Paris Planning – initial thoughts (2)

Like I said before, the inspiration for the trip is Madeline!  Continuing as set out by this website, Madeline’s Paris, we’ll also have to make sure to see:

3. Pont Neuf and the River Seine: the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris, France. Its name, which was given to distinguish it from older bridges that were lined on both sides with houses, has remained after all of those were replaced. It stands by the western (downstream) point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river that was, between 250 and 225 BC, the birthplace of Paris, then known as Lutetia, and during the medieval period, the heart of the city.

4. Jardin des Tuileries: a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Created by Catherine de Medici as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was eventually opened to the public in 1667 and became a public park after the French Revolution. In the 19th and 20th centuries, it was the place where Parisians celebrated, met, strolled, and relaxed.

 

The pièce de résistance is yet to come…
