Journalist Aurelia d’Andrea’s infatuation with Paris began in high school French class, but it was in 2004—during a year-long adventure in the City of Light fueled by a steady diet of baguettes and Bordeaux—that she realized she was in love. Five years later, she packed up her San Francisco apartment and schlepped her husband, her dog, and seven bicycles back to the French capital. Today, bread, wine, and urban exploration still dominate her daily to-do list.

Besides being a source of non-stop creative inspiration, the city is a feast for the senses—and that’s what keeps this expat’s passion for Paris alive. After years of dedicated research, she can now share where to go for the best views of the city, which Louvre entrance has the shortest line, and which boulangerie bakes the best pain au chocolat.
