We’re perennially obsessed with all things French
, and it looks like we’re not the only ones: The French capital secured the second top travel spot for 2018. If it’s your first time in the city, definitely check out all the big tourist sites such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame Cathedral. For a more low-key take on the city, avoid the always-crowded Champs-Élysées in favor of more local shopping at any of Paris’ many vintage flea markets
. The Broken Arm
, a combined boutique and café, is a great way to spend a few hours; though if a more traditional café experience is something you had in mind, local Garance Doré
recommends Télescope, Le Nemours, and the iconic Café de Flore.
