Our seventh day in Paris was simply lovely we ate a baguette in front of the Eiffel Tower, we walked around holding hands while taking everything in, we visited the Louvre, we went to the Champs-Élysées, and we saw unbelievable views from the top of the Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.
We walked around for awhile around the neighborhood where our hotel was at.
We had a lovely breakfast also known as petit déjeuner.
When we got tired of walking around we decided to look for the perfect sandwich that we could eat in front of the Eiffel Tower and we found it. It was the best sandwich I’ve ever ate. The hubby still brings it up.
After our quick lunch we went into our hotel where we could get some sweets.
After lunch and dessert we went on our way to the world famous Louvre.
We followed Rick Steve’s guide to the Louvre since we didn’t have a lot of time to spare. We also took the entrance in bottom level of the mall entrance and we used our museum pass to get in. There were a lot of people at the museum but we didn’t mind since we decided to take it slow and see the essentials. We got to see the Mona Lisa and I took some picture of the painting but I was more fascinated with the people standing in front of it instead. I love people watching especially in museums.
When we got tired of walking around and looking at all the magnificent art we made our way back into the mall area. We wanted to try out the food court and settled for some pizza.
Once we were finished eating we walked around the mall looking at cool shops and afterwards we went outside the Louvre to see the rest of Paris.
As we got towards the end of the Champs–Élysées I asked the hubby if he wanted to go on top of the Arc de Triomphe to check out the view. He didn’t realize we could actually go up there and he ran there when I told him we could use our museum pass to get in.
When we got up there I could believe how beautiful the city looked. I have seen several sunsets but none compare to seeing it on top of the Arc de Triomphe over looking all of Paris.
To end our perfect day in Paris we went to Ladurée.
