D Day sites: american sector

D Day sites: The American Sector

On 6th June of 1944, the largest naval battle in history occurred in Normandy. With more than 155,000 soldiers, 14,000 war ships and thousands of airplanes, the Allies fought to liberalize France from the German occupation in the World War II.

What to see?

D Day sitesBest known as D-Day, it was what many consider the turning point of the war. Combating the German occupation, the Normandy region became a home base of sorts for the units of the Allies. The American units, which had a huge role in the battle, were established in what is now named “The American Sector”, composed of some beaches and villages.

Many consider Omaha beach the most important one. It is here that the Americans landed and faced their first battle in hopes of liberating Europe. The Americans also landed, due to some miscalculations, in the Utah Beach. These two beaches are close in proximity, and in both locations, you will find many memorials, bunkers, and war remnants.

Colleville-sur-Mer - Cimetière américain de Colleville… IntercomAnother important place was the small town “Sainte-Mère-Eglise”, located in the heart of the airborne operations, this village served as a key place that proved vital to stop the German reinforcements. Also widely know for being the location where the airbornes were launched from.

 

6 kilometers (approximately 4 miles) away from Omaha beach, you can find the “Pointe du Hoc”, a cliff used by the American forces as an attack point.

The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial is a large cemetery where more than 9000 fallen American soldiers are buried. It serves as a memorial from France to honour those who died for the liberty of the country.

How to experience?

D Day SitesThe American sector of Normandy has many stories throughout history to tell. From ParisByM, we recommend to take a guided tour to not miss any detail of the largest naval battle in history. In addition, many parts of the Normandy regions has memorials, museums with real war machines and iconic places which were a key to the victory.

Feel free to discover how the Americans helped liberalizing Europe through the feelings: the horror of war, the strategy and the euphoria of the victory in 1945.

Normandie, Normandy, etretat cliffs

Étretat

Étretat is a commune in Normandy (North-East of Le Havre) best known for its chalk cliffs. Very similar to those which can be found in Dover, these cliffs soar above the gravelly beach and form natural arches and complex formations.

The Cliffs

Normandy, Cliffs, Daytour, France, etretat

Cliffs of Etretat, Normandy, France; photo by Jarrod Castaing

Built as a simple fishermen’s village, Étretat is now one of the most renowned and beautiful beach resort in France: thanks to its white cliffs, the shingles and the natural arches, the town is the perfect destination for tourists from all over the world.  The Étretat chalk cliffs are made of different varieties of chalk and rise from 230ft to 300ft above the sea level.

The most unusual and interesting formation is, without a doubt, the so-called Needle (in French, “Anguille”), which rises 70 metres above the sea: an underground river and the natural erosion created, throughout the years, these natural structures, which are now the main attraction of Étretat and one of the most impressive and magnificent natural landscapes in France. Walking along specific trails, you can enjoy vertiginous routes with sensational views over the ocean: interestingly, you can recognize these cliffs, the arches and the “spires” from countless paintings by Impressionist artists like Boudin, Courbet and Monet, who were attracted by the breathtaking and unique landscapes.

Also, the cliffs were used as a special setting by the writer Maurice Leblanc, in 1909, for the novel “The Hollow Needle” (in French, “L’aiguille creuse”), which features one of the most famous character in literature, the gentleman thief “Arsène Lupin”.

The Beach

etretat, etretat cliffsThe gravelly beach, surrounded by the cliffs, is well protected from wind and tides: it is one of the favourite beach resorts in France and tourists from all over the world come there in order to relax and enjoy all the beautiful landscapes that can be found; however, during winter time, the beach regains its “wild” form. Gravel and stones are necessary to the preservation of the beach, since they protect  it from atmospheric agents.

A long walkway-dam called “perrey” divides the beach from the village: it used to protect Étretat from dangerous tides. Besides, the old sea front has been destroyed during World War II in order to better defend the coast.

