One of my absolute favorite things about Paris was the doors! In our meanderings, we found doors of every color, every age, every level of detail. You can’t imagine what joy that is for a door lover like me, or what annoyance it is for a door-indifferent companion like my husband (because the door lover stops to admire every single door, every few minutes).
Here are some of my favorite Parisian doors. I’ve tried to list where you might find these, but I suggest you use this post more as inspiration than a guide. The real happiness in finding beautiful doors is stumbling upon them!
My favorite area for doors was definitely the Île Saint-Louis. This small island on the Seine packs in a lot of punch when it comes to doors.
The doorways on the Île de la Cité don’t disappoint either. You can walk over here from the Île Saint-Louis over a lovely little bridge.
Le Marais definitely cannot be left behind when talking of doors.
I especially loved this one with faces carved on to it. I like to think they are of the people that once lived within..
And then there’s the lovely Montmarte! I recommend getting here early in the morning to explore in peace.
Of course, there are beautiful doors all around Paris, including the “doorways” to the Metro stations.
Are you convinced to book a flight to Paris based on just the beautiful doors? More in-depth Parisian guides coming soon to the blog!
