the art of


  • Macarons
    • Ladurée – my personal favorite ride along the Avenue des ChampsÉlysées
    • Pierre Herme – a worthy competitor with multiple locations around the city
  • Berthillon – ice-cream for those sweltering summer days
  • Montmarte neighborhood – perfect for a sunny weekend. Many narrow streets and can be easy to get lost, which might be just what you need
  • Le Consulat – for an afternoon pick-me-up coffee
  • Sacre Coeur – wonderful church at the top of the hill overlooking all of Paris
  • Cafe de Flore – famous cafe in St. Germain for its facade
  • Arc de Triomphe – the best option is to climb at sunset for killer views
  • Notre Dame – climbing this church takes planning, you have to get there early depending on what time they open to get a spot that day
  • Musée d’Orsay – fantastic museum on the river with a multitude of artistic works in all forms
  • Musée de l’Orangerie – the home of Monet’s lilies in the Jardin de Tuileries
  • Les Catacombes – an underground tour that is as creepy as it is fun
  • La Belle Hortense – a place where a person can read a book and enjoy a cocktail
  • Printemps rooftop – my favorite destination in Paris. Head to the roof and get yourself a mini bottle of rose and you have found the spot you will sit and watch an afternoon in Paris go by
  • Galeries Lafayette – the second best rooftop in Paris right behind the Palais Garnier, this has a glass barricade so in your photos it will look like nothing stands between you and the city skyline.
  • Shakespeare and Co. – fantastic old bookstore found by an Englishman across the river from Notre Dame
  • The Louvre  – want to master visiting French museums? Check out How To Museum Hop in Paris
  • Eiffel Tower – I would suggest going in both the day and the night. At night it sparkles every hour on the hour. Find a comfy spot in the grass and bring some macarons and watch it shine!
  • Sainte-Chapelle – the most beautiful cathedral I’ve ever seen, made of stained glass windows
  • Palais de Chaillot – the best view of the Eiffel Tower, get off at the Trocadero metro stop
  • St. Germain neighborhood – a historic neighborhood where many writers lived in the early 20th century
  • Les Deux Magots – a historical cafe that Hemingway and others frequented. You never know who you might meet here!
  • Pink Mamma – maybe the best restaurant in Paris for millennials and Gen Z. Make a reservation and ask for the rooftop, you won’t be disappointed.
  • Place du Tertre – the square where all the Montmartre artists sell their pieces, it is a cultural experience not to be missed.
