App Description"Andrew Harper's Paris: A Personal Guide to the Best of the City" is an informed selection of my favorite hotels, restaurants, shops and attractions. A host of maps and photographs help make it practical as well as inspiring. Don't think of it as an all-inclusive guide book, so much as a hand-drawn map of the best of Paris.
Highlights of Andrew Harper's Paris include:
I made my reputation with candid hotel reviews, and here I profile my 14 favorite Parisian properties, from grand palace addresses to intimate Left Bank alternatives. Entries feature my personal insights on room selection, dining choices and notable hotel features. They also include links to exclusive Harper member privileges and rates.
I review 83 of my favorite restaurants, from grand haute cuisine dining rooms to friendly neighborhood bistros. Featured categories include brasseries, wine bars, modern cuisine and romantic favorites. Each entry features specific menu recommendations, as well as comprehensive service and contact details.
The shopping section features a smartly edited collection of 113 boutiques, salons and markets, all worthwhile travel destinations in their own rights. This choice selection includes fashion salons, beauty spas, art galleries, fine art studios, bookstores, and food and wine specialty stores. All shopping entries feature maps, contact details, opening hours and personal recommendations.
I offer my advice on the best way to visit the major attractions, but focuses most of his attention on the small gems of Paris: intimate museums, neighborhood gardens, walking tours and a list of his own iconic Parisian experiences. Recommended day trips and overnight excursions are also detailed, as are suggestions for visitors with children.
