If one of our readers is only in Paris for 24 hours what one thing would you recommend they do? Go on a 2 or 3-hour city tour with Paris City Vision in order to get a good idea of Paris, and then have lunch in a mythical place such as La Coupole. You could then discover an area according to your mood. Montmartre for lovers and the Quartier Latin for those who love a livelier Paris. Then in the evening enjoy dinner and a show at the Lido. For our readers who are looking for a traditional Parisian bistro serving authentic French fare, where would you book them a table? Without hesitation I would recommend Auberge Bressane. Their sweet and sour soufflés and their famous chicken with morels cooked with wine and cream are delicious. It’s not always easy for our readers to find somewhere fun to head to at 2am, where would you recommend they party till dawn? Le Magnifique bar is open until 5am and offers a perfect mix of a bar and a club. As the fashion capital, which areas do you think showcase the best fashions? The Golden Triangle area and Rue Saint-Honoré. For a couple in love where would you recommend they go for a romantic dinner? In the garden of the Closerie des Lilas. What have you recently discovered in Paris that you would advise guests to see? The Molitor Hotel where you can enjoy lunch or brunch around the legendary pools. Paris is well-known for its magnificent monuments, from where would you suggest our readers get the best view of the city? If you have the chance to go to Montmartre I suggest going to the corner of rue du Calvaire and Place du Calvaire from where, by day or by night, under a sunny sky or a cloudy one, the city always looks beautiful.
