The Best Paris Photography Locations

The most Instagrammable places in Paris

Best photo Spots in Paris.. This is a hard list to come up with because of the sheer number of beautiful places. The city of love, lights and fashion is easily one of the most photogenic places in the world.

But for the perfect photo you shouldn’t just stick to the main sights. There is more than the Eiffel Tower or the artistic quarter of Montmartre. We’ll show you the hottest and most Instagrammable spots in Paris. But don’t forget to enjoy everything else Paris has to offer whilst snapping away.

#1 Rue Cremieux

With its charming houses and colourful façades, Rue Cremieux looks completely different to the rest of Paris. It was shaped by Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann. The small, pedestrianised street lies somewhat further away from the main attractions like the Arc de Triomphe. Our hotel in central Paris is the perfect place to stay during your next city break to Paris.

#2 Musée d’Orsay

The Musée d’Orsay is one of Paris’s most popular attractions. Besides its art exhibitions, the former train station has now become an Instagram hotspot. The large clock on the first floor is particularly popular. On the first Sunday of each month, many museums in Paris offer free entry.This includes the Musée d’Orsay.

#3 Shakespeare and Company

Possibly the most famous bookshop in the world, ‘Shakespeare and Company’ near Notre-Dame cathedral. It has been attracting more than just literature fans to its cosy rooms for years. You can’t take photos in the shop itself, but there’s nothing stopping you in front of it or in its café.

#4 Louvre

Marvelling at the Louvre museum from the outside is an absolute must for your visit to Paris. The glass pyramid looks particularly interesting from underneath the arcades.

The long-standing department store chain Galeries Lafayette isn’t just ideal for big shopping sprees. The large hall, its neo-byzantine dome and the magnificent galleries are rightfully one of the most photographed locations in Paris.
