Our Paris Photo Diary + Recommendations

We took the train from London to Paris (which was super easy and convenient) and stayed there for 3 days. Even though it was our second time in the city together, we agreed it wasn’t enough time! We went to a few of the same places from our 2019 trip (our guide is here) and added a couple new spots to the list! Our full list of recommendations is at the bottom of this post!
We stayed at Cheval Blanc and LOVED it! The service, accommodations, rooms, rooftop, spa, location, were all excellent – would definitely stay there again!
Where we stayed: Cheval Blanc

Where we ate
Loulou –  Such a beautiful and delicious spot! Our table had a view of the Eiffel Tower and the Lourve gardens. The truffle pizza, rigatoni alla vodka, and pesto linguine were our favorites.

Gigi -This was highly recommended and it did not disappoint! The decor is chic, service was great, and food was light and fresh!

Dinner & Drinks:
Les Jardins Du Presbourg – We had the BEST time here and 10/10 recommend! The food was great, but the live DJ during dinner was even better. It turned into a dance party and we did not want to leave! SO much fun!

Hotel Costes – This was one of our favorite spots from our 2019 trip. It’s such a fun vibe and has great cocktails – we had to come back! Tip – order the fries!

Monsieur Bleu – This had been on our list for a while, and while it does have a great view of the Eiffel tower, we weren’t in love with it like we were hoping to be! During our last trip, we had fun sitting outside on their patio having drinks (with a great view of the Eiffel!).

Girafe – We loved it just as much this time as we did last time! We came here for Jenna’s birthday dinner and had tons of fun, the food and drinks were amazing, and our table was seated right in front of the window with a great view of the Eiffel tower! Highly recommend!

What we did
Paris Boat Prestige – The boat was definitely the highlight of the trip! We celebrated Jenna’s birthday on it and had a blast. It was a beautiful boat and nothing can compare to seeing Paris from the Seine River.

Crazy Horse – We wanted to see a show and our travel agent recommended Crazy Horse! It was so much fun, and the production of the show was amazing! Note – there is nudity.

Arc de Triomphe – We walked here after dinner at Les Jardins Du Presbourg and had a little photoshoot! It’s so gorgeous in person and a must-see when you’re there!

Explored Paris by foot – honestly there’s nothing more magical than walking around Paris and experiencing the different neighborhoods, walking along the river, and taking in the beauty that this city holds!
