Paris Day 2

I took a lot of photos on day 2 – it took me ages to edit these down! We started with a walk around Place des Vosges, which is the oldest planned square in Paris and one of my favourites. Those identical houses surrounding the square are so beautiful. If you have time, you can visit the Victor Hugo museum in the south-east corner, where he lived from 1832 to 1848. We then walked west through Le Marais (the old Jewish quarter) and admired some of the most beautiful architecture in the city alongside luxury boutiques and florists.

As the mid-morning coffee cravings kicked in we headed past the Louvre to Café Kitsuné in Palais-Royal. I had read that this place served some Australian approved coffee and we weren’t disappointed – the barista was Australian himself and he did a great flat white. Finally we strolled over Pont des Arts (one of my favourite views of La Seine), then back over onto the islands to explore Place Dauphine and the little backstreets behind Notre-Dame. That evening we went for dinner in Saint-Germain, but not before I took shots of some of my favourite Rive Gauche establishments – Odette and Café de Flore.
