3 days in Paris

A place to visit all year round. A beautiful city, with wonderful architecture and delicious food. Start your day right with a freshly made croissant, and finish with baked camembert and a glass of red wine. 


I recommend staying in the Parisian district of 'Le Marais'. Once the Jewish quarter, it boasts the most pre-revolutionary buildings and streets in Paris. In Le Marais you will find a whole host of bars and Parisian styled Cafes, and you won't be far from any key sights. If you're going to Paris from London, you could even come for a day via the Eurostar. 


Day 1 in Paris

Where to Eat? 


Quite simply: Bouillon Chartier (£). 

In the Montmarte region of Paris, here is an old bank converted into a Parisian styled restaurant. It's likely you'll have to queue. But for the atmosphere and price, you won't regret it. You'll be plonked onto a small table with other customers (that's how busy it gets), so if your don't fancy socialising, maybe go elsewhere - but I think that's their whole point of plonking you anywhere. Expect a 3 course meal and wine for less than £20pp. 


I can't recommend this restaurant enough, it's one of my favourites in Europe. Be sure to ask for the English menu if French isn't your forte. Here is a photo of the menu the first night we visited (January 2018). The menu changes daily, so don't expect these dishes when you visit. However, do not expect the highest quality food in Paris, for this price, and in a location/building like this, the food is fast and good.
