Paris Is Always A Good Idea...

Audrey Hepburn was so right...Paris is always a good idea!
My favorite vantage point of Notre Dame...the gorgeous little garden in the back.
When we were planning our trip to Greece, it just so happened that we were able to score a great deal for flights on Air France...the only "hitch" was that we had to stop over in Paris. In the category of "as long as we are there", we decided, why not spend a few days in Paris?
 My sister-in-law had not been to Paris since she was in high school, so I played the role of tour guide. I showed her all of my favorite places and I also discovered a few new favorites (including the Paris flea market which I am posting about on Wednesday). 
Since there is no shortage of blogs dedicated specifically to Paris (I read many of them myself), rather than telling you every little detail of our trip, I am simply going to share a few of my favorite photos.  I hope you enjoy them...
The Medici Fountain ~ Jardin du Luxembourg
Sunset over the Seine
Saint Chapelle
The the way the light is hitting it here.
La Tour Eiffel
Even in October the Jardin du Luxembourg is filled with gorgeous flowers.
 Musee D'Orsay
Musee Rodin
Grand Palais

Île Saint-Louis

Even the corner florist is a photo op...
My favorite "souvenir" store
We covered A LOT of ground in four days and we had the aching feet to show for it! But, it was well worth the pain. I am already trying to figure out when I can go back again.
Anyone want a personal tour guide?


If you would like me to help you plan a trip to Paris (or anywhere else!), just e-mail me. I can get great deals on hotels ranging from the charming left bank hotel we stayed at on this trip, to one of the five star "palace" hotels, with many added amenities such as upgrades and room credits. I can also book your tours, transfers or day trips.

 Right now, there are some amazing deals available at one of Virtuoso's boutique properties near Saint Germain...e-mail me to book your room and receive a free upgrade and other extra amenities.
