Paris’ top free guide



Exploring Paris’ little wonders for free

Free history and art in Paris’ museums

The Carnavalet Museum tells the history of Paris, from its distant origins to this very day. Using various media (manuscripts, models, paintings, furniture, sculptures, artifacts and photos), it describes the city’s transformation from the village of Lutèce to the grand metropolis it has become today. Covering the Medieval, Renaissance, French Revolution, 19th and 20th century history of the city, the museum reproduces the capital’s evolution and tells the story of its inhabitants, from the most humble to the most renowned. Touching and educational, it offers the visitor the chance to inspect incredible items of history from up close. Get lost in time among Napoleon’s favorite case of toiletries, Émile Zola’s gold watch-chronometer, Marie-Antoinette’s personal possessions or even an originally furnished reconstruction of the room where Marcel Proust wrote his chef-d’ouevre “In search of lost time”. Those hungry for more should be informed that a number of free museums (like the Louvre, Orsay, Rodin, Centre Pompidou, Musée de Quai Branly and others) are open for free visits each first Sunday of the month, so get ready for many more hours of culture sampling without spending a dime.


Free music in Paris’ churches

Enjoy the sounds of the organ and the melody of chamber, jazz or classical music during the free concerts held each Thursday from 12:45 to 13:30 in the Eglise de la Trinité on 3, Rue de la Trinité. After the concert, join the musicians in the nearby bistro for a quick snack and a chat about music and world harmony. For a free sample of 40 church bells playing in divine unison, pass by the Carillon de Beffroi (close to the church Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois at 4, place du Louvre) each Wednesday between 13:30 and 14h for an improvised gig of 18th century popular pieces or contemporary tunes written especially for the instrument. The classical Saturdays (20-21:30) and Sundays (16-17:30) of the Saint-Merry church (76, rue de la Verrerie) will grant you the opportunity to get lost to the otherworldly sound of its 3-centuries old organ…


Free open-air cinema by moonlight

One of Paris’ ultimate August events, Cinéma au clair de Lune treats you to some great movie classics, projected for free under the starry skies of Paris’ parks and gardens. The 14th edition of Cinema in the moonlight will introduce you to some cult flicks broadcast in Montmartre, Place des Vosges, Parc Montsouris, the Trocadero gardens and the square René-Cassin. Don’t forget your picnic basket and your checkered blanket and see you on the grass by moonlight!


Free skills with Paris’ open-air cooking class

All food aficionados will be thrilled to know that they could rival a real “chef étoilé” after enrolling in one of the free cooking classes offered by the City Council and the French Federation of Amateur Cooks. Set outdoors in the context of Paris’ open-air markets, the classes are a pleasant, unexpected and educational way of acquiring a new skill. All classes take place in the morning and begin at 10am. As for the teachers, all of them are real chefs or professional tutors in different cooking schools across the city. Once you’ve reached the market, you’d start by touring the stands of the merchants in search for their best products, then you’d find your place behind the booth and – equipped with an apron – you will concentrate on the watching the chef work his magic. In the end of the class, you will taste the chef’s creation and once back home you could remake it all by yourself, because now that you’ve graduated, you will be officially called “chef”!

Free “smarts” in the legendary Collège de France

Dispersing wisdom to everyone willing to learn, Collège de France is an international institution of knowledge and a unique establishment of higher education, where professors (sometimes Noble prize winners of members of the French Academy) give free and open lectures to those considering themselves to be eternal students of life. Dating from the 16th century, the college’s primary goal is to “teach science in the making” and its university’s professors are chosen from a variety of disciplines, both scientific and humanitarian. The college’s motto “Docet Omnia (Latin for “It teaches everything“) matches its mission to dismantle preconceived notions and distribute the idea of free thought. So if you want some real training in classical French thinking, this is the place to get it. Even if you can’t manage to visit the halls of the college itself, you could still sophisticate yourself with its originally recorded podcasts, which you could download or listen for free on the college’s website.


Free sky watching with Les Nuits des Étoiles (The Night of the Stars)

Where do comets come from? What are the skies made of? Could you really wish upon a star? Poetic and scientific, these are some of the questions you would be asking yourself while admiring the starry skies during this year’s edition of Les Nuits des Etoiles (The Nights of the stars). For more than twenty years, this free summer astronomic festival offers a piece of heaven to more than 100 000 curious sky lovers. Popular, family-oriented and free, this grand manifestation aimed at the general public incites Parisians and visitors to spend a night beneath the stars and to discover the wonders of the heavenly vault by observing the constellations under the informed supervision of volunteering amateur astronomers. Watch out for falling stars as they might grant wishes…

Welcome to The Green House



A private museum of eclectic charm and avant-garde art

Mixing and matching old and new, modern and vintage, boldness and pureness, The Green House invites you to experience a playful and original home designed with lots of character and style.


