Spring is almost here in Paris city. It’s that time of year when tourists throng the main locations of the City of Lights in large numbers, joining a diverse set of crowds with varied interests. Read on for a top three compilation of to-do things including everything from gourmet food to photography attractions. When on Paris private tours this spring, do try these places to instill kinship with a native Parisian.
Marché Aux Puces De Vanves
This flea market in Paris seems smaller during spring because of the crowds, who all converge near the metro station ‘Porte de Vanves,’ to purchase homeware products including tableware, trinkets, antiques and salvaged boxes from house clearances. If you want second-hand toys, books and so forth, this flea market is worth a visit. It’s open each weekend from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Seafood at Huîtrerie Régis Restaurant
What better time than the fag end of March-April to eat oysters in a restaurant near Saint-Germain-des-Prés, with springtime around the corner? Huîtrerie Régis in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, sources the oysters from Marennes-Oléron and opens each day for lunch and dinner. To enjoy the taste of French seafood, try the Fine de Claire, a salty and fattened up oyster in the dine restaurant along Rue de Montfaucon Street. To go one step further, check out the true taste of white wine alongside oysters or even sea urchins, if you wish.
Stroll Through Parc Des Buttes-Chaumont
It will certainly take time to explore this spacious park in Paris City to the fullest, but don’t comprise on anything this spring. It’s situated to the northeast of 19th arrondissement and spans over sixty acres. A garden turn park on top of what was once a hilly quarry, Chaumont retains the Victorian charm of the 19th Century. If you have time on Paris private tours, make it a point to explore the suspension bridge, a manmade lake, waterfalls and the Temple of Sibylle atop a hilltop here.
Romantic couples will certainly love walking this exotic park replete with birds and trees, and soak up the sublime views of the Montmartre. If you want help with navigating the nooks and corners of the city capital, bring along a Paris tour guide.
