From Paris with love
INSTA STAR SAPPHIROULA_ SHOWS US AROUND ONE OF EUROPE’S MOST PHOTOGENIC CITIES – PARIS
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.
