DEFINITELY DELICIOUS WALKS
LOUVRE – TUILERIES – MADELEINE
A dialogue with Leonardo da Vinci and the Mona Lisa in the heart of Paris. Catwalk fashion, luxury and great restaurants.
♥ 17 – Praça Vendôme – Rua Saint Honoré e Faubourg Saint Honoré
If Avenue Montaigne is known as the most luxurious street in Paris, it is between Vendöme Square, Rue Saint Honoré and Faubourg Saint Honoré that Paris has a particularly special shine.
Sophisticated boutiques, luxurious hotels, cafés frequented by “posh” people. Do not be surprised if you cross on the street with Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld or even Woody Allen.
And please, do not be in a hurry: you are where everything, or almost everything happens, when it comes to fashion, good restaurants, museums or just if you want to feel like a true Parisian for a few hours…

By the way you are obliged to go through restaurants, bars, bistros frequented by the habitants of the neighborhood, in a delight of environment. This square has a special charm because it is surrounded by restaurants that shelter, on their terraces, an eclectic clientele at any time of the day. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you have different options for all tastes and pockets. In the late afternoon the place is invaded by the cool and chic clientele of the neighborhood.
Do not hesitate: La Trattoria Bellusci, Fuxia, Nomad’s, L’absinthe, Très Honoré, Mme Shawn. A relaxed place, always very lively, surrounded by funky and modern shops and a small “marché” with fruits, vegetables, cheeses, fish and even clothes!

♥ 19 – Tuileries
In this central part of the city there is one of the most beautiful gardens of Paris: the Tuileries. Between the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre, it is a haven of peace, but also of the city’s effervescent events. The Tuileries, before being a garden, was a castle (which currently no longer exists), built in 1564 by Catherine de Médicis. It is the largest and oldest garden in Paris, so it is great to walk through it to enjoy the sculptures of this “museum” outdoors. You will find magnificent works created by Rodin, Carpeaux, Max Ernst, Giacometti et Maillol as well as the Orangerie Museum with the famous Nymphéas by Claude Monet and a remarkable collection of works by Cézanne, Renoir, Picasso and Matisse. The garden also houses the Jeu de Paume, an exhibition space of photography and image. This is where many of Paris Fashion Week’s famous fashion shows take place and you can see the entrance and exit of celebrities coming from all over the world to the event.
