Paris Prepares Herself For The Christmas Season
This part of November is when the transformation of Paris begins as the city prepares for the festive season. The streets are festooned with decorations and lights, shop windows are trimmed and filled with seasonal fare and picturesquely traditional markets spring up in various neighbourhoods. There’s ice skating, carrousel rides and a colossal Ferris wheel to give you a bird’s eye view of the city.
However, with all that Christmas excitement going on we should not forget that the kind of events that give Paris her reputation as a city of culture and vibrancy continue on as usual. For example, the Musée Picasso reopened last month. Its superb new layout and increased exhibition space is still the talk of the city, and should not be missed. Then, if it’s family entertainment you are looking for, the Cirque Phénix is offering a brand new show that will thrill and amaze you. For more information, please read on.
The Picasso Museum has reopened to great acclaim
Following a number of years of controversial delays the Musée Picasso reopened in late October and the renovated building was immediately hailed as a triumph. The vast expense involved has resulted in a state of the art museum to house the world’s largest collection of original works by the late Spanish artistic genius. The collection consists of over 5,000 works by Picasso including paintings, sketches, engravings, sculptures and a vast amount of archival material chronologically charting the evolution of the artist’s style and technique. Picasso once hailed himself as the greatest collector of his own work. This is his collection and more.
CirkAfrica2; The amazing new show at the Cirque Phénix
The Cirque Phénix, in the east of Paris, boasts a fabulous reputation for family entertainment. Last year the venue presented CirkAfrica, graced with astonishing physical feats, wonderful music and fabulous costumes. This year, until January 13th you can enjoy the even greater spectacle that is CirkAfrica2; Soweto To Harlem. Combining the acrobatic, aerialist and juggling feats of the traditional circus with the great music, singing, dancing and comedy of the musical theatre, this is a show that thoroughly deserves the description, ‘unique’! Fifty stunningly talented African performers, a great collection of musicians and incredible costumes will have you and your family enthralled.
Why not enjoy Your Christmas shopping in Paris?
As our guest at Les Plumes Hotel you will be well located to enjoy a Parisian Christmas shopping spree that will start your festive season with a bang. Shops throughout the city are decked out in their festive finery, and none more so than the legendary Galeries Lafayette and Printemps on the Boulevard Haussmann, with their beautiful and evocative window displays. The city’s largest Christmas market on the Champs Elysées also awaits your shopping pleasure, along with the smaller but even more charming market on the Rue des Abbesses in Montmartre. You’ll be surprised at what you can find in these Santa’s villages!
