From Paris with love

Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Contents -

We’ve all heard peo­ple say Paris is one of the most ro­man­tic ci­ties in the world. And af­ter vis­it­ing, I was blown away by the beauty of Paris. It’s a fairy­tale city, lit­er­ally out of a Dis­ney movie. As soon as I ar­rived, it even started to snow – a truly mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence! There’s so much his­tory and cul­ture to soak up on ev­ery street cor­ner, along with ex­quis­ite cui­sine, moor­ish desserts and chic bou­tiques.

Morn­ings in the city are my favourite time of the day. I love to get up while ev­ery­one is sleep­ing and take in the scent of freshly baked crois­sants and pas­tries – truly a dessert lovers’ par­adise. The ar­chi­tec­ture is breath­tak­ing.

My favourite area in Paris is the 1st ar­rondisse­ment. It’s one of the old­est dis­tricts in Paris, home to im­pos­ing royal palaces, beau­ti­fully man­i­cured gar­dens and some of the best shop­ping in Paris. My favourite part was Place Vendôme, a square lo­cated to the north of the Tui­leries Gar­dens lead­ing to the fa­mous Lou­vre Mu­seum. I loved Place Vendôme be­cause it made me feel like I was in a me­dieval town. Oh, and it’s per­fect for those In­sta­gram shots too!

If you want to see how the other half live, and feel like Blair Wal­dorf from Gos­sip Girl for the day, I highly rec­om­mend pay­ing a visit to the five­star Hô­tel Plaza Athénée. (Dorch­ester­col­lec­tion. com/en/paris/ho­tel­plazaa­the­nee). You don’t have to be a guest to have af­ter­noon tea down­stairs at La Ga­lerie. This chic restau­rant at­tracts a fash­ion­able crowd, and is known for their de­li­cious, freshly brewed teas.

Sap­phi­roula Pele­cas, aka @sapphiroula_ brings her 185k fol­low­ers along for the ride.
