Tour Eiffel, Arc de triomphe, Champs Elysées, Sacré Cœur… all Paris icons and all must-sees. But what if you've already checked them off your list? Where do you go and who do you ask when you want to dig deeper and go far from the madding crowd, to see the what city the natives love? Where do they go for a drink with friends ? Which park do the go jogging ? Where do they buy authentic french food ?
While it would take weeks, if not months or even years, to truly see the "real" Paris, I've designed an itinerary that can easily be done in one day, with just a good pair of walking shoes.
This tour encompasses Paris must-see destinations according to me myself and I ! I will make you visit my beloved spots, and promise you that you will nott see any tourists by the places where we will go.
Cité des Fleurs : a charming pedestrian site in the épinettes district in the 17th arrondissement of Paris
Square des Batignolles : Adorable park, it lies in the district (quartier) of Batignolles, and is one of the most secret yet most beautiful one
Parc Monceau : a posh 17th-century public park unusual due to its "English" style
Rue de Rome Violin Makers : street with over 15 shops, with half of them professional Luthiers
Square Louis-XVI : Very few people, even in Paris, know that after being beheaded, King Louis 16 and Marie Antoinette bodies have been transferred to this wonderful tiny chapel, located in a peaceful greenspace where only white flowers are blooming
Église Sainte-Trinité : It has one of the most unusual architecture of Paris churches and is simply fascinating.
Palais Bongniart : This palace was home to the French stock market business for over a century.
Rue Montorgueui: famous street lined with restaurants, cafés, bakeries, to for Parisians to socialize.
I have been living in Paris for five years now. I used to live in Bastille district, now living in Marais district and about to move to Batignolles district. I love so much Paris that I always wanted to take people who don't know Paris to the places that are authentic, far from what says the tourist guides. I will share with you my passion for this city, some experiences that I have had here, what Parisians are concerned about, and will make your stay unforgettable. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
