Cite De La Musique

One of the most attractive and under exposed options for travelers to Paris is the Cite De La Musique. Once your hotel or vacation rental in Paris has been secured and you've arrived in the City of Lights, visit the Cite De La Musique early in your trip and let it provide a soundtrack for the rest of your sightseeing. 

The Cite De La Musique is a sprawling building designed by architect Christian de Portzamparc that hosts over 200 concerts yearly in Paris. Technically, the building is a “venue for art and life”, and it certainly is located ideally for such a place, perched on the lush greens of the Parc de la Villete. The venue has posted world-famous acts from all genres, from popular to classical, and has a partnership with historic and prestigious European concert halls. However, the Cite De La Musique doesn’t only cater to well-established superstars; it welcomes and encourages the up-and-comers of the world, as well. La Cite even features its own resident Ensemble Intercontemporain, a group dedicated passionately to premiering new musical works while preserving the important traditions of 20th century music. 

The Cite de la Musique is worth a visit even if a concert isn’t going to be seen. Travelers can walk from their paris vacation apartment rentals to the venue and lounge at the Harmonia Mundi bookshop or grab a bite to eat at the Café de la Musique. Also, being located in such a scenic park, the venue attracts many people who are simply looking for a leisurely stroll. 

Whether someone is traveling from a short term rental Paris, or from their long-time Parisian residence, there are many transport options available to access the venue. The Line 5 underground train reaches the Cite de la Musique, and bus lines 75, 151, PC2 and PC3 also cruise by the scenic spot. 

With incredible acts such as the Fleet Foxes heading to the venue in the next few months, summer in Paris will be throbbing with the musical pulse of the Cite de la Musique. Any traveler looking for a profound concert-going experience, or just a leisurely walk through a scenic landscape, the Cite de la Musique is a must-see destination in the heart of the World's loveliest city.
