The Best Way to Spend a Weekend in Paris

You might wonder how can I spend the weekend? While you really can’t see all of Paris in two days, you can still spend an amazing time in the city, combining the must-see spots with authentic Parisian food and drink.

You can start the day with French Breakfast because it is very brief – this is great for fitting in a lot during the day and not wasting time sitting at a cafe.

Visiting the Notre Dame:

Notre-Dame de Paris, also called Notre-Dame Cathedral, cathedral church in Paris. It is the most famous of the Gothic cathedrals of the Middle Ages and is distinguished for its size, antiquity, and architectural interest. We, like everyone else, are waiting for the speedy restoration of the cathedral. But such is the history of Notre Dame, and we believe that it will stand, be restored, and become even more beautiful. Today, unfortunately, it is not possible to climb the towers of Notre Dame or go inside the cathedral. But it is quite possible to admire its architecture and even enjoy the night illumination.
