The Musee d'Orsay houses world class art. It's an amazing place. I took notice to just about all of the artwork being in gold frames and hung on black walls. So striking.
Standing across the street from the Musee d'Orsay, you look at the Seine and on the opposite side you see the Louvre. We enjoyed some runs along the Seine...so nice!
Walking through the 6 and 7th arrondissements I was in awe over the architecture, the doors and the door knobs. Do you have a favorite?
This is the doorway to Ralph Lauren's restaurant and stores located on Rue de St. Germain. I walked inside and in true Ralph Lauren fashion the place was stunning.
All the cars seem to be small in Paris, and when I saw this man driving his car into the courtyard I understood one reason why. Many of these doors open to either a courtyard leading to several apartments or as a path to drive/park one's car before entering an apartment.
Dinner the first night was truly a treat, as we went to the fabulous Le Pre Catelan. With each bite I took of Frederic Anton's culinary creations, I felt like royalty!
Tomorrow's post is about the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame and a few other goodies!
Have you been to Paris? Are you as smitten with the city as I am?
