Mythical Paris

This straight line runs through the HEART of the city. Walking its length, you'll travel through centuries of history. Traversed daily by Parisians, often in their cars, it is peppered with MUSEUMS and splendid MONUMENTS you just can't miss. Also gorgeous at night!

The local: the impeccable businessman.

Petit Palais

An architectural marvel built for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, it's style is a blend of the classic and Art Nouveau. Its groundbreaking architect even used reinforced concrete, which was unheard of at the time! Enjoy the floors and ceilings of the vestibule at the museum's entrance, the colonnade, the frescoes of the very romantic interior garden... And the nice little cafe where you can stop at the end of your visit.

Place François 1er

This has nothing to do with the postcard version of Paris. This Parisian square is all about discretion, understated luxury, classic French elegance. It's remarkably quiet, despite its proximity to the Champs-Elysées. Constructed in 1865, the square is surrounded by sumptuous mansions protected by bars and trees. There is a beautiful fountain at its center, with the faces of four women carved in white marble. The definition of harmony.

Atelier d’YSL

You, too, can enter the sanctum sanctorum! But if you want to visit the studio of this haut couture genius, you need to reserve several weeks in advance. Then you'll have the privilege of exploring the studio of Yves Saint Laurent himself, hearing anecdotes recounted by your guide, and seeing some of his original sketches and iconic pieces. This visit also includes entry to the Foundation's temporary exhibit.

Mini Palais

Wait till the weather's nice to lounge around among the palms under the elegant arcades of the Grand Palais. The menu proposed by chef Eric Fréchon is traditional, and the food is good. But the terrace, which is slightly elevated, tucked out of the way, and decorated with the mosaics of the Grand Palais, is a must. Frequented by professionals and tourists, but it's a good spot to see and be seen, a distinctly Parisian sport. 3 Avenue Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris +33 1 42 56 42 42

Beef Club

A tantalizing place for meat lovers. Opened by a team that can do no wrong when it comes to Paris nightlife, this restaurant has a hip, vintage decor, with boldly tiled floors, designer furniture and, most of all, direct access to the Ballroom, a kind of dance hall for 30-something Parisians. Don't let all this distract you from the food itself, which features beef from venerated French butcher Le Bourdonnec, and fries cooked in duck fat. Like we said, it's for serious carnivores...

Uma

Peru meets Japan?? We're not kidding! If you don't believe us, head straight to Uma for the newest weird and wonderful fusion restaurant in Paris. It occupies two floors, so start off at the cocktail bar on the ground floor, where Latin and Asian influences mingle. Upstairs is the restaurant, run by chef Lucas Felzine, formerly of L'Arpège. Marvelous gyoza (pot stickers), sea bream ceviche, Noir de Bigorre pork...

Zadig et Voltaire

This brand with a rock-and-roll vibe has been the rage in Paris for years and, last year, it opened a new store on the Champs-Elysées roundabout. Although the basement level is not terribly inspiring, the large ground floor space features quite a few of the brand's defining pieces designed by Thierry Gillier (grandson of the founder of Lacoste): Tunisian t-shirts, cashmere sweaters with Elvis or Mick Jagger prints, chic, distressed leather bags...12-14 Rond point des Champs Elysées 75008 Paris

Librairie du Jeu de Paume

A coffee table book? A photo of an artist on a 2€ postcard? A view of the Tuileries Garden? A professional and attentive staff? This bookstore has all of that and more! So stock up on those postcards! As a rule, all of the Parisian museum bookstores are a genuine delight that never gets old.

Christian Louboutin

Red alert, femme fatale sighting! Glamorous, sexy and luxurious, Christian Louboutin's stilettos love to flash their red soles. This Parisian designer trained with Roger Vivier and Charles Jourdan before launching his own brand at 27. He's now a favorite of Parisian women who like to party and businesswomen who want to make a statement. Recently, Louboutin added a red nail polish to his catalog.
