Medieval Churches of Paris walk

Everyone slept in so we skipped breakfast and walked to lunch near Saint Germain des Pres, where we would start a walking tour at 2:00 pm.

We crossed Pont de Sully and walked along the Left Bank of the Seine.

First church, Saint Germain des Pres, one of the oldest medieval churches in Paris:



Saint Germain l’Auxerrois, a late Gothic church
Third church, Saint Sevrin, with some unusual Flamboyant Gothic elements




Final church, Saint Etienne du Mont, a Mannerist style late Gothic church:





After our walk, we kept finding shops and bars which were closed because it was Sunday. We stopped for frommage et vin at Grand Bar de Cluny, a touristy spot so Robin, monsieur connaisseur, refused to stay for dinner.
We had dinner at Le Reminet. Although we had no reservations, our early arrival (before 8 pm) probably helped get us a table.  Food was surprisingly good for a restaurant close to Notre Dame and the tourist hordes.

We got to bed much earlier.
