I fell in love with the Eiffel Tower in my teens, but it wasn’t until our little trip did I manage to get to the top. I am delighted to share that the experience is well worth the wait too! Not only is the view breathtakingly good, but we were also over the moon to see a proposal taking place too 😀 Well, it wouldn’t be a trip to Paris if we didn’t see one! The tower also lights up at night and twinkles on the hour after dusk and we recommend it as one of our top things to see if you manage to go. It’s simply mesmerizing!
Another treat is a visit to the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens. Every Sunday there is educational displays; people were being taught flower arranging and we got to see honey bees do their thing when we went. These incredible free exhibitions aside, the gardens are so peaceful with plenty of seating and stunning grounds to get lost in. A live brass band, a cute little restaurant and a great little pond with rentable boats to play with provide much entertainment, but we were happy playing with the millions of conkers we found on our wanders. You could happily spend a day here if the sunshine is out!
