A Parisian Holiday with Style Icon Giovanna Battaglia
Fashion Editor for W Magazine
I want to do everything and go everywhere. I crave beautiful clear water and nature, but on the other end I also love to explore amazing palaces and museums! When I travel, I love anything from culture to adventure to just being super relaxed not wanting to do anything – it really depends on my mood and the season.
My earliest travel memory is of Paris. I would spend my perfect day here for so many reasons: food, architecture, romance, culture, wine, and beauty all around! My most memorable moment here was having lunch with my friends on a very chic boat on the Seine, all for us! We had so much fun and had incredible views. The most romantic thing you can do here is stroll through the Jardin de Luxembourg. For going out at night, I would head to Chez Raspoutine, Le Montana Supper Club, or Silencio. I would stay at either the Shangri-La Hotel or Le Bristol Paris.
The place I'm most excited to go next is Africa.
