Best hidden spots of Paris

Have you already seen the most famous places of Paris? If the answer is no give a look to my post about three days in Paris, instead if your answer is yes let’s discover the best hidden spots of Paris!

  • Hidden from the eyes of those who wander chaotically through the shops of  Rue de Rivoli, the historical meeting place for Parisian artists at number 59 reopened its doors. Here the website  It is a building of six floors entirely occupied by all kinds of artists, entrance is free every day from 1pm to 8pm except Mondays, if you are interested take a trip and discover something unique in an unexpected place. I was literally drawn inside by soap bubbles rising from a palace window!

  • The Wall of Love. Incurable romantics,  if you have time and desire, you can go to see this work designed by Frédéric Baron in collaboration with Claire Kito. You will find written “I love you” in 311 different languages! It is located in the square Jean Rictus, Abesses underground stop.

  • The Rodin Museum is really beautiful despite being less known than the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay and the Centre Pompidou. Maybe the name will not tell you anything, but you can’t have never heard of his famous sculpture “The Thinker”. Choose a sunny day to visit this museum because the most beautiful part is the garden where you will find the Thinker, the Door of Hell and other magnificent works.  Here all the infos

  • La Madeleine Church, built in the Neo-Classical style, will surely impress you if you meet it on your way. It is near Place de la Concorde (the Ferris wheel square) and Champs-Élysées. Underground station: Madeleine (lines Paris m 8 jms.svg, Paris m 12 jms.svg e Paris m 14 jms.svg).

  • Sebastian and I the last time we were in Paris lost hours like children playing in the courtyard of the Palais Royal where the art work of the conceptual artist Buren is located: the art work is titled “Les Deux Plateaux”, but it is better known as “The Columns of Buren“. The art work consists of 260 octagonal columns, with black and white stripes and different heights. The columns have been the cause of much controversy due to the contrast with the classical columns of the Palais Royal. Address: 8 Rue de Montpensier, 75001 Paris Underground stop: Palais Royal – Musée du Louvre

  • The Statue of Liberty! No, I’m not crazy, there are two little replicas of the Statue of Liberty in Paris! One is inside the Jardin du Luxembourg. The other one, bigger, is on a man-made island in the Seine and it is looking west straight to the direction of the New York’s statue. 
  • The Panthéon is certainly not one of the few touristy or famous places of Paris, but I’m talking about it here simply because I hadn’t talked about it in the three-day itinerary in Paris. Designed on the model of the Pantheon in Rome, it contains within it a reproduction of the Foucault pendulum.
