Orchestrate a Parisian Picnic in the Park. What you will need: A picnic blanket, picnic basket or set with glasses, plates, napkins and a knife, an assortment of foods and drinks from a local grocery or epicerie – cheeses, baguettes, wine, frois gras, various cold cuts like French Salami and a macaroon or 2 or 3. Where to go: anywhere on the seine waterfront with sounds of beautiful French language and French chanson music coming out of the nearby restaurants or street musicians, Pont des Arts (Lovers bridge), the Left Bank (waterfront) of Seine between Petit Palais and Notre Dame or on the Right Bank of Seine, between the Latin Quarter and Eiffel Tower, or along any tree-lined boulevards, petite neighborhood gardens and famous gardens like the Luxembourg or Tuileries. TRY L’Appero App: delivered picnic baskets or  single bottles of wine to you, anywhere in Paris and delivered the old ‘skool’ way – on a bike!

4.    Classical Music Concert at La Saint Chappell, for some romantic and therapeutic musical reflections amidst the rumblings of the city. This gothic architectural jewel is located on the Isl. de la Cite and holds over 100 concerts through the year; featuring works of the classical music repertoire. You cannot find anywhere the warm atmosphere in the St. Chapelle Church. Concerts daily start at 7pm and 8.30pm. Arrive early. 8 Blvd du Palais 75001 Paris METRO: Chatalet MAP
