The Real Paris

Notre Dame seen from the left bank of the Seine

Our three hosts show you around this exciting international capital of food, fashion and art.

Olivier Picasso, grandson of the famous artist, takes us to visit Cite de l'Architecture and to Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, where some of the world's leading contemporary artists have exhibited.

Renowned chef Philippe Legendre ventures away from the centre of town to shop for objets d'art, and shows us Fromagerie Quatrehomme, where Madame Quatrehomme hand-picks France's finest cheeses.

And finally hip DJ and designer Cecile Togni introduces us to her hair dresser and the oldest American bar in Paris, where the Bloody Mary was invented.
