Having been twice already we tried to skip the most tourist places and focus on something new because, you know, you’ll never be at a loss for things to do in Paris. Every neighborhood in Paris has its own sense of place and it’s always worth the effort to visit some of the less talked about ones.
This is the case of the interior of Opera Garnier. Despite being one of the symbols of the city, only the most experienced tourists decide to go inside and get lost in its beautiful corridors and majestic staircases of white marble.
This architectural masterpiece reaches its peak with the Grand Foyer, which is a large hall that leaves everyone speechless. Adorned with gold and accented with mirrors and windows, it is no way inferior to the more renowned Hall of Mirrors of Versailles.
If you still don’t feel Parisian enough, then you must stroll around in Montmartre at sunset time. A walk here is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
The truth is that usually people go straight to the Sacre-Coeur-Basilica or Place du Tertre, but there’s so much more in Montmartre than these! Its narrow alleys, its windmills, its little details are some of the things that make Montmartre so unique.
The lovely cafes of Montmartre inspired us to look for the best ones in town!
