Tip #1: Restaurants
Le P’tit Troquet
Le P’tit Troquet is Paris as in Woody Allen’s love story. The intimate, friendly restaurant serves a fine selection of French dishes, the blackboard, where the dishes are stylishly advertised in white letters, changes regularly. You sit by candlelight, cream-colored lace curtains hang from the windows, and when you turn the corner after dinner, the Eiffel Tower glitters right in front of you on the hour.
After stops in the kitchens of Alain Passard and Marc Veyrat, David Toutain made a name for himself at Agapé Substance in Paris. Now he cooks in his own restaurant, his own ever-changing tasting menus. Parisian foodies are rightly hyping his dishes, such as fried foie gras in baked potato broth with black truffles. The restaurant itself is Scandinavian chic. So, a lot of wood, stone, and steel but still cozy. Likeable: the chefs personally serve their dishes to the walnut tables.
The “Marty” serves fine French cuisine. Although exclusively locals eat here, the restaurant has an English menu – and a wide selection of great desserts! Afterwards you can visit the Cimetière Montparnasses, where Ernest Hemmingway was buried. But the closest is the Jardin des Plantes, which extends to the Seine.
Tip #2: The Louvre
A visit to the Louvre is an absolute must for many art lovers and tourists. Located on a small island on the Seine, the iconic museum is the largest art gallery in the world! At the Louvre Museum, you’ll find exhibits that bring you closer to French history, as well as works from around the world, such as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. In total, the Louvre Museum houses more than 35,000 exhibits in its centuries-old building and includes 8 thematic departments. The extensive collections include works of art and artifacts dating back centuries and representing 11,000 years of human history and culture. The permanent exhibition of the Louvre Museum consists of great works of art by masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Delacroix, Rubens and Vermeer and many others. It also houses Egyptian, Islamic and Greco-Roman art collections. Tickets can be found on the Louvre website.
Tip #3: The Moulin Rouge
The Moulin Rouge is a cabaret known as the spiritual birthplace of the famous French can-can. Located at the foot of the Montmartre hill and in the heart of the Pigalle district, the cabaret was built in 1889 by Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler. Originally envisioned as a seductive dance, the French can-can give birth to cabaret and is now a well-known dance in many countries around the world. In modern times, the Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction that offers great entertainment for every visitor from all countries of the world. Every night at the Moulin Rouge, the ballet is at the heart of the magic of the show! Both truly glamorous athletes and talented performers, its dancers will take you on an enchanting journey. Tickets are available on the Moulin Rouge website.
Tip #4: A cruise on the Seine
What better way to see “The City of Lights” than by boat from the Seine at dusk? Hardly. As the sun goes down, the sights are gradually illuminated brightly. You’ll have a front row panoramic view to see the beauty of Paris for yourself: Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, Alexandre III Bridge and many more.
You can also benefit from a dinner cruise in a fully glass-enclosed ship in Paris. For about two hours, you can enjoy the most beautiful views of the capital while tasting a menu created by Michelin-starred chefs.
Don’t forget that the Eiffel Tower sparkles brightly for 5 minutes on the hour every evening after sunset, while its floodlights illuminate the whole of Paris.
Tip #5: Visit to the Palace of Versailles
The Palace of Versailles is one of the most famous palaces in France. Built in the 17th century as a symbol of France’s military power, the castle was also seen as a demonstration of French dominance in Europe. This gigantic complex of buildings, gardens and terraces is undoubtedly an unmissable “must see” for any visitor. This place will captivate you with its extraordinary rooms, lavish decorations, gilded furniture, and Renaissance artworks. You can find tickets on the official website.
