Roaming the streets to pick up some freshly baked croissants was a great idea. From Bastille, I walked to the Hotel de Ville in the Marais. I read somewhere that designer Giambattista Valli’s headquarters are actually in the Hotel de Ville (which is the building in the first photo)!
Later in the day, I went on a food tour of Marais organized by La Cuisine Paris. It was interesting to learn about area and have a taste of the different specialities I wouldn’t normally go after.
We walked along the Quai De L’Hotel De Ville, across La Seine to the Ile St-Louis which was so small it only had three streets. Then we looped around to the oldest street in Paris – Rue de Rosiers.
