Today we met the Paris Stairmaster – we very probably climbed 1200 steps today!
We started with a walk through Luxembourg Gardens en route to the Catacombs…for which we waited 2 inexplicable hours but got to know two American couples on either side very well, which was nice.
We returned to the flat after some éclairs for some cheese and crackers before moving onto Montmarte to climb the Sacre Coeur Dome and wander the streets of the artsy neighborhood.
Afterwards, we made our way back to our “hood” and tried for the Pantheon but it seems they closed early. Wandered the cold rainy streets to the Pont des Arts and added our own love lock to the bridge, even though we had mixed feelings about it.
We then managed to find a restaurant with a half decent NYE menu price before making our way back to the flat to figure out the next move for NYE. However, we decided the rain and cold of the evening, along with our super early flight home the next morning, made it just too tempting to stay in our last night in this beautiful city!