The Village

etretat cliffs, notre dameThe small village is full of tiny cafés and cosy restaurants. However, the most interesting part of the city is what can be called as the “Old Town”: there, you can find  the impressive church of Notre-Dame, built in the XII century and now historical monument. The Norman Gothic style and the “lanter-tower” highlight the uniqueness of the building: moreover, the Roman façade makes the structure even more characteristic, underlining an amazing mix of cultures and architectures. Close to the church, you can also find a war grave, the “Étretat Churchyard”, which contains 264 Commonwealth and one German burial from the First World War.

clos lupin, etretat cliffsIn Étretat, you will have the chance to find several  beautiful châteaux, manors and villas: first of all, the so-called Clos Lupin, in rue Guy de Maupassant (interestingly, another artist who spent most time in the town…): the house, where Maurice Leblanc used to live, is surrounded by gardens and flowers (the name “Lupin” comes from the flower called “lupines”, in French “lupin”). The house is now a museum, where you can find interesting Lupin-style enigmas. Then, you can find the Manoir de la Salamandre, a typical old regional house, similar to those that can be found in the Pays d’Auges, an area in Normandy: it is a great illustration of the architecture of the region. Finally, you can also take a look at the Villa Orphée, built by the composer Jacques Offenbach: from there, you will have a beautiful view over the cliffs.

Last but not least, Étretat is also known because of the “White Bird” affair, where two pilots, in 1927, tried to make the first non-stop flight from Paris to New York: however, after the departure, the biplane disappeared in the ocean.

How to get there

etretat cliffs, impressionismÉtretat is about 50 minutes by car from Honfleur, via Le Havre. You can easily go there by bus (from 1 to 2 hours), starting from Le Havre’s “gare routière”, adjacent to the train station.

Top 3 Souterrains in Paris

The Top 3 Souterrains in Paris

Paris offers as much to discover overground as it does underground and I am not talking about its famous Metro system, which by the way was the first subway system in the world. Today you can find 18 mysterious metro stations that are not being used anymore. Besides these underground attractions we are presenting to you the Top 3 Souterrains in Paris.

1. RéseTop 3 Souterrains in Paris rvoir de Montsouris

The first of our top 3 souterrains in Paris is the Réservoir de Montsouris in the 14th district of Paris was built in the years from 1868 to 1873 by the engineer Eugène Belgrand. As one of the 5 reservoirs of the Capitals it provides the water for about 20 % of all Parisians. Besides its practical use as storage for clean water it has also gained the nickname “Cathédrale d’eau” (Water Cathedral) due to its unique architecture and its majestic pillars. Up until 2001 anyone was able to visit the Réservoir de Montsouris but after new safety standards were required the reservoir had to close its doors to visitors. Only in 2014 during two days (journées de patrimoine) the “water cathedral” opened again for visits. The reservoir has two floors each sized 60 ooo square meters and fits a maximum of 202 000 cubic meters of water to secure the water supply of Parisian households. From the outside one can barely guess whats going on inside this water reservoir. It is covered by a large field of grass and flowers and all that is above ground are two small resembling buildings that really do not indicate the size and importance of the reservoir.

2. Les Catacombes

Catacombe, Top 3 Souterrains in ParisOne of the most visited attractions in the french capital can be found underground. The catacombs of Paris were created in the 18th century to relieve the overcrowded cemeteries within the City. Today, bones of more than 6 million people are buried in the ossuary. When visiting the catacombs at Denfert-Rochreau Station you will find these bones carefully piled on each other creating a sort of artistic appearance. Only after Louis-Étienne Héricart de Thury from the Paris Mine Inspection Service transformed the unorganized piles of bones  that it became a real mausoleum. Since then in 1810 the catacombs have been open for visits up until today with only a few short breaks. Today this one is one of the top 3 souterrains in Paris you can visit every day but make sure to buy your fast track ticket online to skip the queuing on site.

