A trip to Paris would not be complete without a lavish shopping excursion, and there is no better place to shop in Paris than the Galleries Lafayette. One of the oldest malls in Europe, it boasts “la coupole dome” which soars more than 108 feet above its fancy boutiques. Enjoy a coffee on one of the terraces to rest your shopping-bag laden arms and view the incredible glasswork all around. Be sure not to miss out on a trip to the rooftop for breathtaking views of the city.
Near the galleries you will find the restaurant Le Pain Quotidien, a French country style restaurant which hosts a menu of organic options as well as vegan choices. Be sure to visit their website to view locations and menus.
Thankfully, we also have a littel bit of this French blessing Le Pain Quotidien in The States too!
The one you have been waiting for this entire article! The Eiffel tower is the most visited monument in the entire world, with around seven million visitors annually. There are restaurants on the first two levels of the tower, which would certainly be the most memorable and romantic options. Make sure to make reservations well in advance if you plan to dine here!
Another option near the tower is La Verriere. Though it may fall short of capturing the ambiance and romance of dining in the tower itself, it is great for those of who spend a lot of time in Paris and simply want to catch a healthy organic meal before an evening stroll along the Seine. The restaurant features a fresh pressed juice menu at the front (you must know to ask for this) and buffet style dinning with a variety of fresh vegetables and other organic treats.
To skip the lines on the above-mentioned monuments and also save some cash, consider purchasing a 2, 4, or 6 day Pairs Pass.
Bon voyage mes amis!
