"Paris is always a good idea" Audrey Hepburn
Paris in the spring time is heavenly!
There is so much to do and see in Paris, this post is only part 1 of 2. I'm only going to focus on the Louvre and Eiffel Tower since Paris, especially the Louvre Museum, are in my opinion, sensory overload!
I have never visited or been to a place where one can simply relax and see so much in such a relatively small area by sitting or wandering the beautiful streets and gardens, especially Les Jardins de Tuileries
As you can see, there are people everywhere just talking, having lunch, and drinking in the gorgeous sceneryThe Eiffel Tower is as magnificent to view in person as it is in photos!
"Keep good company - that is, visit the Louvre"
Here is a view of the Palais Royale and louvre from one of the upper floors of the museum:
My favorite section of the Louvre are the Victorian style rooms
I absolutely loved this mural in this sitting room!After visiting the Louvre two times, I'm convinced that an entire week there would not be enough time to see everything! I did get to see my first original painting by my favorite artist - Claude Monet:
I also learned that I absolutely love Francois Boucher and Jean-Honore Fragonard
The ceilings almost everywhere were mesmerizing!
The stained glass and statues are absolutely fabulous! So much to see and very difficult to decide what to take photos of since everywhere you look there is so much. It is also a little dark in some areas and a lot of the art work is encased in glass (understandable), so taking photos can be a little challenging in some areas of the Louvre.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful week my friends. Please feel free to leave a question or comment and remember your e-mail address will not be published.
