Where should you go to enjoy Paris’ best view? What are the most romantic places for a lovers’ walk hand in hand? Where’s all that great old French cinema you’ve heard so much about? 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!
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
