Champ de Mars
A real Paris tour is impossible without visiting a view point to see the famous Tour Eiffel. Did you know that the most popular view on postcards in Paris can be seen from Champ de Mars? Champ de Mars is a perfect place to enjoy breathtaking views of Eiffel Tower and to take memorable photos. A huge green area of 25 ha is a favourite place for tourists and locals to relax near the greatest Parisian monument.
By the way many people come here for picnics to enjoy both delicious food and spectacular scenes.
St Germain des Pres
St Germain des Pres is a must-visit quarter if you want to see real Parisian life. This area can be described as elegant and charming. Small bystreets, old mansions and lovely courtyards will make you fall in love with this place. Here you can also see many locals wandering through the streets, doing shopping or chilling in cafes. St Germain des Pres is also a place with the highest concentration of grocery stores and small food markets.
So if you want to buy and sample French cheese or wine, St Germain is just what you need.
How about having a lunch in the oldest public café in Paris? One of the legendary cafes is Le Procope. It is one of the oldest cafes in the world, founded in 1686. Just imagine: 5 centuries of history! Here you can see Napoleon’s hat (yes, Napoleon was a frequent guest here) which was left in this café and saved by the owner of Procope. In the Age of Enlightenment “Le Procope” became the first literary café in Paris. The list of famous guests is endless: Rousseau, Diderot, Hugo, Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin… Sounds impressive, doesn’t it? Nowadays Procope can offer atmospheric old interior, great service and, of course, delicious dishes of French cuisine including traditional onion soup, foie gras, escargots and many others.
Tasty food, significant historic place and good company – sounds like a perfect lunch!
Ile St Louis
Before we go to another bank of Seine let’s make a stop at Ile St Louis. This is one of two remained islands in Seine. Unlike Cite Island it is not very popular among tourists and now is a place where rich people prefer to live. The island has a calm and relaxing atmosphere. But there is one place where you can see lots of people. It’s the famous Berthillon café. It was founded in 1954 and immediately became popular by extremely delicious ice-cream made only of natural ingredients. More than 70 sorts of ice-cream and sorbet – you have much to taste! Berthillon is № 1 ice-cream café in Paris according to all kinds of rankings and is considered to be one of the best in the world.
Marais… What a charming place! This quarter combines a spirit of old times and contemporary culture. Being a Jewish neighborhood for a long time, nowadays Marais is a multicultural district which integrates people of numerous nationalities. This can be seen in a big variety of restaurants. French, Jewish, Chinese, Moroccan, Italian cuisine – here you can find anything you want and experience different dishes. Marais is also a popular place for a Sunday brunch – for many Parisians it became a tradition.
Marais is surely a must-visit place for gourmets.
In the heart of Paris, on Rue Montorgueil you will find a real treasure – Stohrer. This place is not just patisserie, it is a legend! Founded in 1730 by pastry chef Stohrer, this bakery nowadays is the oldest (and surely one of the best) in Paris. By the way it’s one of the favourite patisseries of Queen Elizabeth. Showcases will impress you with a great variety of desserts which look like pieces of art.
Croissants, cakes, pies, éclairs… How difficult it is – to make a choice! Paradise for sweet-tooth!
