Shopping in Paris Two Ways
Mon 10 Feb 2014
Whether you’re about to take a romantic vacation with your lover or spend a weekend curled up on the couch with a glass of your favorite wine, we have the top ways to incorporate the best parts of the gg2p GO-Card into your schedule, including shopping in Paris even if you’re staying home!
Paris and Champagne: You and Your Beau
We’ve all heard a thousand times that Paris is the city of love, and the name is absolutely deserved. There’s no better place in the world to spend a romantic vacation, and there’s no better way to toast to your love than with the best champagne. So grab your beau and fall in love all over again—with Paris and each other—at these perfect spots, and say, “Santé!”
Spend a weekend outside Paris in the beautiful Champagne countryside. Because you’re a GO-Card holder, you’ll get 10 percent off a rental car at Auto Europe, which already boasts the lowest prices in Europe. Rent a convertible and whiz through quaint towns and gorgeous vineyards. The Château d’Etoges dates back to the 17th century and is everything you could dream of. Stay in a room for two overlooking the château’s moat, enjoy decadent candlelit dinners and boat rides around the property’s lake, and get a special deal (10 percent off) at checkout.
Head back into Paris and take a night cruise down the Seine, one of the most romantic spots in Paris, with a champagne tasting by Ô Chateau. Enjoy the luxuries of the city’s finest food and drink while taking in the sites along the Seine. Stay at the romantic yet imaginative Hotel Seven, conveniently located in the 5th Arrondissement. The theme throughout the hotel is “dream,” and with levitation beds in every room and suite, you’re in for a real treat when you stay here.
Take a warm-weather stroll through the Jardin des Plantes, lined with tropical flowers and plants, then head to Arlaux. The famous champagne company recently opened its first shop, and it’s the only place to have a flight of the tasty bubbly. Pop the bubbly and enjoy learning about the champagne you taste!
