It’s been more than a week since I returned from the City of Light. I have been spending a few hours each day to sort through 2,000+ photographs and piece together my six day trip. There was very little planning that went into our trip. We each grabbed a pocket size guide book (Rick Steve’s Paris and Michelin the Green Guide Paris) to help us along the way.
Paris is a great city for travelers. It’s similar to New York in that it’s a city made for walking and when your feet start screaming at you there is probably a Metro station a few blocks down. Here’s how we went about our first day.
Early morning arrival @ CDG, hotel check in near the Arc de Triomphe, then on our way.
We walked up the Bd de Courcelles, passing through Park Monceau on our way up to Montmartre, home to windmills and Sacre Coeur. We followed the guide books (both has a chapter on Montmartre) on the walks to see the beautiful neighborhood as we slowly made our way up the hill to the Basilica.
In the afternoon, we made our way to Printemps for a relaxing drink and a view of the Eiffel Tower in the sunset at Le Deli-Cieux.
