  • Angelina

    4 out of 5 stars

    Paris Restaurants

    Angelina is best described as a Salon de Thé and is well know for their hot chocolate and their Mont Blanc dessert. There are several locations in Paris as well as one at Versailles but I prefer the Tuileries location. I love the atmosphere and décor of this place;which is reminiscent of an era gone by; when women frequented tea rooms socially as...

    Nice Restaurants

    Have been here twice. Good food, waitstaff is friendly and professional. Food is fresh and tasty. Only one thing: the portions are huge, literary huge. I know it depends on how much a person eats and how hungry we are, but for me (who is little eater) and my husband (who eats normally to general standards) it was a lot. One main course for two of...

    Strasbourg Things to Do

    We could see the top of this church peak out above the other buildings as we tried to park our car. I wanted to see it, so we walked towards it and it was just amazing. It is HUGE! And, the ornate architecture is very impressive. I could not get the entire church in one photo. So, I took a video of the church. Unfortunately, we only stopped in...

    Strasbourg Restaurants

    We just arrived in town to grab some lunch. We could see this amazingly large church so we decided to walk towards it. After discovering the Eglise Réformée Saint-Paul church, we walked a little further and found a lively area with lots of outdoor dining options. We picked this restaurant because there were lots of people seated here and, usually,...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Lyon Things to Do

    I rarely give a tip a nondescript title, but in the case of Basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière the word "Wow!" is enough to describe it. While it looks pompous, but still rather harmless from the outside, vaguely reminiscent of Sacré Coeur in Paris, it's the inside that made my mouth open wide in awe. I've never seen a church as massively ornamented...

  • Le Tire Bouchon

    Lyon Restaurants

    We love to eat! So, we have dined at some swanky restaurants and, sometimes, it is a little disappointing when dining at these places doesn't live up to the expectation. So, coming to Lyon, I looked for casual, rustic restaurant with good reviews. Something not too pricey. Le Tire Bouchon was it. We arrived on to Lyon on a Monday evening and this...

    The official name of this square is the Place du Général-de-Gaulle, but most people still call it Grand’Place. It is the traditional main square of Lille and is now largely car-free, with only one lane that is still open to motor traffic. On a sunny Saturday afternoon in October the entire population of Lille seemed to be out in the square...

  • Aux Moules

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Lille Restaurants

    Aux Moules is a classic French-style brasserie with its white-apronned waiters, banquette seating, and close-fitting tables. The decor is characterful with old restaurant photos (Aux Moules was founded in 1930) hanging on the part ornately-tiled walls. The low-beamed ceiling and diffuse lighting add a cosiness and best of all the waiters are all...

    Marseille Things to Do

    When we had finished exploring the crypt and the interior of the Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde we wanted to visit the museum but as we didn't had enough time we had taken a walk around the Basilica.

  • Vieux Port

    Marseille General

    I have not been to Marseille since 1964, and at that time I was transiting by boat back and forth to the aircraft carrier that my husband was serving on. So I have various photos of the waterfront, lighthouses and aids to navigation. I have identified two photos of Fort Saint-Jean, a 1644 lighthouse which was inactive even when I saw it. It was...

    Toulouse Restaurants

    I am not a steak fan, and prefer fish or shellfish. Not knowing exactly what this restaurant served but I/we could not resist trying it because of the line of people waiting each evening to get in. What a neat suprise. I loved the steak, even the fries, so much, that when in Toulouse next spring to catch a flight home, I have planned to dine...

    Versailles Warnings and Dangers

    The palace and garden are both huge and you probably will need more than one day to see both.I say this as you may get very tired with all the walking and reading you do, I know I did! If you can it would be better done in two days.Another point to be aware of, is not all the rooms are open, there are usually some that are closed to be restored. It...

    Rouen Restaurants

    The Place du Vieux Marché is a great place to stop for lunch and people watching in the heart of Rouen, but many of the eateries are overpriced and not always of the quality you would hope for. One place which is a good bet is JM's café on the Eastern side of the square which has some good value lunchtime deals and serves some good quality fresh...
