Comment entrer dans les sublimes locaux de l’académie française ? Allez à la bibliothèque!
“In the astonishing confines of a Beaux-Arts railway station is a compendium of French art and culture from the mid-19th century to 1914. The Gare d’Orsay is on the left bank of the Seine and was completed in 1900 for the Exposition Universelle. After becoming obsolete for modern rail travel the building sat idle before being listed and turned into one of the largest art museums in the world, filling the gap between the Louvre and the National Museum of Modern Art at the Pompidou Centre. In this unforgettable environment are scores of iconic works of art by Impressionists and Post-Impressionists like Renoir (Bal du Moulin de la Galette), Cézanne (The Card Players and Apples and Oranges), van Gogh (Starry Night Over the Rhône) and Manet (Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe).”
“Independent cinema in the Sorbonne borough. With Luxembourg parc not too far and place de la contrescarpe pedestrian street to visit. ”
“The cheapest lunch menu of a 2 star Michelin restaurant in Paris (60€). Dinners are much more expensive. The decor is a bit cold (business style), but the food is delicious.”
