While you are out there getting gifts for others, don’t forget to treat yourself. Social media superstar and well-traveled canine Tinkerbelle is here to help you come up with ideas.
The doggie model and self-proclaimed diva has curated a list of her favorite pet-friendly travel destinations, complete with hotel and activity recommendations, so you can start planning a getaway with your furry friend for the new year.
Audrey Hepburn once said, “Paris is always a good idea.”
Hotel: La Clef Louvre Paris
Puppy Perks: Pets of any size are welcome for an additional fee of 10 Euros per night, per pet. Whenever I returned from my daily adventures in Paris, the staff at the La Clef Louvre were there to greet me happily and eager to hear about my day, and in the morning, they greeted me with plenty of hugs and kisses. You could really tell they embraced their pet guests and treated them just like humans.
To Do: We spent our days strolling the streets and seeing the sights, and our nights enjoying sublime Parisian cuisine and watching the lights of the Eiffel Tower twinkle. The Palace of Versailles was truly impressive. I felt very loved during my time in Paris.
I was welcomed into shops, restaurants, cafés and other places usually reserved for humans. Many humans I met were happy to see me and I was offered lots of water and treats. I met many other chic Parisian pups and their humans as we explored the city.
With no roads, just canals and bridges connecting more than 100 little islands, Venice is one of Italy’s (and the world’s) most alluring destinations. Luckily, I was able to explore this historic floating city and all it had to offer a 5-lb. diva pup.
Puppy Perks: This pet-friendly luxury hotel is situated directly on the Grand Canal of Venice. Because of this, they have their own private water dock which provides extreme convenience when arriving and departing the hotel. No lugging bags through the streets and bridges of Venice, trying to find your lodging.
Upon arriving to the NH collection Venezia Palazzo Barocci, I was greeted with a warm welcome of smiling faces, hugs and kisses from the staff while my human was treated to espresso, a light snack and even a glass of prosecco! One of the employees even brought me water to drink after my long journey.
My room was a Junior Suite on the second floor with a Grand Canal View and Terrace. The room was immaculately clean with a sleek, modern vibe.
To Do: The entire city is extremely pet-friendly, and I met many local Venetian pups along the streets, in cafés, on the Vaporetto to the other islands and even in restaurants.
