Paris Panorama

Don't let the throngs of tourists and street vendors selling miniature Eiffel Towers stop you from enjoying the VIEW, or the exceptional MUSEUMS. Then you can go picnic by the old carousel on the Champs de Mars, not far from the EMBASSIES.

The local: traditional upper-crust families.

Musée Rodin

This 18th-century mansion and its grounds are amazing! Simple and full of light, the architecture accentuates the sculptor's works and the genius radiating from each of them. You are instantly entranced by The Thinker and The Kiss. Rodin's erotic drawings, and the sculptures of his beloved mistress, Camille, are dazzling. And you should plan to spend a while in the garden, so you can see the bronzes under light from different angles. 79 Rue de Varenne, 75007 Paris

Palais Galliera

An impressive example of Beaux-Arts style in the middle of a park! Rather unusual in Paris! Founded by the Duchess of Galliera in 1879, this museum was recently renovated by the City of Paris and now contains sumptuous exhibits featuring clothing and fashion designers. When you have seen all you can see, cross the street and have a coffee at the Palais de Tokyo, where the in-crowd hangs out.

Un pique-nique au Champs de Mars

You simply must experience the long lawns of the Champ de Mars with their stunning view of the Eiffel Tower and the Ecole Militaire. Open to everyone, they are a prime picnic spot for students when the weather is nice. Bring your own dinner picnic and admire the glittering lights of the Eiffel Tower while serenaded by the young people nearby strumming their guitars...

Café Constant

You'll find no nonsense here. Celebrity chef Constant serves refined, fresh and traditional cuisine in a restaurant decorated in typical, simple Parisian style. You'll enjoy the original flooring and zinc bar as well! Scrambled egg mousse, black Périgord truffles, lobster ravioli with a light, creamy shellfish sauce… "I prepare traditional brasserie cuisine inspired by my grandmother's recipes." Very popular. Note: reservations not accepted. 139 Rue St-Dominique, 75007 Paris, +33 1 47 53 73 34

Les Cocottes

The restaurant that all of Paris is talking about, and where you can't make a reservation (grrr!), so you have to be patient, because you're going to stand around waiting for a table...How very Parisian! Seated at the (large) counter, and bumping elbows with pretty much everyone, including the chef, you can order delicious "cocottes" (casseroles cooked to perfection in little cast iron pots) and savor dishes like lobster fricassee with vegetables. 135 Rue St-Dominique, 75007 Paris. +33 1 45 50 10 28

Les Ombres

You must admit that the top of the Musée du Quai Branly would be an enticing spot for a restaurant. For one thing, you're already surrounded by art, and you're also in the heart of Paris, with a view that won't let you forget the fact that it's a gorgeous city! It's wonderful to sit on the terrace in the spring, and you'll feel like you can practically reach out and touch the Eiffel Tower from your table. Traditional cuisine that has been modernized.

Comptoir Richard

Get the ultimate Paris souvenir for yourself and friends at Comptoir Richard, just a 15-minute walk from your hotel. If you like fine teas and coffees, choose from their selection of bulk teas and beans (ground when you order for maximum freshness) and they'll wrap them up for you. In any case, you'll love the white porcelain "Cafés Richard" cups (4.90€ each) and teapots because they're the exact same ones used in the cafes of Paris! A must have. 145 Rue St-Dominique, 75007 Paris, +331 53 59 99 18

Noro

Such finesse. Did you believe such a thing was possible? The enormously talented designer Claire Lefort has created her own universe. Asymetrical cuts, sparkling fabrics, lyrical details, cloth pompoms, fabrics dyed in mid-tones, embroidered blouses... Her collections for women and children are true marvels. She also has a selection of accessories (by April Showers and Polder in particular). A romantic, bohemian vibe that is très chic.

Le Moulin de la Vierge

A genuine, old-style Parisian bakery and pastry shop. At the edge of the embassy neighborhood and its continuous ballet of big black cars, this bakery is always flawless. Parisians come from miles away to buy their baked goods here: renowned millefeuilles, dense and tasty chocolate éclairs, perfect cannelais (a specialty of Bordeaux), divine raspberry tarts (when in season)... Only the service leaves something to be desired, but we're in Paris after all!
