Paris vous aime Magazine
The Maison de Balzac, Honoré de Balzac’s Paris home from 1840 to 1847, has a new scenography that takes it well beyond a place of pilgrimage by offering keys to the great author’s work. Visitors will discover Balzac’s personal possessions in the study, kitchen, and bedroom: his coffee maker for working late into the night, sketches, engravings, and original books and periodicals that will all inspire youto reread The Human Comedy. Admission: €6-€8.
Recommendation: Take a break at the new tearoom with breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower.
