Include these activities in your Paris Easter plans:
Re-discovering Easter through history in this fun and original way, you will search for clues, solving enigmas related to the history, architecture and the great historical characters that inhabited the different places where the hunt takes place. The reward at the end of the game: chocolate eggs for everyone!
2. Easter Services at Notre Dame de Paris (see top photo). Attend Easter Sunday services at one of the world’s most celebrated cathedrals. You’ll experience a Catholic service with Easter prayers and beautiful Gregorian chants on Easter Sunday.
There are also several Easter services planned for the Monday following Easter. Services are for the public and free - booking is neither necessary nor possible. You are advised to arrive early as Easter services fill up quickly. Be advised that all services are in French, unless the service is stipulated as an International service in which case both French and English are used.
Hit Fauchon(Metro Madeleine) for particularly spectacular chocolate Easter eggs, chickens and bells, and other concoctions. (In France there is no Easter Bunny – instead a church bell that has been blessed in Rome flies over the country dispensing Easter goodies to children.) Patrick Roger’s boutique on Boulevard St Germain is also usually host to some spectacular Easter creations fashioned out of chocolate.
