Paris: Eiffel Tower & Louvre

Our fourth day in Paris was focused on two of the big “check boxes” – the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum.

Loved the Eiffel Tower!

We had to stand in quite a line and I wasn’t sure how it would all be…

It is an impressive sight to see up close:

And the views from the top were amazing…

After the Eiffel Tower, we went over to the Louvre.  The Louvre is HUGE.  And overwhelming.

We saw the Mona Lisa (this is the crowd to get through to get a picture… my actual pictures of her came out poorly because of the protective glass in front of her)…

And this is Mister in search of the poker playing dogs…

The Louvre itself (a former palace / fortress) was a beautiful building…

But I will admit to being frustrated when we go stuck in Egyptian Antiquities collection!

After dinner we went on another nighttime sight-seeing trip – this time to see Notre Dame:

And another shaky video! This is part of the ride up the Eiffel Tower:
