On my last night in Paris, a guy asked me what my favorite place in Paris was and at the time I couldn’t give him an answer. For the record, his favorite place is the Opéra Garnier, which is an excellent choice.
I have been mulling over this question for almost a week now and I think I have finally made up my mind. Of course, I am incredibly indecisive so I have two favorite places.
One of them is the top of the Sacré-Cœur. From up here you have all of Paris at your feet and it is absolutely breathtaking. From up here you can point out the golden dome of Invalides, the inside out Pompidou, the Pantheon, Notre Dame, the massive length of the Louve, and of course, no view of Paris would be complete without the Eiffel Tower.
My other favorite place in Paris are the gardens at the Musée Rodin. Of all the gardens that I saw in Paris, these were the most beautiful. The gardens feel so peaceful and quiet even though it’s right in the middle of Paris. I also think that the gardens perfectly complement Rodin’s work.
Rico, I doubt you will ever see this, but this is my answer to your question.
