(Tasty : Girls Getaway in Paris)
Girls love tasty treats. We love to drink, eat and most importantly appreciate. Below is the list of places to visit in Paris if you are in for some tasty girls getaway.
* Coffee Tasting
Before we kick of girls getaway in Paris, how about a cup (or more) of coffee? We are not talking about Starbucks here. Brûlerie de Belleville was founded by three young Parisian entrepreneurs who are passionate about coffee and wanted to create their own brand. It carries coffee beans from all around the world after these Parisians selected carefully while traveling the world. Also, every Saturday, you can make your girls getaway classy by attending an hour-long coffee ‘dégustation’ (tasting). It costs 20 euros including a bag of fresh coffee beans.
* L’Etoile d’Or (only the best candy shop in Paris)
Girls need chocolates and candies. No matter how hard we try to resist, we just can’t resist a good box of chocolates and a bag full of fun candies. L’Etoile d’Or is owned and run by Denise Acabo, a Parisian chocolate enthusiast like all of us but with much more expertise. Walking into her shop would feel like how it would be like walking into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory but sweeter. The shop was closed for a while because of a gas explosion in the basement of the building but now it is reopened and ready for sweet treats for your girls getaway.
* Vineyard in Paris
Yes, there is vineyard in Paris. The one and only remaining and working Parisian vineyard is Clos Montmartre. Wine produced from Clos Montmartre can’t be found in shops or restaurants because they are only sold through charity auction every year. The vineyard is closed to the public except during la Fête des Jardins in fall. So if you are having girls getaway in Paris during fall, you are in luck! But if you do want to taste some of the best french wine and cheese led by dear Parisian, you can let us know and we will take care of everything.
* Rosa Kiwi
It is not easy to find a good frozen yogurt in Paris. There are not many frozen yogurt shops in Paris to begin with and even you find one by luck, it doesn’t taste like what you have been craving for. But there is Rosa Kiwi, a frozen yogurt that you have been dreaming about AND zero-fat. Need we say more?

Paris is one of the cities in the world with longest history of fashion. A lot of famous designers are from Paris and what Parisians wear and adore certainly became part of the trend. Musée Galliera is the perfect girls getaway’s destination if you are into fashion and its history. It carries more than 90,000 couture from different centuries including some of the pieces worn by Marie Antoinette and the famous Givenchy black dress worn by Audrey Hepburn.

* Detaille Perfumery
Let us begin with a little story to make girls getaway more interesting. The Countess de Presle is one of the first person to own the car in the 20th century. She felt the skin dehydration while driving a car in high speed. So she and her chemist friend created a hydrating lotion just for driving and this marked the crucial point in the history of high quality products used for body. And this perfumery was named after Countess’ husband, Detaille in 1905. It carries history, perfume with quality and the beautiful perfume bottle that you can’t resist from having your own!
(Zen girls getaway in Paris)
We all travel differently. Some look for more exciting and loud places and some prefer relaxing and quiet places. Here are places to visit in Paris if you are hoping to get some Zen during your girls getaway.
How about a relaxing afternoon at Hammam (steam room) with your dear friends, sisters or mother? Les Bains de Saadia, located in 19th arrondissement provides one of the most relaxing Moroccan Hammam experience that you can enjoy during girls getaway in Paris. It is a rather small place so it is a little challenging to get reservation but once you do, you will realize the waiting time was all worth it.
* Yoga class
You may think that yoga classes are offered for those who purchase membership for one month or more. But Affordable Yoga and Fitness allows you to attend even for one class while you are having girls getaway in Paris for a short period of time. Or even a pass of 5 classes. The price is as low as 6 euros for yoga classes! Sometimes when it’s a sunny day, you can even have a class outdoor at Jardins des Tuileries or Parc Monceau in Parisian style.
* Drawing Tour
Sure, Hammam and yoga calm the soul but we also suggest some drawing for a piece of Zen. Marais and the Latin Quarter are not all about shopping but also one of the most beautiful architectural remains from the past. Don’t worry if you are not a born painter because Widetrip will teach you how to sketch.
