My daughter and I will be staying in Paris for 5 or 6 nights in late May. Neither of us have been. I would love advice on where to stay. I'd like to primarily travel by foot. It's been recommended to stay near the Seine as it's close to so many places. I've spent some time today looking for places on Airbnb and I see that we still have some good options. I just can't seem to make a decision on what neighborhood would be best. As well, I am not tied to Airbnb.
I would love to be in a place where food is plentiful, buildings are beautiful, a grocer is near, things are worn with age and history. We don't need trendy, new or busy. I know we can find that as desired. If you can suggest a neighborhood for us that we will feel safe, is walkable and accessible, I'd really appreciate it. Our plan is to spend time together after her first year away at college, eat well, drink some red wine and wander the streets of Paris together.
Many thanks in advance.
