There’s a post I’ve had at the back of my mind for a little while now, but never quite got around to creating! It’s the Instagram Guide to Paris. The most commonly asked question I get on Instagram is always: “what are the best photo spots in and around Paris?” In truth, the answer is probably different for everyone! Whether you shoot a more urbex vibe (in which case, head to la Defense) or a more delicate floral style will determine where you should be going! However, that doesn’t mean The not-to-be-missed photo spots in the city of love.
However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a couple of not-to-be-missed photo spots in the city of love that everyone will enjoy. Within this guide, you’ll find places of historic note, places to watch the golden hour and plenty of photo-worthy spots…
With an amazing view over Paris and even more to discover below ground, you can’t go wrong in devoting at least an afternoon to visiting the Paris Pantheon. In France, one of the highest achievements a French citizen can obtain is to be interred in the Pantheon. Once a church dedicated to the patron saint of Paris, Saint Genevieve, the building is now the final resting place of dozens of citizens of note.
Here, you’ll find the graves of people like Voltaire and Marie-Curie. The pantheon is also home to Foucault’s pendulum. A world-renowned design, this 67-metre timepiece is a copy of the original pendulum, which is now housed in Musée des Arts et Metiers. It was through this pendulum that Foucault was able to prove that the earth was round!
