Top 10 activities in Paris

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

The Grupo Regina Hoteles want to recommend 10 different things to do in Paris!

eiffel-tower 1.The Eiffel Tower – No list concerning Paris would be complete without a mention of The Eiffel Tower, and this holds true for a list of cultural activities, as well. Not only can you take a tour of the historic monument, but there are numerous other events held here as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

nortedame2.Notre Dame de Paris – Perhaps one of the most notable Gothic style cathedrals of all time, Notre Dame de Paris is one of the city’s most notable attractions; and it is well-known for its annual Lent sermons, a tradition that has continued since the 1840s.

 

 

 

 

 

tour-de-france3.Tour de France – Although the starting point of the 3,500 kilometre race varies each year, and the race actually goes through several countries that border France, the ending point of the final stage is always in Paris; making this race one of the most popular activities in Parisian culture to date.

 

 

 

4.Palais Garnier – Parisians have always loved their opera and theatre, and they still do. And with the Palais Garnier, also known as the Opera de Paris, theatre patrons can enjoy classic ballets and opera performances in a historic, 2,200 seat venue that dates all the way back to 1875.

 

 

 

 

5.Stade de France – Every culture enjoys sporting events and activities, and Paris is no exception. The 80,000 seat venue was originally built in anticipation for the 1998 FIFA World Cup; and when France defeated Brazil to win the cup, France’s national stadium was instantly thrust into the spotlight as one of Paris’ most beloved attractions.

 

 

 

 

opera-bastille6.Opera Bastille – Originally designed to replace the Palais Garnier, which never came to fruition, the Opera Bastille has found its niche hosting shows and events with a more “modern” feel. And with 2,723 there is plenty of room for those who want to enjoy the cultural activities that are held here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

louvre-museum-picture7.The Louvre – The national museum of France, The Louvre is a significant landmark as it holds some of France’s most prolific pieces of history, including the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo statue. Because of this, touring The Louvre is one of the most popular cultural activities that the city of France has to offer.

 

 

 

rock-en-seine-paris8.Rock en Seine – Parisians like their live rock music, too – proof of this can be seen in the success of Rock en Seine, one of the many annual music festivals held in Paris, France. Since 2003 the multi-day festival has hosted many bands and concert-goers alike, quickly becoming one of the most popular cultural activities in the city.

 

 

 

 

disneyland_paris_france_original9.Disneyland Resort Paris – Disneyland wasn’t always a cultural attraction in Paris, but it certainly is now. In the Eastern suburbs of France, Disneyland Resort Paris has been operating since 1992 and it has remained one of Europe’s top tourist attractions ever since.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

zenith10.Le Zenith – Another testament for their love of live music, Le Zenith is a shared name given to 15 venues located around France, the original of which was founded in Paris in 1983. Ever since then it has remained one of the most enjoyed cultural activities in Paris.

The last Low-Cost proposal!

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

Sounds strange but is the new propose of one of the most famous “Low Cost” companies which is studying the possibility of carrying passengers with out chairs in order to offer lower costs rates for users and increase the benefit of the company. This controverted propose can not take shape yet, because it needs the approval of the aviation authorities. The company also asked to Boeing to consider design spaces in the air-crafts where passengers can fly without chairs but with seat belts.
