Paris Travel Agent Expert

Most everyone considers Paris is the most romantic city in the world - a place that naturally makes your heart leap and dance. And it’s not just because of the Eiffel Tower. It’s because Paris holds a magic - one that you won’t find in any other city. That is why I enjoy my job as a travel agent specialist for Paris. For many people, dreams of visiting Paris begin with their first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower or an old postcard with views of the Seine River. Anyone can see photos and imagine what it must be like to walk along those streets and admire those sights. However, you cannot compare the vision with an actual trip to Paris. With its beautiful architecture, world-famous art galleries, endless cafes and romantic walks along the river - there are so many reasons why you should visit Paris. In fact, it's one of the most visited cities in the world. An estimated 25 million people escape to Paris yearly.  Paris offers views of  Gothic cathedrals that are still beautifully preserved today. Paris is more than just a city. It’s romance, mystery and everything wonderful – all rolled into one.  Therefore, it’s not surprising that Paris is a dream for many travelers. As a travel agent professional for Paris, I can guide you to the best places to stay, eat, and visit. 

Parisian Food 

There is no better place to experience the best of French cuisine than in Paris. From fresh oysters and snails, to delicious crepes, steak frites and cheese fondue, you’ll find incredible food at every turn.  You’ll also want to sample the baguettes, pastries and all the other delicacies that have made Paris famous. One of the most popular dishes in Paris is the Coq au Vin, a rich stew made with wine and mushrooms.  Another dish you won’t want to miss is Steak Tartare, which is made with minced steak, raw egg yolk, herbs and spices. These dishes are must-try entrees. You’ll also want to visit one of the many world-famous patisseries. Delicious French pastries like macarons, eclairs and tarts are found in almost every Parisian bakery.  Savor  high-quality coffee in every café in Paris as well. Café du Monde, Café de Flore and Cafe des Deux Moulins make the coffee culture in Paris second to none. 

The art galleries 

The Louvre is one of the most famous art galleries in the world, with historic masterpieces by artists like Picasso, Monet, and Van Gogh. You can also see the famous ‘Statue of the Orient’ (also known as the ‘Venus de Milo’) at the Louvre.  Visit the Musée d’Orsay - an old railway station that now houses some of the most famous artworks from the Impressionist period. You’ll also find the Musée National Gustave-Flaubert (the museum of the writer of ‘Madame Bovary’), a small but very interesting museum.  The Musée National du Moyen Age (National Museum of Medieval Period) is also a must-visit. You’ll find beautiful artwork from the medieval period here. 

Therefore, strolling around the city will leave you in awe. You can find examples of Gothic architecture at the Notre Dame de Paris, as well as Renaissance architecture at the Louvre and Baroque architecture at the Sacré-Cœur Cathedral.  While in Paris, you’ll naturally want to visit the Eiffel Tower. The famous Paris landmark was built for the Universal Exposition of 1889, but it still stands today as one of the most popular structures in Paris.  You’ll see a great view of the city and the Eiffel Tower  from the Trocadéro terrace - a great place to take pictures. You can also visit the Sacré-Cœur Cathedral for panoramic views, which is perched high up in the hills of the city. It’s a steep climb up to the top, but it’s well worth it! 

The French culture 

You can learn about the history of Paris, French art and architecture at the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay and other museums. If you love reading, visit the English-language Shakespeare and Company bookstore, located on Paris’ left bank. This is where author Henry Miller once lived and wrote. It’s now a very famous bookstore that sells secondhand novels. 

The romance 

If you want to visit the most romantic city in the world, you can’t go past Paris. From walking along the Seine River to visiting the Louvre and gazing at the Eiffel Tower, Paris is full of romantic scenery.  Stroll down the famous ‘Lovelovelovewalk’ along the River Seine, and see the incredible architecture and landscapes of Paris from a different perspective.  If you’re visiting Paris in the winter months, you can go skating on the Seine River to experience a truly romantic moment. You can also take a cruise down the Seine River or visit the Musée du Louvre and gaze at the famous ‘Statue of the Orient’ (also known as the ‘Venus de Milo’).  You can also visit the Jardin des Plantes, which is a beautiful botanical garden in Paris. Isn’t it time to reward yourself with a Paris holiday? As a travel agent specialist for Paris, let me introduce you to this magical city. Give me a call today so we can create a trip that meets all your expectations for the perfect holiday.

Best Trip Ever because of Blake
Blake was with us the entire trip from the beginning till I walked back in my house. He was so kind and caring about our trip. He got us all sort of amenities such as early check in and late check out, champagne in our hotel, breakfast daily and extra nights for free. I am planning my next trip to Europe and I will be using him definitely. Thank you Blake
