Just call us “your friend in Paris”.

A while back, our founder Jessica Dante noticed that her travels were always SO much better when she had a local friend taking her to the best new restaurants, to the bars that only locals knew about, and tell her what to definitely avoid so she didn’t fall into the typical tourist trap. That deep local knowledge always felt so enriching to her time exploring that place, but she knew that most people travel to places where they don’t have any friends they can rely on.

So she decided to build something that felt like they did.

At Love and Paris, we’re a team of Paris experts, but more importantly, energetic locals who are here to help you have your BEST visit ever, giving you the info you need as if we’ve all been friends for years.

We know you want to do the major sights you’ve seen in the films and learned about in school, and we can guide you for that stuff. But what we really LOVE to do is help you experience the city like you live in it. From sending you to sexy wine bar where you’ll learn about French wine from a sommelier that lives just around the corner, to telling you about the hidden museum that even locals pass by without noticing, to showing you a quaint boutique hotel you’ll love in an area that wasn’t on your radar, but should be. THAT’S what gets us fired up.

And as much as we tell you what to do, we also tell you what NOT to do, as that’s even more important. We’re here to help you save time, money and disappointment. There’s no room for that during your limited time in this amazing city.
