t Half the World Away: We'll Always Have Paris

We'll Always Have Paris

Paris. A place synonymous to what perhaps is the greatest thing in the world. Love. And just like the memories left by Ilsa and Rick on the lavish Paris Hotels where they stayed, let's take a stroll along the most romantic and captivating places in France.

First stop, of course, one of the most popular monument in the world, the Eiffel Tower.

Built in 1889 by engineer Gustav Eiffel, the towering monument stands 1,063 ft. high and since its construction has accumulated over 200,000,000 visitors.

Just look at the romantic backdrop of the tower against the sleepy skies. A stroll with your loved one along the passageways of the park nearby will surely lit up the romance, much like the brilliant lighting of the tower. Accommodation from France hotels nearby are a great way to just enjoy the scenic presence of this tower.

Second stop, the Arc De Triomphe.

Situated at the western end of the Champs-Elysees, the most famous avenue with a streamline of nice hotels, the Arc of Triumph stands gracefully to the marvel of every passer-by. Truly a majestic view, the Arc is a favorite stopover for lovers at a lovely night walk.

Third stop, we'll go gothic at the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Better to stay at a handful of Paris Latin Quarter Hotels near the Cathedral, for one tends to become mesmerized by the beauty of this fabled cathedral. The church is enveloped in history bearing witness to the most memorable moments in French History. Here is where Napoleon was crowned emperor, where Joan of Arc is canonized and where the novel Hunchback of Notre Dame was conceptualized. A trip here would definitely bring a sense of antiquity and mystique.

Fourth Stop, The Louvre.
Supposedly, as the book suggests, below this pyramid is where Mary Magdalene is buried. Well, that's what Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown thinks so. In reality, the Louvre is the most visited and famous museum in the world.

Housing the greatest paintings known to man, especially my favorite The Virgin of the Rocks, is housed and exhibited. It is best to stride hand in hand with your special someone as you go along in the presence of the magnificence.

Fifth Stop, the mega Centre Pompidou.

A modern day brainchild on Europe's most sought after architects and engineers, this ultra-multiform complex houses libraries, music centers and many other faculties. A nice day out in front of the structure sure brings out the creativity in all of us. Students and scholars usually flock to this place for inspiration.

Seems like this would be our final stop, for now. There are many more places to go in Paris and perhaps staying in cheap Paris hotels would be the best choice for travelers.

As fate would have it, our heroes in the movie Casablanca would eventually part ways. But as the immortal words uttered by Humphrey Bogart, "We'll always have Paris." After all, with all the places one can go in the most romantic city in the world, two hearts would forever be bound by the radiant splendid that is, Paris.
