Below are some of the interesting secret spots in Paris that you many not find on the to-do list of every tourist. The best part – every tourist to the city can afford to visit these places at their own convenience.
Rue Cremieux – Bastille
This street can put a smile on anyone’s face, as it is one of the happiest streets in the city of Paris. You may feel that you have been teleported to some beautiful Caribbean island while walking the streets here. It is a small pedestrian street lined by cute and attractive houses painted in bright rainbow colors. Rue Cremieux was actually a covered street and was flooded partially in 1910. It will be best if you can visit the street around noontime, as the houses will be illuminated perfectly by the sun at this time of the day.
The Printemps Department Store Terrace
Le Printemps has remained one of the most iconic department stores in Paris since 1865. However, only a few shoppers make their way to the terrace of the store to enjoy a panoramic view of the city. To reach the terrace, you need to take the elevator to the top floor and use the escalator to move up one more floor. Step to the terrace of the building and have a 360-degree view of the city. You can feast your eyes with views stretching from Montmartre to the great Eiffel Tower. At the terrace, you will be very close to the Palais Garnier.
Parc Des Buttes-Chaumont – Northeastern Paris
This is one of the best parks in Paris and you can visit the place to see how native Parisians spend their weekends. The park is situated in Northeastern Paris and like many other parks in the city; the Parc Des Buttes-Chaumont was designed inside an abandoned quarry. It was opened in 1867 and features a towering rock placed inside a lake. You can reach the place through a suspension bridge to grab a place on the green grass to enjoy your picnic lunch. This is definitely one of the best secret spots, which the City of Lights can offer you.
