Art Deco tour in Montmartre
Saturday, 3 December at 10 am
The Art Deco movement officially took off in Paris in 1925 amid the rapid industrialisation of Western Europe. Montmartre has plenty of prime Art Deco examples. We will concentrate our walk on some very representative 1920s buildings, some cottages of the 1930s and some very modernists apartment buildings and artist studios. A different insight on Montmartre for sure !
Gourmet Tour at the Louvre
Friday, 9 December at 7 pm
Just because we are getting close to Christmas and New Year's festivities, Claude is taking you in December on a "gourmet tour" at the Louvre. Throughout the Dutch, Flemish, French and Italian galleries, we will enjoy the representation of sacred or profane meals but with a special attention on the food products that are served on the paintings. Get ready for recipes !
Bibliothèque Nationale, Richelieu, le Cabinet des Médailles
Thursday, 15 December at 10:30 am
Years of work on the Richelieu site of the Bibliothèque Nationale have come to end. It is a spectacular renaissance that has taken place within the Hôtel Colbert, waiting to be discovered!
Around the Saint Severin Church
Thursday, 12 January at 10 am
The Saint-Séverin district was the first district inhabited by the Romans on the Left Bank. Dominated by vineyards, this settlement developed in the Middle Ages around two charming churches: the Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre Church and the Saint-Séverin Church. Little by little, the very first Left Bank colleges invaded the Latin Quarter.
This visit will therefore be an opportunity to discover one of the oldest districts of Paris, very well restored with its many old shops.
