Once you're done with typical tourist spots in Paris, you would probably want to explore a bit more off-stream places. In this matter, Paris holds a true plethora of charming views, lovely corners and sweetest cafes, all waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.
My small 'city guide' won't be something groundbreaking I'm sure, but I hope it may help you find places which are, in my opinion anyway, off-stream Paris must-sees.
Starting with my favourite quarter - Montmarte. The best way to go there is naturally to take a subway - station Anvers.
Montmarte is primarily know for the Basilica of the Sacre Coeur and an amazing panorama view from the top of the hill. And when I'm talking panorama view I'm talking 'Les fabuleaux destin d'Amelie Poulin'! (remember that faded view?).
I should have warned you at be beginning - Montmarte belongs to Amelie!
There are about 300 steps to the top but the views on the city make it well worthwhile.
Right from there you should head the famous greengroces (rue Des Trois Freres). Sadly enough, there's no chance of putting your hand in a bag of seeds but the owner of the place is well familiar with people screaming 'Oh my God! It's Amelia's greengroces!', so no worries about your expression, anyways.
Not far from this place you can have a cup of coffee or gouter d'Amelie (creme brulee+coffee) in the cafe Des Deux Moulins (rue Lepic). Do believe me, no Paris trip could be complete without having those.
I also have some special tips which perhaps will make your first Paris trip much easier and enjoyable
1. Do speak French. Either you are a good speaker or you suck bat's balls at it, just give it a good try. It will evoke smile on French people faces and let you feel the real spirit of the city.
2. Don't pay attention to traffic lights. In Paris, no one really cares about these kind of silly things.
3. Use public transportation only when absolutely necessary. Paris is hidding a great many secrets which you wouldn't notice going by bus or subway.
4. Have your eyes and ears always open. You never know from which corner Parisian charm will emerge!
