Like every here, Maison et Objet 2018 will take place in Paris, one of the most important capitals in Europe. Let’s see what to visit in this beautiful city while attending the event!
Getting to Paris is quite easy: the capital is in the centre of France and Europe: it is also the ideal base for discovering France. From here trains run to all destinations.
Paris has two major airports, Charles De Gaulle (CDG) and Paris Orly (ORY). Charles De Gaulle, the largest, is connected to the centre by the RER B railway line, which arrives to Gare Du Nord, or to Chatelet-Les Halles station, where you can easily take the subway.
Orly Airport is connected to the centre by a metro line, OrlyVal, which reaches Antony’s RER station, from which you can change and reach the centre.
There was once an iron tower, built at the Universal Exhibition of 1889, and it had to be dismantled … but fortunately, it was not! Paris Symbol par excellence, the Eiffel Tower is the most visited monument in the world, with six million visitors each year. Illuminated after sunset with a glittering play of lights, once every 60 minutes, is the tallest building in Ville Lumière: 324 meters. Dizziness assured!
The Eiffel Tower is open every day. From 15 June to 1 September the time is from 9am to 10.45pm. The rest of the year, from 9.30 to 18.30 on the stairs, and until 23.45 with the elevator. The ticket up to the top costs 17 euros, 13 euros for under 24, 10 euros for children. Book in advance to skip the queue!
Impressive and mysterious, the Gothic cathedral of Notre Dame (built from 1163 and completed in 1344) has entered the collective imagination thanks to Victor Hugo’s homonymous novel. Nowadays, thousands of photos of tourists come in all the guides of Paris and in every postcard that is respected: it is in the center of the city, on the Île de la Cité – indeed: you could say it is the center of Paris, and you should not miss the things to see in the French capital. The entrance is free, but the tower is paid: ready to burst into its spheres, surrounded by mysterious stone demons? The Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris is open daily from 7.45 to 18.45 (19.45 on Saturdays and Sundays).
