April 2011 Paris Events
Take a deep, glorious breath in because spring is in the air this month! The cherry blossoms will be come out and shower the City of Light in cascades of pink. There is nothing like springtime in Paris! As well, there are some fantastic events this month in Paris! I’m pulling for nice weather for the 40,000 runners taking to the streets for the Paris marathon – be sure to get out there and root them on! The highly anticipated Manet exhibit opens at the Musée d’Orsay this month, not to mention the Stanley Kubrick retrospective at the Cinémathèque. There are great events to keep you both indoors – and out – this month!
