    This website is AMAZING. I am here for one month and hope to see all that you write about here.

    One question to ask if you have it available: Is there any kind of a map that shows the locations of all your places you mention? The reason I ask is because I would love to visit them in such a way that I would know, for example, if the Metro station of note is near the small secret place you mention. That could be a great way to see places in an efficient way.

      Hello Savvas,
      I apologise for taking so long to reply to your message. The class I attended was quite small maybe 12 people and it lasted approximately 3 hours. I recommend that you contact Cordon Bleu directly and tell them what you would like to do and how many people you will have attending. They may offer to do a special class for your group. I do recommend them, I had a wonderful time. If you use the link I have provided, you will find a contact button on their website to email them. Good luck.

    Hi Adele,
    Right now I am in the planning stage of a trip to Paris for 10 days in March. I stumbled onto the information for your website and I am thrilled with the information you have provided. Thank you very much!! I enjoy the research part of a holiday almost as much as the actual travel. A few years I was doing some planning for a trip to Italy for my wife and myself and I discovered the website of a young lady living in Florence. She had wonderful information about “off the beaten track” little restaurants in Florence where we would probably be the only people who did not speak Italian. It was wonderful advice, and I am looking forward to mining the information you have provided also. Again, Merci Beaucoup!

      Hi Mike,
      I apologise for the delay in replying to you. Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to leave this wonderful message, that is really nice of you. I am so glad you are finding my tips useful. I agree that planning is almost as good as trip! Have a wonderful time in Paris and thanks once again.

    Just thought I’d say that you’ve published a wonderful and useful blog on Paris, filled with the usual practical stuff plus the “Oh my God!” revaluations that make the city my favorite place in the world.  I remember the day I first saw the angel outside Arts and Metiers.  My reaction was like yours…

    Every late summer and fall I stay here for a week at an inexpensive dorm on the Blvd.  St Michael.  I type; I walk the streets; I see museum exhibits; I gawk.  I get more done and think more clearly here than any other place on earth.

    Hello Adele,
    Thank you for all the really useful information.  I stumbled upon your site looking for the Salidore Dali sundail, and now I am enchanted.  I went out to the Rue de Mouzaia which is within walking distance of my apartment, so quaint and cute.  And the cats are too adorable.  I am always looking for unique places and perspectives on Paris which you provide in spades.  Thanks again.

  • Christine

    I love your site… it’s filled with valuable info that I wish I had before traveling to France. Better late than never, tho! Merci

  • Janice Blake

    Oh my goodness! I came across a photo of the Lavirotte Building posted on Twitter. We will be visiting Paris for the first time in June, and I have been so intimidated trying to figure out how to even begin to plan our explorations. Very luckily, your website came up on my search. It provides exactly the kind of information I have been looking for. Insights from someone who knows and loves the City. Thank you so much!!!
