Les Cocottes by Christian Constant was a cute and delicious little restaurant we found one night.

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.

Dinner at L'Oliveto was one of our favorite parts of the trip! It's a cute and authentic Italian restaurant with amazing food of course, but also the best service! The servers and maître d' were fun and engaging and made the whole experience a joy. Highly recommend getting the seafood pasta - it's their specialty and baked inside a pizza crust!

What are the best things to do in Paris?

We loved walking around the cobblestone streets of Montmartre after visiting Sacre Coeur. With some exploring away from the main streets, you'll find cute local shops and bakeries. We stumbled upon a holiday market during our wandering and loved getting to enjoy some vin chaud (mulled wine) on a snowy evening :)

What is the best tip for going on your honeymoon to Paris?

We were only in Paris for a few days and decided not to pack each day with tours and plans. We agreed on 1-2 key highlights each day and played the rest by ear. This way, we weren't stressed for time running from one place to another and got to enjoy some "off the beaten path" experiences.

Emil's Travel Tips for Paris

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

For breakfast, get a pistachio-and-chocolate 'escargot' and a cafe au lait at Du Pain et Des Idees - a picture-perfect boulangerie in the 10th. Dinner on the terrace at Cafe de l'Homme comes with a front-row view of the Eiffel Tower's light show after sunset.

What are the best things to do in Paris?

The champagne bar at the top of the Eiffel Tower is a must. The stained glass at Sainte-Chapelle is absolutely breathtaking. Hopefully the renovations at Notre Dame are done soon!

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Paris?

The Musee d'Orsay is smaller and more manageable than the Louvre. The mango sorbet at Berthillon on Ile Saint-Louis is possibly the best ice cream on the planet.

Sitting outside near the Eiffel Tower to enjoy the sun and ambiance was quite nice, even if the food was average.

What are the best things to do in Paris?

The sparkling Eiffel Tower at night, just magical!

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Paris?

Book activities they will enjoy in between trips to museums that they will be less enthused about. Kids love the open top bus tours and if you go to Versailles, they will love if you rent the golf cart!

ZIA for some unique brunch food MOKUS L'ECUREIUL for some great vibes and making you feel like you just walked into a hip, local spot (and the lights and unique bathroom experiences!)

What are the best things to do in Paris?

PARIS is the perfect place to see your typical sights, but allows you to take a moment to watch real life go by. Grabbing a picnic in front of the Eiffel Tower or stopping for an espresso martini before heading into a museum allows you to enjoy all the paces this city has to offer.

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

Would recommend staying in two different locations (if your timing allows it) so you can explore more of each neighbourhood.

Joe's Travel Tips for Paris

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Paris?

Kids will love the major attractions in Paris, we took our 5 and 11-year-olds to Eiffel Tour and Louvre Museum among others and it all worked well. This must be balanced with their wishes and needs though. For example, spending a good chunk of time at a playground will pay dividends. Check out LudoJardin in Luxembourg Gardens, the whole garden is beautiful, plus the kid can have some serious fun in the playground.

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

We loved the Magic Flute bakery on Rue Mozart. It was right by the place we were staying at and the desserts were to die for.

What are the best things to do in Paris?

I really enjoyed Versailles, the Louvre and of course, the Eiffel Tower. If you go to Paris, give yourself enough time to really enjoy the city, don't try to rush through and do everything all at once. Think of it like a multi course meal to be savored.

Fay's Travel Tips for Paris

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

Although we enjoyed all of our food choices in Paris, one standout was CoCo Paris. Their food was exceptional and so was their service. They also had live music which was a plus. Indoor/Outdoor dining is an option, and both looked just as beautiful. Reservations are also required, because they are always packed. Definitely recommend!

What are the best things to do in Paris?

Visiting the major landmarks and roaming the beautiful streets of Paris.

What is the best tip for going on your honeymoon to Paris?

I did not, however, my Flytographer, Rachael, helped with any questions I had.

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

Restaurants in neighborhoods - walk a few blocks off the beaten paths and away from tourist attractions so you can dine where the locals eat.

What are the best things to do in Paris?

Tours! We learned so much from locals about the sites and culture.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Paris?

Books tours specifically for kids/families. The kids will stay engaged and the adults will still learn a lot. Find the neighborhood playgrounds for some free play and a break from sightseeing.
