I wanted to share with you all some of the Instagram accounts I follow that have amazing pictures of Paris. This post focuses more on bloggers and professional accounts. (I was inspired by this post on Chocolate & Zucchini.) More posts on this topic to come because there are so many awesome accounts to follow and they don’t all fit into one post.
The Instagram account for the Paris tourist office. Features all kinds of great photos of Paris from various photographers. You can see photos of monuments (of course) and the streets of Paris, but also of events and places you might not know.
Parisian buildings come in slices 🍰 This one is located next to one of the sections of the Petite Ceinture in the 15th arrondissement which is opened to the public, between the Place Balard and the Rue Olivier de Serres. What an original picture dear @mary_quincy! #parisjetaime #paris #explore #travel
#UndiscoveredParis Former hospital Saint-Vincent-de-Paul was turned into an atypical neighbourhood where associations, startups and inhabitants live together. For a friendly afternoon or a cool night out, one of the building even houses a bar/restaurant/concert hall. Very cool place @chatoun35! #Paris #Parisjetaime #DiscoverAnotherParis #coolplaces #lalingerie #lesgrandsvoisins
" Chuuutt " is one of the most famous street art work in Paris, created by Jef Aérosol. It is located next to the Pompidou Centre, facing the Igor Stravinsky fountain : take the opportunity to discover its 16 colourful sculptures by Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle 👌✨💛 Cool pic dear @marikamarangella! #parisjetaime #paris #visitparis #parislovesstreetart #streetart
Le Centre des monuments nationaux (CMN) aka the Center for National Monuments has an Instagram account, and it’s filled with pictures of the national monuments of France. My one gripe is that I wish the photos were higher quality.
The city of Paris has an Instagram account, and it mostly consists of daily life in Paris and events that are happening around the city. They also throw in some historical photos every now and then.
A really excellent blogger who posts interesting stuff about Paris. She posts pictures on Instagram about her life, and places she recommends, along with interesting (usually retro) stuff she finds along the way. She has a distinct sensibility which she sometimes describes as being a bit like the Wes Anderson aesthetic.
Buried under a bridge in Paris, the Misfit Mausoleums of Montmartre. 💀🌉 The cemetery was here first, dating all the way back to the French revolution when it was first used as a makeshift mass grave. The 19th century Parisian elite paid top dollar for prime plots near the entrance of the cemetery where the sun would always shine on the graves of their ancestors and honour their family legacies for centuries to come. Or so they thought…🌘 Find more photos on this story in my blog, type "Montmartre cemetery") 👆#Paris #cemetery #explore #montmartre #offbeat #history #urban #architecture #dbtparis
Borderline braggy? 🍴💅 While one would think this restaurant has sold its very soul to the giant Michelin Man thing himself that I always get confused with the Ghostbusters' Marshmellow Man– they actually make the meanest Beouf Bourguignon. Frog Legs should also be ordered here while appreciating the nostalgicky dining room that's been owned by the same time travelling family for decades. That's all for today, bye. #Paris #French #Bistrot #dbtparis

Desserts! Patisseries and nice shoes. This guy tries all kinds of desserts around Paris and takes photos of himself holding them in a way that we can also see his (great and often matching) shoes. He also features cities that he visits. Indulge your sweet tooth from afar.
Get ready for a red spring in Paris, like this raspberry tart by @dimancheaparis @nicolas_bacheyre with crunchy hazelnut gluten free tart base, almond and elder flower cream, vanilla cream and fresh raspberries and all of them accompanied with my @omrashoes red ones and @happysocksofficial green explosion
