Idyllic scenery in the heart of Paris – Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero
Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadéro
The Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadéro is resolutely integrated into the local environment, perfectly “in the city”. Overlooking the capital from the hotel and its famous green wall, the proposed 5 km course offers a real change of scenery in an unexpected Paris. Head for the hills of Passy and rue Berton, a rural district of the city, immersing yourself in the Paris of yesteryear just a few hundred meters away. The route continues, linking the boulevard Beauséjour to the old small loop and the railway line that encircle Paris, today transformed into a nature trail and a real green corridor with surprising biodiversity. Back to the Trocadero, a few steps further, an address known only to the initiated: the annex of the Guimet Museum and the gardens of the Buddhist Pantheon, to find oneself alone in the middle of a space of 450 square meters (the most common), it feels like a piece of the world between giant bamboos, bonsai trees and Japanese maples, all in rhythm to the gentle lapping of the water.

From the famous Phantom of the Opera to the latest Paris Emily – whose iconic architecture made it one of the hot spots of the series, the actress even imitated Audrey Hepburn’s hilarious face – Opera Garnier inspires directors. The first public movie screening is also nearby, rue Edouard VII. We follow Emily’s footsteps from 16 boulevard des Capucines to the two hidden alleys that make Paris so charming. We followed the passage behind the statue of Edouard VII to explore the Place de l’Opéra. The more experienced can continue along the Seine to the Bir Hakeim bridge and part of the elevated metro that has been used as a set for many movies, including Inception. It is a loop of about 8 kilometers, or 45 minutes of “SightJogging”. Whether you’re traveling for business or rediscovering the City of Light for a break, the Hilton Paris Opera Hotel combines history and Parisian chic. The Parisian golden age is omnipresent here, especially in the center of its impressive Grand Salon, adorned with frescoes and Corinthian colonnades and imposing period balustrades.

“In the City” in Tours, at your own pace (3 km to 7 km), combines the narrow streets of the city center with immediate access to nature, from gardens to islands to the last European wild riverside. Let yourself be inspired by an exploration of the alleys and squares – the Vieux-Tours is almost a pedestrian street. You’ll be immersed in the many influences that converge here, from the old buildings of the Saint-Gétiens district, to the quiet mansions near Saint-Julien, to the timber-framed houses of the Saint-Martin district. From the Hilton Garden Inn Tours, you can walk across the Loire River along the popular Simon Island to the Parc de la Perraudière, the former property of the Archbishop of Tours, overlooking the river. The modern setting of Garden Inn Tours offers a place to unwind. We discovered Babette Restaurant, which favors healthy and local cuisine, and an eco-responsible concept store.

We walk in the footsteps of Auguste Perret, who redesigned the city’s skyline, passing by his architect’s St. Joseph’s Church, a lighthouse adorned with thousands of stained glass windows formed in a beam of light, a majestic white mountain rises from the street corner. The Volcan is a theater of unexpected design, the work of Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. Head up to Perret and the Avenue Foch that leads to the sea, where hundreds of beach cabins stand side by side – the Hilton Garden Inn Le Havre Centre is the only hotel in the city with a sea view – or dive into Les Bains des Docks, whose latest pool was designed by Jean Nouvel in the city. During your stay, you can enjoy the fitness area and the cuisine of the Babette restaurant.

As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
