Paris is just as beautiful as they say. The whole city, the streets, the buildings. Although, I didn't like the contrast between the old buildings and the very modern ones next to each other.
The city was also extremely crowded, there are very many people and cars on the streets, at the tourist spots like the Eiffel Tower and especially in the metro. So you better take some more time and walk on the surface.
It is also much better if you find a supermarket instead of buying food and drink at the tourist spots, it is extremely expensive. Also consider that you will need some time to get around, so don't make strict plans but relax and enjoy the great Paris.
