Paris

Despite the fact that Paris is known as the city of lovers, my first visit was a business travel. The good thing is that you still have the chance to admire its beauty even if you are in a meeting. Any Parisian restaurant or caffe shop offers a view over the city or over various historical sites, so you can enjoy doing both, business and sightseeing. If your meeting will be held at lunch and not in the office environment, then you can have a glass of wine with your partners, it's considered part of the french etiquette - pretty good thing! As you would expect, the nation that created "haute couture" puts a premium on style. Fashion and appearance are much more important in France that in most other countries in the world.

 

Fortunately, in this business trip, we had also 2 days for visiting the city. Of course, it is not enough, but still, you can cover the most important sights. Since January is not so crowded by tourists, you save time by not standing in lines. Considering that, we decided to visit the world's largest museum - Louvre, home of Mona Lisa's painting. I have to say that we made 20 km by foot only in the museum, not mentioning the Louvre Palace, Pyramids and the impressive souvenir shop network. The french icon - Tour Eiffel - is also an inspiring construction which should be visited both daytime and evening. Among Paris attractions, the Arc de Triomphe is the best place for an unique viewpoint over the whole city.
