  • Near the Louvre is the best area to stay in Paris to visit the Mona Lisa!
    Louvre
    The Louvre has the Mona Lisa, Place Vendôme, The Ritz and Palais Royal with its
    columned arcades and neat, lime tree lined allées.

 

Place Concorde, Tuileries Gardens, Musée de l'Orangerie, BHV, rue de Rivoli, Place Vendôme, The Ritz, rue Saint-Honoré, Angelina, Palais Royal

Could there be more to this central Paris epitome of stunning urban architecture and landscaping? You bet there is – Place Concorde, The Tuileries Gardens, Musée de l’Orangerie, Palais Royal … and if you must shop, the high end boutiques of rue Saint-Honoré and the mass market stores of rue de Rivoli (including BHV, the department store that sells everything) are on your doorstep.

But you can’t put a price on going for a walk under the arcades and along the sidewalks of this cultured and prosperous enclave with the Louvre as its anchor and Place Vendôme and The Ritz Paris at its core. That’s because it’s free as is the window shopping. The French call it “se balader”. Try it next time you're on rue de Rivoli and stop for a hot chocolate with the Parisian tea set at Angelina.

A perfect launch pad for exploring the heart of Paris…

… It was always a joy coming back after a day of walking the magical side streets with a meal from the traiteur on St. Antoine or breakfast croissant from Gosselin. Fifty metres from one of the busiest intersections in Paris...we hardly heard a sound.

Splendid Palais Royal

Very convenient to my conference and my son-in-law running the Paris marathon…

… and all the other things we needed to do in Paris. Also we found it very close to the Metro with the nearest station being the Tuileries.
