Macarons at a local's place by the Eiffel Tower
Join me for a macarons making class in my apartment, where I will teach you all the tricks to make one of the greatest French treats : Macarons ! First, you will choose the macaron flavours that we will make during the class. I will then show you the whole process from scratch, for you to be able to reproduce them at home. Feel free to ask questions all along the process, it's a great way to learn ! Once ready, we will pack your macarons into transport boxes for you to take away and enjoy as dessert or side to coffee. Macarons are always best eaten the next day, but it can be hard to wait.

Your guide to Paris

What do locals do in Paris?

There’s more than one way to experience the French capital’s 20 diverse districts. Here are some of the best things to do to experience the local culture. Something to note: A simple “bonjour” and “merci” go a long way as you get to know the people who call Paris home.

Hit the markets

Paris is a shopping destination, and while designer brands are big here, locals often find the best threads and wares in their markets across the city. Vintage and antiques are hot commodities in places such as the beloved Saint-Ouen flea market.

For fresh produce and flowers, head to the open-air Marché Bastille in between the Bastille and Richard Lenoir metro stations from Thursday to Sunday. Always check days of operation ahead of time, but most of the established markets run on a regular schedule.

Dine in the 11th arrondissement

The Parisian food and wine scene is having a moment with a more diverse set of cuisines (think African- and Asian-inspired dishes, natural wine cellars), and one of the best areas to experience that firsthand is in the 11th.

Savor art and coffee in the 3rd arrondissement

This district, which makes up part of Le Marais, bustles most hours of the day. Its central location makes it perfect for starting a day, and with many cafes and art galleries lining its old-world streets, you may end up here longer than you expected getting lost in its charm.

Relax along Canal Saint-Martin

Locals and visitors alike can be found in the 10th arrondissement, but in-the-know residents of Paris can point you in the direction of the best boulangeries for fresh goods, noodle shops, and street food.


What are unique things to do in Paris?

See the famous sights in new ways

Whether you’ve lived here all your life, or you’re a first-time visitor, the city’s famous monuments will always strike a chord. Experience them in new ways such as a comedian-led tour of the Louvre, on bike tours to see hidden sights, yoga under the Eiffel Tower, during a scavenger hunt in Musée d'Orsay, and an indulgent food tour of Montmatre.

Take a cooking class

Home to some of the most delectable baked goods on the planet, try your hand at making croissants or macarons with professional chefs there to teach you the techniques.

Discover speakeasies and wine bars

Nightlife buzzes in the 9th and 10th arrondissements, where you can find some of the best cocktails in town. For hidden speakeasies and rich stories of famous poets and artists, go out with local experts to places such as Montmatre, Le Marais, and Pigalle. No matter where you end up, there’s nothing like seeing famous monuments such as Arc de Triomphe, Palais Garnier, and the Moulin Rouge illuminated at night.

Go deeper into Parisian culture

Get past the stereotypes of berets and baguettes, and you understand that Paris is far more diverse. Experience Black history on fashion and art tours that celebrate the large populations of North Africans and sub-Saharan people who settled in areas such as the 18th arrondissement in the 1970s.
