The other trip I did this summer was to Paris. I must say that, even though it is a wonderful city that I've always loved, we didn't come back as happy as we did with Sicily. It was also another kind of trip, we went on our own and we wanted to do things and a bit of sightseeing.
We stayed at a small but beautiful studio we found on AirBnb by the Canal Saint Martin, and I must say that the night atmosphere by the canal was great! We discovered some great restaurants: an indian called Marcel and a bistro called Le Marine where we ate a delicious steak tartar. I had already been to most of the touristy places in the French capital on previous ocasions, we anyway repeated a few places like Notre Dame and the Louvre, and visited some other we hadn't seen like the Versailles palace, the Sainte Chapelle and Shakespeare & Co, the bookshop in "Before sunset" by Richard Linklater. We also did some geek sightseeing, went window-shopping in le Marais and went to a magnificent fashion exhibition from The 50s in which I could appreciate from a very close distance brilliant creations from Christian Dior, Pierre Cardin, Balenciaga and Balmain.
