    A day exploring Paris

    August 10, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    After a great nights sleep we got ready to go off exploring for the day. We had a Hop on Hop off bus ticket so we made our way to the bus stop, after coffee of course and a croissant or two! Stopped at the Sacre Coeur and walked up the steps to a magnificent building and view. Who needs to go up the Eiffel Tower??

    Back on the bus and past the Opera House, The Louvre and the magnificent grounds. Then we hopped off the bus and started the walk up the Champs Élysées. We wanted to go to a museum or gallery but lesson learnt you need to pre book your tickets. We did come across the Petite Palace where there was an exhibition. Entry was free and there was not a line or a crowd. Hidden treasure. Then walked across the bridge over the Seine and stopped on the banks for a quick lunch of a delicious pizza and a glass of wine.

    We then continued our walk up to the Arc de Triomphe and then we caught a train on the metro and made our way back to the hotel, totally worn out.

    A short nap and now we are off to dinner and the late night show at Moulin Rouge.
