You might like to sit yourself down with a cuppa or some popcorn or something because today I'm sharing more photos (a whole lot more) from the Paris leg of the school French trip. And to be honest, these aren't even all of them! Yikes! If you wanted to see a few from when we first arrived in Paris, you might like to read here. Anyhoo, onwards and upwards: did you know you can climb all the way to the top of the Arc de Triomphe? You can! It is a massive, massive climb (so many stairs) but very well worth it. You get a spectacular view of the city including the Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower.
We spent some time exploring Sacre Coeur and Montmartre as well. I loved seeing all the artists in action and I had the best omelette of my entire life for lunch. No exaggeration.
Then there was the big kahuna itself; the Eiffel Tower. It rained but it was still insanely beautiful (of course.) Make sure you book your tickets for the tower online. You still have to queue up to enter but for nowhere near as long. Afterwards we took a river cruise along the Seine. I can thoroughly recommend doing this - you get to see so, so much of the city. Obviously during the daytime there are lots of photo opportunities, but taking the cruise at night is also a great experience - Paris lit up is too pretty for words, not to mention you get an awesome perspective of the Eiffel Tower.
We did a whole bunch of other stuff while we were in Paris (believe it or not, I didn't photograph it all with my big girl camera!) You can see a whole bunch of the day-to-day stuff from the trip on my Instagram: @lookseebynaomifenton.
This post began at the Arc de Triomphe and ends there as well. I couldn't help taking a few shots as we drove past on the bus, heading out of the city and on to the next part of our trip, which included a look at Bayeux, Mont St Michel and St Malo. And, yes! There are more photos of those to come, too!
