The picture above was taken from the top of La Samaritaine Department Store. I had read somewhere that this place had a great view, so I made sure we went one afternoon. We had a relaxing drink there.
We visited in June so the weather was perfect. It was nice and warm so our suitcases were very light with summer clothes. No jackets, not even a sweater. Let me think..why did we go to Paris... Oh yes, hubby had a business trip to Nurburg in Germany, and Paris was a short drive away. So we flew into Paris, stayed a few days and then drove to Nurburg in a rental car. Then after the business trip, back to Paris for a couple of more days.
This time we are coming from Madrid (after a Northern Spain road trip) to catch a plane in Paris, so decided it might be good idea to stay a couple or three nights. I booked a one-bedroom apartment at the 4th--the Marais. I've always had good luck with vacation rentals and I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
