The Grupo Regina Hoteles want to keep people inform about the best options of places to visit in the cities where have his hotels (Barcelona, Paris, Roma and soon Buenos Aires) That why we have this Top 10 museums in Paris.

1. Musee du Louvre
Musee du Louvre, Paris, Ile-de-France
You really could spend all day in here. Maybe even 2 days. A fascinating collection of artifacts, even the building itself is amazing. I’ve always felt rushed to get through, so if you really want to enjoy it, get there early and plan your day around it.

2. Musee d’Orsay
Musee d’Orsay, Paris, Ile-de-France
Like the Louvre, interesting collectiong housed within an interesting building. A must if you enjoy art.

3. Musee du Vin
Musee du Vin (Wine Museum), Paris, Ile-de-France
Museum of wine. Pretty sure I don’t have to say anymore.

4. Arc de Triomphe
Arc de Triomphe, Paris, Ile-de-France
Not a museum, but worth going to see. Be ready to climb up all the stairs. Small history exhibits near the top provide a small resting place.

5. Centre Pompidou
Centre Pompidou, Paris, Ile-de-France
Just going to see the building alone is worth it. This collections inside are pretty good as well.

6. City Museum of Modern Art
City Museum of Modern Art (Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris), Paris, Ile-de-France
Interesting collection. Most art fans enjoy it.

7. Musee de l’Histoire de France
Musee de l’Histoire de France, Paris, Ile-de-France
I’ve never been, but I’ve heard its pretty good. And yes, there is more to the history of France than retreating.

8. Hotel des Invalides
Les Invalides, Paris, Ile-de-France
Better for history buffs than anyone else, but still interesting nonetheless.

9. Musee du Luxembourg
Musee du Luxembourg, Paris, Ile-de-France
Another must for art fans. Interesting collection, no rush to get through the museum.

10. Musee Picasso
Musee Picasso, Paris, Ile-de-France
If you like Picasso, or think you might, go; you’ll love it. If you’re not a Picasso fan, don’t waste your time.

Top 10 activities in Paris

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!

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.

Paris Fashion and trends!

Design and fashion are 2 topics that the Grupo Regina Hoteles never forget, that’s why we have selected this interesting article about some options to make the best buys in Paris!

The areas of Abbesses and rue des Gardes have become a magnet for designers, offering a wide and original choice.Forget about quaint Nuns!

paris fashion

Montmartre is not only a picturesque basilica. The worldwide famous hill also welcomes boho Abbesses, and the upcoming area of Goutte-d’Or. Take a wise stroll into its best-kept secrets, and discover its workshops and concept-stores : you’ll find incredible outfits. Let’s start with one of the best boutiques : Spree , well tucked behind the Place des Abbesses, offers very original clothes, coupled with a selection of vintage furniture and a choice of accessories. A few steps away, you’ll find and her Emmanuelle Zysman eclectic jewellery. On the fashionable rue Houdon, numerous workshps will attract your curiosity, including Les Filles à l’Anis, for a girly look. Men aren’t forgotten at Omiz, displaying contemporary urbanwear for all genders.

If this is not enough, be brave and walk some more, down to the Goutte-d’Or area : the stroll will lead you from the Amélie Poulain side of Montmartre to the most cosmopolitan part of the city, fuelled with a wonderful energy. Between rue de la Goutte-d’or and rue Myrrha, you’ll find the rue des Gardes, also called « Fashion street » since 2002 and the opening of numerous workshops. Sakina M’Sa (at n°6) was one of the first to open. She has a great talent for women’s fashion. Dognin (at n°4) sells luxurious sadlery : two of its bags were bought by the famous Parisian fashion museum Galliera. Sylviane Nuffer (at n°6 bis) is dedicated to corsets. All the designers of this street offer high-quality and successful items : the rue des Gardes is a true laboratory of the latest Parisian trends.

BOUTIQUE SONIA RYKIEL, TOUR EIFFEL ET CHAMPS ELYSEES, PARIS

Should you be able to afford a luxurious shopping or only willing to check the most beautiful window displays, Paris offers three areas dedicated to stylish fashion : the historical Faubourg-Saint-Honoré (where Paul Poiret had his couture house at the beginning of the XXth century), the adjoining Palais-Royal (where upmarket shops have opened recently), and Saint-Germain-des-Prés (which turned from a literary spot to a very desirable neighbourhood). Of course, start with the legendary Chanel couture house : it hasn’t moved from its original settings on rue Cambon. From there, you just have to walk on Faubourg-Saint-Honoré and rue Saint-Honoré : exclusive labels fight for your attention. The unique Colette (the first true Parisian concept-store, opened in the Nineties) is at 213 and was renovated this summer. A few steps away you will find the Palais-Royal, a luxury piazza dedicated to the very best of fashion : alongside the historical galleries, you’ll find Martin Margiela , Rick Owens, Marc Jacobs, and even the very Pope of vintage Didier Ludot (beware, it’s not a thrift-store, but more a museum-like boutique with fantastic displays and high prices).
