agoda.com, one of the fastest-growing global hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today offers a selection of Paris's most beautiful art-inspired hotels for the Paris Autumn Festival.
The Autumn Festival – Festival d'Automne à Paris – is a lively celebration of international contemporary arts staged in iconic venues across the French capital. Showcasing the City of Light during its most picturesque and temperate months, the festival gives travelers the opportunity to enjoy modern dance, music, theater, cinema, and the visual arts in the birthplace of Bohemia.
A diverse program of more than 350 performances stretches from late September through December, with more than 100,000 visitors set to attend. Historic venues such as the Louvre museum, The National Opera House and the Orsay Museum play host to events, giving visitors a chance to experience modern art and culture juxtaposed against classic Parisian settings.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Festival d'Automne à Paris. Highlights include a showcase of Indian cinema, live son jarocho music from the Gulf of Mexico, a dance performance by prolific French choreographer and dancer Cédric Andrieux,and '±0', a play by Christoph Marthaler inspired by trips to Greenland exploring themes of 'cultural and environmental adaptations.'
As one of the world's top destinations, Paris also offers myriad experiences off the arts circuit, from climbing the Eiffel Tower to exploring the tunnels of the Catacombs. Travelers visiting during the autumn months can also enjoy culinary events and activities associated with harvest season, not to mention the picturesque color change of autumn leaves in Paris's parks and gardens.
