Who doesn’t love a little glimpse of Paris in their Instagram feed?

The Eiffel Tower is immediately recognizable as you scroll through your pictures, iconic and always a favourite. Here are a few more snaps from France’s capital city.

Looking across at the Louvre Museum from my favourite museum in Paris, the Musée D’Orsay

Paris is gorgeous in any season

A flower shop on Rue Cler

I could go back to Paris just to sit in cafés

And to sit in all the many coloured chairs. Un café, s’il vous plait!

The peonies were still in bloom in June. Swoon!

Amorino’s gelato was dangerously close to our apartment. Surely all the walking we did made up for all the gelato + croissants!

Of course we had to make a stop at Shakespeare and Company!

Cute cars, cute windows and cute doors can be found at every turn

 Eiffel Tower fireworks on Bastille Day!
