  • As part of the heritage day we had the good idea to visit the Museum of ceramics at Sèvres. Tour of the workshops, by enthusiasts of their profession. Very informative, even for people with no knowledge about the art of ceramics. Latest from porcelain and ancestral manufacturing techniques. The matter first to the finished object (dough, molding, cooking, glazing, decoration etc.). Then a visit to the Museum. Exceptional collections of ancient art to the present day, for the pleasure of the eyes.

  • 3 circuits allow to see the entire manufacturing process. The explanations and demonstrations in each workshop are a real treat. The love of the job well done and perfection are palpable. Bravo and thanks for the Organization (which should be very complex) of these 2 opening days.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
