On the menu - Mediterranean salad. Quinoa, kale, olives cucumber feta. Sounds good right? Normally the food is great, but this one is a major flub. It was plate of quinoa and very very little of the other ingredients. And no dressing. I had two...More

Large imposing church in a central location. If you go to a concert, sit near the front, acoustics good, but not great.

We just see this great building because we are going to buy Maille Dijon Mustard in the area and decided to see it first before we refill my wife’s preserved bottle only for mustard.

This is a gigantic and stunning church, located in the Opera district in Paris. Both the exteriors and the interiors are imposing and beautifully designed. The acoustics inside the church is absolutely wonderful. Well worth the visit.

A beautiful place to visit. Massive exterior and stunning interior. Many visitors on a midweek morning. Exterior appeared to be being prepped for renovation.

The church is quite beautiful, is old but is very well maintained. I suggest not to go on prayer time, so that you can admire the sculptures and paintings.

This church was built in the late 1700s in the style of a Greek temple. It has 52 columns. Now, the exterior is under renovation and is partially scaffolded. Inside though is still worth checking out. There are great statues inside and the bronze doors...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

The church is usually open daily. I don't know the exact hours but at least from 8 am to 6 pm and later if there any concert or event. If there is a wedding in progress, that would be a great time. A wedding here is... More
