One of the best ways to enjoy this city full of rich history, culture, and fashion is to visit for a short stay that forces you to carefully curate your experience. Instead of visiting as many Parisian tourist traps as possible, take time to plan and enjoy a few sights each day; if you don’t find time to check everything off your list, know you’ll be back. Remember–Paris is always a good idea.
Upon Arrival: Take a moment to unwind and relax. Centering yourself after a long flight with a cool shower or bath will improve circulation and boost your mood. A quick visit to any of Paris’ famed patisseries also helps. We love Claus, especially for afternoon tea, right near the Palais-Royal, and Angelina opposite the Tuileries Gardens for something a little more indulgent such as hot chocolate or Millefeuille.
Stay: For a typical Parisian experience stay at Jules et Jim, an intimate boutique hotel conveniently located in the heart of the Marais. For those looking to treat themselves we suggest the Plaza Athénée, where suites include balconies with incomparable views of the Eiffel Tower and priority access to the iconic Dior Institut.
