Crossing this famous boulevard, we only see the luxurious Scribe Hotel.

Installed on the very spot where the first public screening of animated films took place,
using a cinematograph, a device invented by « Les frères lumières ».

This place is very important because it marks the beginning of cinematic history.

The ancestor of today’s shopping centres, the unique charm of Parisian covered passages
will immediately transport you back to the 19th century.

This gallery dating from 1847 is full of bookstores, antique dealers and art dealers.

The ideal place for a short stroll.

Le Square Monthlon is the perfect place to have a good time and enjoy the peace and quiet, whether alone or with friends.


Le Musée Gustave Moreau

It is a museum full of history because it was both the studio and the home of the painter Gustave Moreau.

It contains an extraordinary collection of his works art. In addition, the museum has preserved its 19th century atmosphere. 


Square Alex Biscarre

With a small surface area, this circular building park is both a family place (appreciated for its playground),
and a real haven of peace in which to rest in the shade of the trees.
But the major interest of Alex Biscarre Square is the sumptuous decor of the buildings surrounding it,
and more particularly the private hotel (called L’Hôtel Dosne-Thiers) located immediately to the left at the entrance of the park.

L’Opéra Garnier

The Opéra Garnier, or Palais Garnier, is a national theatre with the vocation of being an academy of music, choreography and lyric poetry.
Bold architecture and a rich and eclectic decoration make this opera a fascinating masterpiece.
The building houses an imposing auditorium, the ceiling of which was painted by Chagall in 1964.

Le Musée Grévin

The Grévin Museum in Paris is renowned for its originality and  unusual character.

Located in the heart of the 9th arrondissement of Paris, the famous establishment lets you admire more than 300 wax statues,
made in the effigy of historical personalities and popular stars.

in front of a meticulous representation of Barack Obama, Louis XIV, Zinédine Zidane, Elton John or Vladimir Poutine!
