The world capital of Fashion, Art and FoodDiscover everything the city of lights has to offer
The French capital is one of the most recognisable cities in with world, with the iconic Eiffel Tower standing high above the Champs de Mars, the Seine winding its way under bridges that twinkle with lanterns at night and the Arc de Triomphe standing majestically at the top of the Champs D’Élysées. This city has both ancient and modern attractions to keep visitors transfixed time and time again, and we have a range of stylish hotels - from vintage boutique to modern chic - that will provide comfort in luxurious surroundings during your stay.
Paris is a dream come true for the architecture lover and you could spend days marvelling at the buildings and monuments from just the outside. The Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Musée d’Orsay, Louvre and Basilique Du Sacré-Coeur are all stunning works of art in their own right, but step inside the latter and 19 tonne bell towers, panoramic views and spiral staircases await. The Musée d’Orsay has the nation’s collection of world renowned artwork spanning decades, the Louvre contains uncountable masterpieces, and at the Arc de Triomphe you can take a moment’s reflection at the Tomb of an Unknown Soldier, where an eternal flame burns in memory of the fallen soldiers of France.
A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without indulging in the shopping experience and visiting some of the big designer name stores that attract fashion lovers from all over the world. Wander up the Champs-Élysées to browse the clothes, perfume and jewellery shops while taking time out to sip a real French coffee at one of the many cafes along the iconic street. If you find yourself still drawn in after a day’s shopping, take in a meal then a show at one of the theatres, or simply soak up the Parisian evening atmosphere while you watch the passers-by.
The food of France
If food is your passion, Paris will not disappoint. From small patisseries and bistros tucked away up balcony lined streets with waiters who are happy to let you linger, to Michelin-starred restaurants offering exquisite dining experiences, the French have always known how to do cuisine well. For a change from eating out, pack a picnic and head to the Champs de Mars at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, or take a breath in the Jardin du Luxembourg, an inner city oasis of calm and tranquillity where you can wander among apple orchards and chestnut groves, or simply relax by the ponds. If you want to slow the pace but still see the sights, a boat trip on the Seine is a beautiful way to see the city from another angle, either by day or night.
Paris simply has an enormous array of must-see places and must-do events. One trip never feels enough in this romantic, yet vibrant city and you could do something different every time you visit. To enjoy all the ‘city of love’ has to over, our team at Azure would be delighted to help you plan your trip and guide you through our beautiful selection of hotels, which will make your holiday perfect.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
