What on earth are we telling you about a supermarket? Well, Monoprix is not just any old supermarket; the fact that they are the only ones to have a supermarket on the Champs Elysées should tell you something for a start.
Although you wouldn't know it (because the food hall is hidden in the basement) Monoprix could be the clever option if you want to eat something quick and healthy at lunchtime. Their refined selection of prepared sandwiches, tarts and snack food is a cut above the rest, has several vegetarian options and makes an effort to be healthy too.
Also, if you get past the lunch section, you'll see that they have a wide selection of traditional French produce that would make great presents for taking back home with you. Plus, there's a range of imported goods if you're craving your favourite biscuits from back home.
They also have a smaller store (food only) just down the road at 122 Rue de la Boétie. Check them out!
If you love photography, then you will surely love the exhibition “Camera in Love” which is hosted by the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume from June 13 to September 24, 2017.
The exhibition showcases the works of Ed van der Elsken who is widely considered one of the most famous Dutch photographers of the 20th century.
The show aims to reveal the poetic nature of Ed van der Elsken, his solidarity with others and the empathy that he showed towards all living creatures. It spotlights a large selection of his iconic photographs which he captured in the streets of Paris in the 1950s and on his trips to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and Tokyo in the 1960s. It also features some of his books and excerpts from his movies.
