Paris: Palace of Versailles

It was another cold winter morning. I decided to head out early to catch the train to the Palace of Versailles, one of the largest and most opulent castles in the world. If you love history and architecture, you wouldn’t want to miss this. Getting to the majestic palace is pretty straight forward.

Paris: Grande Mosquée de Paris

I have seen the magnificent Basilica of Sacre Coeur, one of the most beautiful churches in Paris. I am in search of where Muslims in Paris seek solace and tranquillity. Tucked among the buildings, located in the Fifth Arrondissement, right in the heart of Paris is a beautiful 20th-century Grand Mosque (Grande Mosquée de Paris).

Paris: Montmartre District

Montmartre is one of the most recognisable distict in Paris that has long been known as the premier artist’s enclave in the city. The word Montmartre or “Mountain of the Martyr” was derived from the martyrdom of Saint Denis; the bishop of Paris who was decapitated atop the hill in 250 AD. Montmartre today still retained its village-like charm.

Paris: Eiffel Tower

It might sound cliché but most people associate Paris as la ville d’amour. All of that is pretty much true if you were physically there. Everything about Paris is just picturesque. I have 3 words to describe Paris; lively, enchanting and historical. Pareee in the winter becomes a city of soft colors and simple comforts.
