Follow your Ultimate Paris Guide private concierge itinerary through those exceptional places. In this second list there is something for every taste and every moment of the day!
Le Café Jacquemart Andre : The private mansion Jacquemart-André is best known for the museum it houses. Magnificent 19th century residence of the art collector Edouard André and Nélie Jacquemart, it also hides a very charming coffee. Make a break taking a seat in the couple’s
magnificent dining room or on the small terrace overlooking the hotel’s garden, this is the ideal place for a nice moment for two. The café offers light dishes for lunch as well as pastries for a gourmet break in the afternoon. Finally, why not let yourself be tempted by a visit to the rest of the house? And do not be fooled, the queue for the museum is not that for coffee. Go inside the mansion of the mansion even if there is the line outside explaining that you go to the cafe!
The Terrass hotel’s restaurant : There is not many terraces in Paris with a panoramic view. We suggest to take the lift to the 7th floor, or climb the 127 stairs, to discover an intimate and unique setting with endless views over Paris. Just recently
renovated, perched on the Butte Montmartre, the Terrass hotel offers on its roof an exceptional place. By choosing this address, expect to see stars in the eyes of your beloved arriving on the terrace. The view is simply Breathtaking. A sure value for the beautiful days…
Le Musée de la Vie Romantique : This free access museum is much more than a museum. It is located in Pigalle, in the district of “La Nouvelle Athènes” in the North of Paris. Beyond the works of the artist Ary Scheffer and objects presented around the woman of letters George Sand, the place is full of charm.
The ground floor is devoted to George Sand: portraits, furniture, and jewelry from the 18th and 19th centuries. On the first floor, paintings by Ary Scheffer are surrounded by works by his contemporaries. A small paved walkway, a vast house, a flower garden, and yet, you are still in Paris! Let yourself be tempted also by a gourmet break to enjoy the small tables near the greenhouse.
Covered passages : A must to do, in the
center of Paris, as a lovely walk to do with your beloved. Built for the majority in the 19th century, these “covered passages” pierced in the middle of the buildings and surmounted by glass windows constitute an architectural curiosity typical of Paris. Most of them have shops, tea rooms or restaurants. Paris counts about twenty, located in the center. The longest passage is the “Passage Choiseul”. The “Galerie Vivienne”, very close to the Palais-Royal, is one of the most emblematic. As for the passage of the “Grand-Cerf”, with its aerial structure in metal and wrought iron high of 12 meters, it is one of the most spectacular passages of Paris.
Stroll in La Butte aux cailles: Beside Montmartre which is the most famous hill of Paris, you must discover “La Butte aux cailles”. Quiet by day and noisy at night, it is a piece of countryside isolated of the rest of the city that has kept its village atmosphere. Don’t expect to find there monuments. Strolling Butte aux Cailles with its houses lovely
colorful, is above all enjoy its peaceful streets, its silence and its greenery with your beloved.
