Day three in Paris was the day I visited the biggest tourist attraction of the city, the Eiffel Tower!!! There are three levels to the tower and we only went to the second level which, believe me, is high enough to see the whole city. We decided to get the whole experience and take the stairs instead of the elevator. Which was a good idea but was a lot more tiring than I expected and a little scary too. But I think if you’re able to take the stairs then you definitely should, it makes getting to the top so much more worth it! And sorry about the million pictures :)
Next we went down a street called Champs Elysees and it has many high-end fashion stores. Also at the end of the street is another famous monument of Paris, the Arc de Triomphe!!! But my favorite shop on the street is a place called Laduree and if you do not know it is famous for its french macaroons :) This shop was quite possibly my favorite part of Paris because not only do I love macaroons but I also love Gossip Girl :) and one of the main characters in the show, Blair Waldorf, loves Laduree and their macaroons so of course it was one of the places I most wanted to go while in Paris. I think we ended up buying macaroons from Laduree 4 out of the 6 days we were in there!
Later in the night we got a personal night tour of Paris by Tessa’s husband. We got to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night (something it does every hour on the hour for 5 minutes). We also got to see the famous opera house, Sacre Coeur (which is a church that sits at the top of the city and gives a great view of all of Paris), and of course the famous Moulin Rouge!!! However it costs over 100 euros a person to see a show at the Moulin Rouge so we decided to skip going inside.
So that concludes my day 3 of Paris and tomorrow ill be posting about my trip to the Louvre, the largest museum in the world!!!!
Til next time :)
