The Coolest Walking Route Through Paris (With a Wonderful Overnight Stay)

Paris, one of the largest cities in Europe and a classic among city trips! Whether you go in the spring, summer, winter or fall, Paris is always a good idea. There are so many things to visit and see in Paris, but how exactly do you start? I would like to give you my favorite walking route through Paris to see as much as possible in three days. After all that walking and visiting, you naturally want to chill out in a special hotel (we would love to tell you more about the incredibly nice The Hidden Hotel), and have a nice bite to eat. Discover my favorite tips below!

Three Great Walking Routes Through Paris Through Which You See the Best of the City

You naturally want to see as much of the city as possible during your weekend trip. We have therefore mapped out a walk through Paris per day.

Paris Walking Tour Including the Louvre, Notre Dame & Pantheon

The second day it is time for some history and culture of the city of love. We start in the Louvre. Did you know that museums in Paris are free for children under 26? So don’t get caught here! The most famous work in the Louvre is of course the Mona Lisa. But the museum also has many other beautiful works.

If you are interested in art this is a really beautiful place. Tip: visit the Louvre in the morning or late in the evening, then you don’t have to queue as long and you can admire the works a little more calmly. At the Louvre you will find Jardin des Tuileries. This garden is really ideal for relaxing and relaxing.

Notre Dame is a twenty minute walk from the Louvre. It’s a shame that the building partly burned down in 2019, but that doesn’t make it any less worth a visit. Around the building you can follow how they are refurbishing the cathedral, quite impressive! A fifteen minute walk further you will find the Pantheon. This beautiful building is a tomb for famous French people.

Who is buried here is decided by the French president. They are very mysterious, so definitely not to be missed during your visit to Paris. The Pantheon is located in the middle of the Latin Quarter. This neighborhood has many nice bars and restaurants. Fun fact: Paris has a lot of hidden bars or speakeasies. So be sure to look for this one! Those who prefer to relax in nature can continue to the Jardin du Luxembourg.

Paris Walking Tour Including Eiffel Tower & Arc de Triomphe

On your first day in Paris you immediately want to see the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe, then we will do that too!

Start your day at the Arc de Triomphe. This huge triumphal arch is the third largest in the world. Under the triumphal arch you will find the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which was built after the First World War. It is a memorial site for the unknown soldiers for both the First and Second World Wars.

You can also go up the arch itself for a wow-view over the Champs Elysee. This beautiful shopping street starts/ends at the Arc de Triomphe. So you can easily continue walking here. The shopping street has luxury boutiques such as Dior, but also larger chains such as Zara. So shop to your heart’s content! When you are almost at the end of the Champs Elysee, you can easily walk to Trocadero. This beautiful square and park gives you, I think, the best and most beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower.

Many boat trips also start nearby, ideal if you want to take a (guided) trip on the Seine. Many organizations offer guided tours where you get a little explanation about Paris and the various sights.

The square is also very close to the Eiffel Tower and it is most beautiful when the sun goes down. If you stay long enough on the square in front of the Eiffel Tower, you can see the lights come on. Which is really bizarrely beautiful! For the fans of heights, you can also go up the Eiffel Tower. You can go up to the second floor with stairs or with the elevator. You can book tickets for the Eiffel Tower online. Do you want to go all the way to the top? Then it is best to check on the spot whether it is available.

This Walking Route Through Paris Takes You to Sacre Coeur & Montmartre

On the hill Montmartre in the 18th arrondissement you will find the Sacre Coeur. This basilica is one of the most famous buildings in Paris. To get here you first have to climb about 222 steps or take the cable car. Once you get to the top you have an amazing view over a large part of Paris. Of course you can also visit the basilica. The basilica is located in the Montmartre.

Be sure to take the time to walk around this neighborhood. There is a completely different atmosphere than downstairs in the center of Paris itself. It is also called the Schilderswijk, so you will certainly receive a lot of offers to have a painting made of yourself. On Place du Tertre, a short distance from Sacre Coeur, you can see many painters at work. Everyone is really nice!

Oh and if you want to take the most romantic photo on your trip, you have to make a stop at Le mur des je t’aime. This wall has the words ‘I love you’ in several languages. How beautiful is that!

Of course Paris has many more sights than the above. Just think of this one:

  • The hip district of Le Marais
  • Le Center Pompidou
  • Hotel Des Invalides

There are plenty of museums, like these 3 museums. Take your time to see everything in Paris. It’s one of the largest cities in Europe, so get that pedometer ready! Is all the walking a bit too much for you? Then you can also rent electric scooters, bicycles or even mopeds via an app to tour around. The metro is also not very complicated.

Where to Stay in Paris?

After all that visiting and walking through Paris, you naturally want to chill out in an amazingly good hotel! Then I can only recommend The Hidden Hotel in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. This bizarrely beautiful hotel allows you to completely relax within a minute.

The rooms are very cozy and stylishly furnished and have a lovely bamboo bed to fall asleep like a baby. As a guest you are also invited to drink a cocktail in their bar that is completely adapted to your wishes. You only have to indicate what you like to drink and the bartender will be happy to prepare it for you. Still in doubt about where to dine? The staff of Hidden Hotel will be happy to help you find the ideal restaurant.

In the morning, a fresh breakfast buffet is ready for you, such as different types of juices, fruit, yogurt, granolas and of course croissants and pain-au-chocolats. All products are organic and organic, and you can really taste it! On weekends there is even a hot buffet where they are happy to prepare a fresh egg for you.

Hidden hotel is located in the 17th arrondissement and is less than a five minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe. So you’re close to one of the most beautiful buildings in Paris, but you’ll still have little or no problem with street noise. In short, the ideal place to relax in Paris.
