One area in Paris that is full of art, culture and good food is Le Marais, it’s just off the Rue de Rivoli in the 3rd and 4th arrondissement. We booked an apartment off Airbnb for 4 nights and used it as our base for our stay. Very convenient and easy to get to most of the big attractions in Paris, very walkable as well. Two places that we loved were Legay Choc (a patisserie) and Le Coude Fou (a very authentic French restaurant). Both are in the heart of Le Marais. The Pain au Chocolat’s at Legay Choc are to die for, by far the best we had on the trip. We were literally there every morning for more.
My lovely girlfriend took me for a cruise on the Seine. Was a really fun night, great French cuisine and great enjoying Paris at night. French food is very rich, full of cheeses, cream and dairy. It was a very romantic experience, although I did spot a few families! I’d imagine quite a few proposals would have been made at this time as it seemed to be the perfect opportunity to do so.
