Le Cherche Midi is "in" and has a sizeable following. It is truly italian, convivial, with tasty food. You feel welcome there, the lively scene reassures you that you have not made a mistake. I found the prices high (over 20 euros for pasta), 9...More

art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
