10x photo spots in Paris, for your perfect photo in Paris

Actually every street corner in Paris makes a nice background for a photo. Almost every arrondissement has its own beautiful streets, beautiful houses and a spectacular sight.

The most beautiful photo spots in Paris

But there are a few photo spots in Paris that, in our opinion, really stand out. In this blog we share 10 of the most beautiful photo spots in Paris with you, which form the perfect foreground or background for your perfect photo in Paris.

The Louvre, the photo spot in Paris that you should not miss

The Louvre is one of the most famous museums in the world and is one of the main attractions of Paris. Moreover, it is home to the Mona Lisa (the famous painting which is a bit disappointing in reality). The glass pyramid in the center of the square, surrounded by the Louvre museum, is a particularly popular photo location in Paris. And you shouldn't miss this photo spot. Because of the many walls around the Louvre pyramids, this is also a photo spot where you can have your picture taken quite easily without large hordes of tourists.


Adress: Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris, France


Port Debilly, the Eiffel Tower from the water

Port Debilly is a mooring spot on the Seine, opposite the Eiffel Tower, making it one of the best photo spots in Paris. Besides the fact that the boats that are moored here are definitely worth seeing, it is especially the view of the Eiffel Tower that is great from Port Debilly. The Seine and the houseboats provide the perfect foreground for your photo with Paris' main hotspot, the Eiffel Tower in the background. This photo spot in Paris is therefore definitely a tip for a nice picture with the Eiffel Tower.

La Maison Rose, a pink photo spot in Montmartre, Paris

La Maison Rose is one of the loveliest houses in Paris and is located in one of the prettiest areas of Paris, Montmartre. La Maison Rose houses a restaurant. In the summer there are also all kinds of cozy tables outside, which may give La Maison Rose an even nicer look.

La Maison Rose is a popular photo spot. Every year thousands, perhaps millions of people cross this crossing in Paris for a photo with La Maison Rose. Downside, it can be crowded and a photo without other people could be tricky. Getting up early may be the best solution for the perfect picture at this photo spot in Paris.

Adress: 2 Rue de l'Abreuvoir, 75018 Paris, France


Arc de Triomphe, a dangerous photo spot in Paris

The Arc de Triomphe is of course also one of the icons of Paris. A city trip to Paris is therefore not complete without taking a look at this iconic building. But the best photo spot with this Arc Triomphe is a bit dangerous. It is best to have your picture taken with the Arc Triomphe when you are on the Champs-Élysées. The best photo spot is in the middle of this famous street in Paris. But if you stand on the escalators on the Champs-Élysées or on the curbs, you're a little safer, and you still have a very nice photo spot in Paris with the Arc de Triomphe in the background.


Adress: Pl. Charles de Gaulle, 75008 Paris, France

Notre Dame, for the most beautiful photo spot with this lady in Paris you should not stand right in front of it

Notre Dame is another important icon of Paris. Unfortunately, due to the fire a few years ago, it is not possible to visit it at the moment and the outside is also fenced off. The result is that you have to look a little more creatively for a beautiful photo spot with this Notre Dame.

In our opinion, this photo spot is on the other side of the Seine. Across the Seine you will find the famous Bouquinistes of Paris, the stalls with prints, vintage magazines etc.

From these Bouquinistes you have a great view of Notre Dame and that is why we think this is one of the best photo spots in Paris for a photo with Notre Dame.

Adress: 6 Parvis Notre-Dame - Pl. Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris, France

Pont de Bir Hakeim, below the Paris metro with a view of the Eiffel Tower

Pont de Bir Hakeim is a bridge over the Seine, built between 1903 and 1905. On the bridge is a steel construction with the track for the Paris metro on top. Actually there are two nice photo spots on Pont de Bir Hakeim in Paris. The steel construction in itself is a nice spot for a photo. But what this Pont de Bir Hakeim in Paris also has, is a great view of the Eiffel Tower. In the middle of the bridge you will find a viewpoint where you can take the perfect photo with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

Adress: Pont de Bir-Hakeim, 75015 Paris, France

Opera Garnier, for a majestic photo in Paris

Opera Garnier is the opera house in Paris. Opera Garnier is actually a small palace. The golden, lavish decorations combined with the velvety red fabrics make it the perfect backdrop for your most royal photo in Paris. The more detailed decorations are stunningly beautiful and guarantee a beautiful picture. Opera Garnier is the most royal photo spot in Paris on our list of most instagrammable photo spots in Paris.


Trocadero, most famous photo spot in Paris for a picture with the Eiffel Tower

Trocadero is perhaps the most famous photo spot in Paris for taking a photo with the Eiffel Tower, and therefore perhaps one of the busiest photo spots in Paris. Our advice is to go here as early as possible in the morning for your photo on the steps of Trocadero with the Eiffel Tower in the background.

Although it is perhaps one of the most famous photo spots in Paris with the Eiffel Tower, we believe that there are nicer places to take a photo with the Eiffel Tower.

Square Louise-Michel, in the merry-go-round with the Sacre Coeur of Paris in the background

Square Louise-Michel is a well-known square in Montmartre at the foot of the Sacre Coeur. This square is the perfect photo spot for a photo with the Sacre Coeur. As far as we're concerned, you take the most beautiful photo on this photo spot next to or in the famous merry-go-round that is located on Square Louise-Michel. This merry-go-round is one of the most famous merry-go-rounds in Paris, mainly because this merry-go-round provides the perfect foreground for a photo with the Sacre Coeur.

Adress: Pl. Saint-Pierre, 75018 Paris, France

Galeries Lafayette, a surprising inside

Galeries Lafayette is a department store chain in France with more than 60 chains in France. And you don't exactly have to visit Galeries Lafayette, because it is such a beautiful building from the outside, although the shop windows are always very nice. Especially during the Christmas season, these shop windows are an attraction in Paris.

The photo spot in Galeries Lafayette is on the inside. The real attraction is the Dome of this beautiful department store. This stained glass dome in the most beautiful colors forms the perfect background for a photo and that is why it belongs on our list of the most beautiful photo spots in Paris. There is even a special bridge made, to take a picture.

Adres: 40 Bd Haussmann, 75009 Paris, Frankrijk
