My Top 5 Instagram Spots in Paris, France

 
Paris is my favorite city in the world. The last time I was there before my trip last April was three years ago with my family. I've travelled to a lot of different countries since then and yet nothing comes close to my love for Paris. No matter how many times you visit, a different emotion will evoke. I've rounded up my top 5 places that you cannot miss on your trip to Paris. This is also where you can get that perfect photo for Instagram!

1. Palais Garnier
Address: Place de l'Opéra, 75009 Paris, France
This is also known as the Paris Opera. It has been on the top of my list ever since but during my last two visits to Paris the opera was closed. Third time is really the charm. It was finally open when I went in April. It was more beautiful than I could ever imagine. I'm a huge fan of the Phantom of the Opera which was inspired by Palais Garnier. We booked the guided tour for 14 euros each. It was worth it because the tour guide gave us a lot of inside information. She even showed us the box where the phantom was rumored to hide in.

2. Rue de l'Universite
The Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris. People from around the world travel to this city just to see the 300m monument. On Rue de l'Universite, you get the perfect view of the Eiffel Tower from this narrow street. It's less crowded and away from the tourists who usually go to Trocadero for their photos. This neighborhood also has a lot of hip cafes that you should check out.


3. Palais Royal
This used to be a royal palace but now it's just an office for French officials.
(Tip: Go early morning between 7 to 8 am to get the whole place to yourself)


4. Café Marly (beside the Louvre)
Address: 93 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris, France
The Louvre is such a busy place. From morning until evening, it's filled with people. It's hard to enjoy its beauty in the crowd. Just a few steps away from the Louvre, you'll find Café Marly. Here you can get a cup of coffee or a snack and look over you'll see a perfect unobstructed view of the Louvre.


5. Palace of Versailles
Address: Place d'Armes, 78000 Versailles, France
An hour outside of Paris is the beautiful Chateau de Versailles. It was built by Louis XIV as his residence. Every room is so grand. Truly fit for royalty.
