My Favorite Paris Walk

As a considerable Parisian habitant, my favorite walks in Paris are those that include small streets that hid beauty. Be it a boulangerie, a baroque church, a little square, i love scenic views but i hate crowds.

Here is my top list of Paris walks, that i‘do again and again. And whenever i woke up or quit my office early enough, you’d find me here.

PARIS 1er - 2éme

Opera - Quatre Septembre - Place de Victoire - Rue Montorgueil

This route is amazing because it is a mix of green space, iconic buildings, a range of beautiful Haussmanian architecture, several delicious restaurants and and a curated vintage shop. For the last five years, this is my hood. I work here, eat here, shop here, picnicking here, after working here.

I usually start my walk from the Opera Garnier (Metro line : 8,9,7,3) and head to Rue Saint Anne via Quatre Septembre. Rue Saint Anne is known to host Japanese and Korean restaurant, supermarket and boulangerie. Aki boulangerie is a must, they sell a lot of japanese pattiserie and some of them inspired by French pattiserie, twisted with Japanese flavors.

After grabbing a cup of matcha latte and a matcha bread, i would stop by Librarie Voyageurs where they have thousands options of travel guide. I often lost in time in their shop, only by looking at all of these guides make me want to travel even more. Then i continue to Jardin du palais royal to enjoy my book and my matcha latte before going on by small and a bit hidden passage to place des petits-pères.

From here, i continue to Rue de Montorgueil where my daily office is. Then my daily routine starts.

Rue Montorgueil is the street you must pass. Not only it hosts the oldest boulangerie, Stohrer, it also hosts cool brand like Cos, & Other Stories, Les Slips Français,...

Rue de Martyr - Moulin Rouge - Abbesses - Sacre Cœur

I love these streets and quartier for its scenic views, beautiful restaurants, pastel coloured houses and the ambiance. While the 1er and the 2ème are very much familial, these streets here are more alive. When tourists are not around, locals would be out in terrace, dancing after emptying two bottles of wine...
