With the weather warming up and summer just around the corner, now seems to be the ideal time to update our customers about what Paris has to offer visitors over the coming months. Late Summer and early Autumn are a busy time for the city, with world-famous cultural and business events which attract visitors from across the globe. From the Festival of Gastronomy, to Paris Fashion Week and the Paris Motor Show, any one of these events will be a superb reason to enjoy a break in our beautiful city. For all of these events, the Hotel Herse d'Or is located in the ideal position. The Metro is just a few minutes from the hotel lobby, and you can hop from your luxury bed to the excitement of the catwalk or exhibition hall in no time at all.
Maybe it's the beauty of its architecture or the romantic atmosphere, the cultural attraction of great art, or just the stylish nature of Parisians themselves, but Paris attracts major events all year-round. However, September and October see the exhibition season in full swing, making this an ideal time to visit. Head to Porte de Versailles Metro station and spend a day exploring cutting edge car designs and savouring shows of vintage models, or get off at Tuileries where a short stroll will find you at the heart of Paris Fashion Week. If this sounds appealing, book soon for cheap room rates, and make the Hotel Herse d'Or your base from which to experience everything that exhibition season has to offer.
Enjoy a glamorous break at Paris Fashion Week
In the last week of September, Paris becomes a playground for the beautiful people, as the fashion world shows off its latest creations. See the very latest designs from fashion superstars like Dior and Vivienne Westwood in the delightful surroundings of the Tuileries Gardens. Sit in the front row and marvel at the audacity of the world's greatest designers, and tour the boutiques of the capital to find the ideal souvenir for the most glamorous vacation imaginable. With its central location right next to the Louvre, Paris Fashion Week is an unbeatable city break opportunity.
Savour the heights of taste at the Fête de la Gastronomie
Paris and food go together like, well, Paris and fashion or Paris and cars. Between 26th and 28th of September, you can head to the bistros and restaurants of the city for workshops and dazzling displays of culinary artistry. Learn how to make the perfect soufflé, and how to couple fine wines with food for the perfect dinner party. Taste products from across France, from pate to cheese, and take home gifts for all tastes to enjoy. This is the time to visit Paris for anyone who appreciates the finer things in life, and wants to explore a fascinating gastronomic heritage.
Trace the history of motoring at the Paris Motor Show
Since 1898, Paris has hosted the leading lights in the world of motoring, and no major manufacturer can afford to miss the Paris Motor Show. Head over to Porte de Versailles station between the 4th and 18th of October and spend long days marvelling at the elegance of next generation supercars. Wander around exhibits which chart the history of motoring, and learn more about how modern day firms are pushing back the boundaries of automobile performance. Discount tickets for children simply add to the appeal of a memorable event that all motoring fans will adore.
