Four Seasons Paris | within walking distance

Four Seasons George V has an enviable location if you're going to Paris to shop and eat. The hotel recently published a magazine article that details some of the luxury shopping, eating, and art museums within easy walking distance of the hotel.

Here are some of their suggestions:

Avenue Montaigne. Walk down this one shopping street leading from the Champs-Elysees toward the Seine to find Chanel, Marni, Gucci, Céline, Jil Snader, Saint Laurent, Fendi, Chloé, Ralph Lauren, Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Armani, and Prada.

Framboise, 7 rue de Ponthieu, is a crêpe stand. The jambon fromage is recommended.

Ladurée, 75 Champs-Elysees, for tea, coffee, and their famed macarons in 20 different flavors, including salted butter caramel.

Hermès, 42 avenue George V, the more intimate of the two Hermès stores in Paris. Come here for an easier shopping experience

Petit Palais, avenue Winston Churchill, built for the 1900 World's Fair, has an art collection including works by Monet, Pissaro, Cézanne, and Rodin. Free and open every day!

La Maison de la Truffe, 14 rue Marbeuf, all truffles, all the time. The foie gras with truffle soup is recommended and said to be "easily packable and ready to make the journey home."

Artcurial, 7 Rond-Point des Champs-Elysees, is an auction house with collections on view before they are auctioned off.
