Young, wild, and free – that’s how I remembered it. Just the start of it… sunny days, late nights, and grand architecture. The city of love, the city of lights. Now I remember why Paris was always a good idea!
In many ways, Paris in the summertime is a great experience. The nights are longer, the streets appear calmer, trees are fully bloomed, deals are readily available, and tasty, inexpensive meals with a bottle of wine are plastered throughout the 6th Arrondissement. While there’s lots to do in Paris, here are a few things to consider:
LIVE LIKE A LOCAL
I’m stumped every time someone says “Paris is too expensive.” Save big by living like a local and rent an apartment – the Montmartre area is my favorite!
Ditch the map and lose yourself in one of Paris’ most historic neighborhoods – the Montmartre District.
THE LOURVE MUSEUM
Historic museum in the center of Paris – best seen at night!
Need I say more? Indulge in the beauty of the Eiffel Tower!
A bridge filled with many colorful locks along the Seine River – come with your sweetheart. Do take some time and stroll along the river for a minute of relaxation.
Notre Dame may be the most famous of all cathedrals. The Gothic inspired carvings are not to be missed.
Take a daring photo along the roadway leading to the iconic Arc de Triomphe and do some shopping along Champ Elysees.
Located in the 6th Arrondissement, Luxembourg Gardens is one of the most beautiful parks I’ve experienced. Grab some friends (or locals), have a picnic, and take in the amazing landscape.
Iconic cafe in the Latin Quarter frequented by Picasso, Ernest Hemmingway, Julia Roberts, and Harrison Ford.
Until next time, cheers to the Vagabonding Life!
