Gutsy Women Travel...

Their female-friendly tip

Take a cooking class...
If you are going to visit Paris — or any other destination known for its food and wine — you should definitely take a cooking class. Go online and search for "cooking class in Paris" and there are a wide variety of alternatives. It is a great opportunity to learn about the French style of cooking and to gather some recipes that you can bring home and practice on friends and family. This is the best keepsake when traveling abroad! And since France is so renowned for its wines, ladies visiting Paris should also try to find a wine tasting class where they can learn about wines, champagne, etc. For more information on Gutsy Women Travel, visit www.gutsywomentravel.com, call 1-866-IM-GUTSY, or email info@gutsywomentravel.com.

Music and Markets Tours...

Their female-friendly tip

Antiques in Languedoc and a hotel in Paris...
Got some room in your suitcase for a few antiques? Check out the charming town of Pezenas, in the Languedoc (southeast of Montpellier). There are a multitude of intriguing antique shops on the south side of town, with prices MUCH more reasonable than you'll find in well-known Isle sur la Sorgue, or Paris. The town is well worth a visit too, with beautiful Renaissance architecture and enticing arty boutiques.

Looking for an inexpensive and comfortable spot in Paris? The terrifically well located Hotel Andrea Rivoli is walking distance from the RER to the airports, close to Pompidou Center, Hotel de Ville, and Marais, plus it overlooks a quiet little street beside Rue de Rivoli. The staff are welcoming and friendly, and a single air conditioned room with private bath is a mere 76 euro!

Slow Travel For Women...

Their female-friendly tip

The Champagne region of France...
The Champagne region of France, in particular the charming village of Epernay, is mostly famous for the champagne cellars of Moet & Chandon, among others, where you can learn all about the “methode champenoise”. This is the most famous champagne house, makers of Dom Perignon – enjoyed by many American historical figures such as Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. Tours of the cellar are organized where you can enjoy a taste of their famous “Brut Imperial”. And there's no finer way to enjoy the Epernay region, than to spend a night or two at the charming and elegant L’Hostellerie La Briqueterie where you will be pampered in their champagne spa. The cuisine is a senses’ celebration where the chef and his team will be happy to please all your expectations. Visit Chateau de Chantilly and enjoy the beauties of its great park, be sure to have lunch at the famous Le Hammeau Restaurant where “Créme Chantilly” was invented.

Did you know?

The 119-year old Eiffel Tower is 1,063 feet high, Including the 79 foot TV antenna atop its roof. That's about 80+ stories tall. No wonder TV reception is so good in Paris.

It takes tons of paint to keep the tower free of rust. In order to maintain a uniform appearance to an observer on the ground, three separate colors of paint are used, with the darkest on the bottom and the lightest at the top. Reminds the viewer of Disney's Cinderella castles with their smaller than life size windows higher up to create the illusion of height.
