Le Paris de La belle époque
Saturday January 25, 2020
An stunning afternoon, from 1:30 PM or 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM for a charming moment that will “dazzle” you !
A little history
The « Belle Époque » constitues of a period of about 15 years during which, in spite of the inequalities and the strong social tensions that were present, what remained most was optimism, the intensity of cultural life, and the certainty of progress.
Paris is of course at the center of this phenomenon. The city, that the philosopher Walter Benjamin establishes a few years later as the “capital of the XIXe century”, is just as well the XXe century that reinvents itself.
It is in this privileged environment, visited by millions of tourists from European capitals and the United States, where flourishes the “Belle Époque”. It is therefore a strong idea to make Paris an “entertainment-city”.
Discover the Beautiful places where all of Paris would meet and enjoy leisure time at the start of the 20th century: the Art-déco brasseries, covered passages, theaters… and taste a cup of tea or hot chocolate in one of those most prestigious places.
