Last week we had snow in Paris almost every day. It began to snow on Monday and we had to wait until Sunday before the snow melted in any place, especially on the terraces or in the gardens.
It is quite unusual to see Paris under a white coat. So I decided to take some pictures of the most famous places in the city under the snow so as to capture and remember those magical and fleeting moments. Whether you were in Paris last week or not I hope that you will appreciate them. Just to enjoy, without a word: Snow is also Silence.
Let’s start at the Louvre…
… Have a walk in Montmartre on a sunny day…
Snow around the Sacre Coeur – Montmartre
The roof of the Lapin Agile under snow – Montmartre
Stairs in Montmartre under snow
… And end with a view on the Eiffel Tower.
The Eiffel Tower – Closed for Snow – Paris – February 2018
Snow in the Champ de Mars – Eiffel Tower – Paris – February 2018
Waiting for the spring to come… or maybe for skiing during the winter holidays for some of you. See you soon!
Following the deadly attacks in Paris last Friday The Eiffel Tower had been closed during the weekend and its lights had been switched off. The iconic monument of Paris reopened to visitors on Monday afternoon and is lit up in Blue White and Red for three days, until tonight. The Eiffel Tower does not only wear the French national colours but also the motto of the City of Paris: ‘Fluctuat nec Mergitur’.
I went on the Esplanade du Trocadéro last night to admire the Iron Lady in Blue White and Red: so beautiful, so majestic, so… hard to put into words! The Esplanade was not crowded at all and everybody could take one’s time contemplating or taking pictures. If you are in Paris tonight I highly recommend you to go for a ride to the Trocadéro: the view on the Eiffel Tower is really worth seeing!
Located in the very center of Paris the Tour Saint Jacques is worth seeing for its remarkable architecture in the Flamboyant Gothic style. And since 2013 it is open to visitors every summer from early June till the end of September. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, one can visit it by booking in advance a guided tour of the Tour Saint Jacques with the Association Des Mots et des Arts. Do not miss it: After climbing 300 steps one is rewarded by breath-taking 360-degree views over Paris!
