Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume

“Jeu de Paume is one of the city’s best museums for photographic and video art and is in a beautiful location in the Tuileries Gardens next to the Place de la Concorde, a stone’s throw from the Louvre, which is also well worth a visit of course. "

Musée Picasso Paris

"Of all the museums in France and Spain dedicated to Picasso’s work, the Musée Picasso Paris is perhaps the most magnificent. He produced most of the art on display there while he was living and working in this country.”

Chez Janou

“Chez Janou serves incredibly tasty Provençal cuisine and also boasts 80 different kinds of pastis in the bar. Here you can enjoy starters such as baked goat’s cheese and fried sardines, a selection of delicious main courses, not to mention the world-famous homemade chocolate mousse that you can eat as much as you like of. The restaurant is in the beautiful Le Marais district, a stone’s throw from the Place des Vosges. Reserve a table in advance. "
