  • Absolutely enjoyed this! It's free. It's like stepping back in time. Just imagine when you look down that the people are dressed in peasant clothing! Perfect day in September with hundreds yet it's spacious. Please hit the "thumbs-up" if this post was helpful.
  • It's Paris, no need for words! 🙏
