Before you Say “À Bientôt” to Paris
Don’t say “à bientôt” to Paris just yet. There are still places to see, things to do and experiences to be indulged in! From up close and personal discoveries of vibrant Montmartre to strolling around in parks and gardens and enjoying meals at unusual locations to feeling filmy with a movie trail in Paris!
A Bohemian Rhapsody in Montmartre
Known as the “Artists Village”, Montmartre invites you to discover its Bohemian vibe. On a casual stroll along the busy Place du Tertre, don’t be surprised if you come across an artist deeply involved in a sketch or a musician rendering a soulful symphony. Its major highlight is the majestic Basilica de Sacre Coeur that offers a panoramic view of Parisian rooftops. Paris’ only vineyard lies nestled in Clos Montmartre and offers 27 varieties of wine to taste and to take back!
Artistic Encounters at the Musee Jacquemart Andre
Art aficionados find many reasons to visit the Musee Jacquemart Andre, home of art collector Edouard Andre and his wife Nelly. Their exquisite mansion houses a formidable collection of detached frescoes, rare works of art and elegant furniture and tapestry. A tour around their private apartments, their elegant winter garden and the first floor devoted to the Renaissance period make for an enriching cultural experience!
Take A Walk in Paris
Relax, rejuvenate and take a green break in the capital! Take a leisurely ramble in the Bois de Boulogne that offers its visitors opportunities to cycle or boat ride or enjoy a picnic the Parisian way! Stop by at the Fondation Louis Vuitton that is close by for a cultural encounter. Marvel at the landscaped gardens at Les Jardins desTuileries that lead you to the Louvre from the Place de la Concorde. The Parc des Buttes Chaumont has all the trappings of a romantic venue. Cliffs, grottos, waterfalls and a lake make for an outing perfect for 2!
Lights, Camera and Action!
Take on a specially created movie trail with a guide showing you around venues, monuments and districts made famous in movies. Recreate your own Da Vinci Code trail or follow Andy’s pursuits across Paris in the Devil Wears Prada or walk in the footsteps of Jesse and Celine’s refreshingly different love story across Paris in Before Sunset. Don’t forget to say bonjour to Montmartre made famous in the French comedy Amelie!
