Paris. The city of love! Know for many spectacular movies, art, romance, and FOOD.
Did you know that the Louvre has a free day each month? We fortunately were in Paris on the first sunday of the month and used this tip to wander the halls of this magnificent museum for free!
Here are my three top recommendations for a few days in Paris!
1. Eat profiteroles. Forget the calories and the dairy allergy- just do it- it’s worth it.
2. Use Vélib. It is a bike share program with docking stations on “almost” every block of the city. Great way to save your feet from walking 10 miles in a day (yeah, ouch) and you get to see the city much faster! (bonus, try to blend in on a bike and act like a local, it’s fun! … Until someone yells at you in French and you have no clue what they’re saying.)
3. Stop and breath in the fresh air in one of the many “parcs”. Remember, it’s ok to actually rest and enjoy your vacation. Although it’s fun to constantly be on the go, and it’s also fun to people watch and see the way of life for the Parisian people.
4. (BONUS) Saint-Germain is also a super cool area for bars and night life.
