Paris. The city of lights, love, and charm. French people walking around town, baguettes in hand, cheek kissing their friends as they walk by. I am still pinching myself that I had the opportunity to go to Paris, observe the way French live their lives, and stick around for six whole days! What a chic and fascinating city. And while I was lucky enough to spend six days in Paris, there is still so much more to see and do. You could wander the city for days on end and never even scratch the surface.

With a city that can be so overwhelming, the best way to explore is neighborhood by neighborhood.  Dive into one part of town, get to know it, and then move on.  For that reason I’m highlighting my favorite Paris neighborhoods and what to do in each!
