I Love Free Walking Tours!!
When I woke up the next morning, I had breakfast and headed out for the free walking tour. I’ve done these in most of the major cities I’ve been to. I love them, one, because they’re free, and two, because the guides are always very interesting and tell you stories. Although we didn’t actually walk by a few of the main sites, we were able to see them from various points on the tour. Here’s a few of the pics I took.
Here you can see Notre Dame in the distance.
These next statues were really funny. Apparently, King Henry (not sure which one) has his friends over for a party one night, got them all really drunk, then took pictures of all of their faces. He then had an architect create statues of these faces all around the palace he lived in.
Here’s the famous pyramids inside the Louvre.
Here is the Eiffel Tower out in the distance. It started to get cloudy later in the afternoon, so it didn’t make for the best picture.
Here is a view down the Champs-Elysees from the far end of the park behind the Louvre, and you can see the Arc de Triomphe at the end.
