City Guide: Paris


Tucked inside Paris’ Cité de l’Architecture, Girafe is a favorite for fresh seafood, 1930’s-inspired design, and its patio with Eiffel Tower views.

Visit the Plaza Athénée on a summer evening for a cocktail in the courtyard.

La Condesa is a tiny, prix fixe restaurant where everything from the spices to the flatware has a story. The very young, very experimental chef is the first Mexican to receive a Michelin star in Paris.


Visit the Frank Gehry designed museum, La Fondation Louis Vuitton.

Head to the city outskirts for a trip to Paris’ Gagosian gallery in Le Bourget.

Stop by Hotel Costes for a drink, dinner and a bit of funky people watching.

Duck into le Marche des Enfants Rouges for a snack or lunch from one of the stalls while shopping in Le Marais.


Make your way through Le Marais before landing at the three-story shop, Merci, a sun-drenched space filled with everything from flowers and childrens-wear to antiques and vintage fashion – and don’t miss their library cafe.

Spend an afternoon at Le Bon Marche, Paris’ oldest department store, and an art deco jewel.


Some of our favorite hotels: Pavillon de la Reine, La Reserve, and Relais Christine.
