Oh, beautiful Paris...

It's not a new notion, Paris is beautiful, romantic, and has a wonderful touch of old-world that I don't think is going away soon (which is for the best)! Recently my friend got me a great gift - "Taschen's Paris ~ Hotels, Restaurants & Shops," and what I love about it is the inside look it gives you to beautiful Paris. I think you'll agree.

Above - Sofitel Trocadero Dokhan's,

The bar and patio in the Hotel Duc de Saint-Simon,

A courtyard from the Hotel Bel-Ami,

The above two images are from Hotel Saint Merry, ( It is right next to the church of Saint-Merry, from which it borrows it's architecture and styling.

Beautifully French, a staircase in the Hotel Verneuil, ( and a sweet bedroom above.

Got a sweet tooth? Honeys and jams abound at Les Ruchers du Roy.

More than 900 herbs are available at Grande Herboristerie Parisienne de la Place Clichy.

The charming facade of Mamie Gateaux.

The finest tea shop in Paris - Mariage Freres,
