Ah, the weekend at last! We invite you to discover the 17th arrondissement and its different neighborhoods, sometimes bobo, sometimes chic …
10 a.m. – Yes, the perfect Saturday starts at 10 a.m., because it’s the weekend, and we looove sleeping in. We recommend you dress comfortably and head, straight away, to Place de Clichy, to discover a cosmopolitan, lively spot. Here, you can have a 100% Parisian breakfast , comfortably installed on the terrace of the brasserie “Le Petit Poucet,” which overlooks the famous square.
11 a.m. – After you’ve had your breakfast and washed it down with coffee, leave the Place de Clichy and head off into the trendy Les Batignolles district, which is full of shops, restaurants, and bars. Let’s go shopping because yes, a Saturday in Paris without shopping is not really a Saturday.
12:30 p.m. – A stroll in the outdoors is required after lightening your wallet! While in Paris, it’s difficult to find nature, but the Square des Batignolles, with its little water features and beautiful greenery, can provide you with a moment of serenity.
1:30 p.m. – In the neighborhood, you’ll probably find a terrace for lunch, there’s one on every corner!
3:00 p.m. – Head to the Ternes neighborhood, the chic part of the 17th arrondissement. We offer you a bit of culture, by visiting the splendid Church of St. Ferdinand des Ternes, dating from the nineteenth century.
4:00 p.m. – If you’ve still not had enough of shopping, you’ll find it on the Avenue des Ternes, where there are plenty of shops!
5:00 p.m. – To finish the afternoon in style, buy yourself a waffle for a snack and head straight for the Parc Monceau, to enjoy it at your leisure.
