Magical way to begin your new life together. Try the Hotel du Jeu de Paume, 54 rue Saint-Louis en L'Ile, 01-43-26-14-18, the only 4* on the island, though the Deux-Iles and Lutece (both 3*) are very highly regarded. Avoid the Hotel Saint-Louis, famous for disregarding reservations. Dine at L'Orangerie, on the same street. Superb. Walk south across the Pont de la Tournelle to 15 Quai de la Tournelle, the Tour d'Argent restaurant, over 400 hundred years old, a Michelin 2* with the best views and wine cave in Paris. Superb squared. Book as early as the hotel will take your reservations.

What a wonderful honeymoon destination! I would advise against trying to go to London, too -- I think you'll find plenty to do in Paris. Plus, you could take a couple of day trips -- perhaps to the champagne country, which is wonderful. My husband and I were in Paris for six days last year and are returning for four more this year because there was so much we didn't get to see or experience. I have a feeling that Paris is a place that you could visit again and again without growing tired of it. I would recommend seeing a concert at St. Chappelle, climbing to the top of Notre Dame, buying a museum pass, and strolling the streets of Paris. Buy wine, cheese, and bread from the different street markets and enjoy picnics in the late afternoon.

I think it would be best to stay in France for your entire trip. If you want to leave Paris, take a short trip to Normandy, the Loire or Bourgogne. Also, London is quite a bit more expensive than France (and in my opinion not nearly as magical for a honeymoon!). Congratulations! Don't forget to have a hot chocolate at Angelina next to the Louvre.
