Paris Travel Guide

Boutique Pretty Box was founded in 2004 when owner Sarah wanted to sell the vintage wardrobe she had amassed during years of world travel.

The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art comprises 12,000 square feet of exhibition space designed by Jean Nouvel.

Vintage Roads is a car-for-hire service with a fleet of classic restored Traction Avant Citroën vehicles. These large touring cars from the 1930s-50s have almost mythic status among the world’s car elite, so renting a Traction Avant at reasonable prices is quite the travel-in-style prize.

Context Travel puts a new spin on the classic walking tour by marshaling a network of English-speaking art historians, writers, architects, and other specialists to open up, both literally and figuratively, unique aspects of the city.

For vintage threads, this boutique situated among the gardens of the Palais Royal attracts a well-heeled clientele.

Founded by Patrick Melloul, Biondini sells a collection of super pricy, and unique, shoes. The largest designer shoe retailer in the city, the company offers cutting-edge designs in men's and women's shoes at three revamped and minimalist boutiques on the Champs Elysee.

Roger Vivier (the man who invited stilettos) was a legendary French shoe designer with a fashion house that still bears his name. Vivier’s flagship boutique on the 1ère arrondissement’s Rue Faubourg St.-Honoré has a simple exterior with glass doors and a large silver buckle door handle.
