The most instagrammable places in Paris

The most instagrammable places in Paris

Paris is definitely one of the most beautiful cities and the most instagrammable places in the world. There are so many things to see and do there that you would probably need a year just to be able to get to know it better, visit its main attractions and try the local food.

To me, Paris has always been a perfect city, a place from a fairy tale with its gorgeous architecture and romantic bars. I’ve always dreamed of living there some day, even just for a couple of months. I would wake up every day and look at the Eiffel Tour, then have a pain au chocolat and a cup of coffee in a local boulangerie (bakery shop), and eat baguette and brie every day. Of course, my dream isn’t based on reality as it would be impossible to have an apartment with the view of the Eiffel Tour due to enormously high prices of apartments, and don’t get me started on incredibly low salaries compared to a high cost of living in Paris. Unfortunately, it is a global trend that nowadays every big city becomes almost impossible to live in because of high prices and relatively low salaries, noise and an enormous amount of people. But still, Paris is a magnificent city, and everyone should visit it at least once in their lifetime.

I have visited it so many times, but every time there is a new place I discover, and some new thing I fall in love with. This time, I wanted to show you some of the most instagrammable places in Paris in my opinion, but there are still more of them to see and take a picture of next time I visit it.

The Triumphal Arch was commissioned by Napoleon to honour all the soldiers who died in the Napoleonic wars and under it there is a tomb of the unknown soldier who died in the First World War.

It is easy to get there by Metro Lines 1, 2, 6 and RER A, Station: Charles de Gaulle Etoile.

The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is located on Champ de Mars and was named after Gustave Eiffel. It was built as the entrance to the World’s Fair in 1889. At the time it was criticised a lot by France’s leading artists and intellectuals, but with time it turned into a symbol of Paris and France. The Tower is 324m tall.

How to get there by metro: The closest Metro station to the Eiffel Tower is Champ de Mars / Tour Eiffel, line RER C. There are two other Metro stations: Ecole Militaire, line 8, and Bir-Hakeim, line 6. The best view of the Eiffel Tower is at the Trocadéro, and the station is Trocadéro on Metro Lines 9 and 6.