Artistic, vibrant and contemporary, the apartment’s decor created with an unvarnished sense of liberty, adds to the apartment’s engaging profile and helps the space find its unique rhythm.

Located in the trendy district of Bastille-Marais, this stylish and comfortable 115 m2 duplex apartment offers 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms and toilets and a spacious and sunbathed living room broken into a few thematic corners.


Designed with ample open space and natural light in mind, The Green House’s rooms feel airy and expansive. Because of their openness, they are especially fit to incorporate art and other decorative accents such as the abstract and edgy paintings which adorn the lounge’s white walls and add drama to the space by creating a genuine gallery-style feeling.


The Green House’s ground floor is ample enough to host Bedroom 1 and 2, a bathroom with shower and toilet, the dining room and the lounge.

Breaking the furnishings into groupings to help divide the sitting room into separate thematic niches gives you the opportunity to choose your spot, be it the sophisticated library corner or the chill-out zone with the soft red sofa and the indigo vintage chairs.


Moderating outlandish pieces, such as the lounge’s wildlife animal rug, with simple, classic furnishings, like the vintage scarlet sofa, sparkles an engaging mix without watering down the space’s eccentric charm.


With an access to the patio, the second bedroom, located on the ground floor, offers a posh and exotic journey into the wild thanks to its décor of African masks, zebra bed covers and a stack of creatively mismatched suitcases offering a glimpse into the world of the global traveler.

The white staircase connecting the ground floor with the lower level takes you to the kitchen with the eating area and bedroom number three.


Probably the artsiest of them all, the third bedroom has a lot happening, starting with the challenging baby portraits displayed on a radically vintage, attention-stealing white brick wall.


Combining sassy stripes with idiosyncratic portraits, the artworks present in the kitchen enliven the space with a sense of color and energy without visually overwhelming it.


Rooted in the now, The Green House is one contemporary and innovative home bold enough to showcase a décor based on compelling contrasts and creative parallels.

Its jazzed up setting and fresh interiors sparkle with a particular kind of artistic energy meant to stimulate the stay of any bold aesthete who has chosen the apartment as their creative Parisian headquarters.


The artistic laboratory of The Green House is a fit match for those imaginative souls in quest for the Holy Grail of Inspiration…

The Green House vous ouvre ses portes



Entrez dans ce musée fantasque qui mêle charme éclectique et avant-gardisme !

Entre l’ancien et le moderne, entre lignes futuristes et touches vintage, entre audace et pureté, The Green House vous invite dans un intérieur ludique et original, au caractère affirmé et au style énergique.


Artistique, vibrante et contemporaine, la décoration de cet appartement crée un pur sentiment de liberté, suscite un véritable engouement et définit l’espace pour lui insuffler un rythme unique.

Situé dans le quartier branché de Bastille-Marais, ce duplex stylé et confortable de 115 m² offre 3 chambres avec 3 salles de bains et toilettes, ainsi qu’un spacieux séjour baigné de lumière et ses pôles thématiques.


Conçues dans un esprit d’ouverture et dans un souci de mise en valeur de la lumière naturelle, les pièces de The Green House sont spacieuses et inondées de clarté.


Elles peuvent ainsi servir d’écrin aux œuvres d’art et à d’autres éléments décoratifs comme les peintures abstraites et avant-gardistes qui ornent les murs blancs du salon et apportent de la profondeur à l’espace dans un authentique esprit de galerie d’art.

Dans le vaste rez-de-chaussée de The Green House se trouvent les chambres à coucher 1 et 2, une salle de bains avec douche et toilettes, la salle à manger et le salon.


Les différents regroupements de mobilier permettent un cloisonnement virtuel du salon, qu’il s’agisse du coin bibliothèque sophistiqué ou de l’espace détente avec le moelleux canapé rouge et les chaises vintage couleur indigo.


L’extravagance de certains éléments de décoration tels que le tapis peau de bête du salon est modérée par des meubles simples et classiques comme le canapé vintage rouge, pour former un cocktail réussi sans pour autant nuire au charme excentrique de l’espace.

Dotée d’un accès au patio, la deuxième chambre à coucher du rez-de-chaussée est une véritable invitation à une incursion chic et exotique dans la nature grâce à son décor composé de masques africains, de jetés de lit imprimé léopard et d’une pile de valises savamment dépareillées, parfaite panoplie du grand voyageur.

L’escalier blanc qui raccorde le rez-de-chaussée à l’étage inférieur vous emmène dans la cuisine et son coin repas, ainsi qu’à la troisième chambre à coucher.


