5 Things I Would Like To Do Next Time In Paris

Sometimes when I think back to our honeymoon in Paris it feels like only two minutes ago, and other times it feels like years ago already. I posted a travel guide recently with some of my tips if you're planning a visit in the future and I mentioned in that post that we're already thinking about going back again one day and over the last few weeks I've found myself thinking about it more and more and what I'd like to do next time. Whilst 3 nights/4 days was the perfect amount of time for us and we did see a lot of the sights, now we're back I've really realised how much we missed too. I'd love to go back again for another 3 nights or so in the future so these are some of the things on my list for next time!
5 Things I Would Like To Do Next Time In Paris including Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe, Disneyland, Montmartre and The Louvre

Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower

I went back and forth over whether this was something we should do on our honeymoon, some days I was all for it and then others I felt a little differently, also seeing it up close makes you realise just how high up it is and whilst I'm not usually fussy with heights, I did worry if went up there, I'd hate it. Looking back now I'm sure it would have been fine and if we do go back this is definitely at the top of my list. It's a once in a lifetime thing for most people isn't it and I think it's something we've got to experience at some point.

Go to the top of the Arc De Triomphe

Talking of heights I'd also love to go to the top of the Arc De Triomphe. We walked past and admired this every day as it wasn't far from our hotel but it wasn't until the last day or so that I thought, actually what a cool experience it would be to go to the top. I've seen online the views you get from the top as it really does cover so much of Paris and I think that moment and those photos would be so special.

Visit the Louvre museum

It was incredible to see the Louvre up close and spend some time taking in the amazing piece that it is but last time we didn't find time to actually go in the museum and see paintings like the Mona Lisa. I'd heard from a few people it's definitely worth doing but we had so many places we wanted to see that it just wasn't a priority. In the future I'd love to spend more time there and actually go into the museum and see these masterpieces in real life!

Spend more time in Montmartre

We only had around an hour in Montmartre when we did a different route on the bus tour but just that short amount of time really showed me that there is so much to see in that area of Paris and it had a really different vibe to other places we'd been. A lot of places in Paris as you'd imagine are packed full of people, and whilst it was definitely still busy, in general it seemed a little more chilled out and everything was just beautiful. Next time I'd love to see the Sacre-Coeur up close and also the sinking house!

Visit Disneyland Paris

I've never been to Disneyland Paris or Disneyworld Florida and I think I kind of need to visit one of them at some point don't I? It seems quite easy to get to Disneyland Paris so I'd love to take a full day out next time to visit. I want to experience that feeling of walking in for the first time and seeing the castle, meeting the characters, and just being in the most magical place in the world.

The more I think about Paris, the more I realise how amazing it was we got to go at all. We'd waited such a long time to go abroad together and for our first proper trip away to be for our honeymoon, and in Paris of all places, it was just so special and somewhere I'll always remember. Whilst I don't think we'll be heading back any time soon, as nice as that would be, I think at some point we'll definitely consider it to do all of the things we didn't get time for last time.

Have you been to Paris or have any recommendations of what to do next time?
