Paris!

This is the first place we went to when we arrived in Paris. It gets cold at night, yes even during the summer.

It is a great square and in it the visitor can admire the Napoleon spoils from Egypt. It is also the place where the French Revolution took its tools in peoples heads, but please admire the old Egyptian art.

We were able to ride around this magnificent fountain on our tour bus! Such an incredible sight! The artwork is really very defined and well done! Loved it! Had to toss a coin in this fountain and make a wish! 💃

A place that captures old and new. Don't miss the Paris wheel if not to busy great views from the top.

I was more enamored with the historic fact that the famous French guillotines deaths took place here- including Marie Antoinette- than I was with the obelisk.

One of those places you think you want to visit and it is worth the walk. All monuments are part of our history and in Paris there are many but this one has a bloody history and the name belies that history. This is where the guillotine was used for executions during the French Revolution.
