We Love Paris in the Springtime (and in winter, summer, and fall)
Paris Picks from the Boiron USA Staff

 Notre Dame“There are so many things to see in Paris, that it can be a little overwhelming. The best way to see it all? Start at the Hôtel de Ville, Paris’s city hall. From there, you can easily locate the Seine, which you’ll follow for most of the day. Then head west to your next stop--Notre Dame de Paris. Continue on Right Bank and notice how Pont des Arts is covered with padlocks. It’s a tradition for couples to attach a lock to the bridge as a symbol of their eternal love. Next up is the Louvre and its gardens (Jardin des Tuileries), the gorgeous fountains at Place de la Concorde (featured in the famous movie, “The Devil Wears Prada”) and the massive Luxor Obelisk, a gift from the Egyptians back in 1829 which once marked the entrance to the Luxor Temple. Cross the plaza, and you’re now at the end of Champs-Élysées. Enjoy its luxury stores and some vanilla macaroons at Ladurée. At the end of the famous boulevard, you’ll find the Arc de Triomphe. From there, find Avenue D’Iena, and finish your day by the iconic Tour Eiffel!” – Nathalie Z.

“Visiting Les Catacombes is an essential activity when visiting Paris. Dare to have a look at these old quarries from 1785 that were converted into a giant cemetery. Take a ride on Ballon de Paris, the biggest balloon in the world, and learn about the air quality in the city—the balloon changes color depending on the current pollution levels! Celebrating a special occasion? Do it on the river with a boat rental from Green River. Travel down the Seine, the Marne or the Canal Saint Martin. Enjoy a guided tour of Paris’ numerous exhibits and museums with a passionate volunteer from Des Mots et des Arts. And for the food lover—take a tasty break in the famous, very chic tea room, Angelina. If you’re a chocolate lover, I recommend the succulent African chocolate!” – Olivia B.

MORE STAFF PICKS

Dancing on the Seine“One of my favorite days in Paris: Get your food to go with a ‘grec avec frites’ from Au P’tit Grec (or opt for the crepes) and walk through Butte-aux-Cailles to Parc MontSouris for a relaxing picnic. Later in the afternoon, grab a dose of history and architecture at Notre Dame before heading to an early dinner across from the Hôtel de Ville at Grizzli Café (I had the BEST tuna steak of my life there—and the house wine is delicious). After dinner, make your way back to the Left Bank of the Seine for a tango lesson along the Quai Saint-Bernard, then practice your new moves at one of the bars or jazz clubs around Saint-Michel!” – Lauren A.

Musée de l’Orangerie houses the most beautiful paintings of Claude Monet’s masterworks, the Nymphéas (Water Lilies). The paintings are in a room with natural light, so you can see them change as if they were outside. There are several other masterworks from post-impressionists in this museum, which is located in the beautiful Tuileries Garden. Giverny waterlilliesA few other must-see places include the Rodin Museum, the Musée d’Orsay, the Palace of Versailles, and Giverny, a beautiful town where Monet lived and tended his garden. His house is just as it was when he lived there, and all of his paintings were inspired by his beautiful garden and pond.” – Tara B.

Love for Oscillo
“Oscillococcinum is an absolute life saver! I discovered it through my brother, who happened to be living abroad at the time. I went to visit him and was just starting to feel sick. He swore by Oscillo, and insisted that I take it. I’ve never taken anything else to stop flu-like symptoms since. I swear by this stuff now too — and have recommended it to many of my friends and family. Oscillo rocks!”

“My wife had me try Oscillo and Coldcalm and I have used them throughout the past two cold seasons with unbelievably good results. At the onset of symptoms, I have used either Oscillo or Coldcalm and have had a dramatic decrease in both symptoms and in the duration of colds and flu. I work in a public school setting and get an annual flu shot. I have had colds last for months, but not after using your products. Thank you, thank you!”

“I took Oscillococcinum in the store, as I was shaking and sneezing and chilling from fever. I was miserable and was only hoping to be well enough to travel in three to four days for a business trip. Instead, I was well the next day. It sounds impossible, but after three doses of Oscillo for three to four days, I was working and living normally while others in the family who had the same bug had been sick for a month. Thanks Oscillo! I bought out two stores just to make sure we have Oscillo in stock all the time!”
