Take an iconic journey through one of the world’s capitals of gastronomy
InterContinental Icons aims to capture the true essence of some of the world’s most-visited cities, enabling travellers to discover the authentic and unique experiences in the city.
Following a public vote and deliberations by an expert judging panel, the new #interContinentalicons for London, New York, Dubai, Sydney, Shanghai, Paris and Mexico City have served as inspiration for one-of-a-kind experiences crafted for travellers and locals.
InterContinental Paris – Le Grand will highlight the InterContinental ICons in Paris through an experience that allows you to Eat Like a Parisian
