I've been reading your blog over and over again (loving it!!), but still have a simple question for you... We are planning a trip to Paris in May for 6 nights; I've been to Paris for several times, but my fresh husband hasn't. Please do name a few places I should 100% definitely drag him! You know the best.
Greetings from freezing Estonia,
How exciting that you get to play tour guide for your husband. May is glorious time in the City of Light and you should have a wonderful visit. A handful of places you should 100% definitely drag him?
There are boat tour that leave from Pont Neuf. Take one that leaves at dusk for a beautiful and romantic perspective of the city. You can bring some wine or chocolates. It lasts about an hour and only cost 10-12 euro per person.
There are obviously museums a’plenty in Paris. The Rodin is especially pretty and romantic. It’s a very doable size, with inspiring sculptures and beautiful grounds.
Grab some picnic provisions on rue Moufftard or rue Buci and kick back in the Luxembourg Gardens.
It’s totally extravagant, but you will never forget lunch at Grand Vefour. It’s exceptional in every sense.
Simply follow the Seine: Walk from Ile Saint Louis, past Notre Dame, poke along the bookstalls, criss-cross the bridges, admire the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, absorb the beauty of Pont Alexandre III and stare at the Eiffel Tower.
Lastly, a few restaurants to consider: Au Vieux au Comptoir in the 1e is a meat-centric locals’ gem. Chez Georges in the 2eme is an adorable old-timey bistro—tres romantique! And Chez Janou in the Marais is a Provencal bistro—boisterous and delicious.
Have a wonderful time next month!
