Paris in the snow
We have all heard that April in Paris is romantic. We have the understanding that the French Riviera is smashing in the summer. Well, has anyone ever told you that winter in Paris is beautiful? Years ago, back when I lived in Paris, I recall skies of gray and a lot of rain. It does not typically snow in Paris, but when it does, it is striking. The whole city stops. Literally. This past December, I had the opportunity to spend a few days in snow glistened Paris. It was breathtaking. Also, the chilly weather allows for time spent wandering the city’s gorgeous museums, shops (my favorite is galleries lafayette) and sipping a bowl of hot cocoa at the neighborhood cafe. Winter in Paris sounds pretty romantic to me.
