VBGetaway: Paris

June 25, 2014

There's nothing better than a few days in Paris... Even though I know the city well, I find that there's always something new for me to discover. And the places I revisit always seem to look more beautiful than I ever remembered. Here are a few tips I put together from my most recent trip to the City of Lights. - Allison Aston, SVP Branding & Communications at Veronica Beard

Eat

L'Avenue
Perfect for people watching and a late lunch off of Avenue Montaigne. (And not too far from my favorite shopping destination, Montaigne Market!)

Pavilion Montsouris
Located in one of the most beautiful parks in Paris. Great for lunch or dinner - be sure to sit outside!

Phillipe Excoiffer
An absolute must for dinner in the 7th Arr.

Stay

Airbnb
We decided to try Airbnb and found the cutest spot in the 6th right by around the corner from Les Deux Magots and La Society!

Hotel Park Hyatt
The Hotel Park Hyatt has one of the best locations in Paris - Rue de la Paiz, right off Place Vendome and near some of my favorite shops in Paris.

See/Do

Paris Museum Pass
This pass is an absolute must - it enables you VIP access to museums all over Paris. Get yours at thecitycase.com.

Luxembourg Gardens
Originally built for Catherine de Medici. This is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Paris, and there's always a special exhibition on view.

The Muse National De L'Orangerie
In the Tulleries Garden. A small but amazing collection of work including Claude Monet's vestibule paintings of Water Lillies and works from most of the major Impressionists.
