One Day in Paris

France, Paris Guide (B): One Day in Paris

The only sad thing about this idea is that you only have 24 hours in Paris. After 5 years of visiting and living in this city, I can tell you that it still isn’t enough time to completely delve into this incredible place. But you only have one day for now, and we’re going to assume two important factors: 1) you have an insane amount of energy to stay out all day long, and 2) you’re ready to splurge a little bit because, after all, you’re only in Paris for this one day! 

The most scrumptious way to start a Parisian day is at Angelina’s on Rue de Rivoli. This 19th century tea room boasts a pricey and extensive brunch, but is also home to wonderful pastries and the world’s best hot chocolate. Enjoy the bustling waiters, soft watercolor walls, and mix of locals and tourists alike.

You’re right in the heart of French history with the Place de la Concorde to your right (where the Revolution and the Reign of Terror guillotined over 2,500 people) and the home to one of the best art collections in the world in the Louvre to your left (originally built in the 12th century as a castle fortress). You don’t have time to go into the Louvre today, but the courtyard with the pyramid provides plenty of photo opportunities.  ......
