Exclusive | Women's Travel: Europe Part Four


La Friday Night Fever, for information in English email
A unique athletic experience and different perspective of the City of Lights, as 15,000 in-line skaters glide through the city streets late each Friday night during the world's largest skating event, conducted by PariRoller. Skaters begin to gather at the Gare Montparnasse at 9 p.m. and set sail an hour later for the three-hour, 16-mile tour on blades. Afterward, many reconvene over drinks.

Pierre Herme (72 rue Bonaparte) The Picasso of Pastry has set up shop in St-Germain-des-Pres, with delectable temptations such as pistachio mille-feuille and lichi cream macaroons awaiting you. For those still in need of sweet things, nearby there is a fruit tart extravaganza available at Patisserie Gerard Mulot (76 reu de la Seine) and mouthwatering truffles at chocolatier Pierre Marcolini (8 rue de l'Abbaye).

Les Mots ? la Bouche (6 rue Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie, 4e; +33-1-42-78-88-30)
Similar to the "Different Light" chain in the U.S., Les Mots stocks a wide selection of gay books.

The Grande Mosqu?e de Paris (2 bis place de puits de l'Ermite, across from the Jardin des Plantes; +33-1-45-35-97-33)
The Grande Mosqu?e has a Hammam open to women every day except men's days Sundays, Thursdays and Tuesdays. Treatments start at EUR38. You also may spend as much time as you wish in the progressively hotter steam rooms in the hammam.

Les Bains Du Marais (31-33 rue des Blancs Manteaux; +33-1-44-61-02-02; 35EUR hammam, massages from 35 EUR) In the gay marais, this chic hammam and spa has women only sessions Mondays (11am-8pm), Tuesdays (11am-11pm) and Wednesdays (11am-7pm). There is also a sleek restaurant on site for those who get hungry from all the pampering.
