We walked over 15 miles of the streets of Paris both above and below ground. highlights included the Catacombs under the city where millions of people have been buried. Also, the Eiffel tower is spectacular at night – especially for the first five minutes of every hour when it sparkles! Seeing what was left of Notre Dame, it’s painfully clear why the fire a few months ago was such a devastating loss to Parisians. I’m really disappointed I didn’t get to see it in all its glory. We also toured the building Where Marie Antoinette was held before executed.
I wasn’t sure if Paris could stand up to all the hype but this city has exceeded my expectations.
