A "date" tinder? "Being romantic" is a word you don't understand? Take a short walk to the Petit Palais and the Museum of Romantic Life, it will inspire you. Because the romantics, the real ones, those of the 19th century, have a place in it. An opportunity to discover two exhibitions-events that offer a vast panorama of the capital during the romantic years, from the fall of Napoleon to the 1848 revolution. More than 600 works - paintings, sculptures, costumes, art objects and furniture - plunge the visitor into the artistic, cultural and political ferment of this period. Through an immersive scenography, the tour invites you to take a stroll through the capital and discover the emblematic districts of the period: the Tuileries, the Palais-Royal, New Athens, Victor Hugo's Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, or the Grand Boulevards des théâtres. The great names in literature - including Honoré de Balzac, Victor Hugo, Alfred de Musset, Théophile Gautier - are gathered in salons with other artists to discuss their creations. A lovely trip through the literary salons of the early 19th century, and a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful garden and tea room. A magical moment in Paris!
