On my 2008 Euro trip we visit Paris, it was our last stop on our trip through Switzerland, Italy and France. Unlike the other destinations where we bussed everywhere and between countries we took a train to Paris from Nice. The train ride was 6 hours long and was pretty cool because you got to see France from a different point of view as oppose to a highway. Although I got very motion sick. The first night in Paris we walked around to see the city at night and saw the Eiffel Tower from a far which was kind of neat. The second day in Paris we took a bus around Paris with stops in the top tourist areas, we also had free time to explore. In the evening we went up the Eiffel Tower, since we traveled in March it was very cold and very windy! I loved Paris. I mean it is one of the main tourist cities in Europe when you think of France you automatically think of Paris but I am glad I only spent a few days there as it was a bit scuzzy and there wasn’t that much to see besides the main tourist attractions. There are defiantly different areas of France I’d prefer to visit instead of Paris.
