In the travel industry, people have been trying to group travel with a focus targeting the 50 plus generation. As a group, many enjoy their travel much more because they are able to socialize within the same age groups where companionship is a priority. A flight out to Europe tends to catch the eye of many due to the abundance of activities abroad with an interest in historical sites.
Paris, France is a great example, especially with their winter festivals, Holiday markets, lights of the Eiffel Tower and more. Sight seeing is made easy by purchasing a Paris pass to explore amazing sites such as Musee Du Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Arc De Triomphe. Travelers can also explore what Paris has to offer in the culinary aspect, such as their escargot, frogs legs, wine and a variety of cheeses. You can wake up and walk out of your hotel to find the colorful streets of Paris filled with the freshly made coffee paired with a fresh hot baguette or croissant – a French delight! Everything you will need is within walking distance including the metro stations to get you to the different areas within Paris, creating a destination that is accessible to many.
According to US News “The Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay museums, two of the most popular spots on the Paris tourist circuit flanking the Seine river, told The Associated Press they’ve both recorded a 30 percent drop in visitors compared with the week before the Nov. 13, 2015 attacks. The Pompidou, the main museum of modern art, says ticket sales have halved”.
With everyone showing their support for the City of Light and trying to find a way to give back, visiting Paris is a wonderful way to contribute & experience one of the most beautiful cities in the world. A healthy and steady tourism is crucial to the well being of central Paris and it employs over 200,000 people in a population of just 2 million. It is the biggest act of support we can show and with the slump in sales of flight tickets and tourist passes, prices are dropping.
Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world. Let us not forget that the same thing that has always excited us about Paris is still there, “love,” so lets love them back.
