Find the not to be missed sights of Paris
The Cité des sciences et de l’industrie: learning to love learning. From your Première Classe Montreuil hotel, take off in search of the Cité des sciences. You really don’t want to miss it. Right next to the main building stands the Geode, a gigantic shiny sphere made of metal triangles, like a bubble falling directly from space. A life-size science fiction movie, to be pursued indoors thanks to an IMAX 3D movie theater, which broadcasts captivating movies all year round, transports you to the far reaches of the galaxies or the depths of the sea. Step out of your bubble to enter the Cité des sciences, which has set itself the task of making complicated things simple. To achieve this, try the workshops and fun activities, with the experience of the inevitable static electricity that makes hair stand on end (photo obligatory!). The exhibitions take you to every corner of the scientific universe: discover not only astronomy with the planetarium's laser projections, but also mathematics, biology, physics and chemistry. You can travel infinitely far, when it comes to studying the nucleus of exoplanets, or infinitely close, by studying the heart of the potato, which is the star of the periodic table for food. Practical work at the end of the course with the escape game La Chambre des deux infinis, which plunges you into the heart of matter, which is obviously grey!
Life is sweet at the ParisLongchamp racecourse. The ParisLongchamp Hippodrome enjoys an international reputation. This racecourse, in addition to offering iconic horse races, is also an invitation to relaxation and pleasure. Located less than 15 minutes' walk from your hotel, the ParisLongchamp racecourse is indeed a haven for Parisians in search of exile. A true haven of peace at the gates of Paris, the racecourse offers various original events throughout the year. From the Solidays festival to the Garden Party, not forgetting the latest one, the Lollapalooza festival, ParisLongchamp is always in a festive mood. In the summer, also take the time to enjoy the ParisLongchamp Village, during the day or at dusk. Life is sweet here. The watchword being pleasure, everything is at your disposal so that you can make the most of it: restaurants, open-air movie theaters, rides, concerts, thematic evenings, performances by international DJs. The village lives up to its name as it offers Parisians and visitors passing through the area the opportunity to discover a happy little village, just a stone's throw from the capital.
La Villette, a playground for scientists, music lovers and lovers. With its museums and theaters, the Parc de la Villette is one of the liveliest gardens in Paris. From your Première Classe Montreuil hotel, head towards the Grande Halle, which once housed the Paris slaughterhouses and now serves as a space for exhibitions and conferences. The Trabendo concert hall stands out for its rock, rap and electro shows, while the Halle aux Cuirs is dedicated to the development of hip-hop! Open since 2015, the Philharmonie de Paris has ideal acoustics for listening to classical music. After the concert, spend a romantic moment on the Belvedere overlooking the park, to enjoy the view until nightfall. And after the stars, make way for the stars. Every summer, La Villette is transformed into a free open-air movie theater. On the Péniche cinéma, located on the canal de l'Ourcq, you can watch feature and short movies free of charge, before having a drink with the artists. Keep up with the seventh art on the Imax screens of the Geode, a movie theater that looks like a spaceship. Perfect for watching a science fiction movie, before going to the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie to learn about the mysteries of special effects, the cosmos or, more prosaically, the potato.
