In Paris in the 13th arrondisment, there is a showroom specialising in Citröen vintage cars, mostly the famoue DS.
The car that Alain Delon stole in the film “Le Samouraï”
The best way to see Paris, apart from walking, is to take the bus.If you get yourself a weekly ticket, even if not there for a week you will still save money, you can jump on and off. You’ll see all sorts of different parts of Paris which haven’t changed over the years. Wonderful markets and speciality shops like the one above selling middle eastern goodies. You might even find a bargain! This shop was near the Place D’Aligre where there is a wonderful exotic market.The link will give you a guide to other Paris Markets.
You can of course find shopping centres that make you feel like you never left home, like this one at Beaugrenelle in the 15th arrondisement.
Here you could be in Dublin, London or Sydney.
There are artisanal bakeries and patisseries opening all over Paris.
The Parisians are searching for glutenfree products these days.
One Bakery has it’s own rice flour mill and sells to such prestigious restaurants as Alain Ducasse Plaza Athénée.In this link there is a very interesting little film about Ducasse and his suppliers.
Chambelland Boulangerie, 14 rue Ternaux,11th Paris.
The link to Chambelland Boulangerie is to a blog by David Lebovitz, an American chef living in Paris, very informative.
These cakes and tarts are not gluten free!!!!!!
These cakes and tarts were from Le Bon Marche, the most beautiful, in my opinion, department store in Paris.
This was a very glamorous Patisserie, in the 5th near the Pantheon.
