Over the years I’ve become quite intimate with the back streets, local hang-outs and unexpected corners of the city… the better I get to know Paris, the more I love it. I share my favorite spots with my guests on SOJOURNER TOURS Best Kept Secrets and Off-the-Beaten-Path sojourns… and, I thought it would be fun for some of you to test your knowledge and get to know the city better.
Please post your guesses! I love seeing your ideas.
HINT: This isn’t ice cream… it is gelato and it is packed with intense flavors: nuts, tropical fruits, chocolates, coffee..! And it comes from an French chain started by two Italian friends that you can now find all over Paris (and the world… here is a link to their website so you can find the one closest to you). I go out of my way to make at least one annual trip to the boutique with my boys and we all argue about who loves it the gelato most. The fun thing about the rose petals is that the gelato merchant will let you select an almost infinite number of strongly perfumed flavors to sample. Trust me, if you like icy treats… you have not lived until you’ve had one of these cones!
