I love Paris – no surprise there! I’m typically in Paris a few times a year, for work or pleasure, and thought it was about time to compile a list of some of my favorites. We love to stay in the the gorgeous, charming neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Pres. It’s perfectly situated to be close to the fun restaurants, cafes and shops of the area. I also love the 2nd Arrondisement for the beautiful luxurious apartments and Eiffel Tower views! I’ve also stayed right by the Palais Royale / Jardin de Tuileries and it’s an amazing central location as well. A few must-visits when you’re in Paris:
Where to Explore
The artsy, hilly neighborhood of Montmarte & Sacré-Coeur
Trocadero Platform at sunrise or in the evenings to watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle
Cathedral Notre-Dame (We were actually there last spring for the fire – it was a crazy sight to see. Whenever it opens back up – it’s worth a visit!)
Rue Cremieux (Rainbow Row, the most charming and photogenic street!)
Jardin de Luxembourg
Shop at Sezane (my favorite!)
Le Maison Rose
Musee d’Orsay for the Impressionist floor alone
Explore the Paris Flea Market
Where to Eat & Drink
Le Maison Rose
Cafe de Flore
Hemingway Bar at the Ritz
Anywhere in the Latin Quarter
LouLou for healthy acai bowls
Le Train Bleu
Anywhere on this list
Where to Stay in Paris
I’ve become somewhat obsessed with the best places to stay in Paris. There’s an overwhelming amount of options, but I’ve narrowed it down to the few I’ve stayed in that I personally LOVE and most importantly – have balconies! For me – having a balcony in Paris is just an essential part of experiencing a stay here.
Residence Charles Floquet – the best view of the Eiffel Tower ever, and most beautiful apartment rental.
I hope you enjoyed this little taste of Paris, and it can inspire you for a future trip!
