IMGP4822On day three, go to the Louvre and follow the hordes to the Mona Lisa, or meditate in the French sculpture area – either way leave at least 4 hours for this; there is an incredible amount to see – don’t plan on doing it all. Walk across to the left bank and grab a pastry and a coffee at a café before exploring some of the shops. Take the metro to Montmartre, see the view over the city and Sacre Coeur lit up at night and have dinner in this lively district.

 

On your departure day, after packing up and storing your luggage in your hotel, head to one of Paris’s best restaurants for a gastronomic experience.  We went to lunch at Guy Savoy, which turned out to be our favorite event in Paris. After, we were giddy with happiness and stuffed with food and wine. In late afternoon, unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Paris and head to the airport for our flight.



Which museums to go to:

Musee D’Orsay: If you’re a fan of Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Gauguin, etc. this is the museum for you.

Louvre: with 35,000 of the best works of art from all over this is a history of the world and an art museum rolled into one.


Where to stay:

We chose Hotel Residence Foch because of its great reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly, the rooms clean, the breakfast adequate, and most of all the location excellent, in an area of embassies and expensive apartments only about a ten minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees. The best part of our room is that we were on the top floor with a small terrace where we could see the very top of the Eiffel tower and its dancing lights.


Where to eat:

Guy Savoy: the Best Restaurant in Paris (click link to read review and get more information). Gastronomic heaven.

L’Auberge DAB, 161 Ave Malakoff, Paris 16th (Porte Maillot). Very fresh seafood, classic French dishes, nice atmosphere, filled with Parisians rather than tourists, the menu is only 39 euros each including aperitif, four courses, and a half bottle of wine.
