Three Worthy Distractions in Paris

Three worthy fall distractions in Paris:


1. The Cirque d’Hiver Bouglione: 110 Rue Amelot 75011 Paris, France                       01 47 00 28 81

October-March:  Daily at 2 pm and 5:15 PM

As much spirited drama as possible to pack into two hours. Adults or children will be astounded. Animals and humans are featured.

2. Sunset on the steps of Basilica Sacre Coeur

The view, the music, the atmosphere! Join a multi-national crowd sitting on the cement steps in front of Sacre Coeur, and make new friends while singing Hotel California or whatever the music makers are playing on their amped guitars. Free. Find a small table and an espresso in Montmartre. Dine.


3. Attend a late night movie in the Latin Quarter. Pick your decade, film and language for all are available here. Check the Pariscope guide for times and locations. Easy Rider is cool even after all these years. Reminder spoiler: Iconic American film—everybody dies in the end.

  1. Not off the top of my head. If it’s travel advice you seek try the Rick Steves Travel web site. They used to have a section called Road Scholars that included notes from travellers. I have another piece on Paris which is more of a traveler’s tale which is coming this week. Please check back in a couple of days. Thanks for reading!
