And for all of you readers flipping through the French dictionary, Ile in French normally means island; in this case Ile de France refers to the city of Paris and all of its outlying suburbs. Beginning on September 5th and running over a month, the multi-venue festival has become a favorite of Parisians and culturally savvy tourists. For this year’s edition the festival will take place at some 30 or so picturesque sites, from well-known public theatre houses to off-the-beaten-path churches and museums. The festival tackles a diverse offering including world and classical music, jazz and contemporary talks (in French, bien sure) and workshops.
Culture hounds in Paris for the festival should take a look at the New York Habitat apartments in Paris highlighted below:
