We will take a Eurostar train under the English channel to Paris and then we have some free night life time right away! Which would you do:
Scheduled sightseeing bus tour of Paris with the local guide going down the Champs-Elysees, see the Arc de Triomphe, and go to the Eiffel Tower! Can’t wait to take a typically tourist picture with the Tower 🙂
Then we have our next excursion to Versailles which I was skeptical about in the beginning when we were first thinking about which optional excursions to go on but now I’m really excited we decided to go. I’ve heard more and more about how beautiful it is and how it is definitely not something to miss.
And our final day in Paris we have the Introduction to Paris… seems a little backwards but we’ll go with it. The plans are to walk around with our EF tour director and go through the Latin Quarter which is an area packed with French college students where we will then make your way along the Seine and check out les bouquinistes, which sounds like a little market. On to the Louvre Museum to see the Mona Lisa (another touristy stop I’m excited for)!! Then to Notre Dame Cathedral (the Hunchback of Notre Dame was definitely a favorite childhood movie) and an evening Seine cruise and another chance to check out the Eiffel Tower.
All in all, Paris sounds like it’s going to be an awesome stop!
