Your family trip to Paris

Adults and children will love discovering Paris, and everyone will find their interest there through the many sites and multiple activities offered at the different sites. Here are some ideas for family visits close to the Cadet residence.

Visit the Opéra Garnier district

Let’s start our Parisian journey in the Opéra Garnier district, just a stone’s throw from the Cadet aparthotel.

Exploring the Opéra Garnier

The opera house in Paris was originally located in rue Le Peletier, before Napoleon III was the victim of an attack there in 1858 (he was fortunately spared). From then on, the emperor decided to rebuild the opera in a street less prone to attacks. A competition is then organized to determine which architect will be responsible for designing this new large theatre. Charles Garnier is thus designated, and Baron Haussmann chooses the new location of the opera. Work thus began in 1861 and was completed in 1875.

Parisians and tourists from all over the world then discovered a sumptuous building, with architecture inspired by the Second Empire style. Adorned with many statues and gilding, theOpéra Garnier is worth a visit both for its ostentatious facade, but also for its luxurious interior.

Today, the Opéra Garnier is mainly dedicated to ballets, but it is also possible to access it for a simple visit, outside show times.

Meet the statues of the Grévin museum

At the bottom of the boulevard de Montmartre, the Grévin museum seduces young and old with its world famous wax statues.

Built in 1882, this museum was initially designed to allow Parisians to discover the faces of the personalities who make the headlines. Today, in the era of television and digital technology, the museum’s notoriety persists, offering visitors the opportunity to discover the wax statue very realistic

Thus gather in this establishment the personalities of the world of music, cinema, football, and many other fields.

The Grévin museum then offers a fun experience for children, who can take a selfie with Lady Gaga or Cristiano Ronaldo, but also for adults, who will have the privilege of meeting Leonardo da Vinci, or even Louis XIV.

Shopping in the Opéra district

Shoppers will be delighted to find themselves in the capital of fashion, and even more, a stone’s throw from Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Haussmann.

These two big names in fashion are undeniably must-haves for fashionistas looking for exceptional pieces.

Then go to Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, the largest store in Europe, where luxury boutiques compete in beauty and temptation. Ready-to-wear obviously bears witness to French know-how, but there are also many brands of all kinds.

At Printemps Haussmann, between the Opéra Garnier and Saint-Lazare station, fashion lovers are not left wanting. Known for having invented the concept of sales, the Printemps Haussmann imposes itself on 27 floors and 43,500 m², offering shops of all kinds: women’s, men’s and children’s fashion, home, beauty…

If the Galeries Lafayette and the Printemps Haussmann are indisputably high places of French fashion, they are also buildings with breathtaking architecture, testimony to the rich cultural heritage of the country.

Visit the Montmartre district

The continuation of the discovery of Paris takes us to the Montmartre district, where the bohemian atmosphere awaits you in a bubble out of time.

Rue des Martyrs

Straddling the 9thand 18tharrondissements of Paris, rue des Martyrs is more of a part of the Pigalle district, but it is a stone’s throw from Montmartre, and leads to the Sacré-Coeur. Very commercial, this typically Parisian street offers a picturesque charm to discover, between festive cabarets, lively cafes and legendary concert halls.

The rue des Martyrs then offers you two faces: during the day, it is very commercial, but at night, it is transformed into a Mecca for Parisian parties.

Visiting the Sacré-Coeur

At the top of the Montmartre hill, overlooking Paris, the Sacré-Coeur basilica is one of the capital’s most emblematic historical monuments. With its Romano-Byzantine architecture, the building stands out with its white color. But to get there, you will have to earn it, and climb the 222 steps that provide access to the basilica.

Inside, visitors are captivated by the beauty of the largest mosaic in France which decorates the ceiling, but also by its crypt.

To put stars in the eyes of children and parents, treat yourself to the experience of climbing on the dome of the basilica. You will then enjoy a 360° view of Paris and its marvels: Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Panthéon, Montparnasse tower…

Going down, discover the picturesque atmosphere of the small Parisian streets, passing by the Place du Tertre, and until you reach the famous Moulin Rouge.Are you planning to stay in Paris with your family ? The Cadet residence is the ideal pied-à-terre to enjoy all of Paris. Close to all transport, the hotel will allow you to visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, and many other monuments that will appeal to young and old.
