Planning a trip to Paris

Hi everyone! Hope you’re enjoying these first few days of true spring ūüôā If you’ve seen my last post you’ll know that I’ll be heading to Paris this weekend for two days of wandering my favourite city.

Ol√° a todos! Espero que estejam a gostar destes primeiros dias de Primavera a s√©rio ūüôā Se tiverem visto o meu √ļltimo post, j√° sabem que vou a Paris este fim-de-semana para dois dias a explorar a minha cidade favorita.

I’ve been to Paris a few times and in those trips I’ve covered the main attractions, museums and sights – this time, I’m planning on exploring more of the locals’ Paris, and finding some less known gems. Here’s a look at what I’ve been using for inspiration…

J√° fui a Paris algumas vezes e nessas viagens vi a maior parte dos museus e monumentos principais – desta vez, estou a planear explorar mais da Paris dos Parisienses e encontrar algumas p√©rolas menos conhecidas. Aqui fica um resumo do que me tem servido de inspira√ß√£o…

The New Paris – Lindsey Tramuta

This book is a really detailed look at how Paris is honouring its traditional culture, while embracing new ways of living. From new coffee shops and restaurants, to new shops and fashion brands, it’s all in there, and it’s so comprehensive! The photography (by Charissa Fay) is gorgeous as well, making this a lovely book to go through!

Este livro √© um olhar detalhado sobre como Paris honra as suas tradi√ß√Ķes culturais ao mesmo tempo que abra√ßa novas formas de vida. Desde novos caf√©s e restaurantes, a novas lojas e marcas de moda, est√° l√° tudo e √© t√£o abrangente! As fotografias (de Charissa Fay) tamb√©m est√£o lind√≠ssimas, o que ajuda a que este seja um livro super agrad√°vel de folhear.

Sundays in Paris – Yasmin Zeinab

For someone who has gotten used to the UK’s culture of having shops open on Sundays, finding yourself in Paris on a Sunday might be a bit of a surprise – most shops will be closed. But Yasmin Zeinab made it her passion project to explore Paris by finding (and trying) what was open on Sundays – from caf√©s, to restaurants, to attractions. As I’ll be there for a large part of Sunday I was thrilled to get this book! I created a map on Google Maps with some of the places suggested, and that has become my list for this trip.

Para algu√©m que j√° se habituou ao Reino Unido, onde as lojas est√£o abertas aos domingos, dar por si em Paris ao domingo √© uma surpresa – a maior parte das lojas est√£o fechadas. Mas Yasmin Zeinab abra√ßou o projecto de explorar Paris ao descobrir (e experimentar) o que estava aberto aos domingos – de caf√©s, a parques e museus. Como l√° vou estar uma boa parte de domingo, fiquei felic√≠ssima de encontrar este livro! J√° fiz um mapa no Google Maps com algumas das sugest√Ķes e isso tornou-se na minha lista para esta viagem.

Pathport’s ‘A more unpretentious Paris’

Pathport recently released a city guide they posted for a lesser know, less touristy Paris. The guide can be bought on their website and immediately downloaded, and it has great suggestions for places to visit, like beautiful parks, museums, and charming streets. And at the end it has the option to see all the places mentioned on Google Maps – that combined with my own map inspired by Sundays in Paris has completed my plan for the two days!

O Pathport lan√ßou recentemente um guia para uma Paris menos conhecida e menos tur√≠stica. O guia pode ser comprado no site com download imediato e tem √≥ptimas sugest√Ķes de s√≠tios para visitar, como parques lindos, museus e ruas cheias de charme. E no final tem a op√ß√£o de ver todas as sugest√Ķes no Google Maps – isso, combinado com a minha lista inspirada pelo Sundays in Paris completou o meu plano para os dois dias!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this quick guide to how I’ve discovered new places to explore in Paris! Let me know if you’ve read these guides as what your thoughts were.

Espero que tenham gostado do meu guia de como descobrir novos sítios para explorar em Paris! Digam-me de já leram estes livros e o que acharam.
