A city that beautifully integrates its past and present. Almost everything appears to be a work of art: a simple street lamp, a sign, a petite garden that suddenly appears along your path, the way the fish monger displays his catch and the arrangement of cheeses and meats in a charcuterie. Every moment, a picturesque vignette with a story.
And yet, this picturesque city is thoroughly modern where the old and the new seem to magically reside in harmony. In addition to the curb side Vélib’ rental bikes, they also have little Electric Cars you can rent the same way. A city where bike paths co-mingle with the cars, new structures stand peacefully next to glorious old edifices, and contemporary sculptures inhabit sacred spaces. The citizens seem to hold upmost respect for their city. And I can not forget to mention that Paris has over 420 curbside Sanisette, or self cleaning toilets, normally open from 6am – 10pm.
What a “relief” that is!
