Ah, Paris. It’s hard not to sigh when you utter the name of the French capital. Unequivocally, it’s one of the world’s most breathtaking cities. From museums bursting with masterpieces to public gardens laden with bright blooms, Paris is equally alluring both indoors and out. Add in picturesque cobbled neighborhoods, grand Haussmannian boulevards, and the Seine River snaking through it all, and you’ve got a real stunner on your hands.
Though I’ve only visited Paris in the summer, I have to say that it’s a pretty amazing time to be there. Sidewalk cafes come to life with alfresco diners, sunbathers loll on the Paris Plage, picknickers flock to the Jardin des Tuileries (one of my absolute favorite spots!), and oh those summer nights in the City of Light! Even if the city gets showered in a summer storm, that’s simply a handy excuse to spend the day lost amongst the Old Masters at the Musée du Louvre or the Impressionists at the Musée d’Orsay.
Just in time for the season, The Purple Passport has launched its Paris Guide! It’s the perfect way to plan a trip to the “Metropolis Magnifique.”
