Day 333 - Les Paris Diaries

Today i woke a little late. At around 8 AM. First things first, had a yummy breakfast. Headed for the city tour. First stop, we went to the Eiffel Tower. No trip to Paris is complete without visiting the tower. So took the tickets for the top floor (Nearly 200 meters plus from base). I had another horrifying moment when a security guard called up my name and when i went to him, i realized i had dropped my wallet. So for the remainder of my trip. i decided to keep my wallet in my front pocket so it doesn't fall down. Initially took the lift to the 2nd floor and took a few pics.

                                         This is the view from the 2nd floor

After the grand eiffel tower tour, headed back to notre dame to get a few souvenirs from the cathedral. Then headed for the Paris Opera. Paris has so many beautiful monuments, palaces, etc that its absolutely impossible to cover all of them in just 7 days. But its quite good to cover the best of the best. Paris Opera is one of them.

                                 This is a view of the ceiling from inside the actual opera.

 After the Opera headed to Troacadero and went to the slightly less popular but amazing Marine Museum. Some of the pictures below are from the museum.  Another amazing part of these historical places is that you rarely require a tour guide. Many places give you a phone-like device where you have to choose a language and use it like a phone and an automated voice system will guide you through the museum.

Headed back to hotel after that. Since i was too tired and had a late lunch, wasnt in any mood for dinner so slept by 7:30 AM as had to wake up a bit early for Disneyland next day.
