Paris Part II

There are a lot of amazing museums and attractions in Paris.  With the amazing public transportation and by using the Paris Museum Pass, we were able to visit Notre Dame, Musee D'Orsey, the Eiffel Tower, and Arc de Triomphe in one day, while touring Versailles and the Louvre the next.  Busy busy!!

Notre Dame was beautiful!!  The gorgeous stained glass windows and amazing architecture...but I loved the outside the most!  We completely forgot to climb the stairs and visit the gargoyles, still kicking ourselves for this!

Musee D'orsey was by far my favorite museum!  My favorite type of artwork!  You couldn't take photos inside, so I only have one of me with the sign!

The Louvre was huge!  It's usually recommended that you spend an entire day in there.  Tim and I are not people who can spend an entire day in a museum (OK, I'm not!) even if we're both history nerds!  We went to see Mono Lisa and then visited a couple of the Egyptian and Ancient Greece exhibits (love)!

The crowd around the Mona Lisa!
 Ahhh so cool!

Versailles was incredible!  So so so much wealth and beauty and extravagance all over!  We could have easily spent some more time there, pretending it was our summer home!

Hall of Mirrors!
Seriously, the house and grounds are so huge!!

Look at those nerdy shoes!

Incredible ceilings everywhere!

Seriously, the house and grounds are so huge!!

It's so amazing seeing historical cities and all their preserved history that go back so much further than American cities, let alone the West Coast!!
