Paris is one of the most famous cities in the world and there are no shortage of Paris attractions. Millions of people flock there each year to experience some of the most famous attractions in the globe.
However, there’s so much more to the city than the popular attractions. In fact, it’s highly recommended that you get lost on your travels as there are so many hidden gems to be discovered.
Statue of Liberty
Before you book your hotels Paris France, it would be a good idea to familiarise yourself with the lesser common parts of the city. If you take a walk by the Grenelle Bridge, you’ll see there’s a statue of liberty. It may not be quite as big as the New York version, but it’s still an impressive sight.
Tour Paris 13
One of the main things you’ll want to look out for is the artwork around the city. Most recently, street artists in the capital used an apartment building as a canvas. The building is due to be demolished in 2014 and 105 artists were given a room each to decorate before it gets pulled down.
Some of the art painted on this building is fantastic. Of course it won’t be there for too much longer, but there’s plenty of less famous art to be discovered around the city.
If you’re looking for somewhere to buy unique souvenirs, Passage l’Homme is perfect. Potentially one of the most picturesque hidden gems available in Paris, it’s situated by Place de la Bastille and is where you’ll find plenty of locally-made crafts and clothing.
Ballon Air de Paris
See the city from a unique and magnificent angle via Ballon Air de Paris. A hot air balloon will take you high up into the air without actually flying away. It’s permanently secured to the ground so you don’t have to worry about getting lost in the air. You’ll fall in love with the amazing view from the top.
Jardin du Luxembourg
Finally you can go and visit the beehives at the Jardin du Luxembourg. This is an attraction many locals don’t even know about. The working beehives are responsible for the production of Parisian honey and visitors can even try their hand at beekeeping with lessons available at the school, which was set up in 1856.
Paris has so much to offer, but it is well worth checking out the lesser known attractions and the quieter parts of the capital. Even if you’ve been to Paris a number of times, there’s still plenty left to be discovered if you’ve never ventured away from the main attractions.
