Never satisfied with secondhand reviews, this Paris native makes a point of personally vetting all her recommendations, from little-known auberges and shops to countryside festivals and markets. Only after she gives a place an “A” rating (as she did most recently to the reopened Picasso Museum in Paris and Marseilles’ new Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations) is it worthy of one of her tailor-made itineraries.

Discovery: La Boutique à Chapeaux, a millinery on Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière in Paris, where designer Virginie de Broc blocks and sews all the hats by hand, whether they’re wool-lined for winter or organza- and feather-topped for special occasions.

Specialties: France, Italy
