Find the not to be missed sights of Paris
Discover contemporary art at the Cartier Foundation! Since its installation in Paris in 1994, the Cartier Foundation has played a role as a patron and enchanted lovers of contemporary art through an exhibition program that varies throughout the year. Located just ten minutes walk from your Campanile hotel, the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art opens the doors of its building, designed by architect Jean Nouvel, and invites you to discover and meet people. From design to painting, photography, video and fashion, the Cartier Foundation is a real creative space, but also an opportunity for the general public to discover works that, often exported, enjoy international fame, as well as major artists such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Takeshi Kitano or Malian photographer Malick Sidibé. Because art has no age, the Cartier Foundation also offers a program of activities designed specifically for families and children. Thus, young and old can discover and apprehend art and current exhibitions. Proposed every weekend, these courses allow children, as parents, to let their imagination escape and discover or rediscover their artistic fiber, drawing on the most beautiful sources of inspiration.
The Parc des Expositions, Porte de Versailles, can still surprise you. When Paris abandoned its fortifications, it was decided to turn the little crown into a greenbelt. It is in this context that the Porte de Versailles, one of the oldest gates in Paris, welcomed the Parc des Expositions. From your hotel Campanile, join the park for a large salon.In addition to the fair dedicated to the home and innovation, the Exhibition Center welcomes every year calves, cows, pigs, the time of the Salon de l’Agriculture. Then it rearranges its pavilions to make way for the Book Fair, then the Paris Manga Sci-Fi Show, where it is possible to admire crazy haircuts and surreal costumes. A futuristic look is to be found at the Auto Show, presenting the prototypes of tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, as well as concepts that may not get any further. The exhibition center itself is constantly changing. It transforms to show a greener face, including the installation of new green spaces - a way for the center to better welcome the 6 million curious people who flock there every year.
The Palais des Congrès, king of entertainment. The Palais des Congrès was built in the early 1970s, on the outskirts of Paris. The location chosen, where the former amusement park Luna Park stood, suggested that entertainment would be the order of the day. And it is! With its amazing architecture, which is dyed with colors in the evening, the Palais des Congrès hosts shows of all kinds. From your hotel Campanile, it takes only a few minutes to reach the Porte Maillot and the Palais des Congrès. After a moment of shopping in the mall, head to the gym to work out, or the snack bar, to gain strength. If the beautiful screens of the cinema complex are calling you, make a beeline for its cozy red armchairs. The four amphitheatres of the Palais des congrès have seen, over the years, hit musicals like Notre-Dame de Paris or Romeo and Juliet, internationally renowned singers such as Ray Charles or Liza Minnelli, and famous dance acts such as the Russian Bolshoi dancers and Chinese artists from Shen Yun. On the way back, make a detour to the Champs-Elysées to admire the astonishing spectacle of everyday artists: the Parisians.
