Paris – Steps away from the Louvre

We can buy a fresh baguette and croissants at the baker in the morning, sit in a street café and browse though Paris Match magazine, watch the passers-by and eavesdrop on French conversations. Then we turn back and check out the Mona Lisa at the Louvre. We dawdle along the Champs Elysées and marvel at the Arc de Triomphe. We climb the Eiffel Tower, take in the arresting view and, with a little bit of luck, grab one of the coveted spots in the Jules Verne Restaurant and experience gourmet pleasures from a dizzying height.
