“There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached. Paris was always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought to it.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
I’m a late, and somewhat reluctant, convert to the magic of old Paris but I must confess that despite the clichés and the ever-present crowds of tourists, there is still an irresistible fire burning under its surface. That is why after a prolonged (and regretted) absence from this blog, I am now compelled to share some of my favourites sights of the city.
So here it goes, some of my favourite things and places in Paris:
- Stained Glass Windows at Notre Dame Cathedral
- “La Fiancée de Belus” by Henri-Paul Motte at Musée d’Orsay
- Statue of Diderot in Place St-Germain-des-Prés
- Medici Fountain at Luxembourg Gardens
- Musée des Lettres et Manuscrits
And let me finish by giving my readers a couple of tips for their next visit to Paris….
- Stop by “Un Dimanche à Paris” at Cour du Commerce Saint André for delicious sweets and chocolate
- Remember that Parisian cats have only contempt for tourists trying to take a picture
