To kick off your stay in Paris, there’s no better place to start than the centre of the French capital. With magnificent heritage, unmissable museums and fun, original activities, the heart of Paris is perfect for enjoying the city with friends.
During your 3-day weekend, the 3 Day Paris Passlib' is the key that gives you transport in Paris, a cruise, a sightseeing bus tour, and unlimited access to 60 museums and monuments.
20th century art at the Centre Pompidou
Fans of contemporary art visiting Paris won’t want to miss the Centre Pompidou. Behind the symbolic coloured tubes on one side and the spectacular outside escalator on the other, it displays the biggest collection of 20th century art in Europe. Whilst some hurry to see the modern art collection (Braque, Picasso, Duchamp, Dali, Matisse, etc.), others prefer to see artistic movements such as Pop Art (Warhol, Lichtenstein, etc.) or modern conceptual art. Unless one of the many temporary exhibitions is more appealing! After visiting the design boutique, groups of friends, art students, or couples can meet up on the Beaubourg piazza and share their experiences on a cafe terrace in front of works by Niki de Saint-Phalle, decorating the Stravinsky fountain.
Sport and discovery in one
Hop on a bike to tour the streets of the capital and take in the atmosphere of each neighbourhood. Book a guided bike tour with your group of friends: for an easier ride, you can choose electric bikes with Paris Bike Tours, or you can combine your tour with tasting or a visit to the Louvre and discover hidden parts of the city with the Unusual Paris and Paris Contrast tours by Paris à Vélo c’est Sympa. All you have to do is follow your guide!
Tremble in fear at the Manoir de Paris
For an experience you and your friends will remember for years to come, step inside the Manoir de Paris. France’s first haunted house has 35 professional actors for a show that adapts to different events during the year (Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc.). Escape the monsters, face your darkest fears, and have some fun!
Laugh and relax with a One Man Show
During his 5 years in America, ex-sommelier Olivier Giraud closely observed cultural differences. On his return to Paris, he attained his dream of becoming a comedian and creating a one-man show. His show, which has run non-stop since 2009 in front of some 500,000 spectators, is a survival guide to the Parisian jungle. Written in a level of English that is accessible to everyone, the show reveals, in one hour, exactly how Parisians act in a shop, restaurant, night club, taxi, or on the metro... A perfect moment to share with friends of all nationalities!
