Ritz Paris


Insider Tip

In the early 20th century, the hotel’s afternoon tea was a gathering place for women of the highest rank when for the first time, they were allowed to be seen unescorted in public. They would gather at the Ritz gardens to exchange news and ideas while enjoying tea and meringue on fine china. Today, afternoon tea is an honored ritual at the hotel and a favourite meeting place for locals.
