Busy couple of days in Paris. The weather has been great, and we have managed to take in all the major sights in the city. The apartment is fantastic, the best Airbnb apartment yet. Michel the host even took the time to show us around the area to get the feel for the place. Great.
Today we spent about three hours in the Louvre – it is huge, we could definitely spend days there and still not cover it all. We headed for the Mona Lisa first, like everyone else! Huge crowds there. Also got to see the Venus De Milo and the Ancient Egyptian antiquities which was really impressive. We also went to Hospital Invalides and Napoleons Tomb then took the Metro back home.
Yesterday we managed to go up the Arc De Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower in the same day to get great Paris views. We also went to the Museum D’Orsay with all the great impressionist painters. Busy days.
