The Selfish Guide to Paris

The Selfish Guide to Paris

Mr. Selfish and I stayed in Paris for six glorious weeks. We loved every minute of it and would gladly return in a heartbeat. We were there for autumn, which was beautiful, but I have dreams of being in Paris for spring.

During our stay, Mr. Selfish and I visited most of the major tourist attractions, parks, and museums. We also found some cute cafes and eateries. Here’s my Google map for Paris:

[Disclaimer: This was our personal Google map for Paris. It is possible that not all of the pins are accurate since we did not visit all of them.]

My goal in Paris was to visit each of the twenty arrondissements. Paris is full of sights and restaurants, so I decided to organize them by arrondissement. Here is my list of each sight we visited in all of the arrondissements. It is a great overview of the places we visited in Paris.

Mr. Selfish and I also took quite a few day trips from Paris – Versailles, Giverny, Disneyland Paris, Brittany, and Parc Asterix.
