One of the most instagramed places in Paris, located up on the Montmartre. La Maison Rose translates literally to The Pink House.

If you have seen Emily In Paris you will recognize this street as it is known to be the prettiest street in Paris. Capture some elegant pink photos in front of the building. 

Yet, this cafe is not just cute and pink. It is full of history. Serving coffee since the late 1800s, in the early 1900s, a woman called Laure Germaine and her husband Ramon Richot took ownership of the cafe. 

The owners happened to be good friends with several artists, two of them you know pretty well: Picasso and Casagemas.

Unfortunately,  Casagemas became very obsessed with Germaine, he wanted to marry her.. She refused all his advances and he ended up killing himself publicly in front of her.

Picasso wasn’t here to talk his friend out of it and felt guilty for the rest of his life. But kept returning to La Maison to visit Germaine, and they remained friends until he died.

This tragic event inspired Picasso to paint his painting of 1901,  “The Death of Casagemas” which is supposed to celebrate his friend’s life.

10. Avenue De Camoens

Avenue de Camoens is a serene street, offering romantic views of the Eiffel Tower surrounded by stunning French architecture.

Another fabulous spot to capture your Eiffel Tower photos. Sit on the wall and capture some cute candid pics. 

This residential area is home to an iconic balcony view that overlooks the eiffel tower. Make sure to look out for the fountain at the bottom of the street!

The short street turns into a stairwell that goes down a steep hill. If you’re searching for  Parisian beauty, then bring a picnic lunch and lounge with a view.

You’re going to have to stand on the railing, but it’s definitely worth it
