|The metro line we rode most often|
We started the day back at Notre Dame. I couldn't leave this city without walking down the aisles of this beautiful place one more time.
My sister is a voracious reader so no visit to Paris would be complete without stopping in at Shakespeare and Company, an institution for both readers and writers since 1951.
Nearby was a church I read about in one of my guidebooks, Saint Severin. This church had the most unique stained glass windows
One of the places on my must-see list was Napoleon's tomb. It is in a chapel at the Hotel Invalides.
We returned to see the Eiffel Tower in the daylight.
This monument, the Flame of Liberty, is near the tunnel where Princess Diana was killed and serves as an unofficial memorial to her.
The vastness of the Louvre is astonishing. It would take days to see it all so we focused on the most famous pieces.
Here are some exterior shots. The Pyramid was quite impressive.
We headed back to our hotel in the Latin Quarter and had some dinner at an American style restaurant. Even though we were exhausted, we took a walk down to Notre Dame and the streets were alive on this Friday night with people celebrating the start of the weekend. As we strolled, the energy of the people made me feel like a Parisian. It was an incredible feeling.
