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.

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.
