"Savour authentic Paris street scenes" The St Denis Arch Tip by aussirose

The St Denis Arch, Paris: 3 reviews and 5 photos

  Authentic Paris street scene
by aussirose

Paris to me is not just the usual tourist icons. I wanted to walk around the back streets and see the real Paris complete with quaint local cafes, bikes, cute cars etc.

We decided not to do the vt meet Sunday activities but instead we booked a photo tour of the back streets of the Latin Quarter - more about that in the next tip.

To me, a holiday is not a real holiday unless you experience the local culture and this photo tour afforded me an opportunity to do just that. Here you will see an authentic Parisian car in front of a quaint local shop. Yes, I photo shopped it for dramatic effect ;o)

But please go for a wander around the back streets the next time you visit Paris and savour the authentic scenes.

Directions: Metro Strasbourg St Denis
