Dieci motivi per visitare Parigi

Dieci motivi per visitare Parigi non sono sufficienti ad elencare le bellezze e la magia di una metropoli europea che è stata la Capitale dell’Impero napoleonico, i cui fasti sono ancora visibili nell’arco di Trionfo sugli Champs élysées e nei “bottini di guerra” artistici ospitati al Louvre. Visitare Parigi in lungo e in largo è semplice e comodo grazie alle sue molteplici linee metropolitane, proveremo perciò a sintetizzare i motivi per i quali è sempre una buona idea visitare Parigi.

1. Parigi è la città dell’amore.

Il romanticismo della Senna che la attraversa, l’eleganza dei suoi palazzi e il verde dei suoi parchi, la rendono una città nella quale passeggiare mano nella mano è quasi obbligatorio. La lingua francese è, inoltre, considerata la più poetica e sensuale al mondo, basti pensare che il bacio fra innamorati per eccellenza è detto appunto “alla francese”. Per non parlare della possibilità di poter girare romanticamente per Parigi in due su una carrozza trainata da cavalli…

2. Le sue “luci”.

Seppure la definizione di Ville Lumière, città delle luci appunto, si riferisca a un suo antico primato (fu infatti una delle prime città a dotarsi dell’illuminazione stradale) oggi Parigi conserva ancora il fascino della sua storia culturale. Non solo città illuminata dunque, ma anche città dei lumi. Parigi fu infatti meta, nel corso dei secoli, di grandi intellettuali, grazie alla sua rinomata apertura mentale e culturale.

3. La moda.

Chi non ricorda Carrie Bradshow che entra e scivola rovinosamente da Dior, salvo rientrare a casa con le buste piene di abiti favolosi? Le vetrine di Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior e Vuitton si susseguono sugli Champs élisée nella cornice dorata dello sfarzo e dell’eleganza parigina, permettendoci di sognare e di immergerci nella favola dell’haute couture francese.

4. Le crepes.

Cucinate ad ogni angolo della città con il loro inconfondibile dolce profumo di cioccolato o marmellata, si servono calde ammirando gli artisti di strada esibirsi, il tramonto, rilassandosi al giardino delle Tuileries o ammirando la Tour Eiffel da Trocadero. Uno dei migliori motivi per visitare Parigi!

5. La crociera sulla Senna in Bateaux Mouches.

Non esiste niente di più suggestivo che imbarcarsi sui noti bateaux mouches, battelli caratteristici che attraversano la Senna, ammirando i monumenti parigini con musica di sottofondo, degustando una romantica cena a bordo o una bevanda calda… L’isolotto de l’Île de la Cité con la sua Notredame vi incanterà.

6. L’arte.

Parigi è stata la culla dell’impressionismo e del l’espressionismo ma anche di Braque, Chagalle e Balthous. L’arte si respira in ogni strada parigina e in particolare a Monmartre dove i maggiori pittori francesi si sono formati e che ancora oggi è un vero e proprio quartiere degli artisti. Non solo il Louvre merita una visita, sono numerosi i pregevoli musei parigini tra cui il Musée d’Orsay, celebre per i numerosi capolavori dell’impressionismo e del post-impressionismo.

7. Fare una capatina a Versailles.

Se vi siete innamorati del manga Lady Oscar, se siete affascinati dalle atmosfere di fine 700 parigine, in piena rivoluzione francese, è impossibile non recarsi a Versailles. Il maestoso parco con i suoi giardini, le sue fontane ed i suoi laghi è visitabile a bordo di un simpatico trenino. Della reggia potrete ammirare gli appartamenti reali con la camera di Mariantonietta, rimasta praticamente intatta, e le eleganti dependance le Grand e le Petit Trianon, oltre al delizioso tempietto dell’amore.

8. Rendere omaggio al re lucertola.

A Père-Lachaise è sepolto un vero e proprio mito della musica degli anni 70 che ancora oggi con la sua poetica affascina i giovani. Morto prematuramente a 27 anni (uno dei membri del club dei 27) Jim Morrison, leader dei Doors, è seppellito nel cimitero monumentale di Parigi tra Oscar Wilde, Maria Callas ed Edith Piaf e numerosi altri celebri artisti francesi e non solo.

9. Le “boulangerie”.

I fornai inebriano con i loro profumi le strade della città, uno dei motivi per visitare Parigi sono indubbiamente le “boulangerie ambulanti che sfornano e vendono baguette da portare “alla francese”, con un fazzoletto sotto al braccio, oppure gustosissimi pain au chocolate: pane puntellato di gocce di cioccolato da mangiare in ogni occasione, in pausa al Louvre o a spasso in un parco.

