The recent Paris tragedy has hurt many souls around the world. This post is a reminder that Paris IS and WILL STAY a great city worth visiting. To this extent, my purpose is to share with you my favorite places in the city, and hopefully make you want to explore them.
To stay creative: La Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Le Palais de Tokyo, le Centre Pompidou (Contemporary Art)…
To walk around: Le Jardin des Tuileries (where you can get Mövenpick ice cream in the summer). It’s perfect for some reading time or for chatting with friends.There is also fun fair in the summer, and a Christmas market in the winter time.
I also like le Marais because it’s very artsy, you can find original cafés & restaurants.
Le Musée Rodin where you can see the sculpture of Le Penseur (the Thinker).
La Place des Vosges: Just to sit on a bench or on the grass and enjoy.
To shop: The long street called Rue Rivoli (There are famous stores and some smaller ones)
To brunch: Any restaurant Place St Catherine or Le Paradis du Fruit @ La Bastille.
To eat: La Cidrerie du Marais (You can choose which ingredients you want to put in your crepe and it’s not expensive).
To have tea: Le Mandarin Oriental without hesitation. Great service, although a little expensive.
To have a picnic : Parc de Buttes-Chaumont (There’s a lake, a waterfall..)
To work in a café: La Favorite: It’s calm and you have big glass-windows to people-watch and get inspired!
To have a drink: the 7th Terrass Hotel, and the barge (Le Marcounet) on the Seine.
To work out: The Freeness Studio (4 floors, unlimited plan 24/7, collective classes & machines, sauna & smoothies)
