Paris Highlights

We had a great week in Paris. Here are a few highlights from the week:

Seeing a Monet look-a-like while visiting the Waterlilies at The Orangerie:

Staying in the Marais neighborhood, near the Bastille was a great choice. We also really enjoyed sightseeing in this neighborhood, especially the self guided Carnavalet tour in the Rick Steves’ Paris guidebook:

Hanging out with our pals the Smittens and seeing their Paris show:

Walking along the Seine seeing the festivities and dancing on the Paris beach:

Finding the Promenade Plantée(elevated park) and Marché de la place d’Aligre (flea market/and food market):

Taking another photo of us in front of the Eiffel Tower during the twinkle on the hour almost exactly 10 years later. Click here if you dare view the version from 2000.

Shelling out the money this time to actually go up the Eiffel Tower at dusk:

Seeing the twinkle when on the Eiffel Tower:

See some food highlights and the Tour de France photo in earlier posts.  For all of our pics from the week click here.
