I almost expected to be a bit let down by Paris, but everything about this city is just completely magical!
On our way to pick up museum passes at the tourist office, we chased some police doing awesome training jumps off each bridge and running to the next. We followed for three and gave up.
Next we visited Musee D’Orsay to see the impressionists and then walked by Place de la Concorde and down a bustling Champs Elysees, a grand avenue of shopping and people watching.
We stopped at at the Grand and Petit Palais on the way to top the Arc de Triumphe.
After so much walking, we caught the metro to Notre Dame to see inside but missed the line for the tower . However, we were still able to visit the Crypt of Archeologie and hustled to be the LAST to enter Sainte-Chapelle.
With time to kill before a Seine River Cruise, we had a glass of wine – which helped keep us warm on the freezing front end of the boat.
We finished the evening with some cheese, crackers, and more wine….ahh…Paris!
