Caitlyn's Travel Tips for Paris

What are the best places to eat and drink in Paris?

Carette --- the coffee, the macarons, the desserts -- GAME CHANGER. Also, Cafe du Flor in St. Germain, it's a must!

What are the best things to do in Paris?

Grab a bottle of wine or champagne and some fresh bread/produce from a boulangerie and just sit and people watch by the Eiffel Tower! Views from the Trocadero are unparalleled (especially in the early morning when there are significantly less tourists).

What is your best travel tip for Paris?

Keep one day "plan-less" and walk around the city. There are more restaurants and wine bars and shops than one could possibly take in - stop when you're hungry/thirsty and pop in to a local restaurant or bar. There's nothing better than finding something beautiful off the beaten path in the most romantic city in the world!

Musée de l'Orangerie is my favourite museum in Paris! The floor to ceiling Monet Water Lilies are incredible. Musée Marmottan Monet was also a wonderful one.

What is the best tip for a romantic getaway in Paris?

Early morning walks along the Seine are wonderful, of course! It also felt quite romantic to walk along the streets in the evening and pick a little restaurant based on what caught your eye in the moment, rather than strictly following reservations.

What are the best places to eat and drink in Paris?

Anywhere that smells good! our favorite meal was one that i hadn't researched or picked out in advance. we used yelp one night and found this spot a block away from our hotel, Au Pere Louis. we ate escargot, onion soup, and steak frites. it was our favorite meal.

What are the best things to do in Paris?

Walk around. it was my mom and sister's first time (my second). i had jam packed the week with too many touristy things. next time, they want to rent an apartment, walk around, shop locally, and have simple meals of delicious bread, cheese, and fresh produce!

If you want to visit the louvre or the musee d'orsay (or another popular museum), check out their "late/early" hours for a less crowded experience.

Champs Elyse is worth seeing, but not a place I'd spend time. The neighborhoods like the marais and the beautiful streets of the 7th Arr.

I'd say skip ubers as much as possible and just take the metro. Try not to plan too much and just wander as much as you can. Try to experience each neighborhood in Paris because they are all so different.

Traveling solo with a baby in Paris is not the easiest, but it’s very doable. My Baby Bjorn was extremely helpful when taking the Metro and walking through the museums.

What is your best overall travel tip for Paris?

Of course, the Eiffel Tower is a must (both day and night are very different views). We were lucky enough to see it both at night with the twinkling of the tower lights and in the day with the sun rising directly above the tower. Take in everything, from the historic architectural design of the buildings, the way everyone just sits and people watches at cafes and even something as simple as the many different doorways (which we were able to capture in our shoot).
