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.
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!
