Champ de Mars
2023 Aug 05
Great park overall. People just sitting on the grass and enjoying the view. You can really feel the greatness of the place and the times it was created. Champ de Mars is a beautiful public park in Paris, famous for its iconic landmark, the Eiffel Tower. The park offers a stunning view of the tower and is a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. It's a perfect place to relax, have a picnic, or take memorable photos. The scenery and well-maintained gardens, and tranquil atmosphere make it an ideal escape from the bustling city. If you're visiting Paris, a walk through Champ de Mars is a must-do to appreciate the charm and grandeur of this historical park and its iconic centerpiece.
Medici Fountain

Medici fountain is a nice spot in the Gardens of Luxembourg. If you are going to the Pantheon, this is just a block away. Nice for a quick look. The surrounding park has beautiful flowers in the spring and relaxing chairs to sit and enjoy the park in the middle of the busy Paris.
Luxembourg Gardens
2023 Aug 01
This Luxembourg gardens in Paris is breathtaking and you can walk around it and sit on the many chairs found around to relax. We only had limited time in Paris but we made a point of going back. Our absolutely favourite part is the Medici Fountain. We are huge readers and I cannot begin to explain the peace found at this fountain. There are chairs all around filled with people of all ages sketching, painting, or reading and relaxing. We made this our reading spot the following day when the weather was better and it was such a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is also located away from the rest of the gardens so it was quiet and very relaxing. I would recommend a visit - there is a stunning palace, the majestic fountain as well as these beautiful trees for a lovely photo taking point for tourists. The whole place is stunning. Worth the visit for sure.
Louvre Pyramid
2023 Aug 01
One of the many iconic photo locations in Paris and especially in the Louvre gardens. People come here both by day and night to really appreciate the views and get some excellent photos. Beware though it will always be crowded, especially in high season, so be prepared to wait to get some of the good shots.
Eiffel Tower
2023 Aug 01
The gorgeous Eiffel tower is in the City of Lights - in Paris. It was great to see it first hand and we had a clear view on different times of the day. We went in the morning, afternoon and at night to enjoy it during different times and see it shining with the night lights.

I would recommend to view it at night with the sparkling lights and enjoy its stunning beauty.

There are people selling mini-towers and fridge magnets for tourists if you want a souvenir.

It is romantic to take a picture as a couple or with family. The tower was first user as a transmission antenna but then was kept as a tourist attraction. It has a restaurant on the middle floor of the tower where you can have a lunch and enjoy the view of the city and the river.

You have to see it to believe it how magical it is.
