We’ve picked the crème de la crème in each category to help you better discover Paris. See what the locals themselves have to say about their favorite places!
Everyone knows about the Luxembourg and Tuileries Garden, but Paris offers so much more in the way of green spaces. Even better, by following our suggestions to lesser-known parks you’re sure to spend your time with locals instead of the other tourists. Yearning to find the best view of the Eiffel Tower or Sacre Coeur? Luckily we’ve scoped them all out ahead of time so you won’t waste your time looking for one. Got a kid who wants to find the spookiest gargoyles in town? We’ve listed our favorite churches as well.
With our top picks you can 1) buy an old novel in a quaint bookshop, 2) find a yummy hunk of cheese and bottle of wine at an outdoor market, and 3) know just where to take them to enjoy a classic picnic along the banks of the Seine. That’s the benefit of having a local in your pocket as you travel the City of Light. Enjoy!