Reserve your tickets here. (site in French)

Les Catacombes de Paris – 1 Avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy, 75014 Paris

3. Les ÉTop 3 Souterrains in Parisgouts

“The city below the city” This term comes from the use of actual street names and house numbers that were placed underground in the sewers. So, there is quite literally a second Paris underground. The first sewer system was established in Paris in 1370 under the “Rue Montmatre”. You can follow the history of the sewers and visit the sewer museum at the Pont de l’Alma. The accessible part extends to a 500 meter path underground where you can discover the historic water cycle of Paris and many machines of which some are still in use. As the oldest and still existing sewer system “Les Égouts” earn their place in the top 3 souterrains in Paris.

Nightlife Districts in Paris

Certainly, party venues are to be found throughout the city but still, some districts are packed with bars, clubs or cafés to enjoy Paris’ nocturnal atmosphere. Here is an overview of popular nightlife districts in Paris.

Le Marais

nightlife districts paris

In the 4th arrondissement of Paris, the Marais neighborhood is known for its great offer of nightlife venues, especially for the many gay and lesbian clubs and bars such as Le Tango. But there is something for anyone!

As the main Jewish neighborhood of Paris, you can find several restaurants or snack-bars in the area, for example L’As du Fallafel selling the best Fallafel of Paris! Why not grab a snack before spending a cool night at the CUD Bar? This bar is mostly frequented from the early morning on since party people come from other clubs to enjoy the rest of the night at the CUD which makes it one of the most popular late-night spots in the Marais. Enjoy dancing to pop and house music but be careful if you don’t want people to get too close – it’s going to get hot in there!

If you want to spend a more relaxed night, try the Lizard Lounge. They sell American food like burgers and pancakes in a stone cave. There is a dancefloor where you can dance to house, hip-hop and funk music and you can enjoy small live gigs on Sundays.

Latin Quarter & St-Germain

In this area, 5th and 6th arrondissement, are popular because of the old-established cafés such as the Café de Flore or the Café Mabillon where Parisians love to have dinner and drink a glass of wine. Still, especially the Latin Quarter offers a lot of restaurants, pubs and bars since it has been the students’ district for ages. Thus, this area is perfect for those who wish to spend a relaxed night over a couple of drinks in cosy bars. For example, there is the Cavern Club – an old English pub. Or what about the vaults such as the Caveau de la Huchette? In any case, you will certainly find a cool location around Rue Mouffetard and Place de la Contrescapre! Just have a look around and pick the bar you like.

Montmartre & Pigalle

The best cabaret shows in Paris, nightlife districts in paris

When you’re in Paris don’t miss this neighborhood. It does not only offer the world-famous cabaret the Moulin Rouge but much more. Since Pigalle is one of the red-light districts of Paris, this is one of the trendy nightlife districts in Paris – a very lively area at night with bars, concert halls and clubs. For instance, you can find venues like La Boule Noire where you can enjoy rock music. La Machine du Moulin Rouge combines a bar, a club and a live venue on three floors. The main dancefloor used to be the Moulin Rouge’s boiler room – unusual interior guaranteed!

Bastille

An area playing an important part in European history, this neighborhood used to be home to the families of craftsmen and turned into a trendy area in the 1990s. There is something for everyone – no matter what kind of music you’re into. For example, you can spend your night at a cool bar such as the Wild West bar Red House with its rustic interior and its selection of rock, punk, funk and electro music. Or why don’t you try Le Réservoir? Listen to soul, jazz, latino, rock or French pop music! Dining, dancing or just having a drink – do what you feel like! On weekends, you can even join the jazz brunch.

nightlife districts in paris

République & Oberkampf

At some point, the Bastille neighborhood was “replaced” by République and Oberkampf, meaning that it is now one of the trendiest nightlife districts in Paris. You can find all kinds of nightlife venues there. Do you feel like relaxing in one of the armchairs or cozy sofas in Le 114 listening to rock and pop music? Their slogan says everything: “It’s just like home, but better.”

