Great report and pictures. What camera did you use?

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 3100. It was pretty darn cheap when I bought it 3 years ago and I am astounded at how good the pictures are for someone who has absolutely no camera skills!

Hi Amy. Thanks for the restaurant address. The pictures were great. I really liked the pictures of Tuileries and Giverny, but I guess it won't look the same by late summer (I love tulips). It has renewed my interest to go to Giverny though. We have 3 and smidge days in Paris and I wasn't sure whether I could fit a half day in at Giverny (and whether to do it by train or tour bus). Will have to think about it.

Thank you so much for the report. I'm getting ready for my first trip to Paris in mid-June and this has made me even more excited! One question...perhaps I missed it, but what hotel did you stay at in Paris?

Amy, great trip report. I have written down both Le Reminet (my husband loves pork chops and I am crazy about Creme Brulee!) and the craft floor on Au Bon Marche for my trip next month! This will also be my fourth trip to Paris, and I am determined to go to Giverny -- I've been torn between going on my own (while hubby is in a business meeting) or taking a tour. Sounds like going on your own is very doable.
Thanks again for sharing!
(I also enjoyed your thoughts on Venice, which brought back memories of my visit there in 2002).

Thateodchick, I stayed in the Hotel des Tuileries on Rue Ste Hyacinthe in the 1st.

Heelfan and Speckles, do try to go to Giverny. I don't regret it at all, even with such a disagreeable weather day. It must be an incredible task for the gardeners there to keep up with turning over the flowers to always keep them evergreen. Many of the tulips were approaching their past due date and the gardeners were working to pull some up and replant others. True, in June it will be a completely different garden, but who knows what will be in bloom then. And I'm not sure when the waterlillies themselves bloom....

Thank you so much for a wonderful report. I'm off to Paris and Venice at the end of June. I'll be my first visit to Venice, so your trip report will be most helpful.
