Perfect trip to Paris for the uninitiated

France’s City of Light has stolen visitors’ hearts for centuries; prepare to be bowled over by some of the world’s finest bistros, grandest gardens and most exquisite architecture.

Food & drink

LADURÉE 1

One of the oldest patisseries in Paris, Ladurée has been around since 1862 and was the original creator of the lighter-than-air macaron (macaroon). Its tearoom is a top spot to indulge on the Champs-Élysées. Alternatively, pick up some pastries to go – from croissants to those trademark macarons, it’s all quite heavenly (laduree.com; 75 Av des Champs-Élysées; pastries from £2.10).

LE MIROIR 2

It would be criminal to come to Paris and not spend time in pretty Montmartre, the hilly, bohemian area once notorious for its red light district, which fed the Moulin Rouge. It can be touristy, so it’s a welcome surprise to find Le Miroir – a modern bistro smack in the middle of it all. It serves delightful pâtés and rillettes, and other well-prepared French staples (restaurantmiroir.com; 94 Rue des Martyrs; menus from £17).
