Walking Around in Paris

Paris is a lovely city of quiet beauty paired with scenic, breathtaking views. To experience everything that the 'City of Lights' has to offer, walking is a great way to explore. Start your walk in the city centre at Place de la Concorde then proceed right into the heart of Paris, in the 8th arrondissement. The walk will then take you to the Louvre Museum. After you enjoy world famous art in the museum, you can get a dose of Paris culture and history in the surrounding gardens. Strolling along the banks of the Seine will leave you feeling refreshed and lead you to the historical Invalides. If you walk for about twenty minutes, you will reach the awe-inspiring Eiffel Tower, and can then proceed to the Parisian market. Here you can buy just about anything, from fresh vegetables to the best cheese Paris has to offer. A walk through the Le Marais will let you enjoy the vintage boutiques lining the streets. You can end the walk at the Pompidou and appreciate the contemporary art of Paris.

Coffee Shops in Paris

Coffee drinking is a timeless Parisian way of life, which has seen famous artists and writers such as Picasso and Guy de Maupassant taking their coffee breaks in traditional cafes. Contrary to modern practice, historic cafes such as Le Select, Café de la Paix and Café de Flore in Paris had cigarette smoke wafting through the air, as customers were served hot espresso and fresh baguettes. The emergence of third-wave coffee shops such as the famous Ob-La-Di Café, the charming Boot Café, and Fragments in the Marais neighborhood have since seen cigarette smoking being banned indoors, however the traditional atmosphere remains. Third-wave coffee shops incorporate a striking contemporary setting and offer a wide array of iconic pastries and desserts, including crepes, crème brulee, cake, macarons, profiterole, and the highly favored Parisian croissants. These are designed to satisfy different appetites, particularly for those who have a sweet tooth. Most third-wave coffee shops in Paris have in-house bakeries. The most significant similarity between traditional and third-wave coffee shops in Paris is that they incorporate both indoor and outdoor seating areas. Newspapers, journals, and magazines are provided to customers with outdoor sitting areas, allowing coffee enthusiasts to take in the sights and sounds of Paris as they enjoy their chosen delights.

Eating in Paris

The city of Paris is famous for being one of the top foodie destinations in the world. Paris is home to over one hundred Michelin star restaurants that produce some of the best dishes in the world. Food is an important part of the culture of Paris and great care is taken to make sure that every bite is savored and every meal celebrated. Eat like a local and pick up a croissant or any freshly baked pastry for breakfast, all of which can be enjoyed while walking through the streets of Paris. One of the best places to pick up a delicious pastry is from Angelina's, a small bakery on the Rue de Rivoli which has been in operation since 1903. The Parisians like to have a long lunch at one of the city's famous and authentic bistros, such as Le Patruche in the 9th arrondissement, or La Rotisserie in the 5th arrondissement. Book in advance for a dinner at L'Astrance where Chef Pascal Barbot creates unique dishes that are popular with both locals and international visitors. Try the buttermilk and burnt toast crumb soup for a taste sensation. Vegetarians and those with food allergies are well-catered for in Paris as well.
