The Palais Royal district
Located in the heart of Paris, rue Sainte-Anne (“Sainte-Anne street”) starts 200 meters from the Opéra Garnier, crosses the Palais Royal and the Comédie Française and ends not far from the Jardin des Tuileries and the Louvre. It includes hidden jewels of the capital such as the Passages Choiseul and Sainte-Anne, covered commercial arcades built in the 19th century.
This district boasts the most emblematic gardens of the Parisian capital: behind the arcades of the Comédie française are the gardens of the Palais Royal with their famous Buren columns. A hundred meters away is the entrance to the Tuileries Gardens with the Jeu de Paume and Orangerie museums at the western entrance and the Louvre and its great pyramid to the north. Every year, at the time of the fairs dedicated to modern art (FIAC and now ART BASEL), the Tuileries Garden is transformed into an outdoor exhibition space. Fashion Week and its famous shows also takes place in this area.
Rue Sainte-Anne is sometimes referred to as “Little Tokyo”; this street began to be associated with Japanese culture in the 1960s, when the first entrepreneurs from the archipelago settled in the neighborhood and with them came many businesses imbued with flavors from elsewhere. Today, restaurants, traditional bakeries and Japanese supermarkets not only delight the taste buds of the Japanese inhabitants of Paris, but they also attract French people who love this fine Asian cuisine. This clientele has brought success to Sainte-Anne and today the street is buzzing from noon to night.

THE OPERA DISTRICT
The Opera district is perfectly situated in the heart of Paris and one can find everything nearby. In the middle of the square, like a jewel facing the magnificent avenue, thrones the sumptuous Opera Garnier, symbol of the Second Empire, with its imposing facade, marble columns, gilding, grandiose statues and its famous ceiling painted by Marc Chagall. This temple of dance and music fascinated the impressionist Edgar Degas and expresses the true character of the district. It is a visit not to be missed!

Montmartre is an emblematic neighborhood of Paris with its maze of narrow cobbled streets and alleyways, its food shops, restaurants, theaters, concert halls, cabarets and movie theaters, not forgetting its terraces open all year round.

This village in the middle of the capital was a source of inspiration for many artists such as Picasso, Renoir, Toulouse Lautrec, Utrillo, Degas and many others. The singer Dalida particularly loved this neighborhood. Film enthusiasts can discover the emblematic places from the film Amélie Poulain such as the grocery store or the famous “Café Deux Moulins” on rue Lepic.
