About the Author

Writer and content creator Donna Wheeler has been a regular visitor to Paris for decades and a part-time resident for the last five years. The city has been her base while she spent over ten years on the road for Lonely Planet in Europe, Scandinavia and North Africa, reviewing hotels for The Telegraph (UK), writing on contemporary art and design and working on various magazine projects. Her enchantment with the city began via its starring role in New Wave cinema, and while its 19th-century architectural grace and historic frisson still give her goosebumps on a daily basis, it's Paris' contemporary art and music scene, its many multicultural quartiers and ever evolving culinary culture that really thrills her.
