The French capital is known to be the city of romantics but also of culture lovers. Paris still arouses as much interest for the French but also for foreigners. More specifically, according to the observation made by the online travel booking platform, eDreams, it is the Spaniards who book the most plane tickets for exhibitions. The Italians come in second place among nationalities, followed by the Germans. Indeed, eDreams has observed a drastic increase in the purchase of plane tickets abroad, during the “Matisse” exhibitions from 1e March to May 29, “Basquiat x Warhol” from April 5 to August 28, 2023, and “Ramses II and the Gold of the Pharaohs” from April 7 to November 11, 2023.
TWO OTHER CAPITALS
Regarding popular destinations for French art enthusiasts, several major European cities are appealing. This is the case of Vienna, capital of Austria and artistic cradle. According to eDreams, between 2022 and 2023, reservations from France increased by 50%, in particular for the exhibition dedicated to the Austrian master of symbolism, Gustav Klimt, available until May 29, 2023 at the Belvedere Palace.
Norway’s capital, Oslo, has also gained interest among the French with the exhibition “Nobel Peace Prize 2022: Nobody Plans to Give Up”, available until April 16, 2023 and presented in the context of the war in Ukraine. Flights have thus increased by 31% between last year and this year.
