Klimt at the Atelier des Lumières

Klimt at the Atelier des Lumières

The good news is that the Gustav Klimt/Hundertwasser show at the Atelier des Lumières has been extended! The bad news is that tickets are selling out quickly and you only have through January 6, 2019. You can purchase your tickets here. So what am I talking about?...

What To Do On a Rainy Day

What To Do On a Rainy Day

I was returning from lunch with a friend by Étoile/Arc de Triomphe a couple of weeks ago and I got caught in the rain. This was not your romantic Paris rain of the movies, but an immediate death-to-all-umbrellas sort of rain. BHV It occurred to me though, as I finally...

You still have a few more weeks to catch the Osiris, Egypt's Sunken Mysteries exhibit at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris's 5th arrondissement, not far from Notre Dame Cathedral. The exhibit runs though January 31, 2016. Why "sunken" mysteries? Because most of the...

The Louvre: Did You Know…?

The Louvre: Did You Know…?

Did you know that if you spent 30 seconds at each piece in the Louvre, it would take you 100 days to see everything the museum holds? Our friends at The Paris Pass have put together an interesting infographic that I wanted to share with you this week. The infographic...

Discover Walks – Montmartre and the Impressionists

Discover Walks – Montmartre and the Impressionists

Earlier this month, I was invited by Discover Walks to join one of their Paris walking tours. I chose the Montmartre and the Impressionists tour because I was not as familiar with this neighborhood as I am with some of the other parts of the city where they conduct...
