Where Paris - - My Paris -

Paris is known around the world as the City of Light. What would you rec­om­mend vis­i­tors do in the evenings to re­ally take in its beauty? A bi­cy­cle or Seg­way city tour to en­joy the main sight­see­ing spots of the city. You can end your evening at Gi­rafe restau­rant for din­ner in front of the Eif­fel Tower. You will en­joy the shin­ing show, which starts each hour and lasts for 5 min­utes, un­fold be­fore your eyes. As a culi­nary cap­i­tal what are three of your favourite restau­rants that you would rec­om­mend our read­ers to try? For a gas­tro­nom­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence I will sug­gest Restau­rant du Palais Royal. If you are look­ing for a brasserie, try Ré­jane. For a nice bistro, Bouil­lon Pi­galle will be per­fect for a typ­i­cal Parisian at­mos­phere. What are the top three mon­u­ments not to be missed while in Paris? Musée Jac­que­mart-An­dré to ad­mire the architecture and the most beau­ti­ful pri­vate col­lec­tion of Parisian art near the Champs-Elysées. The win­ter gar­den em­bel­lished with an ex­tra­or­di­nary dual revo­lu­tion stair­case is one of my favourite parts. Palais Royal. It’s one of ev­ery Parisian’s favourite places for a stroll. The ComédieFrançaise, the Palais-Royal the­atre and the Grand Vé­four restau­rant, which is a listed his­tor­i­cal mon­u­ment. Bac­carat is a mu­seum ex­hibit­ing in Paris a se­lec­tion of pieces made by the Bac­carat crys­tal fac­tory, in Lor­raine. If our read­ers wanted to spend their day shop­ping, would you rec­om­mend they do so on the Right Bank or the Left Bank? Marché Paul Bert & Ser­pette where 350 an­tique deal­ers of­fer you the best of antiques and de­sign. Marché des En­fantsRouges market will of­fer you a wide se­lec­tion of fresh sea­sonal pro­duce. Ga­lerie Vivi­enne, over 176 me­ters long and un­der a glass canopy that il­lu­mi­nates the old mo­saic floor, boasts shops that dis­play re­fined lux­ury What would be the most ro­man­tic date in the cap­i­tal of ro­mance? In my opin­ion a din­ner cruise on the Seine with Du­casse sur Seine on the first elec­tric boat of the city will be the best op­tion. You will en­joy a won­der­ful gas­tro­nomic din­ner with a nice gen­eral view of the city by night. All the lights un­der the many his­toric bridges and mon­u­ments of Paris cre­ate a ro­man­tic at­mos­phere. What would you rec­om­mend for fam­i­lies to dis­cover while vis­it­ing the French cap­i­tal? Jardin d’Ac­cli­mata­tion in Bois de Boulogne is a great fam­ily amuse­ment park with at­trac­tions and the ac­cess to the Louis Vuit­ton Foun­da­tion through the gar­den is free. A cruise of Canal Saint-Martin to dis­cover the charm of the Saint Martin canal lined with hun­dred-year-old trees. Ro­man­tic and un­usual. Gar­den­ing work­shop on the roof of the Brach with the gar­dener. What are your favourite cock­tail bars in the city? Dis­cover the un­usual speakeasy Moon­shiner bar hid­den at the back of a pizze­ria. Ostrea et Perdi­tion, a hid­den bar un­der an oys­ter bar. And the Speakeasy Jazz Club. Brunch and high tea are Sun­day favourites, where would you sug­gest to our read­ers to en­joy the best treats? Teatime & Treats at Sébastien Gau­dard next to the Tui­lerie Gar­den. And brunch at Brach Ho­tel.
