I used to go to Passy neighborhood in 16 th arrondissement. Some of my friends lived here. From the station metro Passy, I walked up and was passing the candy shop, the cafés towards my friend’s apartment. Passy is an exclusive area of Paris. I could feel the old parisian ambiance here. It is home to many of the city's wealthiest residents. Old money. Inherited money.

There’s a covered market in Passy which has a nicely array of fruit, vegetables and especially fresh seafood from Brittany (Bretagne). Some of the best shellfish in the world come from the Brittany Coast around Cancale and also south near Vannes.
