There is much to see and do in Paris…it would take weeks and weeks to see it all. There are monuments everywhere and there are museums for virtually every subject: from French Impressionist to Modern Art to well, just about everything…!
We finished the day back at Cafe Francis with its incredible view of the Eiffel Tower. Here we celebrated Monte and Aleta’s 30th wedding anniversary with food, wine and the Eiffel Tower which seemed to be sparkling just for them!
Have I mentioned there are a few shopping opportunities here? Everything is here…from delicious little macaroons on Montmartre….
We then took the Metro to the Bastille Plaza. There we found a local market and bought some wine, cheese and grapes. We took them to the Place des Vosges for a nice little picnic! Place de Voges was built during the time of Henri IV during the 1600s and is a square with identical buildings on all four sides. Today, those buildings are full of little shops on the ground floors and common tenants above. The inside plaza is a park while Parisians come to relax. When we got there school had just gotten out so the park with filled with kids just hanging out before heading home.
