Whether for an appearance or simply to explore the City of Love, celebrities enjoy Paris as much as the rest of us. It’s one of the grandest cities in the world from its designer shopping, unrivaled fashion week, five-star hotels and local coffee shops on the corner of a cobblestone street that look straight out of a movie.
