|La Place des Vosges|
|One could easily miss the synagogue.|
When I was staying in the Latin Quarter, I enjoyed browsing in bookstores. As a student, I was amazed at the floors of Gibert Joseph where one can find any French title imaginable. Around La Place des Vosges, there are many small galleries with paintings, sculpture and mixed medium works of all sorts.
It is pleasant to stroll under the arches and to look in the windows.
|I liked this acrylic of les bouquinistes.|
Place des Vosges is the neighbourhood of V.H. but he actually lived in Notre-Dame des Champs on the other side of Seine as well.
|Victor Hugo was one of the greats of the 19th century.|
I have sampled different neighbourhoods on my visits but I really believe that each quartier has its own charm and that I could be happy anywhere in Paris in the springtime.
