France trip day 6: Paris

Since it was our last day in Paris, we decided to just spend the whole day walking around and of course, eat!

I found lots of cute Parisian apartments I would happily live in :)

we ate a a boulangerie that was voted the best baguette in Paris back in 2007


French pastries

We also stopped in the big department story Galeries LaFayette and saw all their Christmas decorations


We also spent most of the day around the Eiffel Tower

the one on the right was our Christmas card


Then we walked up to the top of the Eiffel Tower for the sunset...

sunset over the River Seine


looking up from the second deck

Arc de triomphe, Champ du Mars, Napoleon's Tomb


And then went back down to watch the light show


Dancing in front of the Tower, just for fun!

dinner outside (all the restaurants had gas heaters)

I've seen those Christmas decorations around the web, but how amazing that you saw them in person. Christmas would be the best time of year for Paris.

I really enjoying reading your Paris trip. BF and I are thinking of going in Feb or March. Did you guys join a tour or plan the trip yourself? Did you join a day trip to Versaille or did you go on your own? I would appreciate your input. BF wants to join a tour group but I rather go by ourselves.
