How We Got To Paris?
London → Paris (Easyjet)
Review: Budget no frills airline but gets you from A to B, also as a plus size passenger I find the seats to be comfortable with plenty of room.
How We Got Around The City?
Mode: Metro | Uber
ℹ: We used the RER B to get from the airport to the city center and it was around €10 each roughly for a single way.
Where We Stayed?
What We Did?
Review: Such an amazing food tour of Paris, and also a great way to explore St Germain.
The food was excellent, a variety of cheeses, breads, pastries and macarons.
ℹ: As I am under 26 and an EU citizen it was free for me to climb to the top of the Arc
Review: As I am under 26 and an EU citizen it was free for me to climb to the top of the Arc, alongside free access to most of Paris’ major attractions including the Louvre and Versailles.
However I think my partner paid about €12.
It was a hard slog, not an easy climb for us and I wouldn’t recommend it if you have mobility issues.
ℝ: I still recommend visiting especially if you’re not crowd phobic like me! We spent about 3hrs wandering.
ℹ: My entry into Versailles was free because I am an EU citizen under 26 however I think ticket price is about €15 per adult.

We caught the RER C to Versailles from St Michel and walked from the station. It’s not far at all. Tip, go inside and buy your tickets before getting into the giant line which we thought were to buy the tickets so had to line up again after we realized.
Versailles was stunning however the experience for me was dampened due to the mass crowds, lots people pushing, walking in front of cameras so in the end I couldn’t wait to leave.
If the amount of people was limited per day this would have been amazing. I still recommend visiting especially if you’re not crowd phobic like me! We spent about 3hrs wandering.
Review: We visited Notre dame early in the AM when there were no people outside, we took some photos and then went inside.
Recommend going early as the cathedral was empty save for a mass that was being held.
It was such a special experience crowd free.
Review: We stopped off in St Germain for some treats from Pierre Herme and L’eclair de genie before we headed to the park area outside the Eiffel Tower to eat.
As we went to the top of the Arc we chose not to do the Tower because it was crazy busy.
Review: We had to catch the metro to Montmatre from Trocadero station to Anvers for our final nights stay.
The afternoon was spent wandering Montmatre, and chilling out outside Sacre Couer with the crowds.
We went inside but quickly got out because it was so busy and revisited early next morning when it was empty.
Review: We visited the show with standard seats, it was very cramped but we were close to the stage.
Very touristy but we usually see a show when we go away in the evening and this was it. My partner enjoyed it more than I did, although it was good.
Probably wouldn’t recommend advise children as the show is long and contains nudity.
It’s something I’m glad I’ve done and would only do once.
Where We Ate?
Price Point: $$$
Review: We found this restaurant down a small alley next to the Pantheon and thought it must be good as it’s hidden from tourist sight, it was delicious.
The atmosphere was so Parisian and the staff friendly.
I ordered the best onion soup in France followed by Pork Cheeks and my partner had an incredible Tarte Tatin for dessert.
Price Point: $$$$
Review: We visited this restaurant because we found it on TA and it was down a small side alley so didn’t look overly touristy, it was decent food but not to our taste.
My partner ordered duck which was served very rare, he didn’t like this much and I had beef stew which was a little chewy. It was pricey too so we probably wouldn’t recommend.
Price Point: $$$
Review: Delicious! We found this restaurant on Trip advisor and had to use google maps from Sacre Couer to the restaurant but it was only about a 10 minute walk and so easy to find.
We probably wouldn’t have just stumbled upon it though, it’s away from the touristy restaurants in the main square and so yummy!
I had lamb with a creamy garlic sauce and mash, my partner had quail in lavender and honey sauce. Both meals were incredible but the quail was something else!
For dessert I had a chocolate and hazelnut fondant which was perfect, my partner had apple crisps and white chocolate mousse.
This restaurant is small, and local with local produce. We didn’t book and got in as soon as they opened but I would recommend booking. Not expensive and about the same price as the other restaurants we visited in Paris.
