Paris - Paris - Paris
Fancy a walkabout in Montmartre, together with all its charm and history. Montmartre is a magical name conjuring up images of a marvellous artist village topped by the basilica of the Sacré-Coeur, a place where so many famous painters, poets and singers have left their mark: Picasso, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Utrillo, Van Gogh...
|Wander in Le Marais, a very attractive area featuring the Place des Vosges with its harmonious architecture and many beautiful mansions dated back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Few of those very well restored shelter great museums like Picasso, Victor Hugo, Carnavalet... and many more.|
|Climb the cobble stones of the Rue Mouffetard! It has become increasingly the "done thing" to live in this area which has always been very popular and twice a day, the street is transformed in one of the capital´s most colourful outdoor fresh-food markets. The food is tantalizingly displayed, tempting the eyes and the palate!|
|Gardens, Parks and their museums|
|The Tuileries Gardens totally redesigned and decorated with gorgeous Maillol bronze sculptures is a real marvel. It is located in the very heart of Paris but it feels so peaceful: the street noises stop, as you walk in. You may then choose to visit the Musée du Jeu de Paume, a contemporary museum specialising in the photography or on to the Orangery museum dedicated to modern world-known painters and to the outstanding "Water-lilies" by Monet.|
|The Parc Monceau is a small, sophisticated English garden with the softest grass one can sit on before visiting the Musée Nissim de Camondo located nearby. This museum is hosted in a very elegant 18th Century mansion and displays an exquisite art collection. The place offers a very intimate and cosy atmosphere which makes you feel like you are visiting a friend and that the hosts are still living there!|
|The Jardin des Plantes with its tropical plants' green-house and the museum of Natural History. Along the River Seine next to the museum of Arabic art (IMA) is the open air Museum of Sculptures.
From there the view over the river and the buildings is a delight: the Ile de la Cité with the monumental towers of Notre Dame Cathedral and in the background the very special sky of Paris divinely represented by artists through the centuries.
|Food Haute Couture!|
Paris has a great amount of imaginative culinary talent on offer and thanks to this the city is constantly in a phase of reinvention, renovation, movement, and excitement.
There are very few gastronomically deprived areas in Paris; round the corner you will always find a food market, a baker's, a patisserie, a bistro, a caviste (wine merchant) or cheese seller!
|The Patisseries: the latest trend for patisseries, after Macaroons and cup-cakes, is the Chou à la Crème. The Classic cream puff has been reinvented by pastry chef Philippe Conticini in his Patisserie des Rêves. The once humble cream puff is also king at Popelini. La Durée and Pierre Hermé are still the 2 best Macaroons makers.|
|Cooking class: at Alain Ducasse's Ecole de Cuisine is a must. After preparing your dish you will taste it and adore it!||
