We stopped for a coffee break and had some delicious desserts (Maison Angelina). Very delicate and tasty, as is the price but it is worth it. Swift service and very good service. Didn't have to queue very long. In summary: really enjoyed!

Tucked away in the massive Louvre is a small, lovely tearoom catered by the famous Angelina Café. Angelina’s noted Mont Blanc pastry was tempting, but a refreshingly cold iced chocolate drink hit the spot, decadently topped with fresh whipped cream. A very pleasant break from...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
