Glamorous Paris

Hermès to your left, Dior to your right, fine jewelers and the GRANDS MAGASINS in between, you're in the heart of CHIC and ostentatious Paris. The gilded roof of the Opéra…Theater, ballet, fashion...Where the ARTS blend divinely with history.

The local: designer overcoat and flawless hair.

Musée Gustave Moreau

Nothing at all like the capital's major museums, this mansion-turned-museum just reopened after lengthy restoration work. Before becoming the sanctuary beloved by Marcel Proust and André Breton, the Musée National Gustave Moreau was Moreau's home in the 19th century. His vow to leave his entire body of work to posterity is now a reality, and more than 25,000 works of art – 15,000 of which are his own – are now housed here. 14 Rue de la Rochefoucauld, 75009 Paris +33 1 48 74 38 50

Les Jardins du Palais Royal

Designed by Cardinal Richelieu, this superb garden will bring out the romantic in you... Strolling under the shade of lime and chestnut trees, and through the galleries surrounding the central pool, it may occur to you that Josephine de Beauharnais, the future Empress, could once be seen walking these very paths in very gallant company... And Paris loves a contrast, which explains the contemporary columns created by Buren in the garden.

Galerie Vivienne

We simply must tell you about this other superb covered passage, which is bursting with Paris history. If you want to show off, tell your friends that the decor is in the neo-classical Pompeian style. Covered by an elegant skylight, with paintings and sculptures throughout and a floor done in mosaics, the Galerie Vivienne today houses some unremarkable shops, but is worth the trip just for the glorious architecture.

Le Saturne

"Chemical-free wines and food without artifice." That is the philosophy of chef Sven Chartier, who comes to Le Saturne by way of L’Arpège. In this restaurant, the best products meet the finest technique. And you can tell the difference! It's a zen, modern setting (oh, the lamps!), clean and understated, where the emphasis is on the food. Surprise menu made up of six main dishes: crab, monkfish, superb desserts...Don't hold back. 17 Rue Notre-Dame des Victoires, 75002 Paris

Le Nemours

This traditional French café-brasserie is a hub for actors, tourists and professionals. Even Angelina Jolie came here for a film shoot. There's also its perfect location on the Place Colette, with a view of the Comédie Française and the "kiosque des noctambules" metro entrance slash contemporary art installation created by Jean-Michel Othoniel. And then there are the waiters, who are fairly friendly, and an atmosphere that isn't snobby. 2 Galerie de Nemours, 75001 Paris

Gyoza Bar

Gyoza (pot stickers) are a traditional and iconic Japanese dish. Here, the small steamed ravioli are served with class and refinement, in servings of 8 (7€) or 12 (9€) pieces. They're stuffed with the superior pork of Hugo Desnoyer, a renowned Parisian butcher whose meats are highly sought after. We love the large oak counter and slate walls, which add to the minimalist and zen atmosphere. Enjoy your gyoza with some green tea. 56 Passage des Panoramas, 75002 Paris

Womb

Very pretty concept shop for children's goods. The space is immense and full of light, and there are so many things to see, you don't quite know where to look first: furniture, including sublime Harto, Woodwork and Nobodinoz desks, Oeuf NYC side tables, Bloom chaise longues... Light fixtures by Eno and Egmont Toys, posters from Lilipinso and Ferm Living, glow-in-the-dark stickers by Mimi Lou...And fashion for kids up to age 3. Workshops for moms-to-be too! 93 Rue Réaumur, 75002 Paris +33 1 42 36 06 77

Repetto

Alert! Major fashion classic ahead! For the full Paris experience, you absolutely have to swing by this marvelous place where every woman can embrace her inner ballerina. Since 1947, when Rose Repetto created her first ballet shoes, this brand has been all about fine French craftsmanship. And you don't have to be a ballet dancer to buy yourself a pair of the legendary ballet flats that are so typically Parisian.

Zef

"I'm not fashionable," says the founder of Zef, a children's clothing brand featuring timeless and lyrical designs. A sheepskin vest, bows and accessories in Liberty prints, lightweight swirl skirts, soft slippers in Nepalese wool... Everything here is soft and cuddly, from the cuts to the materials to the colors. Take some home to your own rascals if you want to dress them just like little Parisians!
