Well Paris ,you never get tired of seeing it!!!

Yeah hard to come up with a title heck, Paris is eternal, I am Lucky to have worked there for almost 10 years and now visit at least once a month. This past thursday was no difference a walk on it is sublime. What can I say millions have not said it already.

I started my day early from my closest train station in Auray, Morbihan, Brittany where the parking is free. Took a TER Bretagne train to Rennes, brand new wagons and nice ride. At Rennes the TGV to Paris Montparnasse was just waiting on the other side of the Platform, easy picking and there I was on top row 1 class! I arrive at Paris Montparnasse and already with metro tickets purchased hop on the line 13 to Saint Lazare ; my old train station and glad to see it again completely remodeled and great shopping. There is many metro lines there, RER, buses , taxis you name it and walking distance to the great department stores, and Madeleine!! Opéra!!! Got back in to take line 3 to Levallois-Perret my final destination.

Levallois-Perret is one of the adjacent cities to Paris petite couronne in zone 2 and departément 92 Hauts-de-Seine. However, so attach to Paris you wont even notice is not Paris.  I had my lunch here at a wonderful new find  Restaurant A Table , right off the rue Georges Pompidou and at 43 Rue Baudin. Here I had the menu for 21,95€ terrine de saumon or salmon with veau roti dish roasted veal rondelles, potatoes, and green salad; had a nice Fouilly Fume blanc for apero and an Irancy of Burgundy for the meal, expresso coffee finish the day in grand style. Service was wonderful and so was the company. webpage here: http://www.restaurantatable.fr/

I had  my walks as used to do lots of business around here and the place is as grand as before, chic and nice, just next to Paris of course!

On the way back, had a great time walking the Streets of Paris, anybody coming here takes to the metro right away , big mistake. This gorgeous city is made to be seen above ground, do it and enjoy it. Walking along Avenue de Villiers and into avenue Jouffroy d’Abbans and into Rue de Rocher and coming behind the Gare Saint Lazare train station and near the Church of Saint Augustin was a fresh of life into me again. These were my work area coming in and out and walking to the office all the way by rue de Castiglione ,yes!!! And not forget the wonderful Carrusel at Villiers!

Off metro Wagram, off Avenue de Villiers and at  6 Rue Brémontier, you see the wonderful Church of Saint François de Sales!  They are two link by a hallway, and the organ is from 1900, and the new Church built between 1911 and 1913 done with entrance at 15-17 Rue Ampére. The old Church on Rue Brémontier from where I entered was done in 1873. The Church has a neo roman style, and you will see the chapels of the Virgin and the Sacred Child as well as the Holy Cross, and  St Teresa. The official Church site in French is here ; http://saintfrancoisdesales.net/  and the site for the Catholic Churches of Paris here , http://www.paris.catholique.fr/-saint-francois-de-sales-.html

Of course, could not be here without stopping by my favorite Spanish grocery store Cap Hispania at 23 rue Jouffroy d’Abbans, metro Wagram, line 3, and gather my manchego cheese, serrano ham, pork rinds, olive oïl , Duero red wine, and nougats of many varieties;;;;here since 1998! http://www.caphispania.fr/

I have been coming there since 2004! and always the best of Spain with friendly service and speaking Spanish !More than 180 products and knowledge on them to offer you.  The tour Montparnasse always nice to see it gloriously in the evening al lit up!

It was a short time, but it seems long, always Paris ;you will never be tired of seeing it. Enjoy it.

  1. It all sounds wonderful. The closest I’ve been to Paris is Versailles, as we don’t like driving into big cities, but I’d love to visit Paris for the Louvre and Notre Dame. I think I’ll just have to take the train!!! Thanks for sharing. 💗
