Discovering open-air opera


Summer is coming and the search for outdoor activities is driving my days. Indeed, relaxing under the Parisian sun always gives me immense pleasure. To enjoy Paris in summer, some places are essential, such as the Tuileries garden, the Buttes Chaumont or the Plants garden. Green spaces that will make you discover the Parisian summer life that I love so much. However, this year, I have a desire for change and finding atypical outings like Paris is one of my objectives. It is with this in mind that I learned about open-air cinema, the little-known districts of the capital and music festivals. In all my research, one event directly aroused my curiosity thanks to its originality, the open-air opera.


For me opera is a classical art, synonymous with a past in which I am not particularly interested despite the fact that my parents listen to it regularly and this music rocked my childhood. However, the open-air opera approach intrigues me enormously and attending one of the concerts during the summer will be a real pleasure. Indeed, through this approach the organizers wish to modernize the aging image of this art in order to open it to a wider audience not used to going to the opera such as myself, a challenge that seems to win because these outdoor performances are more and more recognized year after year. In addition, operas are always held in mythical places in Paris, such as the Hotel National des Invalides, an opportunity to discover Parisian monuments in a new way.
I am therefore convinced that open-air opera is the atypical activity not to be missed this summer, an opportunity to spend a unique moment that you will not forget.

The Paris-London Music Migration Exhibition


I have always been a Parisian and transmitting my love of Paris to you through my articles is a real pleasure. As you may have guessed, I am very attached to my hometown, but that doesn't mean I'm a homebody.  Indeed, I love travelling and going abroad is one of my many passions. I had the chance to discover many countries in the 4 corners of the world, but yet one of my favourite destinations is located 2H from Paris, it is London. The English capital is a cosmopolitan, dynamic and historic city in which I like to travel regularly to meet London friends and visit the latest trendy exhibitions. When you think about it, Paris and London are extremely similar cities in which we find the same atmosphere between history and modernity. For me, they are almost twin cities and this is mainly due to their common history.


It is in this spirit that the Museum of the History of Immigration located in the 12th arrondissement of Paris has built the exhibition Paris-London Music Migrations, an event that offers you a trip to London until 5 January 2020. Immerse yourself in an enchanting, dynamic and pop universe between music and history rediscover the 70s, 80s and 90s as you have never seen them before. This exhibition traces the similarities between these two cities through the multiple musical currents that have transformed these capitals into multicultural megacities. Paris-London Music Migrations presents more than 600 documents and works of art related to real music, by musical and visual experience, it will make you spend unique moments. An original exhibition that I particularly appreciated, which allows you to spend an afternoon on an unusual journey through a typically Parisian museum.

A romantic stroll in Montmartre


The arrival of sunny days in the City of Light is synonymous with outings to the Gardens, on the banks of the Seine or on the terrace. Paris in spring and summer always has something magical that is difficult to explain. Personally, the moments I enjoy most during this time of year are the discoveries of the capital through long walks in the mythical and unusual districts of this magnificent city. One of my favourite Parisian districts is Montmartre, a cosmopolitan district that is constantly reinventing itself to surprise its visitors. 
I am a great romantic, in my opinion the best way to discover this neighbourhood is as a couple. So today I decided to introduce you 3 must-see places in Montmartre to spend a typically romantic Parisian unforgettable day.


How can we talk about Montmartre without mentioning the Basilica of the Sacré-Coeur? Sportsmen or not, you will not be able to leave the neighbourhood without having climbed the 237 steps that lead to the square in front of the basilica. The esplanade undoubtedly offers one of the most beautiful views of Paris, a magnificent panorama that is sublimated when he is admired in couple.

Then go down from the Butte by taking the Azais Street which leads you straight to the Place du Tertre. A place where time seems to have stopped. Between caricature painters and small café terraces, you can immerse yourself in a Paris with the bohemian atmosphere typical of the 1950s. 
End your romantic stroll by walk along Lepic Street. Stop at Moulin de la Galette, a unique restaurant, which is now the last windmill in the district that bears witness to the agricultural past of the Butte Montmartre. 

Thanks to these 3 places, you will live a unique Parisian experience during your romantic stroll in Montmartre, a day you will not forget.
