One of the best things about visiting a metropolitan city like Paris is that it is home to plenty of tourist attractions. While most of them are situated in downtown and popular areas, some of them are nestled away somewhat off the beaten paths. If you have covered most of the major attractions during Paris tours, then you will be looking forward to finding new places for sightseeing, photography, and many more.
This footbridge in the City of Lights tends to be less crowded and offers a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower. So if you are a shutterbug, this is one of the best places to go to and take picturesque snaps with the city skyline in the backdrop. The tower nicknamed “Iron Lady” and the clear blue skies offer you a scenic photo opportunity, so make the most of it during your trip.
Visit this department store around the sunset and take a lift to its eighth or ninth floor for unparalleled views of the French capital. Bonus points in case you grab a seat in the rooftop restaurant named Perruche and order a drink to enjoy the skyline view even more.
Butte Aux Cailles
This neighborhood in the 13th Parisian arrondissement has a village-like charm similar to the Montmartre, but with fewer crowds, cobbled streets, friendly natives, and great dining options. If you are a foodie, then have a bite of the Basque dish at Chez Gladines.
This public park has lush trees, a beautiful bridge above a creek, pony rides and a carousel for kids, and a path around its circumference, ideal for joggers. It also has plenty of seating for kicking back or picnics. Oddly enough, it is a less-explored destination than the Jardin du Luxembourg.
Although this public square is no well-kept secret, it is also not especially obvious from any of the encircling streets, practically guaranteeing a perpetual calm. People play a game called pétanque under the chestnut trees on the square. If you are a social butterfly, then join them. If you are more interested in people watching, then here is your opportunity.
What’s more, during the fall season, the chestnut trees’ color changes, offering a stunning sight for everyone. It is not that this is the only place in Paris, where you can experience the autumn vibes to the fullest but one of the serene areas for that.
