Paris

Île de France

 

We flew into Paris and got a taxi to the Hotel Regyn S, on Place d'Abbesses in the heart of Montmartre. This was the view from our room window by day ...

 

... and by night. Really hard to take.

 

Lynn really wanted to see La Grande Arche de la Défense, one of the newer Paris monumental buildings.

 

The escalators on the outside of the Centre Pompidou.

 

L'écute statue outside St Eustache church.

 

Typical Gallic understatement of Pont Alexandre III.

Avenue des Champs Elysées with L'Arc de Triomphe and, behind it, La Grande Arche de La Défense.

 

Luxembourg Gardens.

 

Church of St Sulpice.

 

You-know-what seen from Trocadéro, across the Seine.

 

Montmartre Cemetery.

Then we hired a car and set off for Giverny.
