We got tickets to Roland Garros so it was a perfect excuse to go to Paris for the weekend.
We left at 6am on Saturday morning and got the Eurostar to Paris. We dropped our bags at the hotel and went to Holy Belly 19 for breakfast.
As we had all been here more than once, we weren’t too interested in the touristy things, so we just walked around the Le Marais, Latin Quarter and St Germain areas.
For lunch, we went to Chez Jeannette in Saint-Denis where I had the steak frites which were delicious.
For dinner, we went to La Fontaine de Mars which is the cutest French restaurant with red check tables and a typical French vibe. We got a table outside where we could also people watch. We shared the bread with salami (complimentary), snails and I had the duck confit which was delicious. For dessert, we shared the creme brulee.
We then strolled to the Eiffel Tower area which was close by. We enjoyed the views with some sparkling, watched the sun go down and the Eiffel Tower light up.
The next day we caught the metro to Michel-Ange-Auteuil to go to Stade Roland Garros for Roland Garros (the French Open). As always with the tennis, it was a great atmosphere both in the stadiums and outside. We had tickets to the Suzanne Lenglen court and we saw the women’s single Vekic and Konta play then watched the intense game between Wawrinka and Tsitsipas which went for 5 hours and 9 minutes! Afterwards, we saw Nishikori for a bit before heading back around 9pm.
Afterwards, we went to Paris New York for a quick feed before heading to bed as we had an early morning train back to London.
It was a great little weekend getaway, visiting Paris for the 4th time and getting to enjoy the city and the tennis!
