Are you looking for the most Instagrammable spots in Paris? After 6 days of exploring Paris, I’ve put together 30 most Instagrammable places in Paris!
Paris has been at the top of my bucket list for years and I’m so happy I was able to visit this beautiful city this past spring. Paris was bigger than I had imagined. I’m so grateful I had Karya with me to guide me through the whole city! She’s visited Paris multiple times and was recently there for Paris Fashion Week in February 2022 to shoot street style. She created a full agenda for us to explore Paris in the mornings and hit different spots, museums, and food places in the afternoon and evenings.
Here are the 30 Most Instagrammable Places in Paris:
1. Pont de Bir Hakeim
Pont de Bir-Hakeim is a bridge that connects the 15th and 16th arrondissement. This two-level bridge offers beautiful views of the Eiffel Tower.
2. Lookout on the Pont Bir Hakeim
As we were walking down Pont Bir Hakeim, we saw this lookout with a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower!
3. Café de Flore
Address: 172 Bd Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris, France
If you want to eat at Café de Flore for breakfast, I highly recommend coming as early as possible. We were seated right away when we arrived at the café around 8:30 am on a weekday. The service was great, and I enjoyed my omelet and coffee.
4. Arc de Triomphe
Address: Pl. Charles de Gaulle, 75008 Paris, France
Completed in 1836, the Arc de Triomphe is an iconic landmark in France. Napoleon I commissioned the Arc de Triomphe. The arch was built to celebrate the achievements of the French armies and honor those who fought and died for France.
5. Rue de l’Université
Address: 223 Rue de l’Université
If you’re near Champ de Mars and want an up-close photo with the Eiffel Tower, you can walk over to this street.
Address: Rue de l’Abreuvoir, 75018 Paris, France
If you want to check out a charming street in Paris, I recommend stopping by Buste de Dalida. This square and bronze statue is dedicated to one of France’s most celebrated singers. This square also faces a picturesque view of this street.
7. La Maison Rose
Address: 2 Rue de l’Abreuvoir, 75018 Paris, France
La Maison Rose is a French restaurant with an adorable pink and green exterior. While we didn’t get a chance to eat here, we did snap a few photos as we were walking through the street.
8. Le Consulat
Address: 18 Rue Norvins, 75018 Paris, France
On our way to Sacre-Coeur, we also stopped by Le Consulat. Karya ate her during her February Paris trip, and she enjoyed it. We didn’t get a chance to eat here since we walked by before they were open.
9. Pink Mamma
Address: 20bis Rue de Douai, 75009 Paris, France
I’ve seen Pink Mamma featured repeatedly on Instagram. I know the restaurant is beautiful on the inside. We weren’t sure if they had outdoor seating, so we decided to pass on eating inside the restaurant. The building is pink and still a cute spot for a photo!
10. Le Jardin du Luxembourg
Address: 75006 Paris, France
The Luxembourg Gardens was only a 3-minute walk from our hotel. Jardin du Luxembourg date back to 1611. Marie de Medici purchased the land and the palace on the property after her son King Henri IV was assassinated.
11. Palais Garnier
Address: Pl. de l’Opéra, 75009 Paris, France
While we didn’t get the chance to wander inside, we did stop by to see this Italian-style opera house while exploring Paris.
Address: Pl. du Panthéon, 75005 Paris, France
Located in the Latin Quarter of Paris, the Pantheon sits at the original burial site of Saint Genevieve. National heroes of France are buried in necropoleis like Voltaire, Marie Curie, and Simone Veil.

Completed in 1900, the Pont Alexander Bridge was named after the Russian Tsar Alexander III. The bridge was built on time for the World Fair.
14. Av. de Camoens
Address: 75116 Paris, France
We originally tried to take Eiffel Tower photos at Trocadero but it was so busy, that we decided to pass and walk to Av. de Camoens. We were so relieved that it wasn’t crowded, and we were able to snap a few photos of the Eiffel Tower. This street definitely belongs as one of the most instagrammable places in Paris.
15. Palais Galleria
Address: 10 Av. Pierre 1er de Serbie, 75116 Paris, France
If you’re looking to learn about fashion history in France, the Palais Galleria is a great stop. Plus the grounds are beautiful!
16. The Centre Pompidou

This was one of my favorite museums we went to in Paris. I also loved that there was such a great view of the Eiffel Tower from the 5th floor.
17. Petit Palais
Address: Av. Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris, France
The front of Petit Palais (small palace) is beautiful. However, it was so bright and sunny when we stopped by that we decided to snap a few photos in the back of the building.
18. Domaine National du Palais-Royal
Address: 8 Rue de Montpensier, 75001 Paris, France
One of the most unique features about Palais-Royal is the striped columns in the courtyard. Palais-Royal is a historic monument in Paris. It features three centuries of architecture. Palais-Royal was also inhabited by the Regency of Anne of Austria as well as the Orleans family in 1661.
19. Louvre Museum

The Louvre Museum is probably one of the most famous museums around the world. The Louvre is the largest museum in the world. This museum is home to da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s sculptures, as well as 6,000 works across 5,000 years of Egyptian history.
We decided to stop by the Louvre to snap photos in the morning. We were surprised by 8:45 am, there was a huge line of people waiting to be let into the Louvre. Next time I’m in Paris, I’ll set aside a full day to explore the Louvre.
20. Musee Rodin (the Sculpture Garden)
Address: 77 Rue de Varenne, 75007 Paris, France
Musee Rodin houses many works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. Musee Rodin opened in 1919 and features The Thinker, The Gates of Hell, as well as the Inner Voice. Musee Rodin wasn’t originally on my list of most Instagrammable places in Paris. But after we wandered through the museum, we walked through the gardens I was so inspired to take a few photos.
