With the number of places to see, the beautiful and the historical, in many times both, the lesser known places in Paris tend to be forgotten, or even left out of the tourist’s travel packages and Travel Guide book. And traveling without the use of an agency does not also signify that you get to see all of them. You just never know, and you might just not see the Tuileries.
Of course missing to see the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Palace is an act of a blind and deaf man, or just by deliberate attempt, but even such attempts is hard. The fact is, with the number of attractions, there’s a big chance that you’ll have to miss a few sites.
What to Do
By knowing which sites to visit and which are most likely to be flocked by tourists, you can now plan your strategy in tourist visits. In a place like Paris, even the gardens like Tuileries are flocked by tourists. There’s much hunger for history and arts here that tourists can’t seem to quench with their sightseeing.
Tips for Tourists
Get yourself a good guidebook. This will help you in planning your moves. They usually come with maps and those with maps are valuable. Of course, if you get lost, you can always find a cab in a city like Paris, but who would want to be lost, right?
Now some guidebooks have commentaries about the places to see. They’re not as essential as the maps and lists of places to be, but they’re definitely a plus. At the very least, you get to know the kind of place you’ll see even before you get there.
The feeling of every tourist, especially one that’s on a tight budget or a busy schedule, is that he should get to see all he could for as long as there’s time. That’s something for you to consider. A guidebook will really do wonders for your sightseeing.
You never know, with the help of that guidebook, you might just enjoy a good shady rest in the Tuileries in the afternoon after your long sightseeing walk. Whereas, without the guidebook, be a hapless and lost tourist, waiting for a cab back to his hotel.
