Our favorite podcasts and online concerts to travel to France with the family

We're all in the same boat right now: our teens are glued to their smartphones and the little ones have the fidgets. Looking for an escape? Let them travel without leaving their room! Give them a taste of future discoveries in France, like a visit to the Musée d'Orsay via podcast and online live concerts from French towns.

Watch an online live concert from the Philharmonie to the balcony

Craving public festivals? On some of our city's official social networks, you can watch live concerts. For example, the city of Montreuil bursts with melody during the "Musique au balcon": every day, from 8 pm, amateur and professional musicians play at their window or balcony. Accordionist Karine Huet got the ball rolling, followed by duo Hippooplan and trombonist Sebastien Llado.

For teenagers who are really into music, the Philharmonie has put a hundred concerts of electro, pop, indie rock, jazz or classical music online.

And with the Inrocks, you can follow (and listen to) an artist every day, from Malik Djoudi to Keren Ann via La Femme or Juliette Armanet.

Walking around the Musée d'Orsay via podcasts

The cat from Edouard Manet's house, the little rat of Edgar Degas the Opera or Blanche and the Butterfly Hunt of Berthe Morisot—the characters of some of France's most famous works come alive. These guides leap out of the canvases of the Musée d'Orsay to take the children (from 8 years) on imaginary adventures through podcasts. You and the kids can listen to it (in French) every night before falling asleep.
