Ask Parisians what is best about their city, and they will say it’s the light: that soft, suffused radiance that flatters a woman’s face, as it does the flowers and façades of the city’s spectacular streets. Paris is elegant—as majestic as its onetime Sun King and as chic as its haute couture walkways. The city may be full of landmarks, but what is most charmingly Parisian is the life seen at street level: the passers-by, the architectural details, the beckoning windows of its bakeries and boutiques. Reintroduce yourself to the City of Light by strolling through the 17th-century Luxembourg Gardens on the Left Bank, down rue Bonaparte, then left along the Boulevard Saint-Germain-des-Prés, rich in history, and the streets that branch off it, leading to the light-filled spaces of the vast yet gracious Esplanade des Invalides and the Art Nouveau cherubs and winged horses of the Pont Alexandre III that spans the Seine.
