What a terrific way to celebrate our daughters birthday with a trip to Paris. It’s on her bucket list! We had a wonderful time getting to see all the main attractions on the hop on hop off bus. The Louvre Museum and the Eiffel Tower were on her list and Eric wanted to see the cathedral. A couple of days on the Hop on Hop off bus help you get your bearings of the city. After that the metro would be more doable. You don’t need to rent a car to see Paris because the public transportation is the best plus the road rules are a bit bizarre in this country to say the least.
Buy tickets ahead of time from your hotels website instead of standing in long lines. We stayed at Hotel Tourisme Avenue which was excellent and within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower!
