    Granted it's hard to appreciate the beauty of this place with hundreds of people milling about, especially those who spent an unbelievable amount of time posing for 'selfies' or photos rather than looking at the magnificance of the building, but it really was worth seeing. Would love to see it again with less people.

    A lot of fun and very well organized. Our instructor was cheerful and good teacher. Would definitely recommend this as a fun activity for families and groups visiting Paris. I only wish it were a little more hands on. We did not get a chance to make the macaron shells, just the ganache. I understand this was for time reasons, but it would have been informative. Otherwise, a lot of fun!

    This was part of Paris Pass. The actual making of the perfume was simple, yet I learned a lot about perfume itself. the guide was wonderful and informative. I usually do not buy souvenirs after events like this, yet I did end up buying a set of Fragonard perfume at a great price ( I believe the set price is only offered at the museum) . I still enjoy the great quality French perfume I bought and wished I bought more. They are very different from Dior or Chanel has the quality is excellent.

    This "neighborhood" church sits in the center of a busy part of Paris. Not far from the Place du Concord it has numerous sculptures and art works. The giant entry doors are reminiscent of the Baptistry doors in Florence. The organ here is Massive. I believe it is one of the largest in France. Material in the church indicates it is a popular concert venue.

    Wonderfully intimate museum celebrating the magical art of Gustave Moreau! If you enjoy his work, you simply must visit! If you don't know his work yet, this is the best place to get acquainted!
    The museum is his own villa, where he lived and worked in the second half of the nineteenth century.
    It still very much breathes that age, and his love for mythological beauty, and you can visit his domestic rooms, as well as the two big ateliers. The whole villa is crammed with Moreau's paintings, watercolours and drawings! A feast for the senses!

    We rented an apartment in this area and liked for the convenience. Well served by the Metro, plus there are sites within walking distance, especially the beautiful Garnier Opera House. Big department stores, lots of restaurants and cafes, plus the largest concentration of hotels in the city.

    Visited the theatre to see Ghost: Le Musical. I purchased my ticket at the box office and the lady kindly informed me that the balcony was closed, so if I purchased a balcony ticket my seat would be moved closer, so for €30 I ended up with a perfect view in Row L of the orchestra. All of the ushers were incredibly patient and helpful in guiding me to where I needed to be (not being fluent in French I didn’t understand the general directions given as they opened the doors). Compared to other older theatres I’ve been in there was lots of leg room and the seats were larger than average too. Had an enjoyable experience and loved the show!

    A grand area, being home to the Opera Garnier, however, during this visit it was all about the shopping, there is something for everyone here, also plenty of restaurants, cafes, boulangerie, for that well needed break

    Lovely shopping area. Quite small but some very interesting shops for quirky finds. Found exactly what I wanted and wasn’t overly expensive

    The permanent collection is free to visit, and, while relatively small (basically several floors of furnished rooms and exhibits), it does provide a (small) window into that period in Paris. The main attraction is the house itself, which is typical of that time and of this place - others have been torn down and been supplanted by multistory residential buildings. It doesn’t take long to visit, you can get something to eat in the café just outside the house, and there is a small gift shop at the entrance. If you are just passing by and it is open, why not? There are also some temporary exhibitions in an adjacent building that do require an entry fee - the subject varies but will be related to that era.

    Great theatre for an intimate show, only downside no photography allowed and our knees were touching the seats in front of us - not much room to manoeuvre. Good acoustics and we could almost make out her facial expressions, I'd never been so close.

    Should go for sure if u are in Paris amazing entrance lobby with music and lights. Many famous people inside to get a nice selfie with. Takes around 1 hour to get through. Go there early and buy tickets there. Leave your jacket at the start of the tour. And use the wc also. Cause inside there are only rooms with the statues. Nothing else

    Went to watch a show here and was totally thrilled. It is a hidden gem. The interior is top notch. The seats were a little confining and that’s me short. If you have long legs I’m thinking it could be quite uncomfortable. All in all it really was a good experience.

    For us its the awesome walkable streets that make this area exciting.
    Our number one goto in the 2nd, is without a doubt is Rue Montorgueil (food street), they have the most amazing cheese shop, that has 10euro trays for the uninitiated,(us), the bakeries, (boulangeries are to die for), food just seems to to flow in the street like water, oyster shucking in the open, fresh fruit, excellent value, and the outdoor terracing, we were. Never bored walking up and down this street, or the ones in the list for that matter.

    Things to do list:
    Passage du Grand-Cerf, covered passage, probably the nicest in Paris.
    La Porte Saint-Denis and Rue Saint Denis, awesome cheap clothing shops, and all things fur, also a little seedy, (red light).
    Rue Étienne-Marcel, Posh shopping, jewellery.
    Rue de la Paix, highend fashion.

    This is a beautifully preserved artifact from the early 19th Century. There is a little bit of shopping in here, and there are a couple of places to eat and drink. But the best part of this experience is the exquisite architecture which will make you take out your camera.
