The French capital city is just something magical. Often romanticized and in many movies you’ll see shots of this great city. We love to come back each time. Over the years we’ve made it several times already, and yet there is always something new to discover.
If it is your first time to this city, you cannot avoid seeing all the highlights as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomph, Champs Elyssée, Centre George Pompidou, the Louvre, Sacre Coeur and the Notre Dame. This alone is a full weekend at its self. And that’s ok as you will walk through several nice areas of Paris or take the metro which you will find everywhere. Getting around in Paris is not the problem (unless you go by car and take the Boulevard Périphérique).
And what if you’ve seen this all?
That’s just impossible. You just can’t see it all as it’s one of Europe largest cities with about almost 11M inhabitants (if you count all the suburbs). So, even if you have seen the highlights, always worth a second visit. But there are many other things to do. Paris is very photogenic. It’s nice to just walk around and see a few areas while taking pictures. The streetlife is great to capture. For example the area behind the Montmartre is very interesting. With a nice square for paintings at Place du Tertre but that would still be quite touristy. Better to walk a bit further for a bite at Rue Lepic. This will bring you to the Moulin Rouge. We haven’t found the time yet to visit a show, but it is highly recommended. Even though it’s quite expensive to get in. For a classic view of an old area with the Sacre Coeur at the back, walk down the Rue de l’Abreuvoir. You’ll get passed the Maison Rose for your Instagram shot after which you’ll get a second great Instagram if you walk towards Metro station Lamarck – Caulaincourt.
