Bonjour!

I'm Anne! I founded Prêt à Voyager (translation: ready to travel) in 2007 to explore the intersection of travel + design. Navigate Paris highlights my best Paris offerings to help you explore the city in creative ways.

Paris Design Tour

Paris Design Tour

Whether you're a designer or just have a love of good design, this experience is for you. See Paris through the eyes of a graphic designer in a way that celebrates independent and French designers.

We'll kick off the tour at Merci, the famous concept shop known for the red Fiat in the courtyard, and that has a regularly changing installation. We'll visit some great shops in the haut Marais, unique specialty stores, secret passages and more. Depending on your own interests we may detour to see some different stops. If you fancy a coffee, we'll take a break to chat design in a local café. We'll likely pass some street art en route as well. As we walk and talk I'll be sure to give you recommendations on how to continue your design exploration on your own.

My tours are adaptable to your interests and designed to feel like you're hanging out with an old friend, not on some generic tour. The Paris Design Tour can be flexible and tweaked according to your interests: illustration, paper, interiors, fashion, books, food design, etc.
