前陣子,我分享了我三月底造訪巴黎,所嘗試的一些讓我很滿意的旅行態度改變,之後也陸陸續續收到一些認識或不認識的朋友,傳訊息問我旅行巴黎有沒有什麼景點推薦。

今天,想分享五件到巴黎雖然老梗但經典的必做事情。但所謂「必做」,當然是從我個人的觀點而言。每趟旅行,其實也沒有什麼一定要做、非做不可的事,端看每個人如何看待旅行、如何體會造訪的城市,以及個人的旅行方式。

這五件事或許是我每次到巴黎,一定會再重新體驗一次、我個人非常喜歡的活動。(不過第一項可能就不了,畢竟要爬將近 500 階樓梯還是有點累人哈哈哈)

Weeks ago, I shared a post about my travel changes when I visited Paris for the second time in late March. After so, I received questions regarding Paris recommendations from friends, known and unknown.

Now, I’d like to share with you 5 things to do in Paris. Of course, it’s from my personal point of view. There’s actually no “must-do” in travels. People travel with different pace, attitudes, and experience a city disparately. These 5 things are probably the things I’ll experience again and again whenever I’m back in Paris. (but I think I’ll just pass the first one. After all, it’s quite tiresome to climb up all the almost 500 stairs.)

登上巴黎聖母院鐘樓俯瞰巴黎市區全景

To awe the Paris Panorama on Notre Dame de Paris

Panorama of Paris

儘管排隊上鐘樓就得耗上一段時間,422 階狹窄、螺旋形的樓梯也讓人爬得暈頭轉向,然而爬上鐘樓所看到的景緻,實在壯觀得讓身體上的疲累在看到美景的瞬間即刻消失,當下只完全沉浸在眼前太美麗的巴黎裡。眼睛容納不下的,就讓快門來吧!在鐘樓上只覺得爬這一趟實在太值得。

我個人認為巴黎聖母院上的巴黎全景,比起在凱旋門上看見的實在美麗太多。凱旋門的全景以其為中心點,能看見發散出去象徵通往法國不同城市的八條大道與艾非爾鐵塔,而聖母院上同樣看得見鐵塔,還看得到根本是巴黎靈魂的塞納河,以及巴黎統一風格的美麗建築,《鐘樓怪人》裡的怪獸石像也在旅人欣賞著巴黎美景的同時常伴左右。相較於凱旋門的望遠鏡,聖母院眺望巴黎的氛圍以及看到的景色更帶點故事性。

Albeit it takes some time to queue up for going up the tower, and it’s freakingly exhausting to climb up 422 stairs, all the fatigue fades away when spotting the gorgeously amazing panorama view. All you feel at the moment is the beauty in front, instead of the exhaustion within. It’s definitely worth it to climb up all the stairs.

From my perspective, the Paris panorama is far better on the tower of Notre Dame de Paris than on Arc de Triomphe. The panorama on Arc de Triomphe is basically based on the eight great avenues symbolizing ways toward eight different cities in France. The Eiffel Tower is also in the view. However, it’s more monotonous compared to Notre Dame de Paris’ vibrant and vivid view, which has the Seine and the iconic Parisian architectures. In addition, the cute monster statues are great companions for travelers when they are in awe with Paris’ beauty. For me, the vibe on Notre Dame de Paris is more enchanting.

漫步塞納河,享受舊書攤尋寶的樂趣

Stroll Beside the Seine,
and Enjoy Treasure Hunting at Second-Hand Book Stalls

By the Seine

漫步塞納河畔,大概是來到巴黎,我覺得最浪漫的事情了。白天塞納河畔有許多各具特色的舊書攤可以挖寶。泛黃的書頁夾藏著歷史的智慧,許多絕版書在這裡也能以極實惠的價格買到,只是大部分的書籍都是法文。夜晚的塞納河畔別有韻味,暈黃的路燈映照著拖長的人影,夜晚的巴黎和白天的巴黎好不一樣,「午夜巴黎」這個詞實在太有道理。

 

Strolling beside the Seine is probably one of the most romantic things to do in Paris. At daytime, don’t forget to go treasure hunting at the second-hand book stalls! You can always find out of print books at very fair price there, although they’re always in French. At nighttime, I especially love the atmosphere of the lights from road lights and pebbles. Paris in day and night are both so charming. Once walking at night in Paris, I totally understand why there’s a phrase/movie like “midnight in Paris.”

讓蒙馬特街頭藝術家為你畫張肖像吧

Have a Self-Portrait at Montmartre

Get your personal portrait at Montmartre

蒙馬特大概屬全巴黎最接地氣、最有人情味的地方了吧!街頭藝術家群聚的帖特廣場,和華麗或是古老的巴黎市中心街道很不一樣,在這裡,你能感受到濃厚的「人」的感覺。那或許是一種最真實的生活感。讓街頭藝術家為你畫張肖像畫吧,殺個價,10 歐元就能有一幅從當地人眼睛裡看到的你自己。無論是速寫、漫畫,還是剪紙,都能留下非常具有特色的巴黎旅遊紀念。

Montmartre is probably the most artistic yet mundane district in Paris. Artists gather together at Plaza Tertre, which makes it very different from central Paris. Here, you can feel the vibe of people, of a sense of living. Let streets artists paint you a self-portrait, to see how you look like from the local’s eyes. No matter it’s a sketch, caricature or silhouette, it would be the best souvenir in Paris.

到有著雨果故居的文青瑪黑區,逛街、放空、吃美食

Go Shopping, Chilling and Eating at Le Marais

Le Marais

瑪黑區應該算是我最喜歡的巴黎行政區前兩名。它隨性、閒散卻又帶著無形的秩序,適合逛逛個性小店後,到排隊名店 Breizh Café 吃份超好吃的農夫可麗餅配上蘋果酒,再點盤得過獎的三號生蠔,吃飽喝足後,到附近的孚日廣場放空、放鬆、看人。而雨果故居就在轉角,展間內容非常豐富,也很適合在這裡度過一個上午或一個下午。

Le Marais is one of my favorite districts in Paris. I love its casual vibe. You can shop at fancy boutiques, then go to Breizh Café to have very delicious crêpe, cider and oyster, and go chilling and relaxing at Plaza Vosges. By the way, the Hugo Maison is also at the corner.

不管在哪一區,都要在露天咖啡座喝上一杯咖啡

Have a Cup of Coffee in the Terrace, No matter Which District You’re in

Anytime is always good coffee time in Paris

在巴黎,任何時間都是喝咖啡的好時機。無論什麼時間點,巴黎咖啡廳和餐廳外的露天座上,總有三三兩兩的人群喝著咖啡、聊著天。來到巴黎,不妨揀個露天咖啡座的位置,學巴黎人點杯濃縮咖啡,享受看人與被看的樂趣吧!

In Paris, anytime is always a good time for a cup of coffee. No matter it’s breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, you can always see people chatting and drinking coffee at the terrace. (of course they also drink wine in dinner time.) As you’re already in Paris, don’t lose that perfect chance to pick up a seat at the terrace, enjoying the fun of watching people and being watched, just like a Parisian.
