The Classics

Rue Montorgueil
This is one of those Parisian streets that transports you back in time. Names have changed but the atmosphere remains: cobblestones, bistro tables crowding sidewalks, and dozens of specialty shops where locals buy everything from fruit and vegetables to cheese, wine, flowers, fish and meat.

LES LOLOS Tip: La Fermette carries a to die for pecorino a la truffe — sheep’s milk cheese with thick veins of black truffles that stands out even among this impeccable selection.

When friends visit Paris, I tell them to skip Notre Dame for Saint Eustache, the French Gothic masterpiece that is almost always — inexplicably — empty. Let everyone else jostle with the 30K daily visitors to Notre Dame. Saint Eustache’s impressive sombre beauty can be enjoyed in peace. Occasional concerts feature their impressive Grand Organ, whose 8000 pipes make it the largest in France. Concert schedules can be found on their site.

  1. I have been following this site for about a week and had a good feeling about it. Then I found that someone here loves St Eustache as much as I do and I knew I was right with my first instinct. I can’t wait to hear more from all of you. Gros Bises. Julie
