I was very excited to go to Paris. It was going to be my first time and I was going to hear people speaking French around me for days. From the first moment we arrived, I felt like I was in a French movie.
The obvious activity for our last day was visiting the Eiffel Tower. Having pre-booked tickets helped us avoid the queues. That is a practical trick for those who are planning to pay it a visit. We made it to the top by an elevator and climbing up the stairs. The view was incredibly beautiful at the top.
La Défense was one of the regions in Paris that we wanted to visit. We spared half a day to see this business district. The most iconic architecture of this region is Grande Arche which was completed in 1989. It looks like a big cube and is aligned with Arc de Triomphe and Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel in front of the Louvre.
This Sunday was a perfect day to spend in the Louvre Museum. We knew that the museum was huge and one day would not be enough to see it all, but we made a good plan and prioritized the most interesting parts to us. This iconic 12th century palace has been used as a museum since 1793. The building has eight main parts and 380.000 art objects are exhibited there in total.
