Last Day in Paris

It's our last full day in Paris. How to make the most of it?? We decide to stay in our own little neighborhood and explore the Luxembourg Gardens and the Tour Montparnasse. The meeting with the landlady is later in the day and since we have an early start in the morning, we shall clean up and pack. Perhaps we'll take Ina up on her idea of strolling over to the Café de Flore mid evening and having an omelete and a flute of champagne, only to return home and tumble into bed.The Jardin du Luxembourg is a quiet, green, reflective place. The Palais du Luxembourg. The Fontaine de Médicis, a 17th century fountain in the style of an Italian grotto.The Monument to Delacroix is situated near the private gardens of the French Senate. Beneath the bust of the leading Romantic painter Eugène Delacroix are the allegorical figures of
Art, Time and Glory


Liberty Leading the People (French: La Liberté guidant le peuple) Eugène Delacroix 1830 Louvre, Paris

The boy holding a gun up on the right is sometimes thought to be an inspiration of the Gavroche character in Victor Hugo's 1862 novel, Les Misérables.

Adieu Graceful History
Stand watch you Queen's of France