Le Bric à Brac attracts a young and cosmopolite target group fond of hip-hop and electro music. Why don’t you go there for a drink during their happy hour from 6 to 9PM? In the afternoon, customers can use the small library or watch projections of documentaries.

On top of that, the concert venue Nouveau Casino is known for the city’s liveliest club nights. So, what are you waiting for? Join the fun!

The Catacombs

Bored to death of the same old ordinary paths, of touristic sightseeing and well-known landmarks? Thanks to the Catacombs, you will experience the thrill of underground haunted tunnels, along with the unusual  and breathtaking beauty of old Parisian skeletons.

the catacombsThe Catacombs are one of the most gruesome and macabre sights in Paris. Full of endless underground tunnels  packed with skulls and bones, they represent the solution for aesthetic and hygienic problems due to the overflowing cemeteries during the XVIII century.

Built in 1810, the Catacombs contain a great number of exhumed bones, which are stored in lines. A narrow stairway will lead you down 130 steps  to the tunnels, where you will have the opportunity to reach the barely illuminated and eerie tunnels. Then, you will have the unique chance to walk through the 1.5 km underground tunnel  where millions of skulls from Parisians lie. The tour takes around 45 minutes.

The catacombs have been very important during the WWII: there, since 1944, the Résistance used to meet and to plan attacks, far beyond  Nazi control. Interestingly, nowadays thorughout the catacombs you may also find thrill seeking cataphiles, who wander through the tunnels and look at the lines of skulls as if they were in a sort of amusement park: however, differently, if caught, they are fined!

Halloween Paris 2016, the catacombs

commons.wikimedia.org

This labyrinth, which contains bones from the 11th to the 19th century, has been built following the examples of Rome and Naples. The abandoned quarries, now used to house skulls and bones, has been packed to create space for new districts after numerous complaints about the risk of infection for the inhabitants, caused by the old Cemetery of the Innocents (close to Saint-Eustache, in the area of Les Halles)

One of the most intriguing and interesting attractions in Paris, the Catacombs have been visited by famous people such as Napoleon III and the Emperor of Austria. Take a walk through the narrow tunnels and explore the underground area where the dead rest in peace and the thrill seekers look for excitement!

Bastille Day

Bastille Day

History

Bastille Day

Credit: Jean-Pierre-Louis-Laurent Houel

Bastille Day, or the French national holiday, commemorates the end of the French monarchy and the beginning of the French Revolution. After years of economic struggle and overwhelming hunger, the French commoners decided to rebel against the lavish spending of the monarchy and the growing socioeconomic divide between classes.

On July 14th, 1789, the fed-up bourgeoisie stormed the Bastille prison to protest the unjust rule of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette. This successful revolt by the people of France marked the beginning of the French Revolution and the shift from absolute monarchy to republic.

How to Celebrate Bastille Day in Paris

The capital of the French Republic, Paris offers a number of fantastic ways to celebrate the French national holiday. Large public events featuring food and dancing are offered all night long and many attractions offer extended hours and free admission. Check out our list of where to celebrate Bastille Day in Paris!

Military Parade

On la fête nationale, the iconic Champs-Elysées becomes a patriotic symbol of French national identity. Visitors can line the streets from the Place de l’Étoile to the Place de la Concorde to see the members of the French armed forces march, fly, and ride through their capital city. The parade starts at 10:10am, but be sure to get there early for the best views!

Free Performance at the Opéra de Paris 

On July 14th, enjoy a free ballet performance at the Opéra de Paris. Featuring the works of choreographic legends Justin Peck and George Balanchine, this captivating matinée is a great way to start your Bastille Day celebration! The free show starts at 2:30pm, but space is limited, so get there early. You can find more information at the  official site of the Opéra de Paris.

Fireman’s Ball

Fitting the party theme, the fireman’s ball is an annual favorite among Parisians and visitors alike.  On the nights of July 13th and 14th, head over to one of the numerous firehouses in Paris for a night of dancing in the City of Light! Beginning at 9:00pm, you can dance the night away until 4:00 in the morning each night for free, although most venues will ask for a small donation to the fire station.

