MONOGRAMS OFFERS A LOCAL PERSPECTIVE ON PARIS
LITTLETON, Colorado – February 11, 2015 – Paris – the “City of Light” – is revered for its romance, its fashion, its architecture, museums, bridges and, of course, its skyline featuring the Eiffel Tower. The setting of countless novels and movies, it’s no wonder Audrey Hepburn said, “Paris is always a good idea.”
In 2015, Monograms is providing travelers more than 20, inclusive travel packages that feature Paris. Package options include everything from a 4-day Paris Getaway (priced from $753), 6-day Paris & Nice and 7-day A Week in London & Paris vacations to more extensive choices like 8-day Paris, Aix-en-Provence & Nice to 10-day London, Paris & Rome.
In a place where everything is foreign, Monograms promises to make France more enjoyable, manageable and fun. When travelers choose to travel to Paris – and through all of Europe – with Monograms, they stay in the heart of the action thanks to a choice of hand-selected hotels; they get the VIP treatment by skipping lines at must-see sights and they arrive stress-free, thanks to transportation to and around their destination.
In addition, Monograms provides travelers their own, on-site Local Host® who helps them personalize their experience: A one-of-a-kind, featured component of every Monograms vacation. In a city where the air itself feels enchanted, a local’s insight to help find everything from the best views to the most magical and cultural city walks is invaluable.
Kenia Mazola and Stephane Daire are two of Monograms’ Local Hosts in Paris. They have provided those travelers thinking about a Paris vacation in 2015 a handful of helpful, insider tips. According to them:
- The best views of Paris can be found from Montparnasse Tower.
- Strolling the Marais District – 18th century streets filled with charming antique stores, galleries and cafes – provides a glimpse of the intimate medieval city of Victor Hugo and Balzac novels (a time before Paris’ grand avenues were built).
- A favorite – and famous – Parisian dish to try is the tasty “butter and ham” sandwich (referred to as the “Sandwich Parisian”).
- France’s most famous cathedral, Notre Dame de Paris, is far more than a tourist attraction: It remains an active church. Consider basking in its 800-year history with an evening concert of classical music and medieval Gregorian chants.
- The Montmartre is the best spot in the city for delicious late-night eats.
- If you love wine, consider embarking on a wine-tasting through Paris’ Latin quarter.
- When spending time in Paris, enjoy the gardens. Local Host Stephane calls Paris’ gardens “temples of beauty and perfume.” He suggests a walk through Tuileries Garden – a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde.
- Whether it’s the first thing you see when you arrive or the last image you have as you depart, both Local Hosts agree the Eiffel Tower is a must-see. Stephane commented further to say the iconic tower, “inspires us to dance, jump and photograph ourselves and to commemorate our time in this beautiful city.”
- If you make it to the top of the Eiffel Tower, reward yourself at the “Champagne bar.”
