Â I love to start a walk at the Palais Royal, take a look around the gardens, then cross the Pont des Art to the Left Bank.

As you cross the Pont des Arts over the Seine you get a view of Ile de la Cite where Notre Dame is located. Here is the end of the island with Pont Neuf on either side.
Â On the Left Bank, the first building you reach is the Institute de France which was once a boarding school for boys set up by Mazarin.
It was a very busy sunny Sunday and also Palm Sunday so the streets and gardens were packed with people. These girls were set up in a littleÂ alley and I bet they made alot of money.
Â A view of the Luxembourg Gardens which is huge but it was so full of people it was like being on a street. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it so crowded.
