Special Settings for Sitting! Paris

Jump to last reply

One thing I enjoy much in Europe cities is finding a bench or chair somewhere or any place to sit on and watch the passing show or gaze at broad vistas. It may be a break from the rigors of sightseeing or a nice picnic spot but these are places I always go back to whenever I can.

I have several such favorite places in Paris - foremost of which is a bench at the west end of the Tuileries Gardens overlooking the Place de Concorde- watching the non-stop traffic whizz around it and pedestrians gingerly walking across it.

You can see across the Place to the heavily-barricaded at time American Embassy and the square has all those mammoth statues. The Eiffel Tower looms in the near distance.

I also love sitting in the Luxembourg Gardens by a fountain basin and watch the crowd of walkers and joggers go by and in The Tuileries proper at the basins where kids rent boats to float around it and again see the parade of walkers and joggers constantly go by.

A third local I love is to sit on the Trocadero esplanade smack across from the Eiffel Tower in the nice arm chairs there and watching the fountains splash and skate boarders and break dancers often performing for the crowd. Lovely seeing the peniches and tour boats floating by too.

And just about any cafe with outdoor tables is a great place to people watch the passing parade out front.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SETTINGS FOR SITTING IN PARIS?
