Some may think of Paris as a pretty blond girl.
Others may connect the name to dreams about bohemian life and springtime.
The French Capital is known for all the Icons like La Gioconda and the Eiffel Tower among many others.
Our trip to Paris starts at the western end of Champs-Elysees with the spectacular Arch of TriumphAt the eastern end of the avenue the wonderful Louvre is a must and first "have to" during a stay in this city.The entrance through the Pyramid (ref Da Vinci Code ) opens a world of beauty that you may need almost a lifetime to discover, but I recommend you to look up and see all the fantastic ceilings above the paintings and sculptures.
Delacroix´s "Liberty Leading the People" from 1930 makes me think of the musical Les Miserables and Do you hear the People sing The Greek sculpture Venus de Milo and the Borghese Hermaphrodite. are two of the most stunning artworks to be seen from all angles.
Leaving Louvre you take a jump to the Modern art museum with artworks like Wassily Kandinsky´s Red, blue and yellowBut Paris without Mode and Fashion would be nothing for urban people. A stroll (with shopping?) at Rue du Faubourg St Honore is mandatory.From there to the bridges (remember Sept 1st and RuneE) you have to pass the statue of Jean dÁrcThe Bridges over the river Seine and the river banks have been used in many paintings, books and movies from and about Paris. Here you se the editor at the oldest bridge Point Neuf (the new bridge from early 1600) with the Eiffel Tower far west.The next photo is taken from Pont St Michel towards Pont Notre-Dame. Notre Dame is a Gothic Cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité and has its main entrance to the west. It is the Cathedral of Paris and the seat of the Archbishop of that city.At the Montmartre butte the second best known but most beautiful church can be found. Basilica Sacre-CæurThe painting at the roof above the altar is absolutely different from the ones at the entrance of Moulin Rouge not far away.Of course you have heard about the musical Moulin Rouge, but to se the legendary Parisian Cabaret with costumes of feathers, shine stones and sequins you have to go here.This ends this Saturday urban life at Paris with a glass of white wine and a salad nicoise at Place Pigalle
