Montmartre, the neighborhood of painters in Paris, maintains the spark that once made it the home of some of history's greatest artists
The best part of Montmartre is just going with the flow of the narrow, twisting streets; breathing in the same sparkling air of the bohemians throughout the ages; eating well and finally, reaching the summit and being rewarded with amazing views. Montmarte is one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in "the city of love". In spite of the loss of authenticity due to the high number of tourists, it is still a âmust-seeâ for art and bohemian lovers.
When the program Tertulias Viajeras (Traveler Social Gatherings), offered us the opportunity to speak along with such great, innovative people as Doris Casares and JosĂ© Luis Sarralde, we did not hesitate to say âYesâ! Also, the topic of âSecret Cornersâ is one El BoquerĂłn Viajeroâs favorites. Wherever we travel, we are constantly looking out for out-of-the-way places that are not as well known. The travelers in the room, instantly put me at ease. You could learn a lot just by listening to everyone interact. The excellent organization of Sele, Cristina, David & Pak Munoz made it all possible.
The Creperie Lepic Asiette is a small place in Montmartre (Paris) full of charm, where we ate wonderful galletes in a charming atmosphere
During our visit to Paris, one of the neighborhoods we simply couldnât miss was Montmartre. We had been advised that dining in this area would be little bit expensive, since there are a lot of tourist attractions nearby and that people who live in Paris donât often eat there. However, under the ruskommendation of a Parisian, we wandered a bit and discovered a place more authentic than the restaurants that are âclassicsâ for tourists. It was the Creperie Lepic Asiette, along the narrow, cobbled Rue Lepic.
The neighborhood of Trastevere in Rome has always stood out fire its charming streets and Bohemian atmosphere
Located along the banks of the Tiber River (Italian: Tevere) in Rome, just south of the Vatican, the region of Trastevere is one of Rome's most bohemian neighborhoods. This area of narrow serpentine streets is filled with bars, restaurants and unique little shops that reminded us of Greenwich Village in New York or MalasaĂ±a in Madrid. It turns out that Trastevere has been considered the more multicultural area for centuries, and its cobblestone streets, too narrow for a carriage to pass are just what give Trastevere its modern day charm.
