Tips for traveling to Paris for the first time
There are a few things that you should know when visiting Paris for the first time:
Must eat food in paris
We are convinced that love goes through the stomach so eating is surely part of the romantic things to do in Paris.
If you have decided to not eat your breakfast in the hotel, it's probably a great idea. You can run to the bakery on the corner and buy fresh baguettes and croissants or you can go out and start your first day in Paris with a proper Parisian breakfast.
Café Carette was created in 1927 and we recommend the almond croissants, the hot chocolate and the macarons. The macarons are probably the creamiest - "moelleux" in French - in Paris.
There are 3 addresses in Paris: Place de Trocadéro, Place de Vosges and Place du Tertre.
Lunch & Dinner
Le Relais Gascon
Le Relais Gascon is probably best known for their giant salads. These come with potato chips having garlic flavor and are simply delicious. We recommend going here for a lunch, after visiting the Montmartre and Sacre-Coeur area. The restaurant is around the corner from the Square Rictus where you find the famous "I Love You Wall".
Second on our list is Tribeca. Our favorite place for their "Camembert roti aux truffes". It's melted cheese with truffle sauce and salad. You can eat it with fresh traditional baguette and a proper red wine.
Tribeca Paris is very close to our favorite ice cream shop Amorino. If you go there, try the chocolate flavor called Inimitable.
If you have time to try Café Louis-Philippe, we recommend the oysters and the cherry sauce duck filet. They also have the very French escargots with pesto filling. A delight !
The restaurant is very close to the Ile Saint Louis and Le Marais area. So you can explore those places easily.
