GIVE PARIS A HUG
The November terrorist attacks targeted young Parisians with friends on patios in the 10th and 11th arrondissements. These neighbourhoods are little incubators of local culture, and they’re trying to return to a semblance of normalcy. So help the City of Light shine a bit brighter by visiting this summer. Stay at Hotel de Nell for a high-design experience complete with Japanese bathtubs. Eat at Richer, a bistro with a delectable strawberry sorbet and tarragon salad, and Du Pain et Des Idées, an ornate centuries-old bakery that serves arguably the city’s best pain au chocolat. Stroll along tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin and shop the chic boutiques of Rue de Marseille, including Medecine Douce for its colourful handmade jewellery.
