My favorite time of the year to visit Paris? Definitely autumn.
Weather: Not too hot, not too cold. Just perfect to walk the beautiful leafy streets, enjoy a cup of coffee or wine in the closest corner brasserie, and immerse yourself in the magic of the city.
Where to stay
It’s hard to pick one place but my two favorites areas are around Montmartre/Sacre-Coeur (18eme arrondissement) or le Marais (3eme/4eme arrondissement), simply because of the charm of these typical small Parisian streets and definitely their lively young vibes. If you are on a budget, I would recommend checking Airbnb, there are a lot of cute apartments that you can find around these areas!
Places I visited while getting lost in Paris:
On a cultural note….
Museums, exhibitions, theatre plays, fashion shows… I never really know where to start in Paris. What I personally visited on my fall trip and can recommend are: Le Musee d’Orsay (for the largest collection of painting, sculpture, and decorative objects between 1848-1914 from artists like Monet and Van Gogh), Le Palais de Tokyo (for modern and contemporary art), and the Victor Hugo Museum (for a sweet tour inside the house where the French artist lived the longest).
Where to Eat
Let’s face it, food is a very very important part of any travel experience – at least for me. Luckily enough, there is a good restaurant around every corner of Paris, but how harmful is it to have some good recommendations from a foodie? Here are my top 8 finds:
(17 Rue Notre Dame des Victoires)
Le Petit Cambodge
(20 Rue Alibert, Canal Saint Martin)
Pizzeria Da Vito/Moonshiner
(5 Rue Sedaine)
(69 Rue des Gravilliers)
(10 Rue Dauphine)
( 67 Rue Labat)
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and I would be more than happy to hear some of your own experiences in Paris!
