Paris, Paris, Paris- bucket list and "must do"

The Timeless Elegance and Charm of the City of Light.

Ah, Paris—the city where elegance meets enchantment, and every street tells a tale of romance and history.

Imagine a place where the air is filled with the sweet aroma of freshly baked croissants and the chatter of charming cafés. That’s Paris, a timeless masterpiece.E

picenter of Art and Culture: Paris is synonymous with art, culture, and history. From the awe-inspiring Louvre and the majestic Musée d'Orsay to the avant-garde Centre Pompidou, the city is a treasure trove of world-class museums and galleries. Wander through the cobblestone streets, and you’ll find yourself following the footsteps of literary greats and artists who have called Paris home.

Architectural Marvels: The City of Light dazzles with its architectural splendor. The Gothic grandeur of Notre-Dame Cathedral, the opulent Palace of Versailles, and the ultra-modern La Défense district showcase the city’s diverse architectural heritage. And, of course, standing proud at the heart of Paris, the iconic Eiffel Tower—a symbol of love and a beacon that draws millions from around the globe.

The Charm of Montmartre: Head to Montmartre, my personal favorite, where bohemian spirit and artistic flair converge. Perched on a hill, this district offers breathtaking views of Paris. Explore the narrow streets, visit the charming Sacré-Cœur Basilica, and perhaps take a moment to sip a café au lait in one of the quaint bistros. This area, once home to Picasso and Van Gogh, continues to be a haven for artists and dreamers.Culinary Delights:

Paris is a gastronomic paradise. From Michelin-starred restaurants to cozy patisseries, the city tempts with delectable treats. Indulge in flaky croissants, delicate macarons, and rich French wines. And let's not forget cheese—whether at a lively market or an elegant fromagerie, Paris offers a feast for the senses.

Hidden Courtyards and Passages: Beyond the bustling boulevards lie Paris’s hidden gems. Discover secret courtyards and covered passages that transport you back in time. These enchanting spaces, often overlooked by the hurried traveler, offer a serene escape filled with quaint shops and antique arcades.

Client Storytime: One of my most unforgettable bookings was for a couple celebrating their 25th anniversary. They wanted an intimate and extraordinary experience. I arranged a private Seine River cruise with dinner, offering unparalleled views of illuminated landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame. They stayed in a boutique hotel in Le Marais, a district steeped in history and bustling with life. Their itinerary included a cooking class at Le Cordon Bleu, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Opéra Garnier, and a day trip to the charming town of Giverny, where Monet's gardens bloom in vibrant colors.

Enchant Your Senses in Paris: Paris awaits with its timeless charm and elegant allure.

She was right!
Hali helped me book an incredible trip on the Amalfi coast a few years ago and it was the best tour I took in the month I was in Europe! She asked only a few really well thought out questions and then was able to suggest a multitude of tours right off the top of her head. It was very impressive. She even responded to a question I had late one night while I was in London, which she didn't have to do, but was very much appreciated! Thank you again, Hali!!

Hali designed the perfect trip to Italy!
Hali planned our vacation to Italy in the summer of 2023. We spent one week in Elba island and one week in Florence. The two places she found for us to stay were spectacular. The house in Elba was right on the ocean with the best view and best pool I have ever swam in. The place in Florence was also perfect. She planned a perfect mix of city activities and wine country for us. We visited the David at night and that was perfect. And she found us a rooftop bar to watch the sunset in Florence, very romantic. I highly recommend her, you will not regret it.
