INSIDER'S TIPS FOR PARIS
People watch at the Luxembourg Gardens. Bordered by Saint-Germain-des-Pres and the Latin Quarter. Children of all ages race their sailboats, take in a puppet show, or ride the city’s oldest merry-go-round. A favorite circuit for joggers and amblers, the many paths are also perfect for an afternoon stroll past orchards and the old apiary, where beekeeping is taught and the honey is sold in autumn. Don’t miss the excellent art exhibits at the renowned Musée de Luxembourg.
See Paris from the top of Sacre-Coeur Basilica. The view is breath taking, and, best of all, is free.
The Marais area is an ideal spot for shopping with high-fashion chains, vintage stores, ar galleries and perfumeries. Located in the historic 3rd and 4th arrondissements, the Marais’s 17th-century private mansions, outstanding museums (Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, Musée Carnavalet, Musée Picasso, Musée Cognacq-Jay), restaurants, cafes, and cocktail bars, and the lovely Place des Vosges make it an absolute must-see.
Go On a Chocolate Crawl in St Germain des Pres. In the last decade, this neighbourhood has morphed into France’s - and the world’s - chocolate central. More than 20 world-class chocolatiers inhabit the quartier, each with a signature style. In an afternoon, chocolate lovers can sample the creamiest ganaches, scented truffles, liqueur-filled bonbons, and any other chocolaty confection under the sun.
