This morning we would be heading to my absolute favorite museum
in Paris, The Musee D’Orsay. A converted train station, opened in 1983
to house art from 1848-1914, which holds a grand collection of the Impressionism art of Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Van Gogh, Cezanne.
A gorgeous turn-of-the-20th-century restaurant on the middle level,
Musee D’Orsay, that is stunning. I have never had the pleasure of a
lunch here, but promised myself that the next visit I will splurge and have
a meal in this stunning restaurant.
After spending a great part of the day in the Orsay, we decided to walk
back towards our hotel and just take in the sights and sounds of this
Fontaine Saint-Michel, Place Saint-Michel, Paris, constructed in 1858-1860
during the French Second Empire by architect Gabriel Davioud.
It’s a very congested and crowded square. It’s a great meeting place
for locals and tour groups.
After hours of walking the streets of Paris on our 7th day, we were
exhausted and I will say my ankles were screaming for help, but Paris
has a way of erasing anything the least bit negative and keeps you wanting
more. But my body was aching and tomorrow was another day, so off
to our wonderful little hotel, where a good nights sleep would be so
More tales and photos of Paris to come – Au revoir.
