It's finally here. Day 3 of your epic journey through Paris. And we finally have you exploring the most visited museum in the world, The Louvre.

But before you dive into art history, let's sit down for breakfast at Comptoir Poilâne. If you didn't know the name before, well you definitely will know it after! Post breakfast, take your instagram shot at Le Bon Marché, the first ever modern department store (and don't forget to head next door to La Grande Épicerie, my absolute favorite!).

Whether or not you left with a slightly lighter wallet, walking through Jardin du Luxembourg will put a smile on anyone's face, especially since lunch at La Jacobine is following. Any guesses as to what comes after lunch? Yep. Dessert. And none other than the famous Laudrée.

After enjoying a few of these scrumptious treats, it's time to tackle the Louvre. Of course, if you are a museum buff, you may want to dedicate more than an afternoon here, but if you are like us, and a couple hours is your limit, this is your day. If you are craving another museum visit, we've squeezed in Musée d'Orsay as well.

Now it's time to get back outside and see the 'most famous opera house,' in the world (while singing 'The Phantom of the Opera' in it's entirety (or is that just me?). You've spent a few euros on tickets today so how about something for free? The view at Galleries Lafayette will not disappoint, even on a grey Parisian day.

It's finally time to wrap everything up (in a perfect Parisian bow) in The City of Lights with an evening in Montmartre. A sweet treat from Pain Pain and a sunset on the steps of Sacre-Coeur will do the trick. Indulge in a little happy hour action at our favorite neighborhood bar, Un Zèbre, before dinner at our favorite neighborhood restaurant, La Mascotte. And finally, for the last time during our 3 days together, let's have one last toast at Lulu White. Here's to good health and better wine. À Bientôt mes amis. Bisous.

Yay! It’s Macaron Time!
