Hotel du Nord, such a great place in a wonderful location by the Canal Saint Martin. We had a great night when we were last there for our review. Nostalgic, romantic and oozing with atmosphere.

Place de Furstemberg was also the location of the famous last scene in The Age of Innocence by MScorsese.

Beautifully written and researched. So very much enjoyed the tour and points of interest which I shall log for my next jaunt to Paris. One of my very favorite cities in the world. You are so right – Americans love Paris. Guess that’s why so many movies and books have been written about it. This was a great read, articulate and concise. I’m very glad I’ve subscribed.

Oh so frustrating I havent seen all those movies yet. Now you just added some more to my list AGAIN. But I love that. Thanks a lot. Love this blog.
