The multitude of opportunities that Paris can take advantage of is enough to disorientate the undecided! By day and by night, the “City of Light” knows how to entertain its inhabitants and the tourists who visit it. Zoom in on some entertaining outings!

A fun family outing

Entertaining toddlers while awakening them to the world of science is one of the missions of a great Parisian museum. The “Cité des Sciences” welcomes children and their parents for activities planned for the age categories 2 to 7 years and 5 to 12 years. Located in La Villette, this educational and friendly place allows a young public to become familiar with scientific phenomena in a relaxed way by participating in harmless experiments! It is an opportunity for budding scientists to exchange and play with other children in a pleasant environment, accessible to people with reduced mobility. Instructive and fun, the games offered on site give children the opportunity to acquire knowledge outside the school environment. Going out in Paris also means appreciating art, including in its most contemporary form.

An artistic and cultural walk

It is always a good idea to take a walk around the Pompidou centre, you can even spend the day there while eating on site. With its unique architecture, outdoor escalators and bright colours, this museum of modern art houses works in two categories. The modern period from 1905 to 1960 is illustrated by paintings by great masters of painting, such as Matisse, Picasso or Dubuffet among other renowned artists. Another space is dedicated to the paintings, sculptures and installations of contemporary creators such as Niki de Saint-Phalle, Andy Warhol or Anish Kapoor. In addition to these vast collections from the 20th and 21st centuries, the Centre Pompidou regularly offers exhibitions of international prestige. The latter take place on the first floor of the museum, which also houses a library and a shop.

An unforgettable evening

The capital is indeed known for its nightlife. Whether you are a permanent resident of the “City of Light” or just passing through for a few days, dinner on the Seine aboard a cruise ship is a prestigious option. Guests embark at the foot of Paris’ emblematic monument, the Eiffel Tower. During their river itinerary, they will have the opportunity to admire other famous Parisian buildings from an unusual angle by enjoying an à la carte menu composed of gastronomic dishes faithful to the French tradition. It is possible to extend this refined evening with a very festive moment in a Parisian cabaret. Night owls are spoilt for choice as many of these glamorous entertainment hotspots are well established. The mythical Moulin-Rouge, Crazy Horse, Lido or Paradis Latin are must-see destinations in the evening!
