A PARISIAN WEEKEND
The city of love? Parisians might disagree but if you’re not falling in love in Paris, it’s hard not to fall in love with one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
The French capital boasts some of the world’s finest museums and monuments; The Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and The Louvre to name a few but there’s always something new to discover. The best way to get around and capture the surroundings is by foot but the city also has a pretty easy to navigate Metro system if you don’t fancy the walk. Failing that just grab a cab, which won’t cost you too much because of how close every iconic site is in Paris.
Spring and early summer are all about the gardens, parks and intimate courtyards. Don’t just grab a quick coffee to go either, whether you’re reading a newspaper, meeting a friend or watching people pass by, take your time at the table and become Parisian for an afternoon.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming post at Café Kitsuné.
Shopping in Paris can get you into a lot of trouble but if you don’t mind a spend then you have plenty of choice. For famous designer names check out Saint-Honoré and Avenue Montaigne, or Place Vendôme for some of the world’s finest jewellery. The historic district of Le Marais, often referred to as ‘Old Paris’, is packed with vintage and designer boutiques that are often open seven days per week which make it a great way to end your weekend.
The best part is that Paris is right at our doorstep and getting there is easy. Flights are regular, and travelling from London is just over two hours by Eurostar…bonus.
