Over the years I’ve become quite intimate with the back streets, local hang-outs and unexpected corners of the city… the better I get to know Paris, the more I love it. I share my favorite spots with my guests on SOJOURNER TOURS Best Kept Secrets and Off-the-Beaten-Path sojourns… and, I thought it would be fun for some of you to test your knowledge and get to know the city better.
Please post your guesses! I love seeing your ideas.
HINT: This is my favorite museum in Paris. You can see from the still life and the stuffed fox curled up in the chair contrasted with the bizarre contemporary rabbit sculpture hidden under the table that this is a museum full of whimsy. Set in a sumptuous manor house in the Marais district, the name of this museum is misleading… who would expect to find a mythology room complete with a unicorn horn or a room full of portraits of dogs? The last time I went there was a huge temporary sculptural installation of a giraffe… and you could climb up to put your head in it’s belly. (And people say Austin is weird… it ain’t got nothin’ on Paris!)
