The Place Saint-Michel dates back to 1860. The fountain is the center-piece, but the open area around it is where people relax, sit, stroll and socialize. It reminds me of the fountain area in Washington Square Park, Greenwich Village, New York. It is in the Latin Quarter neighborhood on the Left Bank of Paris.
BOB DYLAN “These Foolish Things” from his new album Triplicate
Paris is a walking city. The cafés, parks, fountains, churches, bridges across the Seine, meals in bistros, strolls around town such as in the Isle de la Cité or around Notre Dame—all of it lends itself to romantic moments. The city especially shines at night—it is the City of Lights. And those moments, as brief or as foolish as they might be, create lasting memories. The Place de Saint Michel (above) is like that if you just hang around for even 15 minutes.
