After spending 2 days in somewhat warm sunshine in Nice, I am back in the cold European weather again. This morning we took a flight from Nice to Paris. While I plan to write about my visit to Nice a little later, I would certainly like to tell you about my first day in Paris.
When we arrived in Paris we had to take 3 different metro lines from the airport to reach our hotel in Guy Mouquet. The journey was tiring but the hotel was pretty decent so we were happy. But the lesson is – most metro stations in Paris have a part you need to pass through with no escalators. So if you have luggage, it’s worth spending on a taxi.
Our first destination from the hotel was quite obvious – the Eiffel Tower. We took a metro, got off at Champ de Mars and walked to the monument, took loads of pictures, climbed up to the top, took more pictures and finally went to Rue Cler (a lane nearby) to grab some food.
To end our 1st day we ate at multiple stalls from a street fair near the tower and took a metro back to the hotel.
