Flâner = to wander
The Les Halles neighborhood offers more than just a gi-normous shopping mall underground. Above all the H&M and Zara stores, there is a lovely garden perfect for those weekend aimless wandering sessions. And Fall is a great time for afternoon walks. Pedestrian streets lined with trees and park benches…there’s the hustle and bustle of the 1st arrondissement mixed with the non-chalant liberty of free time. It’s a wonderful thing.
