The Eiffel Tower is the most famous tourist attraction in Paris and its silhouette became the symbol of the city over time. But while we all want to avoid mass tourism, some places just have to be visited anyway. The Eiffel Tower is one of those places so come with us to discover Paris from its top.
As you know, we aren't full-time travellers and we actually like our day jobs quite a lot. This is why, week-end trips are our elixir of life. However, taking the plane over and over again starts to weigh on our conscience, especially when we have another option. This is why, we made a small overview of all these beautiful destinations to reach from Brussels by train.
Compiègne, not even 90 kilometers north-east from Paris, is a great place to discover a typical french city far away from the usual beaten tracks. It is also a city with a rich history because Louis XV as well as Napoleon I and Napoleon III came here for leisure and hunting. In the famous forest of Compiègne, the Armistice of the first World War was signed in 1918. Visit Compiègne and walk through the imperial city.
