Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Paris

Louvre
The Louvre needs no introduction but a trip could benefit from a few helpful tips.
Maison de la Photographie
Opéra Bastille
This innovative design has mixed receptions but the performances are world-class.
Opéra Garnier
From the underground lake to the ceiling painted by Chagall, the Opéra Garnier is a sight to behold. And that's before the performance even begins.
Museé d’Orsay
Beautiful location, fantastic art, and the in-house eateries are good, too. What more could you ask for?
Musée National Picasso
This magnificant museum houses the world's most complete Picasso collection and thus attracts a huge tourist crowd for both the extraordinary collection and (in summer months) the charming garden attached.
Mémorial des Martyrs
Beautiful and bleak is this morgue turned memorial.
Cimetière du Montparnasse
This is an ideal place for a whistle stop tour of Parisian cultural heritage where so many cultural icons continue to draw crowds. Stroll around St Germain and enjoy the chic cafe scene to refuel before a spot of sightseeing.
Cimetière du Père-Lachaise
This is an ideal spot to catch up on Parisian history.
Cinéma du Panthéon | Salon du thé
Aside from the film programming, the venue's other highlight is the salon du thé above the theatre. One of us actually lived next door before discovering this spot—a genuine hidden hideout.
Music at Chatelet
This bustling area of the Marais is a constant buzz of conversation and music. While on your shopping spree stop at this busy metro station and enjoy some truly excellent musicians.
La Maison Rouge
La Maison Rouge joins other Parisian landmarks in celebrating the contemporary art scene.
La Comedie Francaise
With a repertoire of around 3000 plays from the classical to the brand new it's well worth checking out La Comedie Francaise.
Jardin du Luxembourg
Located in bustling St. Germain, Le Jardin de Luxembourg will certainly entertain for the day.
Institut du Monde Arabe
Craving some geometrical historical archeological and intellectual illumination? Fear not. The Institut de Monde Arabe will provide.
Centre Georges Pompidou
Colour variety and ingenuity meet in this cross-cultural venue in the Marais.
