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.
More pictures from my Euro trip in 2008 with my school and EF Tours. While on this trip we visited France, we drove to France via bus from Italy. On our way to Nice, France we made a stop in Eze where we visited a parfumerie which I wouldn’t recommend if you had allergies but it was defiantly neat to see and I bought a perfume there! From there we had about a 30 minute bus ride to our hotel. The next day we took our bus to Monaco where we had free time to walk around. It was beautiful there but very ritzy. After that we came back to Nice where we went to the beach and went swimming but although the beach was beautiful and the water was super blue, the beach itself was super rocky and hard to walk on. After the beach we climbed a bunch of steps that were along the side of the beach up a mountain-type thing where there was a beautiful waterfall at the top with an awesome view!! Overall Nice and Monaco were beautiful! They aren’t the typical places in France you think to travel but they defiantly should be!!
