In the top floor in Galeries Lafayette there's a restaurant where you can have a coffee and enjoy the spectacular views :)
The Pompidou square and the places around are a great place to have a coffee and observe all the movement that happen always there.
You will not be disappointed :)
Paris, along the Saint-Martin canal, a district which always looks like the old Paris of my childhood and where the art invests the street.
An exceptional place to visit, the greatest museum in Paris, when you are inside you feel like if you are traveling all humanity generations. situated undergroud, but inside you feel flying all over the world.
My one and only time I've done a house-swap and it worked out perfectly. I traded my downtown Brooklyn for her artsy Pigalle and had a most rewarding introduction into Paris. For 10 days, I lived at the foot of Montmartre, my new favorite slice of French life-- filled with bohemian love, language and music. Of course, I saw the rest of the city, too, but somehow, the hills leading up to the Sacre de Cour beckoned me throughout my stay. Magnifique!