Probablement la plus originale de toutes les pièces, la chambre à coucher numéro 3 a beaucoup de cachet, à commencer par les malicieux portraits de bébés accrochés sur un captivant mur de briques blanches, résolument vintage.


Entre rayures audacieuses et portraits singuliers, les œuvres d’art qui ornent la cuisine égaient l’espace de manière colorée et énergique sans toutefois le submerger.


Ancré dans l’instant présent, The Green House est un appartement contemporain et innovant, suffisamment audacieux pour arborer une décoration basée sur des contrastes fascinants et des analogies créatives.

Ses intérieurs gais et lumineux dégagent une énergie artistique bien particulière, censée stimuler les esthètes qui ont choisi cet appartement comme pied-à-terre parisien.


Véritable repaire d’artistes, The Green House saura accueillir les âmes imaginatives en quête du Graal de l’inspiration…

P comme Place



A hop-on / hop-off tour of Paris’ top squares

The meaning: Place = Square

The history:

Designed and erected over the centuries, Paris’ squares have become the stages of the city’s living memory. These huge “platforms” adding to the charm and harmony of urban space often take many different forms – from tokens of Parisian urbanism uniting avenues and boulevards to closed and calm refuges hidden away from the noise; from places of charm reflecting the history of a district to tiny squares, bearing the spirit of old Paris with its historic cafés and boutiques; from pretty belvederes watching over the marvels of the city to simple intersections honoring personalities from the world of art, science or politics… With more than 365 squares (and a list still expanding), the city of Paris showcases its squares ostentatiously, like a general proudly wearing the honorary medals on his full dress uniform…

History of Paris

The atmosphere:

A major contributor to the feeling of spaciousness, the huge number of public spaces interspersed throughout the city allows the visitor the chance to flee their urban surroundings and imagine themselves as the actor in a play set in a Paris of times long past… In this invitation to a historical and architectural journey, sightseers can take a walk through the magical extravaganza of Paris’ squares and hear the echo of their past.

The cultural difference:

In French, the word “square” stands to describe a small urban green space not large enough to be called a “parc” (where fields of grass are prevalent) or a “bois” (a green space with a more forest-like appearance). Following the pattern established in other European languages, such as Spanish (“plaza”), German (“platz”) or Italian (“piazza”), the French word “place”, on the other hand, is used to describe an English speaker’s equivalent for a “square”. In a nutshell, the French “square” will definitely not be called “a square” in English in contrast to the French “place” which would match an Anglophone’s definition of a “square” pretty accurately.

Paris diversite

The largest one:

Designed in 1755, Place de la Concorde is Paris’ largest square. Initially named Place Louis XV to honor the sovereign of the time, the square was renamed “Place de la Révolution” during the French Revolution. The guillotine was later erected here and it was on this square that King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were decapitated. Renamed Place de la Concorde in 1795 as a sign of reconciliation after the mayhem caused by the French Revolution, the square is now famous for the giant Egyptian obelisk which once marked the entrance to Egypt’s Luxor Temple. In 1836, King Louis Philippe had it placed where the guillotine used to stand during the Revolution. In 2000 French urban climber Alain “Spiderman” Robert, climbed the obelisk all the way to the top, using only his bare hands and no safety devices.


The oldest one:

Built by Henry IV to celebrate the wedding of Louis XIII and Anne of Austria, Place des Vosges is Paris’ oldest and classiest square. Located in the Marais district, this early 17th century chef-d’oeuvre was the prototype of all future European residential squares. What was different about it back then were its pretty identical red brick house fronts built over vaulted arcades erected on square pillars. If you were to walk the square’s surrounding galleries today, you would pass by Victor Hugo’s ex-home, a number of fine art galleries, a few restaurants and a bunch of musicians who please the crowds with their melodies…

Place des Vosges

The curious fact:

Honoring the memory of sculptor Pigalle, the famously “kinky” Place Pigalle created in 1827 and located just at the foot of Montmartre was famous for its “models’ fair” where painters used to seek inspiration and hunt for models – an institution which disappeared in 1910.


Not to be missed:

Looking for a truly unique square? Then how about going for something hidden, rare and “triangular” (Place Dauphine)? For a really cozy one, enjoy the cheerful village-like charm of Marais’ Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine, a preferred hub for chilling out and having a drink under the Chinese mulberry trees. Known as “the jewelers’ square”, Place Vendôme is the center of Parisian fashionable life and one of the city’s poshest locations famous for its deluxe hotels such as the Ritz. If it’s an animated spot you’re after, the pretty roundabout of Place de la Contrescarpe should be the one for you. This square, formed in 1852, is the epicenter of a very animated quarter which hosts many cafés famous for the artists who once picked them out as their favourite haunts. You are in an artsy mood? You can’t go wrong with Montmartre’s eternal classic Place du Tertre (“the square on the hill”) where art is always in the air with all the aquarelles, melodies, live shows and the simple joie de vivre which saturates the creative feel of the square…



Summer fun on the hill


Opt for a free game of pétanque in Montmartre

A symbol of the holidays, pétanque was born over a hundred years ago in the Southeast of France.


