The city that inspired the vision behind Corso Atlanta continues to inspire members of the Galerie Living team. Creative Specialist, Lilli Perno, recently ventured into Paris with a group of friends and discovered the distinguishable je ne sais quoi, which draws in millions of visitors. Her adventures began in the City of Lights and continued into Versaille. Each and every exploration was truly one of a kind.
The smells of sweet treats and savory foods enveloped the streets of Paris. Countless Corner Cafés offered delicious pastries from local patisseries and bold coffee that awakened the soul. Sprinkles throughout the city, each café conveniently offers the perfect place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sounds of the city.
Arc de Triomphe
Kicking off the Parisian adventures, Lilli and her friends roamed the city for over 10 miles and ended up at the Arc de Triomphe. At the center of Place Charles de Gaulle, the monument is the star of the intersection. To get a full view of this masterpiece, guests had to walk through an underground tunnel that led to the Parisian Jewel. Sculpted artwork lined the walls and brought awe to everybody who witnessed it.
Evening views included the effervescent illumination of the Eiffel Tower guiding Lilli and her friends to the monument. The lighting of the Eiffel Tower is a must-see, Lilli and her friends made it just in time to see the tower sparkle. The 1,063-foot landmark is incredibly striking in-person.
Château de Versailles
The Palace of Versailles is preserved in its radiant historical beauty. The detail discovered in the architecture transcends visitors into the decadent era. Originally built in the 17th century during the reign of Kind Louis XIV, the palace has over 700 rooms and covers 2,300 acres. Gold accents glitter throughout the building’s entirety making it truly grand. Among the elaborate structures, guests make their way to the magnifique gardens.
