Festival of Jewish Cultures

The Festival of Jewish Culture in Paris offers an incredible cultural program each summer. The celebrations are aimed at discovering the richness and diversity of Jewish culture, combined with a spirit of openness, dialogue and intercultural exchange. The festival was created in 2005 by the Cultural Action Directorate of the Unified Jewish Social Fund. The Festival of Jewish Cultures offers a diverse program, including concerts, theater plays, conferences, exhibitions, screenings, and workshops. The festival provides a platform for local as well as international artists and musicians to showcase their talent. The Festival of Jewish Cultures is included in the official calendar of the City of Paris. It’s opened each year by Michel Legrand, a world-famous composer, and musician and one of the most renowned artists to ever come out of France. The festival hosts various exhibitions and art displays about the history of the French Jewish community. Last year, the exhibitions focused on the liberation of Jerusalem. The Jewish community of Paris has been shaken by recent spikes in anti-Semitism and acts of terror, prompting many Parisian Jews to emigrate to Israel. This unique and lively festival helps to reinforce Jewish identity and courage in the face of adversity. It’s also an opportunity for the community to connect with their neighbors in the city.


Israeli Film Festival

The Israeli film festival is an annual event hosted in Paris. All films are translated except for the short films and show a variety of Israel's finest films.

Eiffel Tower Guided Climb

Rating

The Eiffel Tower Guided Climb gives you the opportunity to climb the Eiffel Tower with a guide who will share with you the history of the tower and point out the surrounding sites as you get to the top. You won't have to wait in the long elevator line and you will definitely get a good chunk of your daily steps in. There may be a line for the stairs, but this is still much shorter than the elevator line.  Your guide knows the 704 step climb isn't easy and has prepared several stops along the way to share fascinating stories and legends about the world's most visited landmark. During the first section of the clumb, you will learn about Gustave Eiffel, the young engineer, entrepreneur, and builder of the magnificent tower.  If you're worried about bringing kids on this tour, many people who reviewed this tour said it wasn't a problem and their kids loved it. Because of the breaks between levels, the climb isn't as daunting as it sounds. On the second level is where you feel a real sense of accomplishment. You can gaze out at the breathtaking views and enjoy the birdseye tour of the entire city. Your guide will tell you about the districts and monuments such as Les Invalides, Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, Montparnasse, and Champs-Elysees. This tour is a once in a lifetime experience that will leave you with a sense of accomplishment, insight on the tower's history, and many wonderful photos to show friends and family when you get home.

Paris Charms & Secrets

Rating

Paris is a city filled with rich history and culture, but there are so many hidden facts to some of the city's top attractions and stories behind almost every corner. The big Saint-Sulpice Church, for example, was once a hayloft, and the building where the president works, the Elysse Palace, was once a gambling house. Thanks to the research made by the team at Paris Charms & Secrets, hundreds of strange and personal stories that were hidden somewhere in old books and documents, have been brought to life again. Did you know that there is a link between Al Capone and the Eiffel Tower? Or that the Eiffel tower had a younger sister? Paris is a mysterious city and on this tour, you will learn some of the top mysteries and the stories surrounding them. When you take a tour of the Louvre, you might hear a few details about the architecture, but at Paris Charms & Secrest, you will hear a story about the museum's greatest scandal. The goal of this tour is to provide you with the lesser known, hidden stories and details, that you won't find anywhere else.  This tour is done on an electric bike because you travel more than 20 km and this is an effortless way to cover as much of the city as possible in four hours. There is no other tour that travels this way, but it's perfect for staying out of traffic, entering protected areas, keeping the group at the same speed, and being able to enjoy some fresh air. By now you've read a few of the hidden facts that the historians at Paris Charm's & Secrets dug out for you, but there are plenty more stories waiting to be told. If you want a fascinating, slightly unconventional tour that takes you to the places less traveled and tells you the hidden secrets of Paris, this tour is for you.
