We arrived in Paris early morning, and had a full three days to enjoy ourselves. It would be impossible to quite remember exactly what we did day by day, so I will give an overall breakdown of the things we did and the sights we saw. We decided to stay at Oops! Hostel, which was funky (in a good way!) to say the least. We met a bunch of other people our age, including some entertaining Aussies, whom we spent some time with at night.
Continuing with our need to be cost-efficient, we decided to go on 2 guided walking tours of Paris, which are absolutely free. Sandeman’s New Europe gives great tours! We participated in The General Landmarks Tour and the Monmartre District Tour. (After looking on the website today, it looks like the District Tour isn’t free anymore…) In a few short hours you have the opportunity to see so much that Paris has to offer. But only partake in the walking tours if you have the energy to do so; it gets tiring! You won’t even realize how many miles you have walked with all the amazing landmarks the guides have to show you! All of the information is so overwhelming, I wish I could remember it all. Here is a brief collection of the sights we saw while on the tours:
Paris Obelisk [why did I choose this first, not iconic Paris at all…]
Sacre Coeur basilica: the white church on the hill
I love, love, loveeee all these gargoyles!
