Walking distance from the hotel…   A little further…   Outside Paris…


Its cross-disciplinary and international program attests to the profusion of contemporary art : open to everyone, the Palais de Tokyo is an experimental and innovatory site that offers a new way of experiencing art – in the closest proximity possible to the artists. The shop, done up to look like a petrol station in Stockholm suburb, sells a quirky selection of limited-edition objects.


Renowned for its temporary exhibitions, the Museum of Modern Art also displays the pure tones of the fauvists and the deconstructed shapes of the cubists. It features all the trends in non-figurative art , from the Ecole de Paris, Modigliani and Soutine, to photos by Brassaï. It also covers the 1950s and the following decades, honors great contemporary figures and supports the most outstanding trends in new design.


In 1671, Louis XIV decided to build « a royal hostel that would be large and spacious enough to house all officers, crippled, old and retired alike”. The pensioners began arriving in 1674.
The Eglise Saint-Louis – or soldiers church – and the Eglise du Dôme (transformed into a military Pantheon) were built afterwards. The magnificent ensemble, with its wonderful green lawn, today houses canons with rather disturbing names such as “The Scourge”, the Ministry of Defense and the Musée de l’Ordre de la Liberation, Musée des Plans et Reliefs and Musée de l’Armée. The Musée de l’Armée houses the tomb of Napoleon, the department of arms and ancient armory and that of the two world wars.


The displays at this museum devoted to the arts and civilizations of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas range from the Aboriginal shields and shaman’s costumes to ivory figurines and African musical instruments. The museum presents permanent collections, exhibitions, an open university and a program of shows, lectures and workshops that make it a unique place for dialogue between cultures.


From the 50-metres high terrace on top of the Arc de Triomphe, you’re invited to admire each of the twelve avenues that stem from the monument, most of which bear the name of a famous battle fought by Napoleon, such as Friedland and Wagram. Paris is literally at your feet as you look out over the capital’s historic avenue with, on the one side, the Champs-Elysées, the place de la Concorde, the Tuileries Garden, and the Louvre and, on the other, the Arche de la Défense.


Built on the orders of Napoleon III and inaugurated towards the end of the 19th century, the Palais Garnier was named after its architect, Charles Garnier... An architectural masterpiece with a wide selection of lavish sculptures and paintings, the Palais Garnier plays a dual role as a theatre and museum. Best known for the plethora of ballets, operas and symphony concerts it hosts on a regular basis, the Palais Garnier also has a library and museum detailing the history of opera over three centuries.
This section includes a permanent collection of paintings, drawings and scale models of opera decors as well as temporary themed exhibitions.
Not to be missed : the famous ceiling of the Opera Room by Chagall.


After having climbed 402 steps, see the superb view over the spire, the flying buttresses, the City and Paris. Discover the famous "Emmanuel" bell located in the South Tower (13 tonnes). Visits based on the novel by Victor Hugo, "Notre-Dame de Paris".


Crowning the Butte Montmartre, this church was built from 1875 onwards as an act of penance after France was defeated by the Prussians in 1870. Built in a Romano-Byzantine style, the building was consecrated in 1919 and given the name “basilica,” thereby making it a shrine. Before entering the Sacré-Cœur, enjoy the unrestricted view of Paris from the square in front of the basilica. Even better, go up to the dome gallery, which offers a spectacular view extending over a 50-km radius! Among the noteworthy elements of the basilica are the 18,835 kg “Savoyarde” bell, three metres in diameter - the biggest church bell in France. The mosaic ceiling in the apse and the big church organs are other impressive features of the interior.


Formerly the residence of the Kings of France, the Louvre is one of the French capital’s most renowned sites. With its rich past and collections, it is one of the world’s greatest museums. The best known of the Louvre’s extensive art collection is undoubtedly its most oft-visited and famous painting, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, located in the Renaissance Italian Paintings section.
The Winged Victory of Samothrace, the celebrated headless statue with outspread wings, and the Venus de Milo are two of the most frequently viewed Greek statues, while the Seated Scribe is one of the most emblematic pieces in the Egyptian Antiquities section.


The Musée d’Orsay has been open to the public since December 1986: once a palace then a hotel and a station, it has been a listed building since 1978...
Among the different collections presented in the museum, the one devoted to Impressionism is the richest and best-known, and includes works by Auguste Renoir (“Le Bal au Moulin de la Galette”) and Claude Monet (“La Gare Saint-Lazare”).


If you’ve always wanted to see Madonna, Pablo Picasso, Spiderman, French pop star Lorie, Louis Armstrong, Albert Einstein or Louis XIV, go along to the Musée Grévin and say hello to their waxworks... Spread out over six different halls — the “Palais des Mirages” (Hall of Mirrors), “Clichés du XXe siècle” (20th-century photographs), the “Histoire de France”, the “Théâtre du Tout Paris”, the “Paris Grévin Magazine” and the “Collection Grévin” — are life-size waxworks of the stars of showbiz and people in the news, past and present. The collection is updated regularly: Philippe Starck and Barack Obama are the two latest additions.
Make it a family trip with the children: they’ll enjoy spotting celebrities and being let into the secret of how the waxworks are made