10. La tour Eiffel.

L’ultimo ma non meno importante motivo è la salita sulla Tour Eiffel. Nessuna visita a Parigi è completa senza aver visto almeno una volta il simbolo della città ed aver ammirato dall’alto tutta la bellezza di una città senza tempo, in bilico tra modernità e contemporaneità, ammantata di fascino e di magia, fredda ma allo stesso tempo in grado di scaldare il cuore.

Questi sono solo alcuni dei motivi che vi convinceranno a visitare Parigi, e se scegliete di affittare un appartamento con ParisFlatList, scoprirete la comodità di soggiornare in un delizioso appartamento parigino. Vi sentirete come a casa vostra! Cosa state aspettando, preparate le valigie!

    don't think words can express how amazing our stay at this apartment was. I had been living in Paris for a few months and was going to be visited by my family so I wanted to get a larger apartment that would be more 'home-like' for their stay. I knew the area this apartment was located in - its a quiet, residential area that is a 5 minute walk from both a grocery store and a metro stop, with bakeries located everywhere! In fact, one is located right down the street at the corner - you have no excuse not to have baguettes! Communication was wonderful and we were met at the apartment and shown the space. The apartment itself is absolutely gorgeous - from the layout to the decoration, it instantly makes you feel at home and comfortable. In fact the apartment may be a little too nice as I found it hard to convince my family to leave it. They were content to cook in the kitchen and have meals on the terrace or the sunroom. Our whole family would gather around the terrace every morning and every evening. It is an absolutely amazing space and unlike any other I've seen in Paris. We had many Parisian friends and relatives over and not one of them left without commenting at the beauty of the apartment and the uniqueness of the terrace. The apartment is located about 15 minute metro ride from what I consider to be the center of Paris (where it is the most lively). I considered getting an apartment closer to that area, but I am glad we decided on somewhere more quiet. It is nice to be able to get away from the crowds and noise and return home to a quiet and safe area....

    This apt was great. Very clean, and close to the metro, notre dame, and a great gastro area. It's cosy, but we had ample space. Made use of the washer a few times as we were mid trip, and that was good too. The balcony was a really nice adder, along with the bottle of wine awaiting our on arrival....

Communication was great, and although we didn't meet Nadia, Tony was waiting for us on arrival. Yes, stairs, but that's mentioned clearly. Would definitely recommend this spot in Paris, and would certainly stay here again. Brad Bower, Calgary, CANADA, stay April 2016

    The apartment was wonderful! fantastic location 2 blocks from the Seine and 2 more to Notre Dame, easy walking to all the museums and parks along the river as well as the isle st louis with lots of great, affordable restaurants. Cafe Med! the bed was comfortable and the full height and length mirrors on the closet made it seem bigger and added to the fun. the 3 windows allowed for plenty of light and air and the blackout curtains were effective at blocking the light for late sleeping. pretty quiet (for a big city) 1 way street and the other building tenants were quiet. the 92 stairs up were tough our first day with luggage but were not a big deal otherwise. The kitchen has 2 burner electric cooktop and a microwave but no stove. We made drip coffee everyday (no coffee grinder so buy ground coffee) and the milk steamer on the espresso machine was a nice treat. plenty of nearby grocery stores. The dishwasher was nice to have. although there is no clothes drier we found the heated towel rack left the towels soft and warm for the next use, really nice. Dishwasher, laundry detergent, coffee filters, etc and basic condiments were well stocked. the Sony stereo has a CD player and high quality sound. Wifi worked great. If you travel from outside Europe you will need power adapters for your electrical appliances although the wifi and cable boxes have standard USB ports for charging cell phones which helped alot. 2 different Metro lines within 5 minute walk as well as the 87 bus (which goes from the Eiffel tower directly to a stop 1 block away) and the 67 bus (which goes to Montmartre from the same stop) made it really easy to get around.

    駅からも近くて、どこにでも出やすく便利でした。 モノプリックスという大きいスーパーも近くにあるため、食材の買い出しにも困りません。 3階との表記ですが、日本で言う4階の表記なので注意。エレベーターもなし。 ダブルベッドが2つ、バスタブもあり、トイレも別にあったので、4人で宿泊しても手狭に感じませんでした。キッチンも使い勝手が良かったです。 Kobe, Japon
