Les journées du Patrimoine ( open days to show the French heritage) take place every year on the 3rd weekend in September. They are taking place this weekend. It gives the opportunity to the public to see monuments and sites which are not usually open to the public and the visits are free.
In Paris, you can see Le palais de l'Elysée, where the president works and lives, l'Hôtel de ville: the townhall, Le Palais Garnier: the opera house, and a lot more.
In Bordeaux, you can visit Le grand Théâtre; in Aix en Provence, you can go to some monuments and sites where Cézanne worked and in Nice you can discover La grotte du Lazaret: a prehistoric cave overlooking the sea.
And of course these open days are happening all over France.
We are still enrolling for this academic year so why not come and meet some French tutors at Alliance Française de Bristol et Bath: for more info...
