October 27th–Touring Paris

I hope everyone is doing well.  Today was a leisurely day of visiting some of Paris’ most famous sites.   There is so much history here and so much to see that we decided to travel on the site seeing bus around the city.  We were able to get a good view and hear a audio history of Paris along the way.

We jumped off near the Louvre and took some pictures then walked over to the Obelisk where once stood the guillotine that saw over 2,000 heads roll into baskets including Emperor Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Next to the Obelisk we visited a small museum with the works of Monet and Seurat. We boarded the bus again and saw the “entertainment” part of town including the Moulin Rouge.

After a quiet dinner near the Louve we headed back to our hotel.  Tomorrow we head to Italy.
