20 Most Instagrammable Places in Paris

From the quaintest of cobblestone alleyways to the most epic panoramic views over the City of Lights, here is a collection of 20 most instagrammable places in Paris.

Where to begin when describing a place like Paris? The ever-fantasized, ever-sought after tourist destination of the century, the one and only city of love. It certainly brings every postcard, photograph, and painting to life through its monumental and historic magnitude. And let’s not neglect its endless cliques, which it suitably lives up to in every way.

The buildings undoubtedly epitomize the meaning of “Parisian” charm. Ornate in every detail and romantic in age, baskets of flowers flow from every wrought-iron balcony. From the perfectly crafted lamp posts to the cobbled stone laneways, walking down the street feels like you are waltzing through a 1920’s film set.

At night- now that’s when the magic truly ignites in Old Paree. Floodlit alleyways full of bustling restaurants ooze wafts of garlic and butter and the charming spiel of French waiters. Parisians line up along the Seine River, wine, cheese and baguette in close reach, picnicking the way a picnic should surely be done. And of course, the most famous and most photographed monument in all the world comes alive with its enchanting twinkle.

My favorite ingredient to this bewitching city has to be the little carousel sitting on the river, Le Tour Eiffel providing a surreal backdrop to this dream-like playground. A soft repetitive melody sounds as the pastel-colored stallions circle rhythmically, entrancing in every way.

My fondest and most quintessentially Paris memory happened on my final night in the city. We took the chance to indulge in a multi-course dinner at a quaint restaurant we stumbled upon down a buzzing alleyway. After being greeted by a man playing the harpsichord, a basket of the freshest bread was placed on the red and white checkered table cloth in front of us. Red wine in hand, we proceed to devour a plate full of escargot, disguised in an enveloping of garlic and buttery goodness. It took a moment to sink in that we were really experiencing this moment, sitting eating escargot down a cobblestone alleyway in Paris. There really is no place quite like Paris.

Without further ado, let me show you some of my favourite photo spots that I stumbled upon during my time in Paris!
