After climbing hundreds of steps you’re starving, but all is well: you have reservations at one of the many unbelievable restaurants that call this city home. Le Cinq has multiple Michelin stars, and dining there isn’t just a falvour sensation, but an experience that titilates almost every part of you. After sampling the tasting menu, all using fresh, local ingredients (complete with perfect wine pairings), you’re ready to check out some more of the famous sights.
The first thing you do is head to the famous Louvre, where you can see some truly exceptional artworks like Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa – although that’s just one of many brilliant pieces. After wandering around for a couple of hours and taking it all in, you make the short stroll to Notre Dame and admire the epic cathedral, before going for a gorgeous sunset walk in Jardins de Luxembourg.

Before you know it, it’s dinner time, and you’re headed to Manko.

Just before midnight you hit Cova Club, and a few hours there proves something you already knew: Parisians know how to party. The music varies between hip hop, club classics, and electronic hits, but the crowd remains incredible throughout, as does the energy – but when you need a moment, you can always retreat to the private table you booked via our nightlife concierge service. Before you can say un peux plus dance, it’s almost daylight, and you’re back to your luxurious hotel room for a deep sleep.

Paris has so much to offer that leaving it might feel like a mistake, but you take a morning trip to the Palace of Versailles anyway, and the famous spot doesn’t disappoint.

Exclusive, classy, and incredibly fun, the vibe here is like nothing else in the city, and the second you walk in it’s like you’ve entered a hedonistic heaven. You dance the night away, occasionally heading back to the VIP table that you booked via our nightlife concierge service so that you can indulge in some champagne and relax a little. Sadly the night has to end, and even though it’s your last evening in the French capital, the experience has been so perfect you fall asleep with a smile on your face.
