Paris

I have been to Paris six times, each so different and special in their own way.
The city of my heart.
If I need to breathe again, I buy a flight to the French capital.
And below I leave you my guide with some indications on how I would structure the Parisian escape.

DAY 1

BREAKFAST: Carette sede Trocadéro | Café du Trocadéro

comfortable shoes and let’s fill our eyes with wonder…
– Trocadéro
– Eiffel Tower
– Champ De Mars
– Pont d’Iéna
(to do: boat trip on the Seine with embarkation and disembarkation in the same point, usually near the Eiffel Tower)

– Place de la Concorde
– Jardin des Tuileries
– Place Vendôme

SNACK: unmissable stop at Cédric Grolet Le Meurice (6 Rue de Castiglione, 75001 Paris)
*on the online shop you will find the ‘Click & Collect‘ section, which in my opinion is the skip-the-line solution; buy a sweet and choose the day with a time slot. You will then have your reservation for collection, and at that moment you will be able to purchase anything else. This also applies to the Opéra location.

Afternoon at the museum, I leave you my favourites
*with a reservation you are facilitated

– Museo de l’Orangerie
Claude Monet’s Water Lilies
– Museum D’Orsay
Dante and Virgil
Breakfast on the grass
Olympia
Dance at the Moulin de la Galette
Self-portrait
The church of Auvers-Sur-Oise
Still life with apples and oranges
The dance class
Two Tahitian women
The poppies
Starry Night
The dance school
Vincent Van Gogh’s room

DINNER: Relais de venise-son entrecôte
Remember that we are in Paris, you have to try the entrecôte!
This little place that I recommend is a restaurant chain with multiple locations in Paris; the formula consists of a house salad as an entrée, and a kind of meat cut topped with their special sauce and chips, the plate is refilled twice. Low prices, worth trying!

AFTER DINNER: Obviously speakeasy! I leave you the cutest ones:
L’épicier (the bar hidden in the back of a grocery store. Once you enter the small supermarket, look around and look for the entrance door behind a shelf);
Lavomatic (One of the most original is Lavomatic, the bar hidden above a real laundromat located in the 10th arrondissement, near Place de la République. To enter you have to go through a door disguised as a washing machine and go up the stairs);
No Entry is the secret bar of the Italian restaurant Pink Mamma, entering you pass the pastry shop where I worked.
