Daisy Travels: Paris like a local

Travel is a big part of our inspiration at Daisy, so this summer we’re taking you on an adventure exploring some of our favourite destinations and the women who live there. A few weeks ago we chatted with Lisbon based Débora Rosa; this month we’re with the lovely Anna, aka @paris.with.me, a lifestyle blogger and content creator based in Paris.

Born in Russia, Anna moved to Paris and made it her home and inspiration (and it’s easy to see why).  Find yourself transported to the streets of Paris or sitting having breakfast in your favourite cafe through her lens…you’ll be scrolling for hours. We highly recommend checking out her blog too.

Planning to go to Paris now? Us to! We caught up with Anna to find out how to live like a local and her top tips to stay, eat and drink in the city.

Where to have a breakfast/coffee break: Le Dome, 4 Avenue de Villiers, 75017 Paris/Shakespeare&Company Coffee shop, 37 Rue de la Bûcherie, 75005 Paris

French breakfasts usually consist of coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, croissants, pain au chocolat and/or baguette with butter and jam.

My favourite place is Le Dome in the 17th arrondissement, near Parc Monceau or at Shakespeare & Company Coffee shop (they have many delicious vegan and gluten free options).

Where to have a picnic: Ile St Louis

One of my favourite things to do in Paris in the summer is to have a picnic on the Seine river bank. My location of choice is on Ile St Louis, from the side of Quai St Louis overlooking Notre Dame de Paris. Take a plaid to sit on, a bottle of wine (don’t forget a corkscrew & glasses!), cheese, baguette and some fruit or berries.

Where to have a drink: Rooftops Le Perchoir

Despite many years of its existence, (and many other rooftop bars have opened in the meanwhile) Rooftops Le Perchoir keeps top spot on my personal list. There are three of them: Le Perchoir Marais (overlooking the beautiful building of Hotel de Ville), Le Perchoir in the 11th art (overlooking Parisian rooftops and Montmartre) and Le Perchoir de l’Est (on the rooftop Gare de l’Est train station).
