1- Degas, Danse, Dessin
The exhibition explores the friendship between Degas and Valéry that lasted more than twenty years and resulted in an essay published by Editions Vollard in 1937, titled "Degas Danse Dessin". The essay conveys a poetic, fragmentary image of the painter’s personality and his art, and a kind of meditation on the creative process. The archival documents on display in this exhibition shed light onto these men and their social interaction. There are numerous drawings and Valéry’s famous notebooks reveal the importance of these works, which were, for both, the crucible of their art. The exhibition links extracts from Valéry’s essay to the graphic works, paintings, and sculptures of Degas.

Le Pont Mirabeau
We like this bridge so much ....because of its amazing architecture. That's why we recommend everyone who visits this bridge to watch the two giant green metal statues holding the extremity of the bridge arch. And also because it enables a magnificent view of Eiffel tower and the seine , where you can capture very nice photos. We advise everyone visiting Paris to visit this bridge
Where we like to go best
Fromageries like this are the best places for people that want to know about cheese and discover new things. If you are looking for french cheeses beyond the traditional, this is the place to go. Staff is bilingual and very nice, you can stay there and they will solve all your doubts, and if you are traveling with your cheese you can ask them to vacuum seal it, so your experience is covered.

One of our favourite places
La Manufacture de Chocolat d'Aain Ducasse
A very cool little chocolate factory owned and created by Alain Ducasse, French Michelin star chef. The chocolate is expensive, but the taste is exquisite. The manufacturing process can be seen thru windows from the small purchasing area. There is a selection of sample chocolates available for tasting which allows one to get an idea of just how good the produce is.
