This unic experience still has a cost, the night is 750€ minimum.

The best restaurants in the 7th District!

Let’s discover a small restaurant called Le Pottoka at the 4 Rue de l’Exposition, it’s really a a little gem of gastronomy! From starters to desserts it’s a surprising alloy of flavors and the prices are very reasonable! Count 35 Euros for the menu Starters+Main course+Dessert.

You can’t be desappointed!!

Josephine the Empress- Luxembourg Museum

A retrospective about Napoleon the first first’s wife will take place until June 29th at the Luxembourg Museum.

Through her personal items and pieces of her art’s collection, you’ll discover the intimacy of a woman who lived several lives in one, and was really independent and modern for this time.

She lived under one of the most important period of the French History: Revolution, Terror and the establishment of the Directory.

Marie Josèphe Rose Tascher de La Pagerie, known as Joséphine Bonaparte is very certainly one of those great women in the shadow of a great man.

The Catacombs

Did you consider visiting the Catacombs? This unusual place, located only 2 steps away from the metro station “Denfert Rochereau”, is in fact underground galleries of about 300 kilometers in which the walls are decorated with skeletons collected in former Parisian cemeteries.

Indeed, before the French Revolution, the cemeteries, especially the Innocents cemetery (beforehand next to Les Halles) became very problematic because of their insalubrity. That’s why the city of Paris was forced to close them. However, what to do with the bones? It wasn’t possible to just throw them away.  This is how the idea to move and store them in formers quarries emerged.

If it is today one of the famous museum of the City, it was previously a curiosity, visited by a few important characters such as Charles the tenth, François the first and Napoléon the third … But let’s discover this singular place by yourselves!
