Considered the eternal city of love and light, Paris is quite the luxury travel destination during this time. One of the main factors is, of course, Maison et Objet 2018, but there are plenty of other attractions to see, so in this article, you’ll see 10 reasons why you should visit Paris besides just attending the prestigious show.
As once said the 3rd American president, Thomas Jefferson, “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life.” And he couldn’t be more on point. The French city ravishes us without a warning, overwhelming us with a sense of beauty, culture and philosophy like no other. The Eiffel tower is mandatory, but that’s not Paris in a nutshell. It would be wrong for us to presume it. There’s the food, the theatre, the art. Well, there’s Paris.
Whether you’re strolling up and down in the Champs Elysées, waiting in line for tickets at Moulin Rouge or sitting at a Michelin-starred restaurant, you have to savour every moment like there’s no other. The architecture, heavily influenced by Europe’s most important movements, such as the baroque, the gothic and the illuminism, is every architecture geek’s heaven.
It is, after all, the hometown of some of the best writers in history, such as Voltaire, Balzac, Victor Hugo, Jules Verne and Dumas. But it is also the resting point of several other important figures in history, such as Oscar Wilde, Edith Piáf, Jim Morrison and Chopin. It might seem a bit morbid, but if you have the chance, you must visit the Pére Lachaise Cemetery and pay homage to some of the world’s greatest geniuses.
And then there’s the design. There’s no better place in the world to get inspired by amazing design events than Paris. Besides the Maison et Objet, you have the Paris Deco Off and the world renown Paris Fashion Week, amongst others.
Taking into consideration all of this, here you can find an insightful infographic that features 10 unbelievable reasons why one should visit Paris beyond Maison et Objet. Don’t forget to pin it and share on your favourite social media!
