NEW on Enjoy Food & Travel - Paris


View Paris on Enjoy Food & Travel 2006-2009 in a larger map

I have not been in Paris for several years, but I have been there many times and know the city well. I, and others, have during these last years written quite a few stories from the French capital. I have made a referring list and plotted them onto a map. So, who knows, perhaps I'll travel to Paris in 2010?

Hotels:
  • Full-screen
    Ermitage Hôtel
    Hotel used by my friends John and Øystein, when in Paris.
  • Fleche d'Or Hotel
    Decent, budget hotel by Gare Saint Lazare.
  • Hotel de Lille
    The first hotel I stayed in Paris, way back in 1984. Then a very "rustic" place with few mod-con's

  • Hotel Nicolo
    Hotel Nicolo
    is a hidden gem. It is quiet and charming with a tiny but lovely garden and newly redecorated rooms and very helpful and accommodating staff.
Restaurants

  • Auberge Nicolas Flamel
    One of the places that I dream to dine, is in Paris. In Rue de Montmorency in the Marais district you may eat in a house that once belonged to one of the greatest alchemists in the world - Nicolas Flamel.

  • Le Florimond
    I got this mail from my good friend John Wroughton. He and his partner, Øystein, had been to Paris over the New Year. They had their New Year's dinner ar Le Florimond. Here is his account of their meal.

  • Orestias
    Orestias is my favorite restaurant in Paris. It is messy and noisy and the waiters are real characters. They offer a small menu of inexpensive, seasonal Greek dishes.

Sights:
  • Full-screen
    Basilique du Sacré Coeur
    The basilica of the Sacred Heart is one of my favorite places in Paris. In spite of the thousands of visitors every day, it is a quiet place where you can be soothed by the sound of rattling rosaries and the smell of burning candles.

  • Centre Pompidou
    Closer to Centre Pompidou you find the Paris gay community. And Place des Vosges closer to Place de la Bastille, is maybe one of the most beautiful squares in Paris dating back to 1605.

  • Le Marais
    The Marais area has many old houses and its narrow streets is a melting pot. In Rue des Rosiers, you find the Jewish community side by side with immigrants from Nortern Africa.

  • Musé Max Fournet de’l Art Naïf et Primitif
    In Halle St Pierre in Montmartre, at the foot of the hill which is crowned by the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, le Sacré Coeur, is an extraordinary museum, Musé Max Fournet de’l Art Naïf et Primitif.
