Tour de France: Paris, 4ème – Kali Vermès
Today’s ‘Tour de France‘ takes us to the 4ème arrondissement (75004) which will always have a spot in my heart from the days of my photography class at Studio Vermès. Ten years later, it’s still a favorite place, and today I’m thrilled to have photographer / terriarium “creatrice” Kali Vermès (Philippe’s daughter) to show us around. Also known as the Marais, the 4th is a former swampland full of great shops and charming nooks (Le Petit Fer au Cheval is a personal favorite), and spreads down the the “îles” of Paris. While most of Kali’s time is spent in the eastern side of the city now, I love the way she’s captured the 4th – and the light!
Worth checking out in the 4th:
- Favorite place to eat/drink: Le Grand Appetit – 9, rue de la Cerisaie
- Favorite cafe: Le Temps des Cerises, rue de la Cerisaie (for a drink or coffee!)
- Favorite shop: Papier + rue du Pont Louis Philippe
P.S. Don’t miss Kali on Boarding Pass!
