Today we continued to embrace all that Paris has to offer, this time starting with a comprehensive walking and Metro (subway) tour of the city. I kid you not when I say we all walked 22,000+ steps and covered over 10 miles over the course of the day!! Oh and 60+ sets of stairs hopping on and off the Metro!!! But we were efficient, seeing sights like the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Les Invalides, and so much more!!
After our waking tour we made our way up to Montmartre for lunch. Here the kids were given a number of choices to consider while they ate... To join one of three chaperone groups heading to a)the Pantheon, b) Napoleon's tomb or c)the top of Notre Dame cathedral. You know what the best part was... Everyone came back from their excursion happy with their choice and feeling they had seen what they wanted to in this lovely city. Can't ask for much more than that!!
After the excursions all three groups returned to the hotel to freshen up before heading to the Champs Élysées for dinner and a show!!! The Lido was beyond words.... How can one articulate the artistry and talent showcased there?! The kids were awestruck to say the least. One long but amazing day in Paris down, one more to go!!
