Visit the Musée Baccarat
France is as well known for its fine tableware—such as porcelain, silverware, crystal—as it is for its culinary tradition. Most of the famous brands’ showrooms are located on Rue Royale but Baccarat decided few years ago to move its flagship store into a beautiful private resi-dence, the Hôtel de Noailles, which is situated on the Place des Etats-Unis, just a few minutes walk from the hotel. The surprising staging of the decoration was designed by Philippe Stark in order to present the boutique as well as the rich museum with unique pieces and the Cristal Room restaurant.
9 Place des Etat-Unis – 75116 — Closed Tue & Sun.
Explore a food market
Markets are a part of our culture. They take place twice a week in the morning. There, one can find fresh vegetables, meat, fish, cheese stands, flowers, spices and just about any foodstuffs you could imag-ine.
They usually take place in residential parts of Paris and there are many of them : le Marché des Enfants-Rouges or Marché d’Aligre are the most famous but the closest one from the hotel is located on Avenue President Wilson every Wednesday and Saturday morning.
Avenue du Président Wilson – 75016—Wed. And Sat.
Visit Museum of Modern Art de Paris or the Musée Guimet
Located in the same avenue as the above mentioned market, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is hosted in the Palais de Tokyo and proposes temporary exhibitions but also remarkable per-manent collections.
On place d’Iena stands the museum of Asian Arts. Emile Guimet, an industrialist from Lyon who had a passion for Asian Arts created it in the late XIXth century and the place, after becoming a national mu-seum, received all works of Asian Art from the Louvre to become to-day one of the main museums of Asian arts around the globe.
And going to one or the other of these places, you will walk by a lovely monument, the Palais Galliéra, belonging to the city of Paris and dedi-cated to Fashion.

Take a cruise on River Seine
Even after many years living in Paris, one would never grow tired of rediscovering it by taking a cruise on the River Seine and passing under the most famous of the thirty seven Parisian bridges.
Most of the main Parisian monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, the Louvre and Orsay museums, the Conciergerie; are located along the river to mention only but a few of them.
You could use the Bateaux Parisiens, located by the Eiffel Tower, for a cruise which will last for about one hour and fifteen minutes and will permit you to discover or rediscover the City of Light.
Bateaux-Parisiens, Port de La Bourdonnais
Stroll along River Seine
If you don’t like boats, a walk along the banks of the Seine river is always a lovely way to discover Paris, from the Right Bank and its shady promenade and houseboats, to the quays on the Left Bank. From one bank to another, and from one of the most magnificent bridges, the Pont Alexandre III with the backdrop of the Invalides, to the Pont d’Iéna which faces the Eiffel Tower, you will discover some of the nicest views of Paris.
Cours Albert Ier, Cours La Reine, Quai d’Orsay, Quai Branly
Visit Jacquemart-André and Nissim de Camondo
Two of our favorite museums, both of them were private residences of some of the biggest fortunes of the XIXth century where they used to combine their refinement and taste for Art.
Nellie Jacquemart et Edouard André were collectors who dedicated their entire lives to their passion for Art. A visit of their private resi-dence enables you to discover their private apartments, ball room, jardin d’hiver and, upstairs, their private collection.
Moïse de Camondo was a banker and an XVIIIth century art lover. He conceived his residence in order to host his own Art collections includ-ing beautiful pieces of furniture and paintings. The museum also shows a sumptuous porcelain collection, a kitchen, and a bathroom which must have been one of the very first in the capital.
Jacquemart-André – 158 Boulevard Haussmann – 75008 – Open 7/7
Nissim de Camondo – 63 rue de Monceau – 75008 – Closed Mon. & Tue.
Rest in the shade of the Eiffel Tower
Although this controversial construction which was supposed to be short-lived, the Eiffel Tower became the icon of Paris and one of the most visited monuments around the world. The tower was built on the Champs de Mars park which was one of the most important place during the French Revolution: July 14th 1790 took place in this exact spot and is still celebrated as our National Day. The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 for the Universal Exhibition and at a height of 320 meters it was a true technical exploit for the period. Lines to visit the monu-ment can be lengthy but it is wonderful to admire it from the Champ de Mars or the Trocadero.
