Butte-aux-Cailles

The Butte-aux-Cailles, a district in Paris’ 13th arrondissment, is a charming hilltop neighborhood. It has a village-like ambiance with its many quaint, cobblestone streets and façades covered with beautiful green ivy leaves.This lesser known are of Paris is definitely worth checking out for its charm and quirky, local restaurants, bars and cafés.

Early morning is best for this amazing light and a less crowded stroll to enjoy the bridge all to yourself. Perfect way to start a lovely, sunny Paris day.

Popelini

No matter where you go, French pastries simply can’t be beat. The sheer number of pâtisseries in Paris is incredible. You’re never short on a selection of the best pain au chocolat or croissant, but for something a little special, I love the cream-filled choux from Popelini for a little bite of something sweet. The cream puffs come in many flavors, vanille, rose…
