There are large old buildings along tree lined boulevards you can imagine the old mellow facades hide apartments with " little Paris kichens" like Rachel Khoos. Once upon a time they were probably whole town houses with maids,chandeliers and parties perhaps this is still the case with some of them behind the wrought iron and faded grandure of the exteriors.
There is a network of about 300 metro stations making it easy to explore the city they seem to pop up everywhere. Musicians are allowed to play in the carriages I can't remember ever seeing this in London. It is great being seranded along to see the sights. It's these seemingly small things that give Paris it's unique essence.
