    The Lazy dog is a fabulous small design bookshop and art gallery. It’s worth visiting!

    You have probably been there before, but the Musée d’Orsay is my favorite art museum EVER!!!

    Have fun!

    Oh, and the Café Beaubourg near the Centre Pompidou (looking over the gold flower pot) serves a really good breakfast and you can eat it while sitting outside and watching the lines for the museum get longer and shorter… 🙂

    Oh, and one thing I forgot: flea markets. I liked Place d’Aligre the most because it’s in the city centre (you don’t have to travel/walk an hour to get there) and it’s a rather small, friendly square with vintage books, toys and jewellery. Here you can meet local people buying fresh fruit or selling their old things.
    (I’m not a huge fan of large markets, but if you are, visit the St. Ouen flea market that’s outside the city centre: LOTS OF things, pretty expensive, mainly for tourists)

    Två konkreta tips:

    Ett av mina favoritställen för utställningar är ett museum för nutida konst, ligger nära metrostationen Quai de la Rapée:

    Terminus Nord är ett schysst brasserie med riktigt fransk mat och atmosfär, ligger precis vid Gare du Nord:

    I really loved visiting the Decorative Arts Museum. It’s really lovely and has a bunch of different collections that are worth taking a look at. My favourites were the posters and the toys. I think you will find something that you like :

    Paris, ”la cité des lumières”: one cannot get enough of these city and all its secrets.
    I go there once or twice a year.
    A very nice cosy place to lunch very quietly in a ”hidden” little street: ”L’Heure Gourmande”, in the Passage Dauphine, near the rue mazarine. They make the best quiches and salads in a cosy atmosphere… Nearby, in the Rue Dauphine, on the corner of the rue Nesle, you have also a very nice little design-shop where they sell – among other things – the creations of Fifi de Mandirac.
    Other nice little ”poetic” shops are: Madame Bouton, in 46 rue d’orsel, where they sell only buttons (some very nice hand painted), and the shop of Adeline Klam (37 rue Galilée) is interesting for its beautiful Japanese papers.
    Another nice thing to do is the ”marché bio” (organic market?) boulevard des batignolles on saturdays (from 9 to 2PM): here you can taste and smell the real french life: the scent of dried lavender, of fresh crispy bread,… 😉
    For a nice real French breakfast, you need to go to The Coquelicot, in Montmartre (Rue des Abesses:… Delicious hot chocolate served in vintage bowld and very tasty croissants and olive bread 😉
    Wish you lots of fun in Paris, it’s a really enchanting place… Of course don’t skip THE museum for designers: Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs, where they have a very nice collection of old and new children’s toys… 😉
    Kind regards,

    Jag är själv lite nyfiken på den här butiken. Har inte varit där själv- bara sett på nätet men de verkar ha en massa fint.
    Bon voyage!

    Hi Ingela! I would advise you to go to the MARAIS (metro station St Paul). It’s a traditionnally jewish district and used to be also a gay high place. It’s totally trendy and cosy. From the center of this area, rue des Rosiers, you can go in any direction and see so many beautiful places: the Museum Carnavalet has lovely collections in addition to being a splendid building, you can go to Saint Louis island at walking distance, of course you must not miss the Place des Vosges… And for lunch i recommend ”chez Marianne” at the corner of streets ”rue des rosiers” and ”rue des hospitalieres saint gervais”. My favorite zakuskis in Paris…
