Oh Oh it’s been over a month since I uploaded the first part of my Paris Guide but I loved my last stay in Paris so much that I could not withhold the second part from you. This one is all about things to see/do and the best places to shop in Paris.
Things to see/do:
Obviously Paris is a city with some amazing sights, which you should definitely visit. We however had both been to Paris before so we decided to spend our time at some less famous but equally pretty sights.
- Le Jardin du Palais Royal, if you have seen any Instagram pictures of Paris then you must have seen this garden. The garden has a section where you can find the most stunning black and white pillars, but the actual garden part is also beautiful and very peaceful. This is also the place where you can find Caf’é Kitsuné.
- Place Dauphine on Île de la Cité is an adorable little square with idyllic looks. This is what you imagine Paris to look like.
- Jardin du Luxembourg is a very large and very beautiful park and the perfect place to go to if you need a little escape from the busy streets of Paris.
- The Eiffel Tower by night, The Eiffel Tower is probably the most well known sight in Paris, but at night at the hour precisely, The Eiffel Tower lights up and it’s absolutely stunning.
- Le Marais is a really trendy neighborhood with cute restaurants, brunch places and some very nice boutique like stores.
- Place des Vosges is the oldest square in Paris located in Le Marais. The square and it’s architecture are amazing and due to the park in the middle it’s also a great place for a picknick.
Where to shop:
You’ll find a lot of the regular well known chains in Paris but there are also some amazing stores that deserve a little extra attention.
- Merci is the store that probably surprised me the most. Merci has a mixture of home decor items, clothes, books and other accessories and also two restaurants all in one shop. A place where you can easily spend a couple of hours.
- Maison Kitsune is a popular French clothing brand, well known for their T-shirts and sweaters.
- Gallery Lafayette is a gorgeous and extremely big department store. Even if you’re not interested in shopping, the stunning building is a must see.
- Sephora might not be the most interesting store to visit if you are living in the U.S. but France is one of the few European countries that has Sephora. Sephora France does not have as many brands as the U.S. Sephora but as a beauty lover it’s worth a visit.
I hope you liked these Paris guides. Other places will follow soon.
