Today I’ll talk about some good places in Paris to better enjoy some great romantic moments and take some nice sunset pictures.

Paris is a such an interesting capital….you can easily fall in love with it if you are a romantic tourist. Getting a beautiful view of the city at sunset is quite easy wherever you are….let’s have a look at some valid panoramic points where you can better enjoy your time….We have the 2 panoramic banks of the Seine river which offer a nice place to sit down a little bit, look around  and relax, especially in the area of the Ile de La Cite’, where  the Saint Chapel and the Notre Dame cathedral lie. Than you can climb on top of the latter or watching the Eiffel tower from dozens of amazing bridges, or even from the terrace of Arc de Triomphe

There is something special in Paris, everything looks big and perfectly represents the French grandeur….. The picture at the beginning of this article has been taken from the terrace of Notre Dame cathedral where the famous Gargoyle statues lie….if you get there don’t forget to stay in queue at least 2 hours before the ending time of visits….they close early and they can even close the door in front of you when it’s almost your turn…The atmosphere here is impressive….Gargoyles seem to protect Paris like guardians…..

When you finish and get down again, it’s a good idea to relax on the north bank of Seine in the Isle the St. Louis as you can see in the picture below…you can watch bateaou mouge boats going back and forth, the sun shining through the trees, and the Notre Dame bells filling the air with such a smooth and sweet sound……

Another nice thing to do is sitting in a Paris cafe’, with those typical seats facing the street, and looking at people walking around to catch a nice portrait…..Finally, you can climb on top of Arch Du Triomphe to get a 360 panoramic view over the city and a nice look over the Champs Elysees and the district of La Defense…..And whatever you decide to do, the magic word in Paris is “sunset”!!
