THE 101 "Bucket List" to get Inspired







#LeParisisHotel-Eiffel #leparisishotel


What could be more romantic and authentic then to be able to admire the Eiffel Tower from your  hotel room. For some it's a criteria for their trip in Paris, but unfortunately it's not that easy to find. The +Eiffel LeParisis offers more than 50 rooms, giving onto Boulevard de Grenelle, with a splendid view on the Eiffel Tower.

thank you parisinfo

Just sitting on the bed relaxing from the day well spend running around Paris or  just daydreaming the Eiffel Tower glows for those who can appreciate her beauty.

Things to do in Paris for January 2016

Paris doesn't slow down after the holidays, in fact, it starts gearing up for more events.
Known as the City of Celebration, Paris kicks off with a New Year's day Seine River classical music concert cruise & at the newly refreshed St. Chapelle. 
January is also an ideal month in Paris to head indoors for a French cooking class, wine tasting or a skip-the-line Louvre walking tour. 
The weather may be chilly but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a day trip to Versailles.
