Around every corner in Paris is something breathtaking. The few days I got to spend in Paris were heavenly, and I am more smitten with this stunning city than I anticipated I would be. I was not prepared for the beautiful buildings, statues, and gardens throughout the city.

The sites were beautiful, but what truly won me over was the food. The chefs in Paris are master’s of the craft, and made beautiful meals I can’t stop dreaming of. I had a duck confit that makes my mouth water every time I think about it. Despite my dairy-allergy and rudimentary French, I had no trouble finding food I could eat, a few of the chefs asked if they could make me something off book with the ingredients they had on hand. I could go on-and-on about the spectacular meals I had, but I’m afraid I’ll start drooling a ruin my keyboard.

If you go…

  • Don’t try to diet… the food is too good
  • Bring your most stylish clothes – a few places we went had strict dress codes
  • If you’re looking to stretch your money, go to the nice restaurants at lunch. It’s much less expensive, and you’re less likely to miss out if you don’t have a reservation
  • Check which days the museums are free (and which days they’re closed) – I wasn’t able to go to The Louvre because I didn’t know they were closed on Tuesdays
    • Check for free-admission days as well! There is usually at leaste one museum/tourist desitnation free everyday
  • Many of Paris’s most famous tourist destinations are well worth the hype. I truly enjoyed my visit to the top of the Eiffel tower, and was very impressed by the Notre Dame Cathedral.
