The Hôtel de Ville is the city hall of Paris and it is a magnificent sight even on a stormy day.
The most famous of all Parisian landmarks is La Tour d'Eiffel, and the view from the expansive Champ de Mars gives it a majestic feel.
A wedding was taking place right behind the Champ de Mars with the Eiffel Tower as the backdrop :)Pralus has great temptations both outside and inside their shop.
Chez Janou, a provençal bistro for a bit of warmth. This cozy place has a covered outdoor patio that would be lovely in sunny weather, but even in rain, it is a haven. The lunch formule was a choice of either entrée & plat or plat & dessert for 14,50 € or about $18 USD. They were already of out the sauteed mushrooms entrée and the coq au vin plat by the time I sat down at 2pm, so I ordered the velouté de cresson (watercress soup) and saumon avec tagliatelle des legumes (salmon with tagliatelle of vegetables). The soup was perfectly made with a smooth purée of watercress in a well seasoned soup. It was also a hearty serving, easily enough for a full meal if you are not very hungry. Grilled garlic bread was served on the side, but I preferred dipping the regular bread into the bowl to sop up the last bits of this liquid green jewel.
