Instagrammable Places in Paris
Eiffel Tower Instagram Spots
The Eiffel Tower is definitely the most iconic landmark of Paris, and any photo posted of it on Instagram is likely to spark that Parisienne wanderlust.
The awesome thing about the Eiffel Tower is that there are multiple Instagrammable places in Paris to capture this eye-catching sight. Here are a few you need to get photos of the Eiffel Tower from.
From Trocadero Plaza
It’s easy to see why Trocadero Plaza is one of the most popular Instagrammable places in Paris. By going to one spot, you have four different photo options.
You can also stay until nightfall to see the Eiffel Tower light up! Remember to bring a blanket for this.
Safety Tip: Since this area has a lot of tourists, pickpocketing is a possibility here. Bring a friend to take photos or set up your travel tripod for selfies in a place with less people.

Instagrammable Places in Montmartre, Paris
Montmartre is an adorable neighborhood set on the second highest hill of Paris and a neighborhood I highly recommend anyone visiting (Instagrammer or not). This gives you sweeping views of the city along with charming cafés and the Basilica of Sacré-Cœur to take photos of.
With its many highlights, you can easily spend a whole morning in this area and grab a ton of Instagram photos at once.

Le Consulat Restaurant is one of the oldest restaurants in Paris. With its striped awning and vintage-esque chairs, this building is a head-turner for all those who pass it.

Chez Eugene is a sweet little cafe with popping colors for your background. It’ll fill your photo with red stripes and occasional pops of blue.

This is the federal government office in Paris. Sounds serious but there’s this gorgeous courtyard with black and white pillars of all different heights. It’s a great place for fashion shots!
Address: 2 Rue de Montpensier, 75001 Paris, France (see on map)
Rue Crémieux is by far one of the best Instagrammable places in Paris because of how colorful the houses are. It’s also one of the few pedestrian streets with cobblestones from end to end.
There’s no exact reason why these houses are so colorful except that the residents wanted to have an oasis of tranquility within the hustle and bustle of this big city.
There are some houses that have a No Photos sign. Please respect the residents’ homes and privacy when visiting!
Address: Rue Crémieux (see on map)

Dedicated to the symbolist painter Gustave Moreau, this museum houses approximately 1,200 paintings and almost 5,000 drawings. It also includes the apartment where he once lived and worked, as well as this magnificent spiral staircase.
Address: 14 Rue de la Rochefoucauld (see on map)
