We have the pleasure to introduce you Anastasia's favorite places of Paris, mom to her seven year old daughter Elle. They both live on Cape Cod, Massachusetts: this is where her instagram name @capecodmomma was born.
What do you need to know about her ? Well, Anastasia is a school psychologist, but during their free time, her and her daughter Elle just LOVE broaden their horizons and traveling near and far. Their favorite places in the world are mostly Hawaii and France, and especially the south of France and of course, Paris, the city of love.
Here are her selection of her favorites places in Paris.
The Ferris Wheel
One of her number one "kid friendly activity" in Paris is the Ferris wheel, but mostly in the summer because you can catch a magnificent sunset over the city if you go between the hours of 8-8:30 pm. It's quite beautiful !
Her favorite restaurant is Le Bistro Marbeuf in the 8th arrondissement; a few blocks from the famous Avenue des Champs-Elysees. Its is a true elegant wooden-walled brasserie and has a true Parisian bistro atmosphere with lovely and attentive staff (and the best escargot! ).
The Eiffel Tower by the Port Debilly
Of course the Eiffel Twoer can be obvious to mention or a little bit "clich" but Anastasia is giving you her best spot to see the Eiffel Tow by avoiding the crowds: right down by the Seine at Port Debilly.
It is especially magical when the Iron Lady begins to sparkle on the top of the hour past dusk. That way, you can take you best photo !
Café du Trocadéro
The best spot to have a little café are pretty much all of the restaurants and cafés around the Place du Trocadero, but is she has to chose juste one bustling brewery, she will definitely choose the Café du Trocadero where you can relax while admiring the beautiful view.
Saint Germain des Près
Her favorite arrondissement in Paris would be the 6th, particularly the iconic neighborhood of Saint Germain Des Près: cradle of the Parisians intellectuals and philosophers as Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Boris Vian and many others !
Worth the wait? Laduree on Avenue des Champs-Elysees. Take a gourmet break according to the French "savoir-faire", but go also explore the beautiful interior as well, and the incredible salles de bain upstairs! No really, they are stunning!
Most memorable experience
A great experience that we did previously was a picnic by the Eiffel tower, followed by a tour around Paris in a vintage Citroën, with La Petite Frenchie Paris: an epic french adventure !
And you, what to you want to visit or do the most in Paris ?
