The Chocolate Museum in Paris
First step: head to the Chocolate Museum where we offer you a fun, convivial, and creative activity. Don’t worry, it’s still delicious ! Here, before tasting, we create, imagine, and salivate around workshops that will undoubtedly appeal to both young and old. Located in the Grands Boulevards district, the Chocolate Museum offers workshops during the month of April to make your own chocolate bunny.
Patrick Roger Chocolates
To finish this chocolate itinerary, we suggest you visit one of the most popular chocolatiers in Paris: Patrick Roger.
Patrick Roger is art through chocolate. Best Craftsman of France in 2000, this chocolate sculptor stands out for his avant-garde vision. He breaks the traditional codes of neighborhood chocolate shops and offers a contemporary vision. His shops take on the appearance of a real museum and his creations are exquisite, both visually and gustatorily.
For this Easter season, Patrick Roger has concocted pretty black chocolate sculptures filled with praline fry-ups. Are you drooling? Us too! Go and delight yourself with his splendid Easter creations.
Our favorite? His deliciously adorable little Easter hedgehog.
A cultural activity for Easter weekend
After this gourmet break, head to the Sainte-Chapelle.
A true jewel of the art of stained glass, discover this emblematic Parisian place!
On April 18th is the International Day for Monuments and Sites, a great opportunity to visit the fabulous Sainte-Chapelle. Just a 7-minute bus ride from the hotel, step into this Gothic cathedral and let yourself be transported by the myriad of colors offered by its 1,113 breathtaking stained glass windows filled with history.
Located on the Île de la Cité, the Sainte-Chapelle was built in 1248 under the order of Saint Louis, wanting to house the relics of the Passion of Christ that he had acquired. This construction confirmed the power of the Kingdom of France and offered it religious legitimacy.
Since then, the life of the Sainte-Chapelle has been eventful. Closed to worship and deprived of its relics from the Revolution onwards, used as a storage place for the archives of the Palace of Justice and even as a prison for Marie-Antoinette, this cathedral is full of fascinating historical anecdotes that we invite you to discover…
