My first trip to Paris! (August)

We start in the Latin Quarter where I stayed



The Pantheon!



Some of the oldest streets: Ille Saint Louis



To the Orsay!

Beautiful, realistic Rodin sculptures!

It's all about stained glass at Saint Chapelle



I took the RER out to Versailles
Guess who slept here?


Too-famous view from Notre Dame

Around the edge of the Eiffel Tower District you'll find the Rodin Museum



Napoleon's tomb is also nearby!


Oh Camps-Elysees!












I take the metro back to the packed Louvre

But camera ran out of memory
Next stop the Marais

What a charming little street!!




Picasso Museum (these pictures actually were not aloud)
What a handsome old house!



More of the Marais

There's also a cool neoclassical addition on the back!

This is part of a panorama I can't piece together. Maybe later.

Thanks for taking your time to look! Merci beaucoup!

Hey, cool snaps! When I went to Paris last, I was staying way out by Place d'Italie, in the 13th arrondissement.

Anyway, great pictures, keep up the good work.

Stunning photos. It's always great to see pictures of Paris, one city that I do miss a lot. I wish I still lived close enough to hop across the ditch, but alas.

I was in Paris the first week of August. Looks like you went to many of the same sites I did. I stayed in an area about a 15 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower, close to Ecole Militaire metro station. I'd recommend to anyone going to Paris, to go to the top of the Arc de Triomphe - fantastic view of the city. So much to see. Food was almost always good, but expensive for me. I'll definitely go back one day.

True, very expensive food. That's why some cheap Brits just drank gin and tonic with Pringles in the hotel courtyard They pestered and managed to get free glasses and a bucket of ice too.

I get wet looking at Paris photos. So inspiring.

That is hysterical.
