Our trip to Paris this past Fall is easily one of our favorites to date. I enjoyed the area we stayed in as it wasn't too touristy but was within walking distance of all the major attractions. We stayed in the Marais, which is such a vibrant and interesting arrondissement. Below is a list of our favorite places that we discovered. Thanks to Lindsey of Lost In Cheeseland for the hotel recommendation. Hotel Jules & Jim's staff provided wonderful restaurant recommendations/reservations and the busy (but not full) bar was a welcome refuge after a long day of sightseeing.
Stay: Hotel Jules & Jim.
Eat: L'Aller Retour - I can't say enough good things about this place. It's currently my favorite from the trip.
Do: Context Paris Walking Tour - Best thing to do in Paris.
See: Rodin Museum. - Not as popular as the Louvre but we loved it. A great place to just sit amongst the beautiful sculptures and listen to the sounds of the city.
Eat: Blend - Gourmet hamburgers in Paris with a great selection of craft beer. Be still my heart!
See: Pantheon - An amazing piece of architecture that is often overlooked by most tourists.
Do: La Cuisine Paris - A wonderful and unique baking/cooking class experience. Their cooking classes are fun and easily navigated by even the most inexperienced cook/baker.
Sip: Loustic - A fantastic cafe. We ended up coming back here after meeting up with a friend. The coffee was SO good!
