My sweethearts, last week Philip and I made a little trip to Paris. It was my third visit in this beautiful city and everytime my heart beats faster when I am strolling through this magical town. There is no other place that’s so inspiring and stylish. Beside all the lovely cafés Paris blows my mind away with great architecture! We had 5 days to explore Paris again and when I am traveling always have a bucket list what to do and where to go. Well, I am a little nerd when it comes to making plans and I am always prepared. But good for you because in this post I will share my favorite locations and coffee spots with you! Hope you will enjoy it, xx Verena
Where to go – best locations
Let’s start with Paris most beautiful lady – the Eiffel Tower. Nothing else is more typical for Paris! I can’t describe what feeling it is looking at this special tower, the tallest building in the city. Whenever I am in Paris I try to stop by at the Eiffel Tower once a day and hope to get to see it when it starts sparkling! My favorite times to visit is during sunset or early in the morning! It’s not surprising that this is the most visited landmark in the world, right? Make sure to have a picnic there, of course with Macarons to fulfill all blogger clichés! 😉
Musée du Louvre is a must when in Paris! The beautiful pyramids are impressive and surrounded by great architecture. I love that the location offers you many options what to do. You can visit the Louvre and get inspired by great galleries, having iced coffee and some sweets with a great view or just take a relaxing walk through the beautiful ‚Jardin des Tuileries‘. Although the place is always overcrowded you will for sure find a free chair and a quiet spot to enjoy the parisian vibes!

Paris is not only convincing with it’s charming white houses with little balconies it also surprises with pastel colored streets. Rue Crémieux is another famous spot where everyone, trust me everyone, will take a picture even when the homeowners ask you not to. Maybe it was a lucky coincidence that my outfit is a perfect match to all the light blue and pink houses. Moreover, we had the luck that Philip and I met a photographer who was so kind to take a pic from us. Yay, Philip is on a pic with me! Furthermore, close to this amazing street is the arrondissement ‚Marais‘ which is full of little shops and cafés. We took the chance to explore both locations by bike because you can take a route next to the Seine!
Where to eat in Paris
Honestly, I am a little bit addicted with hunting good food spots! Since we are traveling more often I got myself always a well prepared list with the cutest hotspots. Thus, it’s much more easier to find the best Acai bowl in town. Well, I have some more typical blogger spots for you! The Season is great for breakfast persons like me who need matcha latte and berries to start the day right! Very similar is the café Ob-la-di which is located in charming ‚Marais‘. Lucky us because we had the chance to take a spontaneous lunch break at Ober Mamma. The restaurant is one of the current hotspots and normally it’s fully booked. It was the best idea to have a perfect italian pizza with burrata cheese in Paris!
Where to have the best view over Paris
Looking for the best view over Paris my preparations took us to the Galeries Lafayette. Especially on a sunny day the roof terrace is worth it to have a lunch break there. And isn’t it a good opportunity to make a shopping experience inside the gallery. Further on, a great viewpoint is from the top of the Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre (entrance 6€). We lived near the basilica because Montmartre is a cheap arrondissement on Airbnb and advantageous because it’s near Gare du Nord. Beside an amazing view you have to challenge your athletic performance by taking all the steps up to the top! 🙂 Close to Sacré-Cœur we spotted the cute pink house ‚La Maison Rose‘ but sadly the restaurant is closed since a while.
