1- Marie Curie, une femme au Panthéon
Such a majestic monument to some of France’s greatest heroes. History buffs will love it. Architecture lovers will admire the perfection. We have loved the exhibit on Madam Curie, one of the legion of French heroes. Her life story is on show, books, handwriting, personal mementos. The crypt is moving and extraordinary - our favorite the vault with the ashes of Dumas, Zola and Hugo. Voltaire’s crypt is great too. A must on any visit. A lot for people of all ages to enjoy.
Panthéon Panthéon Place du Panthéon 75005 PARIS until March 4, 2018
Pancake Day - la Chandeleur - another French feast! The 2nd of February is Pancake Day in France, called la Chandeleur. It marks the end of the Christmas period coming exactly 40 days after Christmas and is a Catholic holiday, Candlemas.
Nowadays it's a family time most simply associated with eating crêpes, the delicious thin French pancakes. Chandeleur is celebrated throughout France as la fête des crêpes. A week or so before the date you start to notice supermarket displays of flour, eggs, jam, Cointreau, cider and Nutella and then you know Chandeleur is just around the corner. The region of Brittany is most associated with crêpes as a local speciality and it is from there that the tradition of drinking cider with them comes from. So these days no matter where you are in France at Chandeleur it's common to accompany your crêpe with a bowl of cider. (Yes, bowl not glass!)
Don't miss it
French food, French waiters, French decor
The restaurant La Fountaine de Mars is located not far from the Eiffel Tower, but it is far from a tourist trap. The food is authentic French, leaning towards that of Southwestern France. They have a daily plat du jour and a selection of desserts. Besides that Staff are great! and very attentive.
The French are known for their food for a reason...
