“If you’re ready for another bite, head directly to Marché des Enfants-Rouge and sample the Moroccan food at Le Traiteur Marocain. You won’t be able to resist it once you look at what’s on offer!”

There you can not only try the Moroccan tagine but also explore the gorgeous architecture, or take public transport along the Seine river giving you a great view of the city.

Visit Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

“You will struggle to remember that you’re in the metropolis once immersed in this natural retreat.”

It has everything – a lake, a waterfall, a quiet atmosphere and stunning views. Exactly what you need to take a breather in this vibrant city.

Learn to cook like a French Chef

Why not enjoy French cooking at home too? The Globe Trotting Teacher recommends you attend a French cooking class with La Cuisine Paris to learn how exactly the best melt-in-your-mouth French croissants are made.

“Instead of just eating the best croissant, you’ll have the chance to make some!”

Check out The Chateau Fontainebleau

According to Theatre in Paris, The Chateau Fontainebleau is a great alternative to Versailles. You can get there via a short train journey from Paris.

“With just a quick ride outside the city, you can explore the chateau, visit the small nearby town of Avon, before heading into the Fontainebleau Forest for an afternoon nature hike.”

Go there to satisfy your longing for the Parisian luxury.
