Visiting Paris after the Great Pandemic - Maybe


Recommended Posts

It is true that when  you live you somewhere you tend not to visit the  places that are the reasons tourists come to your city. During the short lifting of restrictions in Europe last summer many friends  were tourists in their own countries for the first time in many years: going to galleries and museums, visiting historic  places, that would normally be filled with foreign tourists. That is one of the glories of Cremona, not that many tourists, but still a  beautiful and  historic place, famous I understand for the dairy farms in  the surrounding countryside. I believe it also has a museum of some kind and someone famous made violins there long ago? :)

Probably because it is (was) always clogged with tourists...;)

absolutely, but Notre Dame was also as the Louvre or the Musée d'Orsay. Those 3 are very popular within Parisian, the Sainte Chapelle is not.

I wonder why? It is a magical venue for live music.

Le Musée de la Musique, an enviable collection of musical instruments, with several Stradivari and also some finds (some forms), and among other violins also the 1742 Alard violin by Del Gesù, probably the best preserved (although not very well exhibited ...).

A ne pas manquer!!

You could also ask for an appointment to meet Jean-Philippe Echard, he seems very willing to show "his" collection, as he states here:

 

 

I will contact Echard and see if I can visit him.
