Paris: Foodie Tip 3

Eiffel Tower


I’ve been to this city on the Seine three times so far, but I never stop longing to go back and walk down Champs-Élysées, pop in a random boulangerie or pâtisserie, visit my favorite labyrinth of cosy tiny streets at Montmartre, drink wine at a brasserie while enjoying the view of Notre-Dame, visit food markets and eat ice cream while sitting on a bench by the Seine and looking at the Eiffel Tower… I could make this list endless, but let me give you some practical tips. This week look out for the ten best foodie tips for Paris! Here comes tip 3.

Tip 3


Today’s tip is quite simple: picnic at Versaiiles on a beautiful summer’s day! This is what you have to do:

  • take a train to Versailles (about 40 min from the center)
  • go to a local market or food store
  • buy all the necessary ingredients for a nice picnic: French baguettes (dah!), butter, ham, cheese, basil, lettuce, mayo…. eh, what else? a bottle of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, of course, and you are pretty much set
  • go to the gardens of Versailles which are free to enter and enjoy your day!
  • take it easy:)

Try it, and you will love it!
