In Paris the most hardened shopaholic but wise in spending money will fulfil their wishes: the most luxurious boutiques to shop seemingly anonymous, the rich collection of news will be put on sale in Paris from 11 January 2012. This is an important date to be able to be there in the early days of sales, when there is still a range of sizes, colours and patterns. To dedicate a large part of the budget to the shopping in Paris, you should choose to fly low cost. We suggest leaving only with a handbag luggage and return back with a trolley bought there and fitted with all of your new purchases made during the Parisian winter sales! Also find an accommodation in central Paris is very important to save money, so booking a bed and breakfast in Paris with bbparis.com, near the Galeries Lafayette or near the Champs-Elysees (two landmarks shopping in Paris) will be the best you can do to spend all weekend looking for whatever you wish to buy!

A free festival of cult films is held on the large lawn of Villete park.
To stay in the vicinity we suggest lastminute Paris, a selection of discounted accommodations. The theme of this year’s festival is ‘turning twenty’.
Many of the great filmmakers have wanted to depict this age, the most beautiful of all, but also the most tortuous and difficult. From golden youth to the spoils of youth, to revolutionaries, all the way to destructive rage, the festival explores different styles of cinema through this poignant theme.
From classics like the Graduate and Clockwork Orange, to lesser known films such as Cry Baby (John Waters) and Without Roof or Law (Agnes Varda).
The festival is an opportunity to reflect on youth; rest in one of the accommodations selected by lastminute Paris, B&Bs or independent studios that combine quality and low cost. In the outdoor cinema you’ll be in the company of high caliber directors like François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Ken Loach, Maurice Pialat, Leos Carax, Abdellatif Kechiche, Cristian Mungiu, Woody Allen, Sofia Coppola, and Jim Jarmusch.
Each one in their own way reflects on the fact that not only is twenty a beautiful age of recklessness but also an age that one harks back to for the rest of one’s life. The godmother of the festival is the actress Sandrine Bonnaire. Entrance is free and lounge chairs can be rented for 7 euros. Address: Parc de la Villette 211, avenue Jean Jaurès - 19° arr. Paris.

Nuit Blanche (in French) or literally White Night or All Nighter is an annual all-night cultural festival. The festival lasts from sundown until sunrise - from 7pm to 7am - on the first Saturday and Sunday in October.
During the Nuit Blanche, museums, private and public art galleries offer free admission to all, with the downtown core of a city itself (like city's train stations and in some amazing churches too..) being turned into a art gallery, providing space for art installations, performances (music, film, dance, performance art). Parisians can enjoy hundreds of artistic events, especially made to be seen at night. Search a room in a B&B in Paris to partecipate in the Nuit Blanche!
First launched in 2002 under mayor Bertrand Delanoë, Paris Nuit Blanche has become a hotly-anticipated annual celebration of all things art and culture in the city of light. Attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, White Night sees countless Paris galleries, museums, city halls, and even swimming pools open their doors all night to visitors-- with free entry.
My personal experience tells me to dedicate this visit to monuments as: National Assembly, the Old Royal Palace (La Conciergerie), Palais de l’Elysée the official residence of the President, the first town Hall. These are monuments not open to the public during the rest of the year. There is a good news and a bad one, I always start with the bad one: lines are very long so be prepared to eat a sandwich standing outside; you can take pictures inside the buildings.
This year, it has also been confirmed that the metro will be open until 2am for the night, with the line 14 open all night.
The major events planned this year :
Shaad Ali at the Gare de Lyon
Gi Dexin at Saint Sulpice
Pierrick Sorin at Gare de l'Est
Javier Tellez at the Eglise Saint-Eustache
Jeremy Blake at the Eglise Saint-Paul
Tony Oursler at Gare du Nord
Patti Smith at the Eglise Saint-Germain.
Patty Smith will be back in Paris after her recent great exhibition with a musical performance based on texts by Saint Francis of Assisi.
Saint Lazare will also be used during the night, with british duo Semiconductor and electrically-assisted tricycles will be available to get between the stations! The freshly-restored Tour Saint Jacques, a 63m Gothic edifice at Chatelet, will be illuminated by Chinese artist Gu Dexin. And the Tour Montparnasse will be the subject of a son et lumière by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda. Also, a bamboo stage will be erected in front of the Comédie Française at Palais Royal, where a troupe of opera singers from Guangzhou will be accompanied by projections by Hong Kong film-maker Johnnie To.
There are a few more details (in French only unfortunately) on the offcial dossier de presse Nuit Blanche by Paris’ Municipality wirìth maps, events and list of artists.
2binparis.com is a network made by almost 100 B&B in Paris : book a room and enjoy this event!
