Paris with Mum - Day 1

Day 1 actually started after lunch at a local cafe/bar near our hotel in the Marais

We took the metro to nearest station to the Eiffel Tower


We noticed the south piller had the shortest line, we later realised the reason was that you have to walk/climb to the second stage before taking the lift to the top, whereas the other three had lifts all the way to the top....

And, so we began our walk/climb to the second stage. I don't think Mum will ever forget this experience...

You can see the Sacre Coeur in the distance from the first stage

Parisian rooftops

The only way is up...

Let the show begin

Cafe de Trocadero - ready for a well deserved dinner

You can't beat a good tarte au citron to end the day..
