Our Paris tips
Spring made its huge comeback. Parisians stretch their legs, the dandies dust off their Ray Bans, and this entire beautiful small world meets in the terrace of a trendy place to enjoy the very welcomed sunrays and the nice temperatures. Between shopping sprees, we meet out girlfriends in Ladurée, Angelina or in Toraya, three of the best gourmand addresses of the capital. You don’t know them yet? Discover them thanks to the Élysées Mermoz Hotel!
The best macarons
Created in 1862, the tearoom Ladurée Royale is without a doubt one of the most beautiful in Paris. With its woodworks and antique myriad of angels frescos, this chic décor it’s a true symbol of the french lifestyle. Here we can taste drinks and other pastries, but particularly the famous macaroons that come in a variety of flavors, being the rose or the orange blossom macaroons the perfect examples.
