So, here we are. In Paris. It was raining when we arrived. We are staying in the 7th arrondissement this time arround. 5 min walk from the Eiffel Tower. Droped the bags at the hotel and out we went for a walk.
General direction towards the Eiffel Tower. Did not queue for the tower but observed the crowds. There are some disciplined visitors and some stylish visitors.
Notice the Ladurée bag and Macaons?
On Avenue de La Bourdonnais we came across Gelateria Siciliana VASA VASA. It just opened April 15 this year and seems to be a franchise from Sicily.
Very pretty shop, bright and inviting
Of course I had the larges cup available
Vanilla, Pistachio, Chocolate and Stracciatella …
And the chocolate ice cream …. yummy, vanilla ice-cream was rather bland. Stracciatella was quite tasty too …. but the chocolate ice-cream …. really yummy … lots of chocolate and not bitter.
Dinner on Rue Cler at Cafe Central
on the way back to the hotel we caught another glimpse of the Eiffel Tower …
Tomorrow is Sunday, we will try our luck and see if one or more patisseries are open.
