“This palace was built by Jacques Coeur - A powerful merchant at the head of a huge network of trading posts, Jacques Cœur was appointed finance minister to King Charles VII in 1438. He was ennobled in 1441 & became the King’s right-hand man. The palace (1443-1451) is testimony to his rank. Court jealousies led to his arrest in 1451. Escaping from prison, he fled to Rome. He died of disease when leading a Crusade in 1456. Jacques Cœur became a legendary figure & French poet François Villon wrote of his life and deeds. We love the lifelike statues that adorn the false windows - they look as if they are gossiping.”

“ Between 1798 and 1850, covered steets like the Passage des Panoramas were borned. As architecturaly novators as socially necesary, they could shelter luxury shops, restaurants, theatres, bookshops far away from the tumult and the transports of the city. 15 still exist among 60 in that remoted time, that is why they are classified in the repertory of Historical Monuments. The fist Gas lightning of the city happened in 1816 in the Passage des Panoramas, today stamps and postcards collectors get their treasures there, the others fall in love with the parisian atmosphere of the ancient times seating in a terrace of one of the very trendy restaurants. ”

“Place des Vosges. Little but very kind Park, surrounded by very old and beautifull style bulding, located in Le Marais, mostly the most interesting area in Paris. Very touristic by the way, so more expensive...right in front of the park, The Victor Hugo's house.”

“The Grand-Cerf covered arcade was created in 1825, not far from Turbigo (Montorgueil district). It is almost 12 m tall, making it one of the largest covered arcades in Paris. It is made of metal and wrought iron with a beautiful glass roof allowing light to shine through it. Visitors can stroll through it and discover the pretty shops selling handmade jewellery, furniture and and fashion. And amateurs will discover edgy shops selling kitting items, lighting, and many other items. It is also accessible via Rue Dussoubs. A must-see typically Parisian covered arcade!”
