Trip Report A Couple Sites to See & A Few Restaurants to Enjoy

Jump to last reply

We just returned from 19 days in Paris. There were a couple of places we went to that we don’t hear mentioned a lot on these boards so I thought I would identify them. Also since restaurant posts are always a popular, I thought I’d share some of our favorites from this trip.

SITES
Zadkine Museum http://www.zadkine.paris.fr/en and Bourdelle Museum http://www.bourdelle.paris.fr
Both of these are workshops and museums. Both are free as they are part of the Paris city museums. We knew little about either artist so it was quite interesting to learn about each of them. Their styles were rather different. The workshops are interesting to visit and the grounds lovely. I imagine in the Springtime they would be especially nice or as a respite on a hot summer day.

La Defense -- We finally took advantage of Paris Greeters. For one of the questions on the form, we mentioned we liked architecture. We were taken to La Defense which is abusiness district for Paris. The modern architecture is spectacular and well worth a visit with or without a guide. The starkness of the buildings is such a lovely contrast to the old Paris architecture. Our guide was doing her first tour and had lived there for 30 years so had been a part of its development and change over the years. As an interesting aside a French TV station filmed our tour. They were doing a series on recent retirees and featuring our guide. It’s very easy to get to La Defense via metro, just out the 1 line to the end. http://www.aviewoncities.com/paris/defense.htm
