From my home base at the posh Sofitel Le Faubourg, I spent two afternoons strolling down leafy Paris avenues. From a peaceful park in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower to the top of the Arc de Triomphe (did you know you could climb up for a panoramic view of the City of Lights?), my walk took me past pastries too beautiful to eat, outside expensive French lingerie shop windows, and across the famed Ponte Alexandre. Take a tour of Paris in pictures.