How to walk the walk like a Parisian, shopping in paris

How to walk the walk like a Parisian

While accommodations and sights are a vital part of your Parisian vacation, there are a few other considerations that you need to keep in mind before your trip. The most important of these things is to walk the walk like a Parisian and not looking like an obvious tourist.  There are numerous ways to transition into the air of the Parisian persona.  We’re going to break it down into three categories for you: the look, the air, the food.

The Look

Rule number one: leave your brightly colored, branded clothing at home. The French embrace the simplicity of neutral colors and don’t feel the need to advertise the brand of clothing they are wearing.  They let the clothing and its quality speak for itself.  There is no need to advertise the brand you are wearing.

You don’t have to bring your best pieces with you but dressing nicely is some of the best advice we can give you. Your clothing should be prepared to take a stroll through Jardin du Luxemburg, a visit to the Louvre or hold up to the street style of an outdoor café.

Scarfs are the best accessory you can bring with you. They’re versatile and allow you to change up the same basic outfit. Make sure you bring broken-in, comfortable shoes for the day (you’ll be doing more walking than you thought) and save your heels for dinner. When it comes to your purse or bag, having a bag that zips up and isn’t easy to break is extremely important. It makes it ten times harder for you to be pick-pocketed when you bag is zipped up tight.

The Air

Fasion, Parisian, Style, How to walk the walk like a Parisian

We’re not talking about the literal air of Paris her, but the persona that the Parisians have.  They’re confident, serious and they’re never lost.  While everyone hopes to obtain these attributes, it’s pretty easy to fake it until you make it. The way you hold yourself is a key aspect of looking like a Parisian, shoulders back, chin up, don’t slouch: any place you are this will immediately make you appear more confident.  Looking as if you are not lost even if you are, gives the air that you are not to be messed with or targeted.  The best advice for this category is to keep your head up.

The Food

The French take their food very seriously.  There are a couple of big no-no’s when it comes to food, dining and eating in Paris.  Time moves differently in Paris, there is still the hustle and bustle of big city life, but there is also the slow relax demeanor the French are famous for.  There is no need to eat on your way somewhere and to go coffee is only for transport.  Food is meant to be thoroughly enjoyed, thus you need to take time and care while enjoying your food.Le Loir Dans le Thièire salon de thé

Dining in Paris has its own etiquette. Forget what you know and embrace the change. Unlike those who were raised in the States, the French hold their fork in their left hand and their knife in their right hand. Resist the temptation of switching your fork to your right hand.  They say the knife should be held as an extension of your hand. Use the knife to push food onto you fork.

All that delicious bread served with you meal is meant to clean your plate when you have finished your meal. It’s also a great pre-dinner munch.  Make sure you break off just enough bread for a bite and then place the rest off to the left side of the plate on the table. There’s no need to rush while enjoying a meal in Paris, or anywhere in France really.

So, slowly sip your wine and embrace all there is about walking the walk like a Parisian.

Imagine being able to see all of Paris’s main monuments and attractions in the span of a mere few hours. Not only that… but you won’t break a sweat.

Riding a segway is one of those things that might make you feel a little bit like a silly tourist… but the fact of the matter is everyone should feel jealous of you. Not only can you go insanely quick on one of these beauties. But the simple mechanics of a segway will make you feel a little bit like a super hero flying around town.

How does a segway work?

A segway is simply a machine that is designed to keep itself balanced up right. The built in gyroscope ensures that you will not fall over when riding and allows you to control the direction of your movement simply by leaning your body in the direction you would like to go. The further forwards you lean your body… the faster you will go. The more backwards you lean the faster you will break or go in reverse. It’s really that easy! After a few moments practice with your tour guid you will be a Paris segway tours expert. Your guide will ensure that you are up to speed on all important safety information. Follow his instructions and you will have no problems!
