Where Paris - - My Paris -

Paris is known around the world as the City of Light. What would you rec­om­mend vis­i­tors do in the evenings to re­ally take in its beauty? Dur­ing this sum­mer pe­riod, I would take a river limou­sine and make a stop at the Square du Vert Galant and have a glass of cham­pagne while watch­ing the sun­set on Paris’s mon­u­ments. As a culi­nary cap­i­tal what are three of your favourite res­tau­rants that you would rec­om­mend our read­ers to try? As I am a food lover, there are so many res­tau­rants in Paris but I would sug­gest an au­then­tic French bistro, Caves Petris­sans on the Right Bank, Garance and David Toutain on the Left Bank, which pro­pose an out­stand­ing cre­ative cui­sine. What are the top three mon­u­ments not to be missed while in Paris? His­tory is in­sep­a­ra­ble from Paris and the Ile de la Cité is the old­est heart of Paris. You can visit the Sainte-Chapelle, the old­est pub­lic clock of Paris on the Palais de la Cité tower, the Ile de la Cité Crypt and cross the Saint-Louis bridge and walk through the Ile Saint-Louis, then cross the Tour­nelle Bridge and see the Sain­teGeneviève Statue. If our read­ers wanted to spend their day shop­ping, would you rec­om­mend they do so on the Right Bank or the Left Bank? Right bank of course. I would rec­om­mend shop­ping at La Suite at the Ga­leries Lafayette, a lovely pri­vate place with a beau­ti­ful ter­race over­look­ing Mont­martre. One of my favourite places in Paris. What would be the most ro­man­tic date in the cap­i­tal of ro­mance? One of the most ro­man­tic places in Paris is the Renoir gar­den at the Mont­martre mu­seum. A beau­ti­ful place tak­ing you back in time. What would you rec­om­mend for fam­i­lies to dis­cover while vis­it­ing the French cap­i­tal? With my chil­dren I would take a Monet paint­ing course in Mont­martre, take part in a scav­enger hunt in the Egyp­tian Lou­vre sec­tion and fin­ish by vis­it­ing the zoo of Vin­cennes. What are you favourite cock­tail bars in the city? For me, you have two bars where you must go to in Paris, the Fo­rum and the Bizazz, our ho­tel bar. They are for me two of the most cre­ative bars in Paris and the place to be. Brunch and high tea are Sun­day favourites, where would you sug­gest to our read­ers to en­joy the best treats? My favourite place is the Sébastien Gau­dard tea sa­lon near the Tui­leries Gar­den. A lovely place where you will dis­cover the most fa­mous French pas­tries.
