If you want to live an authentic Parisian experience, you sometimes need to go off the beaten track: after passing through the unmissable of the 9th arrondissement (Galeries Lafayette, Sacré Coeur, Moulin Rouge, Rue des Martyrs…) discover our secret gems, only a stone’s throw from Maison Mère!
Paris Upside Down
Shop display windows are bursting with hearts. Restaurants are offering intimate dinners for two. Ads are focusing on perfumes and jewellery. You can certainly tell that Valentine's Day is almost here. But here at the Maison Mère we prefer to tell you about a fascinating place where the art of the Romanticism movement still retains its poignancy; the Musée de la Vie Romantique (Museum of Romantic Life).
The Louvre, Notre-Dame, Montmartre, the Champs-Élysées; okay, you think you know Paris well. But today, we bring to your attention an unusual place you might not have heard about; the Petite Ceinture (Little Belt). It’s a world apart and constantly evolving.
