  1. You’re so right – everyone thinks of Paris as a couple’s destination but it looks the perfect place to travel on your own too. It’s one of those cities you can just get lost in, and there’s plenty to keep you entertained too. The French cooking class is a great idea!

    1. Absolutely! There’s so much to do in Paris. After 4 visits in the last 2 years, I still haven’t even scratched the surface!

  2. I have to admit, one of the reasons I have avoided going to Paris so far, was that I didn´t want to do it by myself. It always seemed like such a romantic destination that I was waiting for someone special to go there with. Now I read this, I am thinking I will go on my own. And I´ll go on a walking tour and meet somebody to go to the ballet with! 🙂

    1. Oooh the walking tour and ballet idea is stellar! Honestly, I love being in Paris alone. It just feels so right! I’ve never felt out of place on my own there, it just works for me!

  3. Went to Paris with a friend, but had almost a day alone after she left. I found it very nice just to wander around on my own, and spent hours sitting in a park just watching people walk by.

  4. Heck yah! I love traveling solo, it leaves you so much more freedom. I’ve only been to Paris with my family years ago, but it’s time to go back and explore. I love taking cooking classes and reading books, and honestly love eating alone because it lets you do some excellent people watching 🙂 thanks for sharing!

    1. Ha yes! It’s great isn’t it? Hope you get to go it alone sometime soon, it’s such a beautiful place to enjoy by yourself.

  5. Quite frankly, you had me at Shakespeare. I would have NEVER thought of Paris this way.. I feel like I fell right into that misconception of thinking Paris needs to be saved for non-solo travel. And now, I might just do it. Thanks so much

    1. You totally should. It’s one of my favourite places to travel alone. I always feel so safe there. Hope you get to experience it by yourself, let me know how you get on!

    1. Ahh, there really is so much to do in Paris, you’ll never do it all in one trip! The first time I went I only spent 4 days there, but any time from 4 days to a week would be a great amount of time to see the main sites and really get a feel for it!

  6. There are so many things to do in Paris, that I can’t imagine you could ever run out of things to do! I went with my husband, but it would be a good city to visit solo, especially for relaxing in the cafes and spending some time people watching in Champ de Mars!

    1. Absolutely. I think I’ll keep going until I’m old and grey and still have parts of Paris I haven’t seen!
