In Celebration of National Splurge Day
National Splurge Day (June 18th) is finally here! What better way to celebrate than by booking a trip to your favorite travel destination – Paris. We have gathered a list of ten things that you must do while enjoying your splurge-worthy trip in this luxurious city.
1. Book a room at Le Bristol Paris
In the heart of Paris’ fashion and art district, you’ll find the prestigious Le Bristol Paris. Equipped with a three-story spa, beautiful French-style hotel garden, and bright, spacious architecture, this hotel is everything you are looking for and more. Book a room at this classic eighteenth-century style getaway to bask in your luxurious French filled travel.
2. Arrange a chauffeured vintage convertible excursion
Although Paris is known as a city for walking, exploring the streets in a vintage Citroen 2CV is a treat of its own. During your private tour, you will see all of Paris’ main attractions, learn about the history of the city, and even make a stop at the famous Ladurée tea room. This three-hour experience is a must if you want to get in as much sight-seeing as possible and still look stylish while doing so.
3. Shop at world-renowned fashion centre, Champs-Élysées
Home to leading designer brands like Chanel, Céline, Gucci and Prada, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées needs no introduction. As one of France’s top attractions, there are always festive events organized along the beautiful avenue to give you the most out of your splurge-worthy day in Paris. If you love to sport these luxury brands, head here to enjoy an unforgettable shopping spree.
4. Craft your own perfume at La Maison des Parfums Candora
Located in the very heart of Paris, the Candora boutique is well known for its elegant fragrances, scented candles, and even perfumed chocolates. Join other Francophiles, like yourself, and take part in one of their perfume creation workshops. For 2 hours at the boutique, let your imagination run wild as you create your very own personalized French perfume.
5. Book a pastry making class at The Ritz Escoffier School
There is no better way to truly understand French culture than to engage in French culinary. At the Ritz Paris, you can take a variety of cooking classes taught by world famous chefs. We recommend one of their pastry making classes, where you will learn how to master the art of the French pastry and share your knowledge of the trade when you arrive back home. The classes are all conducted in French and simultaneously translated into English for the most authentic experience.
6. Treat yourself to a day of relaxation at the Free Persephone
As far as unique spas go, the Free Persephone in Paris tops the competition. Known for their welcoming space, green aesthetic, and warm lighting, this luxurious spa acts as a nature sanctuary for all its guests. Treat yourself to an aromatic massage, facial, manicure, pedicure, or whatever your heart desires on your self-care splurge day.
7. Take a sunset sail along the Seine
If you want to make the most of your time in Paris, book a sunset cruise with Bateaux Mouches on the Seine. For a private sailing option, Bateaux Mouches offers a fine dining experience accompanied by piano and violin music for the ultimate Parisienne atmosphere. After you pass by the many notable sites along your ride, we recommend staying close by the Seine to enjoy the beauty of Paris lit up at night.
8. Indulge in a gourmet meal at Le Jules Verne
As one of the Eiffel Tower’s most exclusive restaurants, Le Jules Verne offers you an incredible view of Paris at 410 feet high. Enjoy the ambiance as you dine on a three-course meal of contemporary French cuisine. Paired with three glasses of wine and one Champagne, your experience here is sure to be filled with memories you’ll hold close forever.
9. Take a private tour after hours at the Louvre
The Louvre is one of the most iconic museums in the entire world, which makes it an extreme tourist spot for travelers all over. You can enjoy this French staple, without the crowds, by booking a VIP evening tour with groups of just 25 people or fewer. Take in all the museum has to offer, while also partaking in a local wine and cheese tasting with your English-speaking guide.
10. Experience a cabaret show at Lido De Paris
Go to Lido de Paris for the most dazzling evening filled with sparkling lights and glittering feathers.
