What to do in Paris

Paris is a popular destination for so many reasons. It is a city I believe should be on everyone’s bucket list and a city I will continue returning to year after year. It has 100% captivated me & a piece of me will always long to live there. Below you will find suggestions based on a few of my recent trips to the glorious city of lights.


  • Rather than setting an itinerary for you, I recommend lining up your schedule based on where you choose to stay. Be sure to use my neighborhood guide & favorite attraction guide to schedule your itinerary!

Airport/Train Stations

  • Charles de Gaulle CDG (airport)
  • Orly ORY (airport)
  • Gare de Lyon (train)
  • Gare du Nord (train)
  • Gare de l’Est (train)



  • The Best Places for Breakfast {coming soon}
  • The Best Places for Lunch {coming soon}
  • The Best Places for Dinner
  • The Best Cafés
  • The Best Macarons {coming soon}
  • The Best Hot Chocolate {coming soon}
  • The Best Coffee Shops {coming soon}


  • Metro {very easy to use and it is included if you buy the Paris City Pass}
  • Uber
  • Taxi
  • Walk {my favorite way to see the city}



  • Book your Eiffel Tower tickets 2 months in advance! Or book a Fat Tire tour!
  • Get ice cream from Berthillon on the Île de la Cité {even if it is cold outside- it’s that good}

    Very concise guide. Would love to see the cherry blossoms in Paris. Spring seems like the best time to see the city.

    Been to Paris twice, once in winter and once in summer! That’s indeed a comprehensive list. I’m heading over to your other posts and can’t wait for the upcoming posts as well. Paris Pass is definitely useful, esp with the transport!!!

    I watched the video. I like the hotel a lot! It is modern, comfortable and chic. I like the bath items too.
    The d’Orsay museum looks awesome. That is an excellent transformation from a railway station to a wonderful museum. I like that it is kinda noisy. I mean, you have to be quiet in other museums.

    Lovely post! Paris is beautiful right now with the cherry blossom trees and everything. I live in Paris and still prefer to get to places by foot when hanging out in the city – unless I need to cross the entire city, obviously! :)

    Paris is totally on my bucket list! From your pictures, it looks great. Lots of people say the city is really dirty and not as great as they thought it would be, so it’s nice to see someone who doesn’t think that way.
