I’ve only been gone for a bit, but my mind is still lingering on the city! It’s a beautiful place at times, so I loved being able to go back for something different! The entire time I was in Paris except for one day, it rained. Not only did it rain, but it POURED! I think the skies just wanted to open up and attempt at ruining everyone’s makeup during Paris Fashion Week. Not everyone goes to Paris for Paris Fashion Week, but when you visit, the weather may be exactly the same. I’ve got 3 really great things for you to do in Paris, no matter the weather!
Go visit one of the museums like the Louvre or Centre Pompidou!
Museums in Paris are beautiful. Often packed with giggling school children, but beautiful. There are hundreds of museums and galleries scattered across the city, so it’s not hard to find one that you like. I am a big fan of the Louvre because it’s so easy to get lost, it did use to be a palace you know! I can literally get lunch, coffee, and breathtaking art in one place, what more can you ask for?! The picture below is from the Salvador Dali Museum, which can be a hike, but is well worth the views and seeing all of his amazing pieces!
Take a stroll through Le Marais
So for the longest time, I thought this was one street, but after going, I realized it’s so much more. It’s one of the best places in the city in my opinion to go shopping. It’s way better than the Champs Elysee because there’s significantly less tourists. I can’t tell you how nice it is to shop without having to weave and push your way through the crowds. It’s a stunning area with little corner shops, amazing vintage and normal high street stores, as well as beautiful architecture.
Visit Bastille & check out the boats and quays.
Bastille is the area where the French prison La Bastille once stood. It’s a nice area, especially on a nice day to just take a walk by the Seine and take in the sights. There’s a port right outside of the Métro station and it’s really nice to walk down and see the gorgeous boats on the river. It’s also not that bad of a walk from the majority of the nice spots, plus you can find a great place to sit and people watch within a few steps!
