In Paris: from Valentine's Day to the Art Paris Art Fair

Soon it will be Valentine's Day in Paris. Why not celebrate this significant date on the Seine, courtesy of the Bateaux Parisiens? Or if you prefer dry land, perhaps a dinner show at the Lido cabaret would be more to your taste? Read on for more information about these two options, as well as the Paris International Agricultural Show 2017 and its range of superb gastronomic products.


A Valentine's Day with Bateaux Parisiens


If the prospect of romance on the Seine appeals to you, entrust your Valentine's Day evening to Bateaux Parisiens. This company offers a special dinner cruise on the Seine with a truly sumptuous menu. Your evening promises to be rich in emotions, colourful and as magical as you have always dreamed. As you glide along the famous river while admiring the illuminated monuments, musicians will serenade you and your special one.


Parisian cabaret at the Lido


The Lido is a Parisian cabaret located on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. It is renowned for gathering together singers, dancers and an amazing selection of other performers in shows that are the very epitome of colour, opulent costumes and lavish spectacle. It was at the Lido that the dinner-show format came into existence and even today you’ll not find it done anywhere with more style and panache than in this legendary nightspot! This exceptional cabaret also offers lunch-show and champagne-show packages. For a magical evening during which you can enjoy fine cuisine and the art of entertainment, Parisian style, head for the Lido, and see why it so thoroughly deserves its international reputation.


The Closerie des Lilas


Simultaneously a café, restaurant and brasserie, the Closerie des Lilas is located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, at the eastern end of the Boulevard du Montparnasse. It is one of the most famous cafés in the capital, noted for the artists and intellectuals who electrified Montparnasse life during the first half of the twentieth century. Samuel Becket, Jean-Paul Sartre, Picasso and Man Ray frequented La Closerie des Lilas and Ernest Hemingway wrote significant portions of The Sun Also Rises here and even gave his name to one of the restaurant's specialties. Steeped in legend, La Closerie is an address you simply have to visit while in Paris, especially during the summer.


The Agricultural Show


February 25th to March 5th 2017 sees the much-anticipated return of the Paris International Agricultural Show! As always, it will be held in the spacious surroundings of the Paris Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre. This new edition is devoted to a theme inspired by current events: ‘Farming: a passion, a set of ambitions’, and promises plenty of interest to both agricultural professionals and anyone with an interest in where their food comes from. This combination agricultural show and trade fair is divided into four sectors: crops and plants; culinary products; livestock and breeding; and the services and professions based around agriculture.


And only about twenty days after the Paris International Agricultural Show, art lovers will have the opportunity of attending the Art Paris Art Fair, which is devoted to modern and contemporary art, with an emphasis on European creativity from the post-war period to today and the emerging talents on the international scene.
