Your Paris Recommendations // What to do, see and eat in Paris, France.

Your Top Paris Recommendations.

I had a work trip to Paris scheduled for last week and recently asked you for some of your favorite recommendations of things to do, see and eat in the city of lights, and received several messages asking me to share what was submitted. Given this week’s tragic fire at Notre Dame it was truly bittersweet that my meeting ended up being postponed and trip canceled – Paris was part of my first international trip and will always hold a very special place in my heart as it helped introduce me to the wonders of travel and the benefits of stepping outside of your comfort zone and seeing somewhere new.

Despite my postponed return, I still wanted to still pass along the recommendations you shared with me as it seems like lots of you are heading to Paris in the near future. So without further ado, some of your favorite places in the city:
