About the location
I recently visited Paris for 5 days with my boyfriend and another couple - we had been before so this Guide is perfect for a second visit, it’s the slightly less touristy option. Yet, it is still great for a first-timer because you can still hit the must-dos!
We purposely stayed on the opposite side of the city from the Eiffel Tower so that we could experience Paris like a local! We loved it! We stayed in Le Marais and I would highly recommend it. We walked everywhere and used the river cruise to cover more ground. Le Marais is the old Jewish quarter - an architectural gem of a neighborhood. It is loaded with galleries and live jazz. Note - Le Marais is like New York’s version of Brooklyn!
Off the Beaten Path
This guide will show you parts of Paris other than the major tourist attractions.
Jazz, Art, and Food!

In this guide, I share our four day itinerary, as well as provide lots of tips so that you can make this trip your own. I list great museums, parks, wine bars, jazz clubs, and lots of restaurants (categorized by breakfast/cafe, lunch, classic spots for dinner, and trendy spots for dinner). This guide focuses on Le Marais, but will help you navigate the whole city too!
