3 night holiday by First Class rail staying at the stylish Hotel Mayfair (4 star) from £549 per person (based on 2 people travelling together).
Whether you are enticed here by the romance of the Île St. Louis, the grandeur of the Louvre, the vibrancy of the Champs Elysées, the more bohemian Quartier Latin, the audacious modernity ofthe Centre Pompidou or the imposing and unique Eiffel Tower, Paris will beguile you with its gallic charm.
Our carefully selected hotel is perfectly located right on the super-chic Rue de Rivoli and opposite the Jardin des Tuileries. The Hotel Mayfair (4 star) boasts an excellent reputation for quality and service, and is the ideal base for your Paris city break, giving easy access to the Louvre, the river Seine, Left Bank and Arc de Triomphe. In fact since Paris is such a compact city you will find yourself at the heart of it all, from the finest gastronomic restaurants, welcoming, traditional brasseries and smart cafés that spill invitingly onto the streets. Experience the marvellous views from the Sacré-Coeur, the poignancy and quirkiness of Notre Dame and the Père-Lachaise cemetery, and the lesser known charm of the Marais near the Bastille.
Paris is one of those fabulous cities that reveal a different aspect at every turn, leaving the visitor with wonderful memories and an overwhelming desire to return time after time.
Day 1 – London to Paris
Your short break begins at stunningly restored St. Pancras International station. Let the holiday mood take over as you board the Eurostar service for the high-speed journey to Paris in little over 2 hours. Sit back and relax in your spacious Standard Premier Class seat and make the most of the light meal and drinks.
On arrival in Paris a private transfer will take you to your hotel for the next 3 nights, the stylish Hotel Mayfair (4 star), ideally located close to the Louvre in the heart of Paris. Take a stroll from your hotel and find yourself on the pulsating Champs Elysées, among the chic boutiques of the rue de Rivoli or amidst the tranquillity of the Jardin des Tuileries. This evening choose from the myriad of wonderful gastronomic restaurants or a cosy bistro for dinner.
Days 2 and 3 – Incomparable Paris
Take some time to plan your days over a leisurely breakfast to ensure you make the most of this magnificent city. You may decide to explore Paris on foot and wend your way along the river Seine past Notre Dame, the charming Île St. Louis and onto the Rive Gauche.
Perhaps soak up some culture with a visit to the treasures of the marvellous Louvre, including the Mona Lisa, feast on the impressionist spectacle at the Musée d’Orsay or revel in the inimitable Centre Pompidou. Alternatively seek out the quieter streets of the Marais or head for the city’s elegant stores and colourful markets. In the evenings you may prefer the welcome of one of Paris’ traditional, evocative brasseries for dinner.
Day 4 – Free time in Paris and homeward bound
After breakfast why not take a trip up the Eiffel Tower or along the river Seine aboard one of the Bâteaux Mouches (payable locally), alternatively wander among the classy streets and stylish shops of Paris’ 1st arrondissement.
Your private transfer to the Gare du Nord heralds the start of your journey home and time to bid au revoir to France’s capital city. Here you join the Eurostar service and head for home. Take time to reflect on the magnificent sights, sounds and tastes you have enjoyed on your short break to Paris, as you sit back and relax with a light meal and drinks before your arrival into London St Pancras.
