Paris is one of the Instagrammers' favourite cities! Famous all over the world for its sumptuous architecture, its historical monuments and its lights, it is also famous for the sublime shots that photographers can bring back in their luggage or better on their feed! Here is the first part of my report about falling in love with Paris... if you are not already in love with it!

Montmartre, in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, is full of picturesque nooks and crannies for Instagrammers in search of memorable shots. And among these places, we find the unmissable Maison Rose with its little air of "country house for dolls"! The history is also marvellous and gives it even more charm: around 1850 Laure Gargallo, wife of a painter and model for Picasso, bought the adorable shack to open a family canteen for her artist friends.

The Buren columns in the main courtyard of the Palais-Royal is a work of art in the open air: 260 black and white columns ranging from 8.7 to 62cm high and spread over 3000m2. They are also a delight for instagrammers as their modern black and white design perfectly reflects the more solemn architecture that surrounds them. Created in 1986 by Daniel Buren, Buren's columns are a real tourist attraction since they allow their visitors to climb on them as they wish.

Catherine - Lifestyle

Bonjour, my name is Catherine. I live in the heart of Paris. I’ve always loved to travel and, over the years, I developed it into a real art: the right addresses, the suitcase, how to manage fatigue with my Parisian look! From Cannes to Antigua, from the red carpet to Pilates, I have to live up to the reputation. I have small apartments in Paris that I rent out. I love to personally welcome my guests and give them some recommendations about life in Paris “living like a true Parisian and not like a simple tourist in an elegant private suit in the heart of the city”.
