The 17 most Instagrammable places in Paris

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.

2/ Louvre

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.

5/ Panthéon

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.
