Paris is like dessert before dinner, indulge often and generously!…Such a heartbreak to see Notre Dame from the bridge, so close yet not able to enter. She will be restored.
With only one day to scan the city, the many Medici palaces, Michelangelo’s David in Galleria dell’Accademia, and cornucopia of omnipresent churches would have to wait. Lines were long, time was short. What to do? Walk briskly, eat, drink, seek gelato!
Give me one day to live my entire life in Italy, I’d rise in Rome, get dressed in Milan, educated in Florence, fall in love in Venice.
Worth seeing? Unquestionably!… For me, I’m back there with every photo, bracing swim, sniff of olive oil or sip of Limoncello.
If Cinque Terre is not a bucket list item, it should be.
