Strolling around Paris
I am passionate about discovering the city and her amazing architecture and exhibitions it has to offer ! There is always something new…that’s the magic of Paris!
To help you find the best spots, and find what you are looking for during your trip in Paris or your new arrival here, I am proposing some different itineraries you can follow by walking so you do not miss anything!
First of all, the Fondation Louis Vuitton. It’s not in the city-center but it’s so worth it.
Metro: Line 1, stop : Les Sablons
At the moment, there is the exhibition “Moma In Paris”, which is really nice, and complete, you have some art from different period. The architecture of the building is really nice too, even without the exhibition, the exterior is famous with mirrors and water. I recommend it.
If you are there during a nice weather day, you can also discover the very famous Bois de Boulogne for a walk!

Then, if you like to walk in Paris, which is so pleasant when its not rainy, I would recommend a walk starting in Le Jardin des Tuileries (metro stop: Les Tuileries). Cross the park, in the direction of the place de La Concorde, at this exit of the park in front of the place of La concorde you can find the museum de l’Orangerie.
Then you just continue and cross the bridge “Pont de la Concorde”, where you can admire a magnificent view on the Eiffel Tower. Then, if you feel like it, you can have a drink in one of the peniche on the Seine side.
You can now continue the walk straight toward the Pont Alexandre III and cross this famous bridge. You will be next to le Petit Palais and le Grand palais, which are two amazing museums! Then you continue on your left and you will find the Champs Elysées And here you can walk through until the Arc de Triomphe! ( See pictures below)

One other nice walk, that I recently discovered, is the street Rue de Turenne, where there are a lot of art galleries, in particular the gallery Perrotin, with original and funny work. The artists change often!
Finally, the last itinerary I recommend is in Le Marais, for me, the best area in Paris, where you can walk in all the little streets and lose yourself. You will discover some amazing places to stop in and eat something.
Do not forget the culture part, in one of these streets there is the Musée Picasso (5 Rue de Thorigny). The museum is free for people ages 18 to 26-years-old.
