France Paris Day 2

Up a little late, we had breakfast at the hotel. Afterwards, we got Metro tickets and headed to the Louvre. The guidebook describes the Louvre as the largest museum in the Western World. The size is astonishing. You could easy spent two full days roaming the place and still probably not do everything justice. We spent half a day and tried to hit the high points including the Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa.

Jumping back on the Metro, we headed towards Ile de la Cite where Norte-Dame de Paris is located. We had lunch on a side street and then headed towards the Catheral. After touring the church, we headed back to the hotel.

After we short nap, we got back on the Metro and headed to the Arc de Triumphe. We wandered around the Arc and then started walking south down the Avenue des Camps-Elysees. We had a late dinnner at a restaurant on the Camps-Elysees. We finished the evening wandering down the avenue as far as Avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was late night; we were not back in the hotel unil eleven.
