In a few days, I will be in Europe and in about a week or so I’ll be in Paris celebrating my baby’s birthday. I found this article “The 25 Most Beautiful Places in Paris” which I think is a cool to do list for us while we’re there. You should also check them out if you’re in town.
View down Champs-Élysées from Arc de Triomphe
The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris, standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the center of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l’Étoile — the étoile or “star” of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues. (Source: Wiki)

Pastel-colored homes of Rue Crémieux
There is a street in Paris that is all about colour and how sweet life can be. Its name is Rue Crémieux, and its inhabitants would surely prefer that we not reveal it to you because it is a little corner of paradise.
A pedestrian street with private houses… This charming street is located in the 12th arrondissement, between Rue de Lyon and Rue de Bercy. It is a little street, 144 metres long, that is pedestrianised and cobblestoned and gives visitors the impression that they have left Paris behind. There are no Haussmann style buildings here, only unquestionably charming little houses. Their particularity is that the façades are mainly in gentle pastel colours. From the green at number 21 to the blue at 22, the purple at 23, the yellow at 24, the pink at 30… And when the colours are not attracting your eye, it will be drawn to the trompes l’œil that decorate the façades, with a cat hunting delicately painted birds or a lilac that surrounds an entrance. Animals of the feline variety (real ones) must think themselves in the countryside among the flower pots that are lined up outside the houses and visitors will have a similar feeling over the course of this short, but delightful stroll.
A lovely spot for a picture… Rue Crémieux is beginning to fall victim to its success and you may well not be the only one taking photographs in this street whose façades are reminiscent of Portobello in London or Burano in Venice. The light plays with the colours all day long, so much so that fashion bloggers have made it their favourite spot for presenting the latest outfits. Here’s some advice so that this little piece of paradise remains one – be discreet! Rue Crémieux 75012 Paris

The Louvre Museum (and I.M. Pei’s Pyramid)
The Louvre Pyramid (Pyramide du Louvre) is a large glass and metal pyramid designed by Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, surrounded by three smaller pyramids, in the main courtyard (Cour Napoléon) of the Louvre Palace (Palais du Louvre) in Paris. The large pyramid serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum. Completed in 1989, it has become a landmark of the city of Paris. (Source: Wiki)
