Living the Parisian life – a photo diary

When I decided to visit Paris last September and asked people how many days I should spend there, I just got one answer – “even a month isn’t enough to see it all”.  I was surprised to hear this invariable answer, but decided to find out for myself by setting out for a week to the city of love. And at the end of it – I had to admit – there’s just so much art and beauty to see and relish in the city that I’m now sure it’s going to be one of the places that I would definitely go back to!

Places I visited:

While there are multitude of museums and tourist attractions in Paris, I chose the following places owing to the ease of access from where I stayed (0.5 miles from Louvre museum in the tiniest Airbnb there can be and in Montmartre) –

  • Louvre museum – Took a private group tour booked through Airbnb’s experiences
  • Palace of Versailles – We took the train from Paris and did a whole day tour
  • Walking tour starting from Tuileries Garden (Free and best way to see and hear about Paris’s history) Check it out here: Discover walks
  • Eiffel tour at day and night (Including the elevator that takes you to the top)
  • Hop-on Hop-off on the river Seine which included stops like Notre Dame, Saint Chapelle, Champs Elysees, Arc de triomphe
  • Walking tour at Montmartre (It was rated the most popular walking tour and it was well worth it. Again, FREE!) Check it out here: Discover walks


  • The prices of Hotels and Airbnb’s are almost comparable, but like always, Airbnb’s have more character.  Fun – fact: We stayed at an Airbnb that was right opposite the infamous cafe from the French movie – Amelie 
  • We heavily depended on Uber to get us around, it worked out cheaper than public transport since it was three of us.
  • We loved the walking tours and I wanna do all of them one day. You get to interact and learn about Paris from a local. What more could you ask for!
  • If you go to the Trocadero gardens in the night during Summer/early Fall, you might catch some amazing live music!
  • The Saint-Germain neighborhood is super lively during all times of the week that makes it an amazing spot to grab dinner and hang out.

Here are some glimpses of Paris that I captured on film –

The palace of Versailles in all it’s golden glory!
The Sun King seems to have gone a little overboard with the gold don’t you think 😉
