Week in Paris - Help us plan it!

We are going on honeymoon to Paris for a week and wish to plan our 7 days to get the most out of Paris. What are some must see places, must eat in restaurants, or other attractions? We want to get a feel of the city's vibe, community, cafes, etc. Not just known city attractions.

    My favorite area of Paris for soaking up the city is the Latin Quarter . This is the area where university kids hang out, so you'll find a lot of street kiosks and fashion, and Shakespeare and Company , one of my favorite bookstores ever, is nearby. Yes, it's a popular bookstore, and yes, tourists will probably be visiting there as well, but I feel like it's a no-miss if you want a small slice of Parisian life. In the same line of thinking, I'd recommend walking up Boulevard St Germain to find any number of cafes to stop in for a leisurely lunch (check out the menus for tourist prices, though, and keep moving if you see a big price uptick), and visiting Place Saint-Michel and the surrounding streets for some people watching. There are also a lot of ethnic eateries here, including some fantastic Tunisian bakeries. If you like art, visit Place Saint-André-des-Arts where a lot of students artists sell their original works. And don't leave without visiting Rue Mouffetard for some serious old-school Parisian cobblestone paths (and a famous Italian pasta shop, Androuët ). Again, you definitely won't be the only visitor in these areas, but it sounds like you're casting a wide net of what to visit, so these are a few of my suggestions. Have fun!

    I would try La Fontaine de Mars or Chez Julien for restaurants. Both are wildly romantic (Julien is a little pricey, though).

    I would also stroll through the Le Marais district, especially on a Sunday. There is a lovely little square called the Place des Vosges where there are tons of art galleries and people walking around.

    I also love Rue Montorgueil which is a fun little market street with all kinds of pretty restaurants and stores. Great for people watching.

    It sounds kind of touristy but I would take a ride on the Bateaux Mouches which are the boats that go down the La Seine . They are wonderfully romantic and will give you a great overview of the city.

    For culture, I would hit the Musée de la Vie Romantique which is pretty much just how it sounds, and/or the Musée Rodin which is beyond romantic.

    I would also make sure you plan a stroll through either the Jardin des Tuileries or the Palais Royal , both of which are stunning.

    Have a fabulous time!!

      I noticed when I suggested Palais Royal on the map too it puts the marker in the wrong spot... · (0 likelikes)

      SUCH great suggestions. I agree that a Bateaux Mouches ride would be lovely and I have to underscore the Rodin Museum! It is my favorite museum in Paris and many of the sculptures are incredibly romantic: Le Baiser, the Cathedral, the story of Camille Claudel and Rodin. The Jardin des Tuileries is indeed a must! · (1 likelikes)

    You could go to the Café on the top of Centre Pompidou - Musée National d'Art Moderne , in the evening to get a cocktail with a nice view on Paris by night; the Mama Shelter is also a good bar or restaurant for a nice diner. Try the Sacre Coeur r in the evening also but climbling the hill from the North Face, less touristic and more "Parisian"... then Le Marais , Place Saint-Paul , Île de la Cité are classics !

    My Fav insider restaurant is Pamela Popo 15 Rue Francois Miron - dinners & brunch are terrific. It is in the Marais (4th district) just off the Sienne on a quiet residential street. Do make reservations as it is small and local. Kong 1 Rue de pont Nuef - Asian Fusion with a very hot & energetic vibe. Do book an upstairs terrarium table (top floor is all glass that open in the summer months to the sky & stars. Overlooking the Siene & Île Saint-Louis . Design is by Phillip Stark - very interesting and the food is terrific. $$$$. Alcazar at 62 rue Mazarine is more medium price - great design & great food.
