I've visited Paris three times, but my most recent was without doubt the best... We stayed in Montmatre, towards the North West of the city. Around the corner is the fascinatingly seedy and colourful Moulin Rouge. Don't be afraid to venture off the main street to find some amazing places to grab dinner..

Certain things are a must see if you're in Paris.. The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Arch de Triumph, Champs Elysee... but they are very "tourist".. Visitors don't receive the most pleasant attention. However, take a tip to the cobbled streets of Montmatre to find quaint smokey cafes, hippy shops and small art galleries, creperies.... and the reception is totally different. Locals stop to talk to you... cafe owners smile when you try and speak their language.. the food is outstanding and the area is a tribute to France.

I recommend Paris to anyone! Especially people interested in effortless design and timeless architecture... but the most authentic experiences will be off the busy streets.
Real Paris, Montmatre
