Special Report: What Exxon knew about the Earth's melting Arctic

Readers Recommend: A wonderful stay at the Hotel d'Angleterre in Paris

We flew into Paris for a few days before the start of our trip and stayed at the Hotel d'Angleterre in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area. This 26-room boutique hotel, which once housed the British Embassy, was fantastic. It's in an ideal location, but quiet with a private courtyard.

Hotel d'Angleterre, 44 Rue Jacob, Paris; 011-33-1-42-60-34-72, Doubles from $331.
