Best of the Parisian sights (video)

View from Eiffel Tower

After updating my digital tool to a better one I’ll be able to update certain videos from the past as well.

So, today’s videoupdate will be the Best of Parisian sights, about which I wrote some 2 years back. Not that the Best sights of Paris would have changed during the years.

After watching this short video of Best of 10 from Paris you can watch other creative videos inspired by Europe as well:

Travel & Art Europe is a one of the playlists of Indivue videos in YouTube and you can see all the videos in the link.

You might also be interested in what it looks like to travel all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Find that experience from the preceding link!

Take your time and familiarize yourself with the European travel experiences!

Trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower (video preview)

Today’s video is from Paris and from the most famous sight in there – the Eiffel Tower. I made this video in order to remember and to show what it’s like to travel all the way up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. And what it’s like to come back down on the ground. You know, the elevator inside the Eiffel Tower does not take you all the way to the top. Instead, you must walk the last and topmost stairs all by yourself.

But it’s really worth all the trouble and the cost of going up there. With the trouble I mean the long queueing during a hot day and then the travelling in a small elevator up there high. Travelling in a small place with all them unknown people whose language you don’t even know to speak. Watching the ground beneath you reciding, knowing there is no turning back. But the view from there, from the top of the Eiffel Tower, is really something. Spectacular, unforgettable, and worth all the cost and trouble, like I said. 

And then again, in the night time, when you are walking the Parisian streets in the centre, the view of the lights in the Eiffel Tower really bring about something indescribable for a tourist.

You might also be interested in the article I wrote about the best sights of Paris. It tells also about the best hotels, restaurants and Indian restaurants in Paris back in 2017.

An interesting point to be made is that an Indian restaurant in Paris, for which Indivue gives five stars for the taste, was only at the 12159th position in the TripAdvisor. This makes you wonder how good food there might be in the top 100 restaurants in Paris, doesn’t it? Maybe this is the reason why they had to invent them Michelin stars. See also the video of the Best sights in Paris.

But back to this video and the Eiffel Tower – After watching this short video about the trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower and back on the ground, you will automatically get to see more videos about the Eiffel Tower and things related. So enjoy your visual adventure and subscribe Indivue’s YouTube -channel for the coming travel & art -video updates!
