    Church of Saint-Sulpice

    September 1 in France

    We finally found what we were looking for - Church of Saint-Sulpice. This is the second largest church in Paris and was built in 1646. While it has the amazing size, it was obvious that is not the wealthiest church in Paris and was in fact in need of maintenance, cleaning and repair, which was sad to see.
    It is known for the Great Organ which was reconstructed in 1862, and the unique holy water fonts which were made from the two halves of an enormous shell given to the King by the Venetian public.
    Outside the church was a lovely square and the Fontaine Saint-Sulpice. A nice place to sit and admire the Parisian surroundings.

    St Sulpice

    November 14, 2016 in France

    This church was in the book/movie the DaVinci Code written by Dan Brown, starring Tom Hanks. For those who saw the movie, this church is the one that had the "Rose Line" in it that Silas visited and later Robert Langdon (Hanks) and Sophie, all looking for the keystone. While there really is a line there, its not called the Rose Line and the information about the line in the movie is pure fiction.Read more

  • Day2

    We have arrived. When we walked into the hotel to check in we were greeted by name. What an interesting room key we have. You leave the key at the front desk when you leave so they know who's in and out (the key is also huge to carry) upon returning they remember which room is yours and automatically hand you the key. The breakfasts are great (fresh squeezed orange juice).Read more

    Paris, France

    May 30, 2017 in France

    Paris is an incredibly busy city, with heaps to see and do. The drivers here are absolutely insane, we were so glad Joshua was behind the wheel! We were up early today to make the best of our only full day in Paris and we had a very busy, yet very successful day. We beat the line-up for the Catacombs, before travelling to the top of the Montparnasse Tower to check out the views across Paris and also visited Les Invalides, the resting place of Napoleon Bonaparte.Read more
