from around the Effiel Tower area.
# Wheel shots by the concorde fountain.
#The bridge where the locks are on at Notre Dame.
#Night shots of The Louvre(dont go the night the Louvre is open late too many tourists around)
Most disapointing was the fountains that werent on Concorde and The Effiel Tower ones.
Photography in general - Apart from the obvious tourist places
Places that are worth a mention.
While everyone is taking photos of the Sacre Coeur nobody notices the red building to its right. Take a good luck at the building and angle your camera right and you will see why.
Le Palais Garnier Opera Building 10 euros each. Loved this building is very good for photography espically the grand staircases.
Spiral staircases in the Arc de Triomphe.
Bir Hakeim Bridge very unique bridge for street photography.
Loved the Pont Des Arts bridge for the love locks very good again for street photography.
Paris is a wonderful city for Photography and hope to be back soon.
We took alot of pictures in Paris and its going to take a while to edit them all. If you want to follow us on facebook we have a page if you want to like us would appreciate that.
