I think we can all agree on the fact that Paris is the most photogenic place in the world. Eiffel Tower here, gorgeous views there. But sometimes there is so much beauty you can’t choose what to capture. Here is a handy list of the most Instagrammable places in Paris to help you out.
Instagrammable places in Paris: the basics
1/ Eiffel Tower
You HAVE to visit the Eiffel Tower. Are you in good shape? Take the stairs! Sure, you’ll die about three times on your way up but you won’t have to wait in line for hours or pay half a fortune to take the elevator.
You love it or you hate it, but one thing is for sure: that glass pyramid is freakishly impressive.
3/ Arc de Triomphe
This is still kinda a hidden gem but for a couple of bucks you can climb the Arc de Triomphe (no elevator). The view is absolutely breathtaking with the Champs-Elysées and the Eiffel Tower at your feet.
4/ Jardin des Tuileries
Nothing beats hanging in one of those green chairs in the Jardin des Tuileries when the sun is out!
Not too far from the Notre-Dame: The Panthéon. With its magnificent interior, it offers the final resting place for famous people like Marie Curie, Victor Hugo, and Voltaire. The roof offers a broad view over the city.

6/ Rue Crémieux
All them pretty colors! One small street where every house is painted in a different color. It doesn’t get more Instagram than this.
7/ Rue Saint-Dominique
Because you don’t always have to stand in front of the Eiffel Tower for the prettiest view. Walk down the Rue Saint-Dominique and discover one of the best picture spots in Paris.
8/ Palais Royal
A palace in a former life but today it houses the French Ministry of Culture. The best part of it? The black and white pillars that offer so many photo opportunities.
There is so much to do around the Eiffel Tower. Get yourself a cotton candy and ride the carousel. Release your inner child!
10/ Galeries Lafayette
Did you know that if you take the escalator aaaallll the way up you can walk on the roof? And it’s gratuit!
11/ Avenue de Camoëns
See item 7.
World famous macarons. But the entire establishment is Instagram-worthy.
Walk around St-Germain-des-Prés and you’ll find that every corner offers a great photo-op.
14/ Café de Flore
One of the oldest coffee houses in Paris, known for its famous customers (Picasso!).

Awesome chocolate milk, but in order to get one, you must be patient because there might be a long cue.
