As a frequent business traveler to Europe; particularly to Paris several times per year, I am always so booked with meetings that I never have any time to sightsee. Determined to be able to enjoy the Parisian lifestyle, in the future, my boss agreed that I can take a flight a couple of days before and/or if it falls on a weekend, I can stay a couple of days later.
Still with limited time, a trip planner/itinerary is a must. There’s a site called Travel With Carnet that has articles geared towards business travelers with comprehensive reviews on dining, cultural locations, hotels, salons, barber shops, spas – everything you need to know to plan your itinerary, for example:
Musee Jacquemart-Andre- an excellent museum inside one of the most luxurious mansions in Paris and easily explored in one or two hours.
Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome- business travel friendly and in a great neighborhood to explore at the end of your day.
L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon- a great restaurant to dine at the bar, offering innovative food served tapas style.
