Day 1 – Getting settled: République & Bastille

Today, we arrived in Paris. The main projects today were to get acquainted with our new neighbourhood, and find some Parisian sustenance.

Day 2 – The heart of the city: Notre-Dame & the Islands

Today, we ventured out of the neighbourhood and headed to the centre of the city, the home of Paris' Gothic gem, Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Day 3 – Antiques at Marché aux Puces

This day was dedicated to experiencing the gems of the French antique world. Our treasure hunt started at Paris' premiere antique market: Le Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen.

Day 4 – Sunday Flower & Bird Market, Picnic on the Canal

After a fairly intense day yesterday, we took today at a slower pace and ventured down to Île de la Cité to find the Sunday Flower & Bird Market.

Day 5 – Montmartre: The Moulin Rouge & Sacré Cœur Basilica

The plan today was to explore one of Paris' oldest and most famous neighborhoods: "La Butte" (The Hill), also known as Montmartre.

Day 7 – One sweet day: Louvre, Tuileries Garden, Concord, Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Avenue des Champs-Élysées & Arc de Triomphe

Today was a big day. With our Paris 4-day Museum Pass in hand, it was time to do some serious site-seeing. The goal was to get from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe before dinner. Could we do it?

Day 8 – Versailles

Today, we ventured to the Parisian suburbs to explore a relic of French royalty's decadent past, Versailles.

Day 9 – The Left Bank: Musée d'Orsay, Saint-Germain-des-Prés

The plan today was to start with a helping of 19th century art at the Musée d'Orsay, and then stroll through Hemingway's old hood, Boulevard Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

Day 10 – The Latin Quarter: Marché Mouffetard, Pantheon, The Sorbonne, Luxembourg Garden + The Pompidou Centre

This Saturday began with a trip to one of Paris' oldest markets, took us past one of Europe's oldest universities, and ended in the company of some of the world's finest modern art.

Day 11 – July 14, Bastille Day

Today was a very special day. By sheer luck, our vacation to Paris also overlapped with France's National holiday, Bastille Day, which falls on July 14th of every year.

Day 14 – Au revoir, Paris

Fourteen days and thirteen nights later, it was time to say goodbye to the city that had changed our lives forever. It's true what they say – Paris really is "The City of Love", and it was impossible not to fall in love with her.
