    We spent an afternoon in the neighborhood. It’s busy and offers a great opportunity to pick up some souvenirs. The church is a popular attraction.

    One of the most famous streets in the world, and not just for shopping, since this is also the finishing stretch of Tour du france, and used for other events

    Built around 17th century and named currently 18th century. Interestingly, this is french for Elysian Fields, the resting place for greek gods and heroes

    This is one of my favourite parts of Paris. There’s a lot to see and do, but wandering out the island it’s easy to find quiet hidden spots that feel quite unlike the hustle and bustle of a major city

    The urban design idea here is to build a straight line of avenues and monuments leading west away from the Louvre. So you have the Tuileries, Arc de Carousel, Champs de L'Eysses, Arc de Triomphe, and then La Defense. Very bold. Best seen from the top of the Arc de Triomphe.

    I never get tired of visiting the covered passages, which were built in the early 19th Century in the middle of big blocks to develop the center of the blocks and to provide safe spaces off the dirty streets for shopping and eating. Most have been revived and are now busy. I love to admire the classic architecture. Vivienne is my favorite.

    Up above there is a wonderful linear park above street level stretching to the east for many block. Down below the arches have been filled in by specialty stores and galleries. A very artistic quarter and a great re-use of old rail line.

    This long street was developed centuries ago and you will find fine architecture from the 18th and 19th Centuries along it. Originally one of the streets that led from the market gardens outside of town to the city market at Les Halles, it later developed as a residential street with old apartment buildings and later still, upscale shopping. Lots of history here.

    The River Seine is one of the great river's of Europe and befitting such a majestic river are the quai's dotted throughout the path of the river through the city , these offer great views of the city's amazing architecture ,walking along the likes of Quai De Montebello in the Île De La Cité complex is superb ,you can get very close to the river itself ,some of the quai's are really historic ,beautiful pieces of architecture in their own right ,it's wonderful walking around the quai's of the city and well worth checking out if you're planning a holiday to Paris.

    I do recommend exploring this area, which has been working class, is in the midst of some change, lots of immigrants, but also some of the new gentry seaking affordable housing. On a steep hillside, so it is work to explore. Some big parks.

    When I first started visiting Paris nearly 40 years ago this street and parts of this area were a bit seedy ,years have eroded the reputation this street once had and nowadays it's a cool street to walk down with great cafés,pubs,bars and restaurants and some interesting sites ,latest visit to Paris saw my twin brother Stephen and myself visiting some of the great pubs along this street such as Hall's Beer Tavern and McBrides Irish Pub ,had a great time in those pubs and in and along this street which is most definitely well worth checking out if you're planning a holiday to Paris.

    It's a very long boulevard from the era of the guy for whom it is named. You will find a statue of the guy along it, as well as the major department stores. Lots of bank buildings and apartment buildings that have been converted to offices.

    Formed by the intersection of the Boulevard De Clichy ,Avenue Clichy ,Rue Clichy ,Boulevard Des Batignolles and Rue D'Amsterdam ,Place De Clichy is one of the few places in Paris were four arrondissement's meet being the 8th,9th,17th & 18th arrondissement .
    The centrepiece of Place De Clichy is the huge monument in honour of Moncey and surrounding the monument and making up this square are great looking buildings and an amazing amount of cafés,bars ,pubs and restaurants and both day and night this square and area is a hive of activity and is well worth checking out if you're in the area .
