I’m sure I’ve previously mentioned how much I love the Jardin du Luxembourg on a sunny day, and here I’m having a bit of a throwback to my visit in autumn, when the trees were burning and the sun was out. When I stopped by I stumbled upon a brass band playing in the bandstand playing a mixture of classical pieces and movie soundtracks.
I recently found a collection of self-guided history walks around Paris, and have given myself the goal of completing them all by the time I leave France in August. I have so far only completed the 18th century walk, but I’m planning on getting another one done in a few weeks time.
Back in October, my French teacher suggested that I visit Cimetière Père Lachaise, and I was not disappointed! It is the largest cemetery within the city of Paris, and can be found in the 20th arrondissement.
