PARIS LIKE A BOURBON
The City of Light has never been a hub of youth hostels and greasy spoons, but if you aren't afraid of really making use of the AmEx Black, consider the itinerary being marketed by travel newsletter guru Andrew Harper. For $300,000 (or $1,800 an hour; we did the math), you get one week in Paris, and what a week it is: private jet to get you there, a suite at the Ritz (pictured) that would make Marie Antoinette bust a corset, private tours, a chauffeur, 24-hour-a-day concierge service provided by Andrew Harper (well, one of his people, at least), and dinner reservations at the swankiest of joints, like Alain Ducasse and Voltaire (just the reservation, mind you—actually eating dinner will cost extra). Each day has its own theme: a Fashion Day with a couture fitting at Chanel, an Art Day with a private tour of the Louvre or the Musée d'Orsay, a Fragrance and Jewels Day that includes meeting a French custom perfume designer.… Since the week will set you back the cost of a college education, may we also suggest a Hire a New Accountant Day?
