However, it is very easy to get lost among a so many things to see. Don’t worry, Mama’s selection is here to help you choose what to do.

MAMA says educate yourself

Even if you can feel there like in a gallery thanks to the design by Starck, don't spend the day in your room, it would be a mistake not to enjoy the cultural heritage of Paris. It is one of the richest of the world. You may be looking for classic, modern art or science, you will easily find the appropriate museum: Le Musée du Louvre, La Cité des sciences, le Centre Pompidou, le musée du Quai Branly...

MAMA says go out

To enjoy delicious cocktails, just rely on these addresses: Experimental Cocktail Club, Prescription, Glass, Le Magnifique, le Perchoir. For those feeling like dancing till the break of dawn, we suggest you the Social Club, the Ballroom or Carmen.

Mama says let’s shop

If you’re looking for a souvenir of Paris, but something more original than an Eiffel Tower key ring, do not forget to have a look at our shop where many treasures wait for you, but also try these ones: l’Eclaireur, Centre commercial, Thank God I’m a VIP, Chez Chiffons, AMI, Colette, Merci, Spree...

Mama says don’t miss

To completely know the city, you must see it’s underground side. Don’t leave without taking a visit of the Catacombes, you would regret it. You’re looking to see celebrities but no paparazzi? Père Lachaise cemetery is the place for you. Finally, you may find that a boat trip on the curious Canal St Martin is more interesting than being on the Seine with so many people.
