Free Running Tour of Paris
Today’s Friday Free-day tour of Paris was a warm one. A very hazy and foggy day that left some of the far off monuments shrouded out.
A beautiful run in any case, starting off at Notre-Dame Cathedral and heading over to Rive Gauche and the Latin Quarter the run weaved it way west towards Grand Palais, taking in views of the Eiffel Tower, and seeing Le Louvre, Tuileries and Concorde along the way.
Heading back to Notre-Dame, taking in the banks of the River Seine, the run went past Les Invalides and Musée d’Orsay.
Lovely to feel the warm sunshine on the back and take in the colors of the blooming trees which are really coming into spring.
A tougher run on the warmer day, but the pace was easy and, all up, the run time was a little over an hour.
A very small word on the “Paris on the Run” video in the Tours page.
It’s not my video (obviously…)
It’s a great video, but, alas, a little unrealistic; it’s used quite a bit of creative license (and, no doubt, some trips on the metro…)
While the RunParis.fr running tours take in a lot of the great sights of Paris, the places featured in the video are pretty far-flung, and it would take a heck of a run to capture them all, especially as effortlessly as it looks in the video.
I’m not saying we couldn’t do it… What I am saying is that you’d want to have carbo-loaded for it!
