The Buttes Chaumont Park in Paris

Buttes Chaumont, literally the &Mont chauve&, meaning bald hill, was a desolate mining site for centuries. In less than 150 years, it was turned from a bandits’ lair into one of the boiggest, most original and attractive parks of the city, welcoming hipster youth, families and romantics in search of  atmosphere, which you will not find in any other green area of the city. The main reason is its topography, which derives directly from its historic function as a mining site. It is both beautiful and one of the less well known parks, given its isolated location and the fact that it is far from most Parisian touristic sites. Also, you need to take 2 metro lines to reach it from many parts of the city.

Henri Fantin Latour exhibition

One of the elusive yet ubiquitous figures of 19th century French painting is Henri Fantin Latour. He is often described as a realist, yet he also immersed himself in works of imagination. His group portraits recall Courbet. His friends included Bazile, Renoir and Sisley, but he was also close to Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas […]

The catacombs of Paris

The city of Paris is old, and one of its mysterious aspects is its underground, part of which evolved into the catacombs. That term literally means ‘underground cemetery,’ deriving from Greek (cata or beneath) and Latin (tumba, or tomb).

In the first three centuries AD, Romans, Etruscans, Jews and Christians used existing underground galleries to […]
