A beautiful city to visit in three days, my best recommendation is to get up early and start the walking tour, so you can appreciate the beauty of the streets, monuments, cafes, etc

For places a little further away, you will always have the option of traveling by metro.

After traveling alone in 10 countries, I have to admit that Paris metro is one of my favorites, it has a lot of lines and almost all of them are connected between them, making it very easy and quick to get around the city!

 

If you haven’t been here yet, do not hesitate to plan a visit soon! the city is waiting for you!
