Paris: The Most Beautiful Walk in the World

by Erynn

This charming little book reveals some of the most beautiful walking routes in Paris. John Baxter argues the best way to see a city is to walk; I totally agree.

I love walking around Paris and taking in the sights. The skies seem bluer there. And nothing beats the backdrop of the beautiful buildings. Plus there are endless side streets to get lost and marvel in. 

Here are some things we saw and did on our walks around Paris for four days.

SHOPPING: 

I also bought this piece of art from an interior design boutique called The Collection. The panel paper created by  French book illustrator, Marina Vandel, is a drawing of a bookshelf crammed with colorful and meaningful items.

And a trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without a visit to my favorite bookstore on earth, Shakespeare & Company.

 SIGHTSEEING: 

  • Notre-Dame
  • Eiffel Tower
  • Sacré Cœur
  • The Louvre
  • Jardin du Luxembourg
  • Jardin des Tuileries
  • (I wish we’d had the time and energy to go to Père Lachaise cemetery, but sadly I started feeling under the weather on our last day)

EATING: 

We also had the opportunity to drive an hour outside of Paris to attend the wedding of our dear friends. We spent two nights at a farm and danced until the wee hours of the morning, celebrating love. A perfect way to end our vacation.

Thanks for letting me share my photos with you! Please let me know if you have any recommendations for the next time we go to Paris!
