1000 places to see Paris

For Christmas in 2003, Sharon bought me the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, A Traveler's Life List.

Of the top ten sights listed in this book for Paris, we did seven of them on our trip, including Arc de Triumphe, Basilique du Sacre-Coeur, the Eiffel Tower, Hotel de Invalides and Napoleon's Tomb, the Lourve, the Musee D'Orsay and Norte Dame.

The three things listed in the top ten that we did not see were the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Musee de Cluny and the Musee Picasso. The Pompidou is a modern art museum, while the de Cluny is a medival art museum.

The book also had a number of other must-dos for Paris. One of things that we did on this list was a Bateau-Mouche Cruise on the Seine. We went on the cruise just after sunset and we all felt that this was one of the high points of our time in Paris.
