Since it was the middle of February I was prepared for snow, slush, sleet, gale-force winds and freezing temperatures, but in fact it was dry and frost-free the entire time, and on my last day we had brilliant sunshine and temperature readings from 17° C. at noon up to 20° C. a couple hours later, as shown on the green-cross signs of the pharmacies.
So I kept changing Velib' bikes every half hour and did a lot of cycling along the Seine and up into Passy, and then back to the East Station in time to catch my train back to Germany.
Following my visit to Paris in February 2011 I added nineteen new (at the time) tips to my Paris page:
Things to Do:
Champs-Élysées: It used to be even worse
Arc de Triomphe: The triumph of cars over people
Händel's Giulio Cesare at the Opéra Garnier
Opéra Garnier from the third level of box seats
Literary Paris : Théâtre de la Huchette
Literary Paris: Maison Victor Hugo
Literary Paris: Hugoffenbach at the Théâtre Musical Marsoulan
Passy: The house of Balzac
Literary Paris: Musée de la Vie Romantique
General Tips, now called Favorites:
Vélib' after three and a half years
Cycling in Paris
Local Customs: Les cadenas d'amour (love locks)
Hotels: Hotel Cosmotel: Adequate hotel in a run-down neighborhood
