For a little extra inspiration, the Domino editors’ favorite Instagrammers takeover our feed each weekend. It’s safe to say tips and covetable images are aplenty. Here’s what you need to know about the most recent feature!
We’re just going to say it: We love Paris. We love it in the summer, over the holiday season, and every temperature in between. We love shopping there, eating there, and staying there. Which is why we’ve shared guides from the ever-stylish (and French) Garance Doré, a Francophile who wrote an entire guide to the “new” Paris, and now, a guide to a few of the most photogenic places in our favorite city.
When we heard Nina Tekwani, aka @tekwani, was headed to Paris, we knew we needed to share her photographs—and go-to spots—with you. Keep reading for the stops to add to your next vacation.
Stop #1: The Saint-Germain-des-Prés Neighborhood
There are many, many neighborhoods to explore in Paris, and each has a distinct personality. One we never fail to return to is the Saint Germain area, which is, technically speaking, the 6th arrondissement. It’s nestled right off the Seine on the Left Bank and boasts lots of shopping, winding roads, and beautiful buildings (of course). Start your day wandering through this neighborhood and you won’t regret it.
Stop #2: The Montmartre Neighborhood
This neighborhood (the 18th arrondissement) is a tad bit out of the way, but don’t let that deter you from visiting. It’s situated at the top of a hill so there are serious views. Think about it—if you go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, you can only see the Arc de Triomphe. If you go to the top of the Arc (which you should), you can only see the Eiffel Tower. From Sacre Coeur, a beautiful church and popular tourist attraction, you can see both. Stroll the picturesque streets, stop by the Place du Tertre to experience a square of buskers and painters, browse some vintage shops, then stroll over to La Maison Rose for some sustenance and a photo (it’s too cute not to).
Stop #3: The Eiffel Tower
We know you know the Eiffel Tower, but you can’t visit Paris and not be in awe of the monument. Walking up to it—or up it—aren’t your only options, though. You can share a meal (wine and cheese encouraged) at sunset on the lawn or a less budget-friendly, but equally magical, option is dining atop the tower at Le Jules Verne. More photo opps can be found across the river at the Trocadero Gardens and Palais de Chaillot and also on nearby bridge Pont de Bir-Hakeim.
