Jo Wilfried Tsonga Tour Guide, Explore Paris with the Frenchman
An exclusive Interview
A day in Paris would be spent …
For sure riding the Bateaux Mouches or the other riverboats that travel along the Seine River. As most of the monuments are along the water’s edge, you get to see many of them. The trip takes about two hours and is best to do right before sunset.
Before that you have a choice of museums, either The Louvre or Orsay depending on what you are after.
And one other thing you should also not miss is to eat a chocolate macaroon from Ladurée, either on rue Royale or on the Champs Elysees.Address: Louvre Museum, 75 001 Paris, France Phone: +33 1 40 20 50 50
I like a small sushi place called Minori not too far from City Hall. Great food. Probably for me the best sushi in Paris.Address: 14 Rue Cloche Percé, 75 004 Paris Phone: +33 1 44 78 07 68
Favorite Tourist Stop
Place des Vosges, a square close to Bastille or the Sacre Coeur area.
Too many to list but Galeries Lafayette [a large department store] is usually a good start.Address: 40, Boulevard Haussmann, 75 009 Paris
