Paris is Undoubtedly the most beautiful city on planet. There is something unique about it that makes it so beautiful. Paris was the last leg of my Euro Trip and for some unknown reason I was most excited about experiencing the astonishing beauty of this place. Maybe having heard so much about the place have made me this excited. As you enter Paris you will feel the difference. It mends the old and new, beautiful public places and artistic private places, all elegantly designed. One thing you should do in Paris it is to get lost in the small streets! Just walk through those small streets with artistic feel all over the roads studded with small charming cafes all around. Everything just seems like a picture out of a classic movie or a story out of one of those french novel. So, before I get lost in the beauty of Paris I decided to plan which all places to see in Paris.

The Cycle tour ( Free cycling)

Paris is beautiful by foot, no doubt, but it is marvelous on bicycle, just zip pass those beautiful roads and building all trough the day with Eiffel Tower playing hide and seek with you and giving a view on every other turn. So here is the secret of renting a cycle for free in Paris and getting lost in its beauty. There is a company called Velib that provides cycle for rent. They provide free cycle for half and hour and after that they start charging you. With in numerous stations were you can rent and leave the cycle back. What we did was we rented it from one station and put an alarm for 20 mins and Wooosh!! Here we go!!

Through those beautiful streets

With Paris being small in size and well defined and safe tracks to cycle throughout the city, it was really ecstatic to explore the city on cycle. Just keep a watch on alarm and return the cycle before the completion of 30 minutes. This way you can explore the beauty of Paris, completely free. There is even an App for this cycle company that tell you where the station is and how many cycles are available at each station. Isn't is amazing. So here I set out my journey to the street of Paris.
