Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th

cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

We did a sidecar tour and the driver Thierry stopped to let me take photos along the way. Also, I got great footage with my GoPro from the sidecar as we cruised along the streets of Paris!
