Paris, the city of love and the perfect place to take Instagram photos! As the popularity of the social media platform has grown, so has the legion of grammers who jump from one city to the next, armed with tripods, timers and a bulging bag full of coordinated clothing; all geared towards taking the absolutely perfect shot for their Instagram feed.
And there has been no more instagrammed than Paris. Singapore has been knocking at the door but Paris, which has been a photographer’s paradise for decades, retains a special place in the heart of all who long to visit.
So, are you looking to get that perfect Instagram shot? You’ll probably start with the general Instagram Guide, showcasing the iconic spots in the city. For that, head over to our more comprehensive guide.
But, if you’re just looking to replicate some of the shots like this one from inspiring Instagrammer, KatieOne?
Then you need to get up high. Well, essentially, you need to book a night or two at hotels that have an Eiffel Tower view. Ideally with large windows, a balcony and a continental breakfast spread to make any Instagram feed jump with joy.