Especially conducive to the spirit of summer, today it is still a widely popular game open to everyone in Paris.

Not requiring any specific physical condition or equipment, this uniquely French sport creates a warm and friendly atmosphere for those playing which is why it is widely appreciated and loved by many.

Petanque 2

Like every summer, this game capturing the spirit of old Provence makes life in Paris somewhat sweeter, more festive and easier to enjoy…

Even though you might not have made much progress since your last year’s tournament (provided you’ve ever played a game before), you will soon come to know that playing pétanque is really not that much about the game itself…

Petanque 3

It’s about the emotion of sharing laughs with the mates while enjoying the clink of your ice-filled Pastis glasses or smoking the occasional cigarette, aiding you to momentarily forget all of your everyday worries…

Well… Got any better plans for the summer?

A great place for venturing into a new hobby or polishing an old-forgotten skill (namely, a free game of pétanque), Montmartre’s bucolic setting provides the right frame for some free summer fun on the hill.

Petanque 4

Hidden just on top of the butte, a stone’s throw away from the poetic Alley and Castle of Mists, the peaceful and quiet square Suzanne Buisson transforms itself into the ideal terrain for a game of France’s most emblematic sport by housing a pétanque field to make locals happy…

You will know a game is on once you hear the clack of balls and the clink of glasses.

Perhaps you too would like to join the players for a glass. Or even for a game? 

Before hopping on that boat, however, you should keep in mind that the losing party traditionally buys the next round of drinks, in this case – Pastis for everyone!
So stand up to the challenge and hope to win!

Square Suzanne Buisson

Summer opening hours: from 8h to 20h30 (from 9h at weekends)

7 bis rue Girardon, 18e

Métro : Lamarck-Caulaincourt

Coming soon: Living “la dolce vita” at the end of Italy’s boot…


Studios Paris’ private villas in the hearty Apulia region

summer italy wiki

Enthused by the spirit of spring, a season all about new beginnings, the team of Studios Paris has chosen to venture into a brand new enterprise of its own as well!

With the launch of our latest project – the construction of two private twin villas to be erected in Italy’s historic and authentic region of Apulia – we are just about to add another appealing asset to our list of already attractive rental possibilities.

A challenge in itself, the project of designing and building a celebrity getaway resort outside of France is the first investment of its kind for Studios Paris – and a precursor to analogous business developments in the future.

Based near Manduria, 2 kilometers from the sea, the construction project envisages the building of two twin villas erected in the middle of 3 hectares of olive groves – an unbeatable recreational resort providing the greatest lux of getting away from it all!

Located somewhere between the heavenly scented olive groves and the blue infinity of the Ionian sea (boasting some of the wildest and loneliest beaches in the world), your future “villa privata” promises to be the ideal place for a romantic or creative break away from it all…

For a genuine re-enactment of the famous “big Italian family” picture, you could rent both villas together for a double portion of laughter, good mood and summer fun!

Enjoy a truly authentic slice of Apulia’s life with our holiday villas resplendent with rustic charm.

Using your ideally located holiday home as your journey’s starting point, you can have the magic of Italy all to yourself.

Start your discoveries with Manduria and its magical local well mentioned by Pliny the Elder as far back as the 1st century AD. Named after the Roman historian, the well (whose volume never changed no matter how much water was taken out of it) can still be seen today exactly as described some 2,000 years ago, with an almond tree rising out of its center…


The wide range of exciting things to do in Apulia provides some fascinating possibilities for memorable day-trips away from your holiday villa as well. Visit Lecce, rightfully named “the Florence of baroque” (50 km away) or some of the other baroque villages like Oria (10km away) or go to the other side of the ‘heel’ to Monopoli. Explore the great port city and the labyrinthine old town of Bari (142 km away) or marvel at the enigmatic trulli of Alberobello (Unesco-protected cylindrical peasant stone houses with conical roofs) located some mere 67 km away from your Italian home. You may also simply choose to enjoy your 3 hectar private garden which features an original yet fully renovated ‘Trullo’ that you may use as an additional guesthouse.

For a short break rich in experiences and friendly encounters, take a short drive through Apulia’s charming authentic villages, drive past its roads flanked by olive trees or head straight to its gloriously sunny beaches.

Or feel like a true local while visiting one of the numerous small-town summer festivals – with a band performing live in the local piazza and heaps of delicious local treats sold directly in the streets, nothing could be more exciting than this scene from a romantic Italian movie streaming live…
