48 Hours in Paris

Everyone’s favorite romantic city. Paris, France is truly a dream and one of my personal favorite cities in Europe. I’ve visited Paris in every season, and there is honestly no better time to visit then during fall or summer. Today, I will feature some activities, food, and attractions that are a must-see in this city. If you’re planning a trip to Paris soon don’t hesitate to ask any questions below! Let’s get started.

 

Food

As a girl who once lived in Italy, I would definitely not say Paris is known for its food… although they have some of the best pastries and crepes you will ever taste. Below I have featured a few food items to try while in Paris.

  • Snails!!! When I tell you they are a MUST try in the city. You may be against this exquisite cuisine but it is imperative to try this appetizer at least once.

  • Baguettes!! I love eating mine with butter and jelly
  • Wine! If time permits I recommend going to a wine tasting. I would suggest taking a day trip outside of Paris and visiting the country side to immerse in their culture of wine and food paring.

 

Museums
