Wine was not good. I tried 3 types but I don't like any of them. Italian salad was very interesting, it has pasta, ice cream mixed with salad. Interesting taste but I should say I like it.

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
