Traveling by train in France is more expensive than in other countries, that is why we chose to do it by car. This way, we had the chance to see the roads, pass by cities and towns, take pictures from inside the car and have freedom to come and go as we pleased.
Paris is the most expensive and touristic city I have ever known. Full of Brazilians and people from all over the world. I spent 6 days there and enjoyed it to the fullest, but it was not enough to know everything I wanted.
La Defense, the modern district of Paris. I’ve been there in 2009 and I was delighted with the contrast… the classic and romantic Paris from one side and the business one from the other and so close. The name is a tribute to the soldiers who fought for France in World War II. Today we would think that this name also could be to defend the money, because La Defense is the biggest financial center from Europe.
Go up on Eiffel Tower early in the morning is the best hour to avoid lines. Besides see the horizon, you should look at downward and watch the parisian’s routine at Champ de Mars. Choose a sunny day and get ready for the cold weather, if you go in the winter like me.
