The Tuileries Fair is a family and traditional fair which takes place this year from June 21 to August 25, 2019. It is held each summer in a place steeped in history, the Tuileries Garden. It is organized by Marcel Campion, the same man who manages the Foire du Trône, operated the ferris wheel formerly installed on Place de la Concorde and organized the Christmas market at the bottom of the avenue des Champs Élysées. The Tuileries funfair hosts more than 60 fairground attractions (including 20 rides), wooden horses, ice palace, bumper cars, ghost trains, rifle shooting, duck fishing, trampoline, slide, climbing ...
I love so much these vintage little shops and cafés, I would have love Paris even more when everything was like this.
Located on Place Louis Lépine, between Sainte-Chapelle and Notre Dame Cathedral, the flower market (marché aux fleurs)has delighted all botanical lovers since 1830. Composed of period cast iron pavilions, it allows a pleasant and atypical walk among the flowers, trees and plants. The market took the official name of "Reine Elizabeth II Flower Market" in 2014 during the Queen's last official visit to France. Every Sunday it gives way to the bird market.
The carousels are undeniably part of the Parisian landscape as are the metro entrances, the lampposts, the Wallace fountains ... You can admire them everywhere in Paris (at the Jardin des Plantes, Place Saint-Pierre in Montmartre, Parc Monceau , Place du Trocadéro ...) and immerse ourselves in the Paris of yesteryear.
Located at 2 rue de l'Abreuvoir, in the heart of Montmartre, at the foot of the vineyards, La Maison Rose attracts attention for its picturesque side, its pink color and its green shutters. This house belonged to Laure Gargallo, who was one of the models of Pablo Picasso during his blue period. She painted it pink and transformed it into a small canteen for her artist friends. Its name is also inspired by one of the paintings of the painter Maurice Utrillo dating from the 1900s. Today the Maison Rose is a trestaurant which offers a small menu but composed only of local products and saion.
The story of Ladurée and Its famous Macaron
The café de Flore is legendary, it has been the place for all literary meetings and philosophical debates for almost 50 years. It opened its doors in 1887. Around 1913, Guillaume Appolinaire settled there and transformed the ground floor into an editorial room. He created the magazine "Les soirées de Paris". In the 1930s, it was the turn of writers, painters and intellectuals to take over the premises. Simone de Beauvoir, Jacques Prévert, Jean-Paul Sartre were among the regulars of the Flora. The world of cinema is not outdone and also takes hold of the places: Jane Fonda, Jean Seberg, Roman Polanski, Brigitte Bardot and Alain Delon are regulars of the Flora which is still one of the most legendary places in Paris
The covered passages are a Parisian invention. They were built between 1820 and 1840 to allow Parisians to be able to shop sheltered from the weather. These galleries with magnificent glass roofs and wrought iron lampposts became the meeting place for the Parisian bourgeoisie. And now, they allow us to plunge back into an era that is unfortunately over.
I totally fell in love with the retro facade of this restaurant. Located in the 4th district of Paris, near the Seine, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and Square Jean XXIII, the restaurant Au Vieux Paris. Its gourmet cuisine is typically French, inspired by the South West.
