Paris Postings…What’s Up This Season in the City of Light!

Paris is always beautiful. Paris has an excitement that permeates the air. Whether we’re strolling through the Luxembourg Gardens or visiting the Christmas Markets, there’s just nothing that’s better than a spin through this city.

Where else can you find a 1000 year old church (in which an emperor was crowned) built on the site of a 2000 year old church, which was in turn, built on the site of a temple to Jupiter? Oh, and just to make things a bit better, just around the corner is a place that serves the best “n’importe quoi” (anything) for dinner served with a glass of absolutely marvelous wine….Enough said. A picture is worth at least a few words. So, let’s post some from Anthony Bianciella, our favorite traveling photographer (and the one who will  be chronicling our holiday trip, making DVD’s of the highlights for everyone, and also offering one-on-one photography lessons, tips and help for people taking their own shots.)

Maybe just a little stroll before dark? Or if you’re too tired, a bike ride!

From whatever angle, the Left Bank is pretty close to perfect.But, what truly sparkles with beauty is Paris over the holidays. Not a lot of tourists. Lots and lots of lights. Christmas tree displays, mile long holiday marekts in every corner of town, decorations and different sorts of tress by every monument…

Even in the Chocolate shops! Look! It’s true. This Left Bank shop is a real gem, and quite beautiful over the holidays in particular (when chocolates won’t melt).

Next up…Gourmet treats ONLY served during the holidays!

    It sounds like Paris is even more charming during the holidays! I’d definitely like to try some of those chocolates! Lovely pictures, too.

    • It is! It’s one of those places where every season has a different face. Holiday time is really very special. Imagine having Champagne and oysters outside on a dock of the Seine river, near a fire pit, with music playing.
