A bit of nostalgia

For Parisians looking for a bit of nostalgia for the "Belle Epoque", or for tourists who want to experience a contrast to the French capital, try a stroll around here on a Sunday. These C19th passages are housed in the north of Paris, around the grand boulevards to the Palais Royal. There are shops, galleries, arched glass covers, previously lit with gas, and where would you find cupcakes on the weekend, or make adjustments to a dress. Far from the bustle of the boulevards, passages allowed past centuries to do their expensive shopping calmly and without worrying about rain or bad weather, and sellers leave some things outside for people to look and touch. There are very old shops, crafts, antiques, delicious pastries (expensive!), music stores, old stamps or coins exotic countries. Large stores such as Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, the French English Court, have meant that such passages have disappeared , but from the metro Strasbourg Saint Denis to Palais Royal some are still open and you can almost go back to the last century when walking through passage by passage . The Galerie Vivienne, the Passage of Perron, the Passage Brady, the Passage des Panoramas Jouffroy passage which houses the Grevin Wax Museum are good examples of nineteenth-century Paris.

Heart of the city

The first "arrondissement", or division of Paris, is the heart of the city. It is the town hall, hotel de ville, something is always happening, blood donation, political campaign, a demonstration, in summer big screens to watch the football and rugby, and in winter there is public ice skating, and you only have to rent skates. Also in this district are the banks of the Seine where there are pet shops, flowers, and Paris Plage, the artificial summer beach on the banks. A little more inside, large type stores are English Court of the Rue de Rivoli, the BHV was once a hardware store and now sells fashionable clothes, and below you can still find nails and hardware as sold 100 years ago. Walks in the Louvre, touristy but lively, the largest museum in the city, the most beautiful, located in the former palace of the kings. The Halles, a modern shopping center with fashion brands and young people who come just to get together. And the Place Vendome, luxury limousines and palaces. And at night, it's fantastic.

Rent a bicycle

Oh Paris - you walk the city without stopping, you visit and when you go back you love her more. On my last visit the weather was divine so I went to Fat Tire Bike (' http://fattirebiketours.com/paris') at 24, rue Edgar Faure (near the Eiffel Tower) and rented a very comfortable bicycle with a basket. It was a blast, I stopped here and there and walked the two banks of the river from end to end. Riding down Las Ramblas, Sena is like riding on a bicycle path fairy tale. The city looks different, you don't have fatigue, it's the best of the best and you feel a real Parisian.

La ville que j'aime

Paris was the most beautiful place I had ever seen. There was no building, bridge, or church that did not have illuminating detail. I was definitely inspired in many ways, yet the architecture and sculptures took my breath away and gave me a feeling I cannot describe. I literally fell in love with this city.

It was awesome!

I decided to hit all the major spots of Paris in only 3 days! It was quite a workout... But I managed to see the Louvre (nearly killed me after walking around its halls for more than 6 hours, but it is so worth it!), visiting the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, the Paris Catacombs, and a couple of other museums! It was a whirlwind but it was awesome!

The 5th arrondissement

Paris is divided into districts called "arrondissements", numbered from 1 to 20, which in turn define different city neighborhoods, although in some cases an "arrondissement" can have many neighborhoods or there can be a neighborhood that is halfway between two "arrondissements". This is the case of the famous Quartier Latin is located in the 5th arrondissement, but does not extend over the entire district. The 5th arrondissement is just south of the Seine and is a central neighborhood because of its geographical position and its concentration of activities. In the area around Place Saint-Michel there are tourists who walk by the charm of the narrow streets, Notre-Dame, shops, bookstores and cafes, several universities such as the Sorbonne and Jussieu are nearby.

Sun rise at paris

Paris is my home town. If I feel home sick, I close my eyes and remind the morning on the city from my window. Before I left, I took this picture. More than an inspiration, this is picture is my " Paris ".

A short visit to paris!

Paris, France, is a very known international city. I liked being there. It has various touristic sites,clean,wide,and beautiful scenery. One look to the multinational visitors, and wishes peace prevail in the world. That humans, whatever their interests or political belief are. could live in harmony? A dream hoped.
