Paris is, in one word, magical.

From the moment we set foot onto Rue de Rivoli in Le Marais after walking up the steps from the Metro (we rode Line 1 often), it was coup de foudre (love at first sight).

The people.

The architecture.

The cobble stone streets.

The little cars and Vespas zipping past.

The language.

All of it, simply put, etait magnifique.

 Traveler tip: If you plan to visit multiple museums (and other tourist attractions) in France, look into buying a Museum Pass.

Not only does this save you a few euros, it also allows you to enter most attractions in another, expedited entrance (read: you’ll forgo standing in long lines waiting to purchase tickets and get in much quicker).

One of the best decisions we made while in Paris was to have a sunset picnic in front of the Tour d’Eiffel.  After a quick-ish stop at a local market (let’s be honest: we could spent literally hours in front of the wine and cheese sections) and a short walk, we were enjoying the best view of all of Paris, with the best wine and food, with the best and our most favorite humans.  Check this off the bucket list.
