Another whirlwind day in Paris with 23,000+ steps and 50+ flights of stairs has left the group pleasantly exhausted. So this will be a short post as there is packing to be done before our 6:45 hotel departure! This morning we went to the catacombs where the remains of over 6 million people are kept deep underground in a centuries-old crypt. Afterwards we made our way to Versailles where the students enjoyed a guided tour, time in the gardens and finally some shopping time in the town. After a yummy dinner of steak and fries it was off to the Eiffel Tower for approximately a million pictures and a final wave goodbye to this beautiful city. We leave on a jet plane for our direct flight to Toronto at 11am tomorrow, arriving at Pearson at 1 local time. Check your phones between then and about 4pm to know when we've landed and will arrive at ODSS.
Free time in Paris/Optional Excursion Choices (Notre Dame, Louvre, etc)
Dinner at a local restaurant
Evening Visit to the Eiffel Tower
Use the Metro to Bir Hakiem station and disembark at the base of the Eiffel Tower, awe-inspiring when lit up at night. Those who are feeling adventurous can take the elevator up to the third level and gaze down across the Parisian landscape.
