John & I went to Paris June 3-11
We stayed in a very nice studio apt we arranged through Airbnb. It was in the heart of Paris in the 13th and close to the metro.
Just before we left there were reports of flooding in Paris with the Seine near overflowing.
The Louvre and the Dorsay were closed until Wednesday so we decided to take the Hop-on Hop-off bus for two days. These always work well for us when we travel. We hopped off at the Eiffel tower and had lunch at one of the near by bistros. On the second day of the Hop-on Hop Off we went to Montmartre. It really is a tourist trap.
I had hopes of doing some plein air painting there but the energy just was not right. We did pass the Moulin Rouge on the way to Montmartre and afterwards stopped at the Erotic Art Museum which was quite a nice exhibit.
Scenes from Montmartre. We did take the funicular up so
we did not have to climb all the way up. With careful planning, we got to see the Rodin museum, the Hotel des Invalides (the military museum), Museum Orangerie. Musee de Louvre, Musee D’Orsay, Versailles and Isle de Cite
