Statue of Liberty, looking exactly like the one in New York City?
Except, it’s smaller. In fact, it is a quarter-scale replica of
Liberty Enlightening the World, commonly known as the Statue of Liberty. The one in Paris is located on Île aux Cygnes,
an artificial island in walking distance of Eiffel Tower and was given to the city of
Paris in 1889 by the American community in Paris to celebrate the hundred-year anniversary
of French Revolution. And if you still want to see more Statues
of Liberty in Paris, there are others, like the one in Musée d’Orsay and its copy at
Jardin Luxembourg. Or the one at Musée des Arts et Métiers. Or if you just want to see the flame, there’s
one known as Flame of Liberty Paris. NUMBER 9: Drive around Paris in unique vehicles Have you heard about the recent
invasion of electric scooters in bigger cities around
the world? Paris is a large city and walking can take
you a lot of time, while there is something beautiful and new
to discover around every corner. So rent an electric scooter and drive around
Paris instead. Electric scooters are super easy
and fun to use. All you need to do is download the app and
find the scooter located closest to you. And when you’ve arrived at your destination,
you simply park it there and the scooter will be waiting for their next driver. Or if you want a super authentic experience, reserve a retro car tour where you can,
for example, see Paris from your own sidecar. NUMBER 8: See the secret apartment
in the Eiffel Tower There is a small secret apartment at the top
of the Eiffel Tower. It was built by Gustaf Eiffel to entertain
the science elite like Eiffel’s friend Thomas Edison, and some say also
to make some Parisians jealous. You can see Eiffel’s cozy apartment if you
take the tour to the top of the Eiffel tower. NUMBER 7: Window shopping Feel like shopping?
Or maybe window shopping? Well, Paris offers plenty of that too. But not only on the famous shopping avenue
of Champs-Élysées. Visit Galeries Lafayette, a 750,000 square
feet department store with an impressive dome
stretching over four floors. Most of the store space is dedicated to fashion
but you will find plenty of other items too. The storefronts are especially interesting
during the Christmas season when they create unique Christmas-themed displays. You can also visit the Bazar de l’Hôtel de
Ville, located close to the Notre Dame cathedral. NUMBER 6: Unusual bars and cafés Paris is famous for good food, sweet
pastries, and interesting and unusual bars. You can visit Lavomatic, where you literally
enter through the washing machine. We tried it and had so much fun! Try Ice Kube Bar where you can order a cocktail
from an ice bar in an iced glass. There are plenty more to discover, so let’s
just name a couple of them: Little Red Door Paris, La REcyclerie,
Le Comptoir Général, Le Dernier Bar Avant la Fin du Monde. Check the description for more awesome ideas. NUMBER 5: Visit cool small and unusual
museums, galleries, atelier or shops Paris is home to numerous boutique museum,
shops, small art galleries and ateliers that you will hardly find anywhere
else in the world. You can visit the Artists’ Studios at 59 Rivoli,
an art collective in a former squat with 30 artists’ studios and an exhibition space. l’Atelier des Lumières is a digital art
museum located in a former foundry where you can experience art through light presented
using 140 video projectors. If you like perfums, visit
the Musée du Parfum Fragonard, a paradise for both perfume
connoisseurs and amateurs. On the other hand, well, Paris also features
a Sewers Museum, which is currently closed for renovation. There are many other interesting unique places
to visit such as the Museum of Montmartre, Museum of the History of Medicine, Hotel de
Cluny, Les Caves du Louvre and other. Check the description for more cool ideas. Number 4: Try French pastry Paris and France are known for
its amazing pastry. Try the famous macarons at Ladurée or one
of the other well-known pastry shops. If you like crepes, order one at City Crepes
Café or other small unique crêperie. Or find your preferred pastry shop like Lacroix
Patissier and try crème brûlée, soufflé, croissant, profiterole, or mille-feuille. And if you want a truly unique experience,
attend a cooking class or use an app called EatWith where you can book a dinner
hosted by locals. Check the description for the links
and more suggestions. NUMBER 3: Canals While many people think that canals are
only located in Venice or Amsterdam, you’d be surprised that
Paris is full of canals too. The Canal Saint-Martin is almost 3 miles long
and was built in 1825 to supply fresh water to Parisians and to help prevent diseases
such as cholera. In 19th century parts of the canal were even
covered to create more open space above. You will find many popular bars, restaurants,
and other attractions along the canal. Or you can even take a boat ride on the canal. NUMBER 2: Visit at least one of the
beautiful Parisian streets Paris is full of amazing and unique streets,
markets, and neighborhoods offering an insight into Parisian culture and art. Each street offers a completely
different experience. To see a collection of colorful facades,
visit Rue Crémieux. Paris is a romantic city, but if you want
to take it up a notch, visit Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole,
a.k.a. the romantic street. For an amazing graffiti collection
visit Rue Denoyez. There are many more like Rue des Rosiers,
Rue Lepic, Quai d’orsay, Rue Cler, Rue Montorgueil and many others. Check the description for more information. NUMBER 1: Chase space Invaders Have you heard about the Space Invaders or how people have been chasing
“them” around the city? Space Invaders are pieces of art made from
mosaics glued to the walls and other surfaces by a French urban artist Invader. The inspiration for the art comes from the
1970s video game Space Invaders. The art appears and disappears overnight in
different places all over the world. You can find them in Los Angeles, Rome,
Hong Kong, and other cities. People chase art with their smartphones using
a popular app called FlashInvaders. Are you ready to find a few yourself? Check the description for more info. Of course, Paris offers many other interesting
