We entered Notre Dame and walked around marveling at all the chapels and detail. After we toured the inside we used our museum passes for a free tour of the towers and bellfry's. Can you say stairs? But the views were amazing.
A quick tour of the archeological crypt and then
we walked to the back of Notre Dame and across the bridge to Ille de St Louis. We had a nice lunch at a little cafe overlooking Notre Dame. Here John is contemplating what his seafood platter covered in cheese is going to taste like :)
After what seemed like an eternity getting our check we took a little walk along the left bank over to St Chapelle. The stained glass here was amazing! It didn't photograph well at all. It is one of those have to see it in person kinda places. A little further down the way was the Concergirie. We got to see the cell Marie Antoinette was kept in. Further walking led us to pont Neuf and then along the Seine to the Louvre where I picked up a Paris mug and a frap from starbucks and some postcard envelopes. Since we were on a straight shot to the Arc De Triumph we decided to walk the entire Champs de Elysses.
What fun! We walked up more stairs to the top and were treated to amazing views of Paris. We happened to be there when they rekindled the flame on the tomb of the unknown soldier.
Dinner at the Cafe Bosquet where we ordered Escargot. An evening walk to the eiffel tower with crepe in hand. It was too late to go up the tower so we tabled it till the next day.
