Cori studied in Paris last spring and kept an amazing blog. Luckily she is letting us steal some of her best stuff so we can pass it on to you. Of course there are the big sites of the city, but Cori filled us in on the little things she loved about Paris and her arrondissement.
1. My metro line (ligne 4) is incredible
It runs North to South in Paris, allowing me to get anywhere easily. Also, because my station is towards the end of the line, I love the certain occasions when I have the train to myself.
2. Chez Hanna
Turn down Rue des Rosiers, a cobblestone street in the Marais and you will find yourself in a falafel paradise. Resist the temptations of the men that act as falafel “dealers,” who promise you that their falafel is “the best” and find yourself at the end of the road, in front of Chez Hanna, a true culinary gem.
3. Musée de l’Orangerie
A very doable museum containing art from dealer and collector Paul Guillaume during the Belle Epoque. Originally the museum was built to house Monet’s Water Lillies, or Nymphs—and it still does upstairs. Downstairs you can find Guillaume’s collection of art from Renior, Cezanne, Modigliani and more.
4. This dog
On a walk home, finding this thrift store that was far from thrifty. Everything in it was brand new! I found Christian Dior lingerie for 36 euros. Steal.
