This part of the Latin Quarter, south of the Pantheon (see previous posts), is in general less visited than the “Sorbonne area”, unless you are a scientific, professor, student… This is where you find a number of what is referred to as “Grandes Ecoles”, higher education establishments, ...

The metro station “Louvre-Rivoli” used to be the major one for visitors to the Louvre. It's on the first Paris metro line, no. 1, created in 1900. Since the pyramid entrance with underground installations was created in 1989 it's rather the “Palais Royal – Musée du Louvre” station which is used ...

I have already blogged about some of the streets around the Parc Montsouris (see here, here and here) and also about the park itself (see here), but I made a new walk. As the wisterias were in full bloom (now some three weeks ago) it somehow made the walk even more attractive although the ...

I already posted about the Seine in flood a few days ago, but since then the water level has further increased (maximum soon reached?), so I just felt that I had to take some more photos. Here are some examples. The Zouave at the Pont de l'Alma is always a reference, although the statue ...

The love locks have left the Pont des Arts (see previous post here), new glass panels make it again possible to get an unabstracted view of the Seine. The city is now renewing a previous tradition to expose art on the “art bridge”. Under the title “La Passerelle Enchantée“ (The Enchanted ...

Like more or less every second year, there is at present a “Monumenta” exhibition at the Grand Palais. The idea is obviously to occupy the space under the beautiful glass roofs of the Grand Palais (see previous posts) in a monumental way. I have reported about the three previous ones – see here, ...

Not quite every ear, but I have already reported on the “Fête de la Musique” a number of times, see here, here, here and here (and even here on my previous blog). So, I'm not going to repeat the history of this annual event when music is played in each corner, in each bar, on all the streets of ...

The “Jardin de Plantes” is worth a visit for many reasons – its gardens, a number of museums, a little zoo… I already posted about it several times. If you look for a really peaceful moment I would recommend a visit to what is a bit separated from the rest, the Alpine Garden.

I'm sorry being a bit late about this, but there was a promotion for linen at Place de Vosges (see previous post) which lasted for about a week – the last day was yesterday, Sunday June 5. You could find as well flax plants – in bloom – as finished products.

It has been raining - in Paris, around Paris - for a number of days. The Zouave statue on the Pont d'Alma serves as some kind of measuring instrument for the Seine water level. When his feet get wet, normally the streets and footpaths by the embankments have to be closed.

Street art and photographer JR has managed to make the Louvre pyramid (more or less) disappear. June 27 the pyramid will again be back to normal. If you are interested in JR and his work, you can go here. Visiting the “Cour Carré”, actually the older part of the present Louvre, built during the ...

If you visit Notre Dame (see previous posts), I have already recommended that you take a look from the back side, which I feel offers a much
