Palace of Versailles & Le Tour Eiffel |Exploring Paris 3

Tuesday, 7 April 2015

So as my Paris trip blogs continue, today I'm bring you along to the Palace of Versailles and Eiffel Tower.

We managed to haul our over walked legs out of bed early that morning and fuel our bodies with a pain au chocolat from a local bakery and some fruit. Eating on the go we made our way to Gare du Nord and hopped on an RER C train to the palace.

When we arrived it was only a short walk, one might call it a warm up for the amount of walking there is to do around the gardens, and found the grand palace entrance. Once again we took advantage of the free admittance for all EU residents under 25 and walked straight in!

Missing something very key for imitating this statue!

The palace is a massive place of gold, grandeur and luxury.

After being blown away by the brilliance that was the palace we went back into central Paris, stopped off at the hotel, had a bite to eat and then used our Metro skills to visit the lit up Eiffel Tower! Walking around the glowing structure whilst munching on nutella crepes was just a perfect ending to the day.

Day 3 over and done in Paris! So sad that there's only one more day left but I must say it's a good one.

Thanks for reading,
