The notion that Paris is always a good idea may feel exaggerated, but the fact is that a trip to the City of Light never disappoints. Perhaps that’s because it has all the elements of cosmopolitan capital—Michelin-starred restaurants, legendary palace hotels and some of the chicest concept shops you’ll find anywhere in the world. No other does it with quite the same attitude and conviction as Paris. As in Rome or London, when walking its cobblestoned streets for hours (no matter the arrondissement), it’s hard not to be dazzled by the architecture, the views along the seine and the history all around you. Just like a Chanel suit, Paris is forever iconic.

    3 Days: Paris for Romantics

    The iconic capital is arguably the world’s most romantic city. Indagare can arrange a custom itinerary with behind-the-scenes access to museums, private tours and day trips. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

    • Day 1: Left Bank & Seine

      Begin with a guided visit to St-Germain-des-Prés, that includes gallery hopping and a tour of many beloved haunts of famous authors of the post-war era. After lunch, stroll through the impossibly romantic Jardin du Luxembourg before making your way to the Musée Rodin. Your guide will explain the artist’s incredible legacy as you explore the 18th-century villa filled with stunning sculptures. Finally, board a chic Riva boat for a private sunset cruise (complete with Champagne) on the Seine.

    • Day 2: Marais & Canal

      After an indulgent breakfast, take a guided tour of the Marais’ many galleries, stopping at its cute one-off boutiques and funky cafés and restaurants along the way. Next, visit the Musée Picasso with your guide to admire its vast collection of the artist’s work before wandering through the quaint Île St-Louis and stopping for lunch. Stroll around Canal St-Martin and the neighborhood’s eponymous Napoléon-era tree-lined canal, one of the most romantic spots to pass an afternoon. Enjoy dinner at one of Indagare’s favorite classic restaurants.

    • Day 3: Shopping & Cooking

      Spend the morning perusing the shops on Avenue Montaigne and studying the trove of Old Master paintings and sculpture at Musée Jacquemart-André. For lunch, take a cooking class with a local chef who will teach you the intricacies of French cuisine. Stroll through the historic neighborhood, stopping at one of its little cafés for coffee or a glass of wine. In the evening, toast to your Paris sojourn over a delicious dinner at one of the city’s most renowned foodie temples.

    "We had fantastic dining experiences. We loved Monsieur Bleu for its food and atmosphere. Hôtel Costes was fun with great people watching and was close to our hotel. Angelina, Berthillon and Fauchon were also musts for our family.” Read the Postcard.

“For all of its grandeur—sweeping grand boulevards, iconic monuments and gold-tinged bridges criss-crossing the Seine—there is something instantly intimate and familiar about Paris. It’s the Parisians’ joie de vivre and slower pace of life that, for me, has spoiled every other city.”

“I love the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, a big flea market where you can find one-of-a-kind-pieces. While it can be a bit expensive, it should be experienced whether or not you buy anything. My father and I would go when I was a kid, where we’d browse beautiful furniture from as far back as the 1930s as well as vintage jewelry collections. I also like 107 Rivoli, the shop in Les Arts Décoratifs, is great for finding really original pieces, from jewelry to tableware.”
