THINGS TO DO IN PARIS – [OCTOBER 2016]

What is there to see and do in Paris this October 2016|? If you’re new in town we’ve rounded up a massive list for you pick choose and refuse. October weather is normally jacket wearing time still, but we do manage to get some warm days so you can still wander around with ease (umbrella in tote). If you’re an expat living here you’re probably as excited as we are for the regular activities back this year like Nuit Blanche, Pitchfork Festival, Paris Fashion Week (with Tranoi), Salon du Chocolat, and Halloween. 

 

One additional thing we’ve decided to share with you this week is a list of NEW places to discover this month. Because we’re always on the look out for that new chic restaurant or hip coffee shop right?!
